    As I was holding for a Sprint rep to tell me, not very confidently, that I could activate and Synergize my Pre while roaming, I heard the recording say that due to high demand, the Pre will only be available in SPRINT STORES and NOT ONLINE OR OVER THE PHONE, until...they didn't say. The rep I spoke to said that other sellers (Best Buy, Radioshack) will come next, and if I sign up for the Sprint insider email I might find out when I can buy it over the phone.

    I can stand to not buy the Pre immediately tomorrow but I don't want to miss the inventory or any introductory offer! And I certainly would rather buy from Sprint over the phone, where they can offer me retention deals up to my ears. Does anyone know anything about this?

    Please use the search as this has been discussed a lot of time in the forums...

    It is to do with the limited stock at launch I think.. and making sure the users know the device so they don't spread any bad word of mouth because they didnt RTFM...

    Do files get embarrassed when they get unzipped?

    It seems like thats the case. I was hoping I would be able to purchase the device over the phone also.

    Funny, I was told by another moderator to stop telling these new threads to "use the search feature"... Hmm... This is contradicting. lol

    some of us are more equal I guess

    The reason the other mod probably said it, is we don't want to get people into arguments about RTFM remarks..

    But as mods it is our duty to make sure people use the forums correctly so we may sometime have to friendly point out people to the search function...

    BTW also see this with an overview of general rules and guidelines..

    I don't know if it was me, but it may have been a mod asking ones to do it more kindly. Not so aggressively.

    This really should of been handled by pm.
    It's inconsiderate to the OP.

    Please get back on topic.

    Thanks,

    If you call Sprint telesales, the initial IVR tells you right away that the Pre will NOT be available via telesales or Sprint.com due to demand. Get off your couch; it's supposed to be beautiful day tomorrow (at least in NYC!).

    i think sprint designated some stocks for business sales (Bulk sale). so there will be more pre than most people think.
