    I called 4 Sprint stores in the South Orange County area and I gave them the part number of the Treo 700p (someone provided it in another thread).

    3 of stores would not even look up the phone for me and said that it would not be available in the Greater LA market until June 4 (a Sunday).

    They told me that all the stores in the LA market just receive an e-mail telling them that they were not allowed to start selling the 700p until the official launch date (June 4). One manager told me that if Sprint stores had already started selling the 700pm they weren't supposed to. Maybe it's a Regional thing, I don't know.

    The 4th store was actually willing to look up the phone for me and informed me that no store in the LA area had them yet.

    Take all this with a grain of salt and make your own conclusions.

    In the meantime, have a burrito......

    I've called a lot of stores around LA--mainly the west side, but also as far east as Montclair. I haven't tried them all, but I've tried some big ones like West Hollywood, West Covina, and Santa Monica. Most of them have said they think they're coming in by the middle of next week. Some of the small stores say not until late June. The Palm stores are saying Monday. The best info I had was the kiosk at Sherman Oaks Fashion Square who said they are supposed to have them Monday. I'm probably still going to try a couple of stores tomorrow to see if I get lucky. If anyone hears any good news, I'd love a PM about it though.

    I called around a lot as well in LA and it dosent seem like anyone has them... one store said Monday but that really dosent make much sense if they havent recieved any shipments yet... At first she was acting like they had them in the back then when I pressed her on that she changed her tune... I think I am just going to order from tele sales tomorrow, I spoke to them and they said they can take an order tomorrow, and that they wont be at stores tomorrow...

    I think I'm going to check out a couple of the bigger stores around me tomorrow. If I can't get it there, I'm going to the Palm store Monday morning. Both of the retail locations told me that they have them in but they're not allowed to sell them until Monday, and they will definitely be selling them then.

    I'd tell where there are a few, but then I might lose mine!
    Most say "by the end of the week" and they are expecting about 6 of them...this goes for both Sprint stores in Santa Clarita and the one where my friend works in Hollywood...he's supposed to call me when they get them in since he can't hold half his shipment for me!

    But isn't it worth it just to have it? You could get it from palm and return it when you get yours from Sprint...

    Yeah we will see if any come in tomorrow, I have been calling around... One store said they recieved the dummy today and they usually get phones with in 48 hours of getting the dummy...

    Ok the store on la Ceniga has 15 units, but they are total A holes...

    I called they said they had it, but would only sell it with new activations, then they said I had to buy a Bluetooth headset as well if I was doing an upgrade... when I fought with them to sell it without a headset they said I could get it at the full price but would not honor my discount even though it said in the notes to my account I had one available. Then when I agreed to pay the full upgrade price, they said they had them in the back but they had not been properly received yet, and that I had to wait 45 mins... Waited 45 mins and then they said sorry itís still not "received" yet, and it will be another 45 mins. Told them to go F%$# themselves and ordered from customer service for $399... If you want a huge headache go to this store!

    Well, took the advice from another thread and asked Sprint Customer Support to credit my account for the $250 difference, and bought the Sprint 700p at the Century City Palm store.

    It's true ... if you're very nice with the customer service rep, and note that you've been a loyal customer (since 1997 for me), they will help you without any qualms. Originally, they were going to order it for me, but not wanting to wait I asked if they could credit my account, and let me go buy it instead.

    I've now got it in my hot little hands, and will do the ESN swap later tonight. This particular unit was the last Sprint unit that the Century City store had, so you'll have to call around to the other stores to see if they have any left. The guys at this store mentioned that they had sold in just about the space of a day.

    Hope you all have as good a luck in finding yours!
