    FYI: Starting an argument won't work...especially if you're not eligible for the full discount. Save yourself the hassle and just open a new line.

    FYI: I have argued my way before into a new 2 year contract and got all the full discounts for the Treo 755 when it came out well before my renewal date soo thanks though.

    So if you open a new line, you get the fully discounted price? But then you have two phones and two lines?

    My upgrade date is 7/1/09. I have called CS several times, gone into the store and have been turned down each time. Now my account is flagged as a repeat caller.

    I was able to get Sprint to pay 2 months of my bill so I could use that money to purchase the phone. I'm currently on two waiting lists, surprisingly both roughly 30 names long. So I'm thinking everyone did what I did and got put on both lists at both stores. They said they had got in 8 yesterday.. so we shall see. Hopefully if they get daily shipments, I'll have it by the end of the week.

    I have 2 lines (one account) both were SERO. One was full upgrade the other was $75 discount. I e-mailed ecare and simply asked if they could make it so that both lines could get the Pre at $199. They agreed on the first try saying they would credit my account the difference for the $75 line. All I had to do was purchase the phones and scan and email them the receipt. To top it off, I was even able to have the cost of the phones charged to my sprint account (no cash out of pocket). I did this yesterday and as if this morning they have added a $275 credit to my account to bring both phones to $199, assuming the rebate is submitted successfully.

    Simple, easy and very painless. Sprint customer service is getting so much better.

    Of course, it could have been the fact that I was going from 2 $30 SERO plans to $129 Everything plan that sealed the deal.

    The phone rocks.

    My rebate eligibility is also 7/1/09. This is due to the fact that a sprint rep made an error when swapping out my treo 700w for a new one (tech probs). I was told that on primary phone, you are eligible for a full upgrade after one year (by 4 different sprint people). I have had my treo for 21 months. They said they could fix this for any other phone, except the pre due to the strict Palm policy. BS....but maybe a blessing. Wait a few weeks and maybe get a better batch of phones (ie - slider/lock issue, cracks, etc which all seem to be QC issues) and another OTA update.
