    Well, while I went to Sprint and I was excited to upgrade to a Pre. I have had my phone for 18 months, so I knew I was going to have to pay more, because the price on the site is valid when you have had your phone for 22 months. So I was suspecting to pay around $275 (200+75). So, we go in, wait in line, my sister picks out her first phone (LG Lotus) and when we get to the front, I almost craped my pants. So here is how it works out:

    If you had your last phone for 22 months:
    Palm Pre: $550
    24 month discount: -$250
    Mail in rebate: -$100
    Total: $200

    The price I had to pay, had my phone for 18 months:
    Palm Pre: $550
    18 month discount: -$75
    (mail in rebate only valid if last phone was used for 22 months) -$0
    Total: $475

    So I have to wait another 6 months, then I get another $275 off.

    As soon as the Pre gets released for GSM (which it will, there's comments in scripts and source code about GSM scattered throughout the device, along with modem firmware) I will be buying one.

    I hate all these fancy shmancy phones (except for the iphone of course but i don't have that). All i want is a simple phone that allows you make calls and has qwerty keyboard for texting. When my contract is up i hope to get an env3, which is exactly what i need/want.
