    Is this for real? Does this mean that the Pre will be released on June 30th?

    No, BY June 30th (aka, 1st half of 2009).
    Just the original deadline.

    "By June 30th" means before then, aka the same thing as always.

    The only real interesting part of the response is "Once the launch date of this handset is
    decided, you can opt to place pre-order for this handset."

    That has been speculated about but not confirmed.

    I'm tempted to get it without the discounts, so I can be free to roam where ever & whenever I want.
    The last Palm product I owned was the Zire71..the Prē is bringing me back.
    So, it's bringing sexy back!

    Anyone else REALLY hate getting emails from Sprint lately? Every time I get one, I'm expecting it to be either notice that I won the drawing for a free Pre or an invitation to buy the Pre on the 5th.

    Today's email? How I can save money switching to a family plan. Grrrrr....

    Obviously Customer Care (still outsourced to ACS?) is using an old script in their email handling software.

    I find the best and quickest way to get any answers is to go through chat. That seems to be working right now.
