    I tried to get the web price from Retentions last week. I am a 650 owner & have had it replaced 6 times via warranty. Contract ends in August 07 and last week Retentions told me no way. $150 upgrade yes . . .but $279 no.

    Anyone have any luck getting the $279 price recently?

    Maybe a little off topic but I got mine for $279 from Sprint w/2 year contract

    Were you already a Sprint customer or is this a new activation? If you are new to Sprint, they'll hook you up.

    If you did get it thru Retentions, how long ago was it?

    I was 3 months into the contract with Moto Q... problems galore with Q, called retentions and they gave me the 755p for $229... sold the Q for $300 on eBay... Actually I made some money out of this....and yes 755p is one of the best phones I have ever used (changed phone every year for the past 9 years with sprint).

    hey bronx,

    it can be done because i still had 6 months left on my contract and retentions gave it to me for $279. i say you call back and give it another go. if not, hang up and call back again.

    I got the idea to call from that thread. But I called retentions just last week and they claimed they had been too laxed with the 755 and were instructed to give that $279 to new customers only.

    So while I think i got the BS story, I just wanted to confirm if they still doing it and how recently.


    No one on that thread has given any info that recently to answer my question.

    I just wet to the sprint store and bought it. I don't know what Retentions is. I was a sprint customer but my contract was expired and I was waiting to get the 755.

    Hope I answered your question, if not reply

    It appears that the story you got was not BS. But I would try a few times if I was you.

    I got the same story. Apparently, they got a memo that it can't be sold under the $150 + $50 discounts. Been trying for a while now. Very very disappointed. But I will keep trying.

    I told them I was tired of having issues w/ the 700 and I want a replacement NOW, next thing u know...I had a package on my desk the next day

    I don't know your situation, but our contract had expired and we were doing the month-to-month thing. The day the 755P was released, we went into the store and got it for $279 without any arguing, fussing, or fighting. In fact, we got two for $279 each.

    The first day, we got my girlfriend's, then I broke down and got one the next day (shared minutes plan, btw).
    * Stuck patches? Partial erase worked for me.
    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    I had my 700p for one year. I called through customer care twice and they would only give me another 700p. I was very nice . I then tried retention an hour ago and he gave me:

    1. 755p for 70 bucks
    2. upgrade from 500 free text to unlimited for free
    3. 15% of my bill
    4. I did extend for another 2 years
    5. Overnight shipping for free on my new phone

    I thought this seemed reasonable.

    Ordered mine on June 1st, through retentions, for $279. Also got the $15 vision plan for $10 (He told me it was the $20 plan for $10, but checking online today I see that I got the $15 plan. I'll wait for the first bill and call them on it then.) I guess I'll see what the actually charged me for the phone on my next bill?

    You should keep trying. People are still being able to get a great deal.
