HP is currently offering both the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus for free to new AT&T and Verizon Wireless customers who purchase through the HP web store. Verizon Customers who choose the Pre Plus will get a free Bluetooth headset. HP is selling the Sprint Pre for $100, and the Sprint Pixi for $20. HP and Palm have also made webOS 1.4.5 available for download. This minor webOS update offers improved security, better text-entry within web pages, fixes a podcast bug, and better supports the webOS PDK. The system update is a free download available from Palm's support site.

You still have to go through the process of a sale, even if the product is free. Don't be a boob.

Wel, not really

HP isn't selling it, they are redirecting to simplixity or some other troll reseller, if you have an older plan you can't keep it. So more or less this is bullshit.
