    I have been reading these threads daily and there are some people getting killer deals on the Treo 750. How are you guys able to do that ?

    Cingular told me that the price is $499 (pay this at the stores) - $100 rebate (Visa Gift Card).

    Some people on these thread are getting on the average of $299, please tell me how ??????????

    or you can PM me.



    Thanks,



    JK

    I would like to know how someone got a 750 for $299. I went with a new 2 year from my old ATT plan so I got the $499 with $100 rebate. I tried using the FAN discount but was told that the 20 percent that I get is off the FULL retail price. Even with the 20 percent, it was still cheaper to go with the new 2 year.

    Amazon.com has the Treo 750 for $149 + Shipping.

    I have placed my order but est. delivery will be 4-8 weeks.

    I'm afraid that Amazon will not honor this price and cancel my order.

    Should I call them and find out ?

    I just called up Amazon.com and the Cust. Service rep told me that this price is correct and my order is legit.

    They are just waiting for the phone to come in by Feb. 23, 2007

    I have explained to him that this phone was $399 outside why so cheap or maybe misprint in price by Amazon.

    The Rep. told me that the ONLY way this item was not be able to ship or cancel my order:

    1. Order is out of Stock and will NEVER be in stock ever again.
    (Won't happen because this product is Brand New)

    Amazon will only cancel your order if the price is wayyy off, like a misprint of $.01 and it's suppose to be $1,000.00

    But the rep. assure me that my order is correct and they have no problem of honoring it.

    I'm so exciting, I can't wait for my New Treo 750

    Well, that's not what I read.
    Your price paid includes an equipment discount of $250 that has been provided to you by Amazon.com for activating a new non-substitute line of service with Cingular and maintaining this new line of service with the selected rate plan in good standing for a minimum of 181 consecutive days.

    By accepting this equipment discount, you agree that for a period of 181 days after your new line of service is activated, you


    1. will pay your balance due to Cingular each month;
    2. will not disconnect this Cingular line of service;
    3. will not transfer this equipment to another Cingular line of service;
    4. will not transfer an existing phone number to this new line of service;
    5. will not change your Cingular service rate plan to a lower monthly service rate;
    6. will not use this new line of service to replace an existing account with Cingular.

    If these conditions are not met, you herein agree to a $250 reimbursement to be paid to Amazon.com. This reimbursement of the $250 equipment discount will only be charged if the above conditions are not met.

    I just got off the phone right now and I mentioned that to him and he say it ONLY a upgrade on your phone.

    NO new Line, just extend contract for 2 more years.

    She gonna put notes on my account that I have called in 5 times regarding this matter and I'm VERY concern about extending my contract for 2 years and NOT opening up a new line.

    My contract expired last month.

    One can select to upgrade their phone and extend the contract of their existing number. This does not violate the $250 contractual terms in any way. It would be in violation if the account was then transferred under another account (e.g., moving to another accountholder's family plan).

    I've purchased through Amazon before and that's how it works.

    Thanks... for the advice.

    I knew that after 5 calls to Amazon the Rep. was telling the truth, if not I have 30 days to cancel.

    Yikes I would jump on this if it didn't raise my monthly bill $40 dollars for data + SMS. Yikes that sucks! I wonder, I have three lines if I can play around with those sim cards to keep my existing unlimited data +mms+sms for $20 a month.

    The reason they used is a load of crap. They cancelled it because of the price, but don't want to admit it.

    Fantastic upfront price. Amazon is the king of cell phone pricing. Though with the contracted 2-yr $50 monthly data plans at $30 more than a comparable mediamax plan, this is still a good chunk of change.
