    enjoy your pre! I hope you don't come right back here and complain about stuff you knew it didn't do before you bought it.

    oh and imagine that, you just lied to get your way. or did you?


    really though, I do hope you enjoy it.
    I hope it's more along the lines of they gave him one of the units that they trained employees on. Lol, then he'll have something else to start a conspiracy theory on.

    Dude, lift up the battery cover and check for stay pubic hairs -_-.

    The manufacture dates on the phones are from mid-late May. They JUST made them a couple weeks ago. If they were holding back we would see manufacture dates from an earlier date.

    There are over 100 people on the waiting list at my Sprint store. The phone is a hot commodity. Is that really hard to believe?
    Palm Vx -> Treo 600 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre (Launch Phone 06/06/09) -> AT&T Pre Plus with Sprint EVDO swap -> Samsung Epic 4G w/ Froyo

So I am not sure why anyone is being told they cannot use their $150 upgrade toward the Pre at the $299 price - unless of course you do not want to commit to a 2 year contract - then of course you are going to pay retail.
    I think he wanted the new customer price plus the upgrade equaling $49 =/
    Sorry dude that's not how it works

    Doesn't the Spint + Pre v's $99 iphone + AT&T total amount still favour Pre.

    yes but.. consumers are poor at rationally considering the total cost of ownership, they just see the numbers $99 and that's it.

    Since it seems no-one else here wants to explain the pricing issue in detail here ya go:

    $549.99 full retail price of Palm Pre
    -$150.00 your 2-year qualified upgrade discount (the same discount a new to sprint customer gets)
    -$100.00 instant rebate from Sprint (only 2-year qualified upgrade customers or NEW customers get this.)
    $299.99 POS price (Sprint corp. stores and preferred dealers)
    -$100.00 Mail-in rebate (Which Best Buy gives you at the register, the MIR is only for new or 2-year qualified upgrade customers.)
    $199.99 final price

    If your local Sprint store is making you pay $450 there is either some hanky panky going on or you are not actually due for the discount you believe you are due for.

    Taco, I personally believe you're a troll, but I figured I'd explain this all anyway for those who don't know how it works.
