Discount on 2x treo 600 at store vs amazon

I am hoping to buy two treo 600's this week and get the 2000 min plan with business connect. I noticed that amazon has the phone for 399 vs the store by me for 449. I approached the manager and he became outright unfriendly and said he had no flexibility. In my view I am making a 24 month commitmenment for over $3700 and the store should be motivated to have the business with them not at amazon. Maybe I a wrong, can someone PLEASE tell me what type of control local store managers have on this item. By the way they had 8 treo 600's in stock.

Thank you in advance for the help Confused

Sprint PCS $100 plan

Last month I signed up for the sprint plan with 2000 minutes for 2 phones for a $100. The Sprint Rep told me that I would get unlimited mobile to mobile, vision with readylink and unlimited nights and week-ends. Now that I got my first bill, there is an extra charge of $20 for readylink on the second phone??? I called sprint and the rep told me that you have to pay extra for the second phone's readylink? Has that happend to anyone or is that true???Thanks

Don't respond to Emails, phone calls, or web pages which tell you to call
an "809" area Phone Number.

This is a very important issue of Scam Busters because it alerts you to a
scam that is spreading *extremely* quickly, can easily cost you $2400 or
more, and is difficult to avoid unless you are aware of it.

We'd like to thank Verizon for bringing this scam to our attention.

This scam has also been identified by the National Fraud Information
Center and is costing victims a lots of money.

There are lot of different permutations of this scam.


You will receive a message on your answering machine or your pager, which
asks you to call a number beginning with area cod...

Disappointed in this forum

Just looking at some of the titles of threads on this forum I have to say it's reminding me of the usenet forum. Most topics are "sprint sucks" or "why would anyone sign up with Sprint". I prefer forums such as sprintusers or even howards where I don't have to constantly hear negative attitudes, complaints, "my carrier is better than yours", Sprint bashing, etc. As long as it remains like this it will never be a popular forum. Just my 2 cents of course.

RL2500 GONE????!!!

Calling all phone experts on Sprint.

What's up with Sprint and the RL2500? I just noticed today that on Sprints website they no longer show the RL2500. I understand that it was identical to the VM4500 minus the camera but I was considering it for just that reason, same phone lower price. Is there a new phone in the works for Sprint from Sanyo or was this just a rapid phase in phase out? Sad
