    Did they say as to when you will receive your Treo Pro.

    I just tried ordering it on the U.S. site, and it only gives the option to be notified when it will be available.

    Congrats on your new super duper Treo!!!!!!

    if you want to pre-order you have to go through someone else like MCO.

    My gut feeling is that AT&T isn't going to carry this phone. TMo probably will though so we MAY have hope for a discounted unit

    The consensus of the community's Magic 8-Balls seems to be "Reply hazy... try again later"...

    On the one hand, they might see an opportunity if it's clear that AT&T has passed on it. On the other hand, they (T-Mo US) have a unique 3G frequency--meaning it'd require a custom radio. And they haven't carried any phones from Palm since the Treo 600.

    Here's a question--has T-Mo picked it up in other countries?

    I'd put more stock in AT&T planning to pick it up and just waiting a bit, though the reason for waiting may not be clear.

    T-Mobile isn't going to offer this phone. Like Q said, the last Palm phone T-Mobile offered was the Treo 600.

    Here in the UK, I could get a Treo Pro for 'free', but I will be paying 35 pounds ($60) per month for 18 months. If someone doesn't use all the texts, minutes and data each month, that's money wasted.

    For my usage, buying the phone unlocked saves me money.
    I dont complain about my monthly payments, cause I pay $35 a month, and that INCLUDES taxes, and my insurance on the phone. I have a SERO plan, and would never change from Sprint.

    I dont talk like crazy, but I do have 500min, unlim night and week. Nights at 7pm, unlimited text, picture mail, vision, and mobile to mobile. So $35 a month with taxes and insurance.... You can see why I dont complain

    So with that plan, i'll pay a tad more on phones, but never over $200.

    I guess if I was in a situation where I didnt want to be in contract, MAYBE, but even then I dont think i'd drop that much. I have no plans on switching carriers, so I dont care about 2yr contracts.

    Hmm... A note about the price. If I were to import the Pro from the US, it would be US$550, plus about US$100 for FedEx (apparently. Good grief, but that's exorbitant). US$650, which is about NZ$1000.

    Ordering from Expansys.com would be 399 if I were in the UK, but I'm not, so it's actually 340.42. Shipping is 21.95, for a grand total 362.37, or NZ$977.

    Now, that's not really a fair comparison, as I'm comparing FedEx shipping prices to DHL shipping prices. Possibly doesn't include insurance? But it does show that the UK folks aren't actually paying that much more than anyone else - it's just that the government is taking a larger share .

    I do a lot of shipping internationally as part of my business...Use USPS, get it insured(!), and use Global Priorty as the shipping method.

    I ALWAYS use USPS for international shipments, as it is by far less expensive than the "other guys", like you said.

    Yes, the 399 includes all taxes. I worked out that if I imported a Pro from the US to the UK the cost would end up being about the same.

    The Pro is now available to pre-order for as low as 322 (inc. tax) from places other than Palm.

    tgwaste I most definitly agree with you. T-mobile here in arizona is so much better than AT&T. plus as I may mention tmobile customer service is so much more helpful than att. oh and I already gave tmobile customer service a call. they have told me as soon as I have the PRO in my hands call them and they will help me set everything up from the MMS settings to all the other great stuff like tzones.

    UPDATE!!

    palm.com has updated shipping info when you try and order now:

    Buy now for shipping by 09/23/2008
    I ordered a few days ago, o I expect is sooner than that. At least we have a date to refer to

    battling a bout of gadget envy as you guys in the EU and US can now pre-order the TP. As for me the PH (Philippines) palm website still shows the Centro and Treo 750 no mention of the TP at all. HKG and SG sites do have the TP on their site but no way of ordering via HKG, and SG just shows retailers when you click buy. I've ordered from Expansys HKG before and shipping and taxes killed what little I saved from buying locally... So I guess I wait for the parallel importers to get their mitts on the TP or wait for palm PH to catch up [who knows when that'll come about]
