    how do you get the developer discount?
  2. #22  
    I went by the Union Station (Washington, DC) brand spanking-new Palm store today. I told the guy at the counter I was looking forward to getting the 700P. He tried to convince me it's better to buy from them at retail then not get locked into a 2 year plan (whatever - I'm not missing out on my $150 discount from Sprint). But, if you're looking for quick, and you've got a store near you, this *might* be the best plan.

    Anyhoo the biggest news is that they had the 700p in the back room! And he showed me the Sprint branded one. Box wasn't sealed but the phone was. (There's a weird short power cable adapter thing that I don't see listed on the Palm site.) I have no idea why he trusted me to hold it and no idea why my legs didn't dash out of the store. Must be the darn conscience over-riding my legs' instinct. He says that he hasn't received an email yet saying they could sell it. Nor the price even.

    Um, the back room?

    He trusted you to hold it?

    This sounds a LOT like that episode of "Diff'rent Strokes" where the bicycle shop owner tries to molest Dudley.

    Hi T-Love. No, he brought it out to the counter though were loads of it on the shelves behind him, too. And I guess he thought he had a reason to trust me.

    If you're getting the Sprint one and if you're having a hard time believing just check out that odd power adapter cable.
    Blackberry 957 -> Sprint Treo 300 -> Sprint Treo 700p

    I echo k_gilly, how do you get the developer discount. I see where you can get the $150 trade-in and a $150 discount with Sprint activation, but couldn't find the developer discount. I'm eagerly awaiting purchasing the 700p so any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Wasn't the official date of release on Sprint supposed to be Sunday? It doesn't seem like anyone is expecting them to be available in sprint retail locations on sunday.

    I've been planning all along to be waiting outside the door of my Sprint store Sunday morning for the second they open... I too have been confused by all this talk of waiting until Monday to buy from the stores...

    That's probably the cable that came with the 650 as well. It allows you to use a generic wall or car charger, put this on the end, and charge the treo. This way you don't have to buy new chargers if you use the universal ones Sprint encourages you to buy at the stores.

    I talked to my local store today. They are usually closed on Sunday but told me they might be open on this Sunday. Now I have to figure out if I should buy from the store or over the phone. I need to change my plan and a phone rep from retention is calling me back on Sunday. Think I can get the phone from the store, get a new plan there, and then change the plan later on Sunday? Or should I change the plan first? Think the store and the phone rep will have the same price on the phone? So many questions, but I need help with them all.

    I'd walk into a brick and mortar all carriers store and comparision shop. They tend to be a bit more forthcoming when it comes to "working the carrier" for best discounts....they also, in my experience, are always a few ($50-75) dollars cheaper and only require 1 year contracts most of the time.
