unfair for wireless toyz

Wireless Toyz would sell so much more of instict's than radio shack but they wont let them thats dumb they know more about phones than most radio shack people. treat everyone equally
There are 5000 RadioShack stores, who would you pick to sell more phones? Talk to the owners to cough up more money to have the rights to the phone. Why do you think only BesyBuy had the right in the beginning.
HA!!! Thats the biggest hunk of bull$hit I've heard! Don't be so assumptive. Bestbuy got them first, and we know a $hit load more then they do. But I guess your ignorance is your bliss
It would be nice if WT could get them. I get alot of customers asking for them. Not to sure if we would really out sale Radio Shack just based on the number of stores.

Oh well guesss I'l still be waiting. But at least we got the Dare.
I think one thing that folks forget is the Radio Shack was the first electronic stores to support Sprint back in the day.
You know, we don't have enough for employees yet. We won't be allowed to get on a waiting list for 2 or 3 more weeks. It's hard to tell when we will actually get them.

The reason all lines of business don't have them is that Samsung just can't man...
How many doors does Wireless Toyz have?
We have 4500 doors to sell Sprint Phones.
On another note Please accept my apology for the misguided person on the other thread who seemed to think it important to belittle the employees at the corporate Spri...

$99 instant for newbies, $149 instant for upgrades!
Online ad isn't giving me full details. I love my M1, but...
Actually, it's $99 for new activations, $129 for upgrades for this weekend.
They just changed the upgrade price to 129.99 fyi guys.

Price changed again for this weekend!

$99 for new customers instant, $129 (used to be $149) for upgrades, instantly.

Phone as modem was changed to a $15/month bolt on to an existing data plan, people online say it works fine with the Instinct, but Radioshack's activation system probabaly does not have the new PAM plan yet.
the PAM is disabled on the Instinct
cellboothmgr is correct. PAM is not enabled as yet on the Instinct. Maybe it will be on a future firmware release.

Also, calendar sync is not supported and marketing is not directed at business customers. This also may be changed in the future.

Doesn't matter

If you have ever been in a Radioshack you will know that Radio shack will have none in stock. But that won't stop the underpaid employees from trying to shove one down your throats.
Hehe. I worked at a RS for 3 years and your right on the money. The unfortunate thing is unless it is a store which sells a lot of phones they probably won't have them and the only way they start getting them is to sell a few. It is a stupid system.
