So i just read something in Best Buy's email that was quite surprising...here is what i noted: 1. There is no longer a automatic rebate like there was with the palm pre. According to best buy's email, you will pay $299 up front for the phone and turn in a MAIL IN REBATE. here is the quote from the email : "Phone Offer: While supplies last. $449.99 - $150.00 (two-year activation) - $100.00 (mail-in rebate) = $199.99 (final price). Mail-in Rebate: Requires activation at the time of purchase. Line must be active 30 consecutive days. Allow 10 to 14 weeks for rebate. Upgrade: Existing customers in good standing with service on the same device for more than 22 consecutive months currently activated with a service plan of $39.99 or higher may be eligible. See in-store rebate form, sprint.com/upgrade for details." 2. This is also available in the above text. Your line has to be active for 30 days! This means all the first day pre buyers like me will NOT be able to purchase the phone on the day it comes out. I had intentions of buying it under one of my other lines (that is available for upgrade), then go over to sprint and switch the number to my line. This will not be an option unless you are willing to lose the mail in rebate. This sucks! This makes it impossible for the first day pre owners to get their hands on the phone on June 4th =\ Looks like I may be stuck waiting till June 6th What do you guys think?
