    I can't believe it myself. I was walking by the Sprint store today and figured I would stop in and just kill a few mins and see the other phones. Was not looking to get anything different. Just wanted to know I still have the best.

    A Rep. came over and ask if he could help. Said I was "just looking but by the way, do you have the new Hero yet"? He said, "no, in a few days and what do you have now". BINGO i thought, here we go with the show!!! so I am promoting the PreCentral community and the WebOS ins and outs along with how Palm/Sprint are not only working with but giving us more openness to work on the Pre and the WebOS. Then I said "how would you like to sell more Pre's and have your customers rave so much that they send more people in to purchase one from you? It was like I was holding a hunk of raw meat in front of a lion. I went on to show them WebOS Q.I. and Preware. On screen keyboard, modded colored date and battery % on top, Landscape modes, message forwarding etc... And one guy (there is a group now) says, "hey look at the "bills theme". - COOL. So I then talked about Flash lite and how Apple is out. And how Apple is now closed for "jialbreaking" or hacking/modding with the new update on the iPhones.

    To end this long story. They were all beaming and a few got right on the computer to come here (PreCentral). 2 said they are going to now sell the hell out of this and the Pixi when they get it.

    At the time I just change from one of the bills theme to Madolen's Bills theme.
    Remember the contest? You talk about people going "woo"

    Yes, Madolen you were a hit.

    hey I'm in upstate NY too, well east, just north of albany! Need more Pre people in NY!

    I stopped in the store for the same reason, to see if they had a Hero yet too, ugh, they all looked so bothered that someone was comming in the store...the local store closest to me seems kinda rude. oh well...the three other stores are alot friendlier.

    I was in Best Buy the other day exchanging my Pre, and the young lady was very nice to me (exchanged for USB cracks after 30 days were over). Part of the reason may have been that there was a customer in the store who was trying to decide between a Pre and one of the later Blackberries. I enthusiastically showed off my Pre to him and explained some of the advantages. He was unhappy about the lag in emails when I showed him the email app, however. Left without buying either phone. I told the clerk that if he came back and bought a Pre, I wanted a commission!

    What a weird post. You really felt the need to go into a Sprint store to show off your phone for some warm fuzzy feelings? I think you need a girlfriend or something.

    Lol Ive been to the store and Kiosk in GreeceRidge and showed a couple of employees there the same apps and tweaks not too long ago.

    I wouldnt be to impressed with myself if I were you though..they arent exactly the brightest bunch of sales reps.

    and you are aware they are just some third party Sprint retailer?

    Seriously... Pretty sad if you have to sell the Pre to Sprint employees.

    Pitiful... dunno what other words to say. Cause then you have to think how they have been selling it to the other customers that walk in all this time. ugh.

    Killing time before meeting up at the bar with some men for a few beers while grumbled over how the Bills suck d*** last game and then went out and played full contact football. Afterward went back to the bar to have a few more beers, Guinness, and talk about chicks.

    And since when is sales a girl only "warm and fuzzy" job.

    *edit*

    The Employees at the actual corporate Sprint store in the area are pretty good and knowledgeable....but the kids they hire at the mall stores are just that..kids and the turnover there is incredible...

    But you are correct, I wouldnt purchase anything there based on what they said.

    The Kiosk one is but the store is directly connected to the Henrietta one. And yea, they are a bunch of stones.

    Check out Jeep advertisements on televison....They show nonstop scenes of people doing things (driving offroad, basically) that will result in any Jeep dealer cheerfully explaining that your warranty has been invalidated because you didn't use the product for its intended use!
