    Headake,
    I was able to get the 1GB card added after I had placed my order. I just had to be very pleasant and very persistant, telling her that it was not clear from the site whether you were to place your order first or whether you were to request the 1GB card first. The rep saw my point, spoke to her supervisor, and told me that the card would be sent out in a shipment separate from the 700p. Time will tell..

    I tried to resist buying the 700p today, hoping it'll show up on the Sprint website and get a better deal on it. But the power of this thread is too strong and made me bust out my credit card and buy the 700p at full price!!

    Well I called again now...if they knew I am calling so many times they must be hating me and I am definetly giving them some headaches
    Well I tried to be pleasant and try what you said. The guy wouldn't change his mind. So I decided to try the "Headake gone angry mode" I said I am buying a $500+ product just out of loyalty to Palm, I was pretty much one of the first ones to place the order and he agreed with me after looking at the order number and I said I deserve something. He puts me on hold and someone else comes back on the phone (I guess the supervisor). He apologizes for the inconvenience and I say sorry for getting angry. He then asked me for the serial # for my 650 and he added it to my order.
    Now all I hope he didn't just do that to make me shut up and never add the 1gb card. That would really really **** me off.
    Sometimes being polite doesn't get me anywhere.

Sprint will apply it to your next billing cycle.
    Would proof of the purchase from Palm be needed, or just renewing my contract for 2 yrs be sufficient to get the upgrade credit? Anybody else confirm that I would be able to get the Sprint rebate if I order from Palm?

    DO NOT BE PLEASANT!!! You need to let them know who is in charge. Don't *ask* them, *tell* them how it's going to be. They will respect that. Tell them that they are to give you the discounted price, 1GB card, and free shipping. And tell them to throw one of them there Bluetooth GPS units in the box, too.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    I want there to be a GSM one....
    What can I say? A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!

    Asking for the Bluetooth GPS unit might be pushing it over the edge

    I'm going to ask for Cobalt.

    When I pre ordered my 650 through PALM , I got my phone a least a week after everybody else was getting theirs from SPRINT. Not making that mistake again.

    called the ph number on my email confimation due to shipping address mistake. Although placed the order this morning (and got the email) the guy could not find mt order in the system. Finnally I said "I ordered it through the developers link, does that make a difference." He said, "oh yes, for some reason thse take a lot longer to get iinto the system" said probably not show up on computer until tomorrow at soonest.

    Thanks Headake. I called, got the same "you'd have to cancel your order for us to add the 1gb card." I told them how much of a loyal Palm user I am, been a member of the developers site for almost 5 years, ordered very early this morning, and the device is over $500. She put me on hold. She said she spoke to a supervisor and I had 2 options, she could cancel my order now and add the 1gb card, or she could take down my cell phone # leave a note with the manager since he could be the only one to approve it. I gave her my cell phone number, she said he's be there in the morning and would either call me or email me. I told her to please write down what I told her above, and she said she did. She said she understood where I was coming from, and seemed genuine. I always make sure I get names in case I have to call back.

    I also asked her if they knew when the Sprint 700p's would ship, she said it's in the order process and usually takes a day or two then ships overnight from the warehouse. She said end of the week was a good possibility. I hope she's right.

    Again Headake thanks again.

    I also ordered mine through the developers site and it showed up immediately.

    The first order I placed (with the developer's discount) did not show up in the system for around 12 hours after I placed it. I placed my first order around 10PM last night and tried to cancel it early this morning. The rep I spoke with could not find it in their system. I called back around 2 hours later (~10am) and they were able to find the order.

    Not a problem buddy.
    I should've also taken names but I didn't. I will keep in mind for next time tho.

    My first order that I canceled still shows up as "order received" even though I called and canceled it. I just asked her again to make sure the $649 was canceled and she sad the same thing they told me this afternoon that the online order system hasn't been updated, but she sees it was canceled.
