    G, I have the real answer!
    So they cant sell them untill the official launch date ... If true,
    Then I head over to icanbeatali's store, write a check out for the purchase price of a 700p and tax. Date it for the launch date. Hand him the check along with a $50 bill under the check. He sends me off with my new 700p and on launch date, I go in and pick up my receipt.

    Now, that's management!

    Hah... I don't want to be the instigator here, but it would make zero sense to ship phones that have inactive ESNs. That sounds like a story of a person that wanted a good reason to not sell a phone outside of the day that Sprint says is the launch date... you need to go be friends with the manager, if they like you they will help you a little more. I personally have sold a few phones over the years before the "official launch date" and they all worked fine. I'll let you guys know if I get them in today... I don't want to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday to play with the phone.

    lol...... you are welcome in my store at any point. Too bad I can't tell you what store that is... I'm sure Sprint wouldn't be happy with me if they knew who I was.

    Doesn't happen to be a store in Alabama, does it?

    Oh, and for the record... the playbook has the launchdate of the Blackberry 7130e as Sunday... the 700p as the following Sunday... but they shipped the same day from the warehouse. I'm personally ok with that, because if I get them in today then I can carry the demo one for a week before I put it on planogram. Glory be to demo phones we "aren't suppose" to sell yet.

    Does history repeat itself? I can see the TreoDoctor saga staring us in the face.

    What gives with all this "official launch date" stuff? Do they NOT work before then; has some great Sprint god not yet flipped the switch to enliven them?
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    BUT, you did state, you could sell them (700p's) early, as early as THIS Sunday, correct?

    NP on the couple of days delay on the Sprint vs Verizon. Remember, Verizon customers will be paying a LOT more per month than us Sprint customers Let them gloat......until they get their first months bill ROFL

    No doubt Sprint data will be cheaper - but that still doesn't explain how in teh world Verizon can be kicking them out the door ahead fo Sprint. It's like Sprint can't find its backside with a map and flashlight.

    You see.... I am a Treo lover (specifically the Palm versions)... I wouldn't want to keep the public waiting. I would sell one today if we got them in and someone wanted one. Geez... what do I care... if anything I would be making people like this company even more by giving them the opportunity to use this amazing piece of machinery. I'll consider it my own little Sprint PRPRPR $move$...
