    So I just spoke to Carla at Telesales, and she is waiting for 10am to find out info. She was nice enough to take my name and number, and said she'd call me back with info.

    She also said if it doesn't come out today, that it would be available this week.

    Looks like a long week of calling Telesales...

    Oh, I dialed the 888-253-1315 number

    10 a.m. in what time zone? It was 10:28 eastern time when you posted initially. Just curious so that I know when an update might be forthcoming!

    Does anyone know if they'll actually have it in stores for current customers. I have read many threads that they'll only be for new customers, but thought I'd ask. I have to go to a store to straighten out my account as they hadn't been counting my 18 months for a new device correctly.

    I'm still wishing I could get the bluetooth headset from Palm and the discount from Sprint. I'm kind of torn between getting the $150 off from Sprint and signing the 2-year evil deal and just taking the $99 bluetooth value from Palm. You'd think with an expired contract I could get something else other than a discount on a phone if I buy with them.

    Someone was reporting on MyTreo.net that if you specifically ask Sprint telesales about an upgrade, they will give you the Bluetooth headset deal with your T600 serial number. You might try that, as it still gives you the $150 for signing away your soul for 2 years.

    As for the 'only new customers' issue... they can't pull that off.

    Go to the RED phone, and talk to a manager... you'll probably get a big discount if they try, because corporate frowns on that!!!

    10:00AM in what timezone?

    On what day?

    At least we can count on TC members to get a good blow by blow description of this. I know someone mentioned this was like a soap opera.

    Being that I am looking for the GSM model, I am sitting here on the sidelines enjoying myself.

    So, Carla just called me back, and said the phone is not out yet, but it will be out this week.

    The best part? She said she'd call me when it popped into her system so I could go ahead and order...

    I'll still be checking the boards to see if it comes out sooner, but this is excellent service.

    Apparently the firm behind this offer here does a half million new lines of activation a year...If they're broadcasting Monday to the masses, then that's obviously when it will ship from everywhere.

    Sorry for the stupid question, but are you referring to Sprint Telesales?

    It's not going to ship until two weeks before Christmas.

    Embarrassingly, I just called Sprint at the same number listed above. I got the same info from Jeremy that Carla gave out (disturbing that I can refer to multiple Sprint reps on a first name basis!)... due out this week, will call me to confirm an order and overnight it once it's available. Most of us are excited about the phone, but it sounds like a lot of other folks are as well. Jeremy was the second Sprint rep to tell me that the Treo 650 has generated more interest than any other phone he has sold. Then, I got to thinking... is it possible that it's just 5 or 6 TC fanatics calling them over and over and over and over??? ;-)

    Somebody should call and say, "If I order today are you guaranteeing shipment on Monday?"

    Why don't you call and say that?

    So...I've preordered a Sprint T650 from PalmOne and ViennaChannels. Should I also order one from Sprint directly? Which venue will get one to me first?

    with alot of phones being double and triple ordered, there is going to be alot of returns. maybe the next generation, they will learn.
