    Man, looks like $99 is the sweet spot. They weren't even on the top ten best seller list until today. Earlier in the day it was at number 9, but man, in just a few hours it's shot right up there. The number 2 spot is an almost free BB Curve (one penny):

    I'm still not sure whether this offer applies to contract extensions. The price says "with new service plan." Some comments to the article on the front page say "yes." On forum threads I have seen "no."

    Amazon.com: Cell Phone Upgrades FAQs

    Amazon's site says that they only do phone upgrades for AT&T.

    Oh well, guess I'll have to cough up the extra $50 at Best Buy.
    It may seem like I am doing nothing, but on a cellular level I'm really quite busy.

    Looks like the $99.99 price on Amazon has made a LARGE impact.

    I still think it's absurd that this kind of phone is only $99.
    I would, and did, pay $199.

    It's not absurd at all... you'll be paying a total of ~$1880 for your pre over the 2-year contract while someone buying it today will be paying ~$1780... I don't see the big deal...

    Having moved up from ninth to third yesterday it now out-ranks the less expensive (one penny Curves) BB's, and the BB Tour for only $49.99 doesn't even make the top ten.

    I imagine that's overall sales. The list I showed is updated hourly. The Pre is also listed as a new arrival so some of the phones on the overall list have been there longer.

    A comparison between the two would show the difference a price cut makes, but also a comparison over time would show how well it does in maintaining its position or increasing it.

    If your question "what's this" is in reference to the list below, it shows which particular, individualized categories it's also number one in. A comparison between a cell phone with no 3G or smart phone capabilities and a Pre wouldn't give you an idea of how well it's positioned versus other smartphones and vice versa for the dumb phone. Get it?

    It is quite a shocker. I have never ever seen any Sprint phone period anywhere near the top of that list.
    Phone history with Sprint since April 2001: Kyocera QCP-2035, LG Touchpoint 1100, Samsung i500, Treo 650, Treo 700p, Treo 755p, HTC Mogul, Blackberry 8830, Samsung A900M, Motorola ic902, Blackberry Curve 8330, Samsung Instinct, HTC Touch, Treo 800w, Touch Diamond, Touch Pro, Motorola i9, Treo Pro (personal)/Iphone 3G 16GB (gone to make room for Pre), Palm Pre, blackberry tour, iPhone 3GS 32GB

    It's already dropped to number 4 now - looks like Amazon customers are also savvy to WalMart's even more aggressive pricing.
