    I checked Tiger Direct today and they have the following new phones available with a new plan:

    Cingular $179.99
    Verizon $199.99
    Sprint $319.99

    Wow, great deals. It took me a while to find them on Tiger Direct though. You have to click "cellular phones" on the left panel, can't search from the main page.

    Has anyone bought a phone from Tiger Direct? Did everything go smoothly?

    I was wondering the same thing. I might be the guinea pig at those prices.

    I only found the Treo 600 from Verizon for $199, not the 650. Am I doing something wrong?

    Go to www.tigerdirect.com and on the right panel there is a choice that says "cellular phones - new!" That opens a new screen where you type in your zip code in the box on the left. (It could be that different areas or zip codes have different prices). Anyway, after typing in your zip code and hitting GO, you get a screen with phone names. Check the PalmOne at the bottom and hit "view phones" That opens the screen with the Treo 650's and the different carriers. That is where I got the three prices above.

    Here is the really good part! I printed the page with the Sprint prices. I also printed a second page with another phone for my wife. It was a free phone. Then today after work I took the pages into Sprint and asked if they would honor the two prices. The girl said there would be no way. Then she said she would ask her manager. (his tag said assistant manager). She was gone about 10 minutes. When she returned, she said they would honor the prices! By the way, the other phone was not in stock, so they gave me a free phone to be traded in when they got the real phone in. My wife gets to choose between a Samsung PM-A740 or a Sanyo 8200. The discounted price of those phones were $79.00 and I got one for free.

    Hope this is of value to anyone who is looking for a bargain like I was.

    did you sign a new contract?

    Yes, a two year agreement. I switched from Verizon because of the $45 per month data plan.

    Has anyone else had any luck with Sprint matching prices? I've called two different stores and both said, "no way!"

    They did not price match when I took an ad in so its not a slam dunk but good luck to anyone who tries.

    How come the Sprint ones are so much more?

    Anyone see any fineprint regarding the hardware they're selling at these prices?? Refurbs, returns, early serial numbers, etc.?? I went through the process (just short of ordering) and didn't see any disclaimers regarding the hardware. Anyone order from the site that may have deeper insight regarding the hardware?
    Sprint Treo 600 (since October '03) --> PPC 6700 (exactly 29 days) --> Sprint Treo 600 --> Sprint Treo 700p --> BB Curve 8330.
