    For those of you that have already picked up a Centro, would you mind sharing how much you paid? I'm currently in the middle of a 2-year contract, and I've had my current phone for less than 2 years, so I'm not sure how much of a discount I could get, if any. I've also read that your data plan must cost at least $25/month, which is out of the question for me.

    Thanks.

    I did pay full price for it ($426 total). Too lazy too call in and talk to retention, I figure I will sell some of my old phone to offset the price. This phone remind me of how much I miss Treo (been using moto q for the past 6 mo). So far it has been great, no reset, and all my app work very well.

    Paid 209.99 Including tax. Gave me $150 off for renewing contract for two years, then an extra $50 off for upgrading from a 650. Plus I still get to put in for $100 rebate, so I will be looking at $109.99 total out of pocket once the rebate comes back in.

    So I assume for a new customer I'm looking at $199 plus tax, they charge tax on the full amount of the phone of $399 not the $99 price correct? Approx $240 out the door.

    Called retentions x2

    was told because I have only been a customer since April 07 the best they could do was offer me the Centro at full price with a 75.00 discount. 324.00 plus tax....Im not so sure thats worth it.

    Gonna give it one more try to see if someone will offer me a better deal but I highly doubt it....

    Any tips on how to talk to retentions to get what ya want?

    You're lucky that they offered you that!! You've only been a customer for 6 months, on a SERO plan no less, and you now want a new phone at a HUGE discount? Are you kidding?

    Well then you should be happy with $75.

    In fact, I think that I offered the most realistic response so far.

    Let's see... one person told you to threaten to go to another provider. Great idea. Have fun paying the termination fee. Do you really think that a business that has signed you to a one year or two year contract is going to offer a deal to you after only six months? Basic business 101... you must have been sleeping through that one.

    I'm not sure there's any point in talking to retention if you're in the middle of a contract... I'm in the same boat. I think retention would be more inclined to help people who are month to month and are free to switch carriers without paying an early termination fee.

    Well I got it for $249 thru eCare.... which isn't bad... when you figure...

    I just got discounted phones in January for my 2 lines... (when the Q and M1 came out). I wasn't eligible for any official upgrades until this January... and that was only $75. I also renewed my contracts in August when I finally got my family plan converted to SERO. So... Sprint really didn't have to give me anything... it's not like I could walk.... so I am grateful. When I sell my PPC 6700, that should help me with costs too.

    end result-

    got it thru Retentions for 299.00, no contract renewal

    guess I will sell my 755 to make up the cost.

    my account had been flagged since I called earlier in the day, the Rep said since I was offered a discount already this was the final retention offer, I wasnt going to argue, I was grateful to get it under 300.00

    Considering I AM a Sero customer AND I JUST got my 755 in May, I think it was quite generous.

    Hopefully the switch to the Centro is a good idea....
