    This is not new, they've been saying this since they announced the release date last week.
    The last Palm product I owned was the Zire71..the Prē is bringing me back.
    So, it's bringing sexy back!

    My feeling is... more store sales = more accessories to be sold (including one of the most highly sought after accessories in most recent years costing a good amount of cash).

    according to Coal at SG, an internal document states this is the reason it will NOT be available online or through telesales at first.

    Note: To ensure a superior introduction to Pre, it is important for customers to learn all its cool features and benefit in person. ReadyNow does that and so the Palm Pre will not be available through or Telesales for the start of the launch so that customers are guaranteed the benefits ReadyNow provides.

    Sprint had my upgrade discount wrong so a telesales rep arranged that she would call me at 7AM on Jun6 for 2 phones (family plan). They said if I don't buy it when they call they can not hold it for me.

    The problem is that it now sounds like I may be placing an order that won't get fulfilled for a week(s) so I don't know if I should buy from my personal telesales rep (who may not be able to verify a true ship date) or risk getting it in store at 10AM and possibly end up going home with nothing. Argh. Sprint is making it too complicated to offer 2yrs of my cell-life to.

    My sister is out of contract, & she just got a call from Sprint. They told her for today only, if she signs a new 2 year contract they'll ship her a new PRE for $199 on June 6th. What luck...I told her to jump on it of course

    Dear Matt @#$$,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Both the lines on your account are eligible for an upgrade at online
    price. Therefore, you will get the full discount on the upgrade to
    Sprint Palm Pre handset.

    The Sprint Palm Pre handset will be launched on June 06, 2009.
    Unfortunately, the handset will not be available through,
    Telesales and nor can we order the handset for you through eCare. The
    handset will be available at the following channels:

    - Sprint stores,
    - Best Buy,
    - RadioShack,
    - Wal-Mart stores.

    Due to the high demand of the handset, we can't guarantee that the
    handset will be available at the above mentioned channels. Therefore,
    please make a call before visting a Sprint store.

    Just click on this hyperlink to find Sprint Stores, which are near to

    had to remove link. don't have enough posts

    The phone numbers of the stores are reflected online. Please call them
    before visiting to avoid any inconvenience.

    I have arranged a call for you. One of our representatives will get in
    touch with you at within 24 hours.

    Thank you for emailing us.

    5:36:52 PM Agent Chantera
    Having the Simply Everything plan will not speed the process of having this phone. It is not available until June 6. I apologize.
    5:37:48 PM Customer shawn
    ok I also wanted too know, I was told too register online, and I was garunteed too get a pre at my local sprint store, I already registered so that would mean im getting one?
    5:38:37 PM Agent Chantera
    Yes, you would just need to visit the nearest store and claim the phone, but make sure you provide the exact email address you provided online.
    5:39:00 PM Customer shawn
    excellent thats what I was hoping
    Where exactly did you register?
    Palm or sprint?
    And how exactly were you guaranteed a pre?
