    This is getting better and better...the more confirmation--especially from different states--definitely makes it seem like it's happening.

    So Techy4U's posted inspired me to called 4 ATT Corp Stores in Atlanta to see if the responses would be similar to the one Techy4U recieved:

    Atlantic Drive store: Don't know what date we'll be selling the phones
    Peachtree Rd NE: Don't know what date we'll be selling the phones
    Lenox Rd: Don't know what date we'll be selling the phones
    Cascade Rd SW: Don't know what date we'll be selling the phones
    Are you trying to hurt me?

    That definitely seems to be par for the course. Majority of stores I have called have given that response. And I was really wondering about these other stores that people were reporting a Sunday drop day. That's why I've called those specific stores to see if it's a consistent story or not.

    I'm still trying to error on the side of caution, because I don't want to be sorely disappointed this Sunday. Seems like tomorrow/Saturday should def give us a better idea--based on some stores reports to call back then.

    I am so looking forward to Sunday now! But the fact that ATT is not announcing the availability date in advance in not so good for the Pre/Pixi promotion.

    I agree...I just wish I'd hear it from the horses mouth so I can count on Sunday. This waiting is driving me batty....

    Well, I gave in and called two stores in Raleigh, NC.
    1) North Hills - unhelpful lady said expect next month
    2) Triangle Town Center - she asked aloud to someone in the background and after a few seconds, came back and said it's supposed to be this Sunday but they haven't gotten any phones yet.

    YES! It looks like something is happening on May 2nd. But how are they going to launch if they haven't gotten any phones yet??

    Ok...I can not keep torchering myself so this was the last of the phone calls I will do until Sunday.

    "I have an upgrade available...do you all sell the New Palm Pre?"

    Call1-Memphis: CSR-We should be getting them phone let me transfer you to sales.....Sales:We will be getting soon...next few weeks (very knowledgeable about the phone) and let me add your name to the list and i will call and email you.

    Call2:N Mississippi: CSR-Yes we do....How much are they?...Let me check...comes back to phone...we have them but we dont have a price yet but we will be selling them this weekend...are you sure...yes ..saturday or sunday.

    Call3:N Mississippi: CST-Pretty soon no date

    Call4:Memphis: We will be selling soon but no date..from my understanding Palm has a law suit pending and ATT is waiting on the outcome

    Call5:E Arkansas: Not at the moment

    Call6:Memphis: None in stock...should be a week or two.

    There you have it....more confustion for the Palm Pre Plus fanatics.

    Any chance that the few CSRs that are quoting a release this weekend could be getting their rumors from here?

    The CSRs that are quoting "next month" could just be playing games. After all, this weekend will be "next month". But there seem to be too many people who are putting the release several weeks away.

    Knowledgeable and CSR are oxymoron.

    At least it is Canada.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLI… T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Interesting that the one store says they have them but don't have a price yet--sounds like the other store that fernandez21 I think it was reported had the phone but they couldn't sell it because they don't have pricing.

    Definitely tons of confusion, with a little hope mixed it...

    OK, so I called my local ATT store (again), talked to the manager (again), told him that the buzz was this Sunday. He sounded quite surprised, even admitting that he had to move about 20 boxes of new phones out of the way so he could take this call. Sadly, he said none of those 20 were Palm phones. He knows how excited I am for this phone, so he promised I would be the first one he called when he knows of something for sure.

    I called the 3rd corp store that is within the 5-mile radius from my place and was told that is has been pushed back to May 16th. So I asked what was the original date they were shooting for. He said it had originally be May 2nd, but now they are told it's now pushed back.

    He did not hesitate, but answered my question quite straightforwardly. Call me an *****, but I somehow truly believe him. All the stores that said they don't have the device yet lends credence to the fact that it can't possible launch this weekend if they don't even have the phone yet. I think May 16 it is.

    You are kidding right, It is so difficult to wait till Sunday and now 16th may

    Aaargh! I was soooo looking forward to Sunday. The push-backed date just *sounds* credible. Hopes dashed!

    I had just finished telling my wife that things were looking good for my birthday present this weekend.

    But at least now I can go with the Free Shipping at Amazon for my Touchstone and spare battery.
