    Just stopped by my local Verizon store here in Massachusetts (I'm a Sprint user) to see the new PrPrPr&#$275$; $Plus$. $But$ $despite$ $rows$ $of$ $smartphones$, $dumbphones$ $and$ $crackberries$, $I$ $saw$ $no$ $Pr$&#$275$;$s$! $So$ $I$ $asked$ $the$ $guy$ $behind$ $the$ $desk$.

    "Got any PrPrPr&#$275$;$s$?&$quot$; $I$ $ask$.

    "Nope."

    "Gonna get any?"

    "Nope," he says without looking up.

    Long pause while I take it all in.

    "Why not?" sez I.

    "Because I don't make any money on 'em."

    Is there some reason Verizon dealers have low profit margins on the PrPrPr&#$275$; $or$ $Pixi$?

    Ahhhh now that makes sence, and he was full of B.S. they make good money on them. They may have run out and he doesn't know his ### from a whole in the ground.

    went my local VZW corp store in MA and they had em out for display, with a goofy lcd thing above it that started talking to you when you pick it up. has a woman saying now you can organzie karate class for the kids, meetings at work, vet for the dog.... blah blah blah Mom

    the phone next to it, was an omnia, i believe, and when you pick that up a cool guy comes on the screen, and says "Whoa! you just picked up the Omnia II with cool... and great... you can really... your ..."


    stupid advertising, makes me not want to buy stuff.





    Meanwhile, back at the Bar, the horse is like, "no, i was talking about my screwdriver, i named him stan!"

    Guy walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder.

    The bartender looks up and asks, "Where did ya get that."

    So the parrot says, "They're walking all over the sidewalk out there."

    Didn't you see the screen above the Droid? So I went into the local Big Red store and picked up a Droid. A robot appears on the display screen above the phone and says "I am Droid (in a robot voice). I don't wear a tiara and I can crush rocks and knock down doors". I was like whoa, whoa, whoa.

    I just needed a phone that was easy to use and fun. So then I went to the Pre and the guy was all like, "You do know that this phone is for MILFs". I was like whaaaaaaaat!

    So now I'm just going to wait until the Pre Plus comes to ATT where it'll be just a regular phone.
    Are you trying to hurt me?

    If that was the conversation I got, I would call Verizon directly and ask what's going on (and relate the conversation to them).

    I would also have told the guy behind the desk "Well, this time you didn't make any money by not having them, plus you missed a contract".
