i have been a spcs customer for over 3 years, had my phone for much loner than 18 mos. and am currently not on contract.

i really want a treo 600 and am trying to find out if there is any way that i could get a rebate other than the $100 (or $150) for signing a new 1 (or 2) year contract.

w/ amazon prices so low, i feel bad buying a treo straight from sprint for $599-$100. (i only want a 1 yr contract). any way the retention dept or somebody at a store might honor a rebate from somewhere else?

any ideas? i really want a treo 600 but can't shell out $500 now.
