    Does anyone know what the full retail price is going to be for the Pre? Or, is it only going to be available with a contract. I already have an Everything Data Plan and would like to just buy the phone without signing a two year agreement.

    Someone posted on Digg that it was $550, so take that figure with caution.

    Well, if we are to assume that the maximum discounts and rebates total:

    $150 upgrade price + $100 mail-in rebate = $250

    and the from price for the Pre being $199,

    I would say that the retail price is $449 (because $449 - $250 = $199).

    But that's just a guess.

    Remember tht some phones have INSTANT SAVINGS. So they probably took some money off along with the 100MIR

    Okay, so, assuming this is correct, if a current Sprint sub with 20 months left on contract and a Premiere customer wants to buy the Pre, what would the final price be for such a person?

    I've got 15 months left, and I was quoted by a sprint rep online chat that it would cost me 479.00. And if I decided to change plans,(get a more expensive plan for 2 yrs,) it would still be that price. I'm a prem. cust, btw.

    Interesting. I'd be okay with $479, but would that then be the "retail" price?

    My phone is eligible for $150 equipment upgrade credit...
    Does that mean I can walk out with my pre for $49.99?

    Sound real good to me!

    No, another member posted this just a few minutes ago:
    Retail Price - $549.99
    2-year service agreement - $150.00
    Instant rebate - $100.00
    Mail-in rebate (MIR) - $100.00
    Net price - $199.99 (after full upgrade rebate)
    $150 equipment upgrade credit is actually a "sign-a-new-2-year-contract-with-us" credit.
    The last Palm product I owned was the Zire71..the Prē is bringing me back.
    So, it's bringing sexy back!

    I just got off the phone with sprint and was told that the equipment credit is already on my account and will come right off the price of phone I purchase.

    Guess I will have to see if they honor it!

    It was given to me when we renewed contract in Jan and the other 3 phones
    on my plan where replaced and there was no comparable upgrade available for mine.

    At that time I was told to wait for a phone I want and use it in next 6 months with out having to add another 2 years since we did that in Jan already.

    Have until July 3rd to use it!

    Hope it works out!

    ok, I just called Sprint, and spoke to a woman who said that I will be eligible for the 199.00 price, but not until 9/09. When I told her the website said that my contract has another 15 months and I wont be eligible until 9/10, she said HER system is telling her otherwise.
