    My Sprint store still has the Pre on display. Rep said he sold a couple the other day. I recently had some space bar troubles and went in for a refurb. Feels like a brand new phone so I don't think you have much to worry about.

    Thanks. I have had some trouble with refurb items in the past. One instance is my laptop. Pretty bad condition for expecting a quality refurb. But Ill probably take your word on that. If its not perfect, I will not lose sleep.

    Anyway, Any way of getting a new palm pre, or in fact a pre plus through them? Does it just depend who I talk with?

    I've switched out my Pre multiple times and have never (as far as I know) gotten a new unit as a replacement. But of all the refurb'd ones I've gotten only once have I gotten one with a serious problem that was clearly noticeable and they gave me another one right away.

    Seeing as they've been EOL for a while now, it's unlikely you'll get a new unit even if you pay full price for it, unless that particular Sprint store had a massive amount of Pres in stock. And you won't be able to get a Pre+ from Sprint anytime soon, although there exist somewhat complicated ways of obtaining one and getting it to work on the Sprint network...

    exchanged out 1 this week because of the dreaded USB crack but the refurb was worse off...space bar didn't work, wifi wouldn't connect, battery would lose charge while plugged in, battery went from 48% to 0%, keyboard didn't fully light up... so getting another refurb this week and will cross my fingers...very much a PITA.

    Told the sprint girl that this phone is like an abusive relationship...I just can't get out

    they will have plenty of refurb phones available long after they are out of new ones to sell. they know how many they have on their network, how many have insurance, and when renewal dates are up.

    they will be able to support/repair/replace the Pre minus for at least a year after EOL.

    My local store has a pathetic display. But they are out of replacements Pres. I recently brought mine in for repair and they had to ship me one. I asked and he said they were out.

    I just had my Pre swapped out on Wednesday (by the way, it's the best Pre I have had since my original; love it).
