    Those who did/didn't get the touchstone what made you make your decision?

    From those that have the touchstone, do you think it's worth $70 or does it just look pretty sitting on your desk.

    Those that didn't get it, are you envious of those pretty Pre's sitting around on their pedestal charging?

    Personally, I like mine. It's suprisingly convenient to just toss (figuratively speaking, of course) the Pre on the Touchstone to both set it somewhere and start charging it. I'd rather not mess with plugs if I can avoid it, and I can't think of a more elegant way to avoid them.

    Note that I did get mine with my S|P discount of 25%, so my price was closer to $50. I also like the matte battery cover, and so that was worth something as well.

    I don't think it's necessary or really worth the $70.

    It is very cool but I was hoping for something I can just set under my night stand and then be able to just set my phone on the nightstand and have it charge. Basically a range of a foot or two.

    I mean you already have to set it on the dock, is it really that hard to take the extra 2 seconds to plug it in? Cool nonetheless and if you have the cash to throw around go for it.

    No

    While I think it is uber cool and will probably fork over the dough at some point; it is an unnecessary accessory at this time. I needed a new bluetooth headset and car charger more.

    First thing I did was rip that piece of crap off.

    Well for me it was only $50, because of an accessory discount of 25%. And yes, it was worth it to me, for the convenience, for the features such as automatically answering on speakerphone when on the Touchstone/ automatically answering when you pull it off, etc...., but especially for the matte black soft-touch battery cover.

    I wish it came with another USB cable, but still, it was worth it to me.

    I don't see the need for the Touchstone. I have to connect the USB to the computer to sync music and transfer files, so I'll be using the USB port a lot anyway. Might as well charge it that way too.

    Sprint Premier customers get 25% off a single accessory.

    I think buying accessories in the Sprint store gets you a discount on accessories.

    Automatically when they check out?

    My mom is the account holder and she is a premier customer. Will I get this discount as well?

    BTW: I'm not a kid, I'm just still on her account because it saves money.

    If you're using that account to purchase the accessories, I would let them know. And I don't see why not.

    LOL... I guess your keeping it for sure. I am trying not to be to impulsive and will give the Pre a real test drive. If it's a keeper, I'm with you and the little door to the USB plug is history.

    BTW - it is $50 bicks in the store here @ precentral. I am buying one with my Premier discount - even if it is slow to charge, it will a great place to sit my Pre during the day.
