This could be a one day only thing as it says, Available Today. But still, I haven't seen Sprint or anyone else offer this kind of deal for the Sprint TP2.

I don't think that you will see Sprint offer this.  If you do, it'll be for the "BUSINESS CUSTOMERS".  That's who I guess they're trying to cater to with the TP2.

Yeah, It's almost like Sprint doesn't think the rest of us don't matter.

Sprint's obviously not trying to win over any new customers with the their insane over pricing of the Touch Pro 2.
Hell, even the original Touch Pro is $99.99 out the door at Verizon Wireless! Yet at Sprint, $300 with NO rebate!

I dont know how Sprint, losing as many customers as they are, can continue over pricing smartphones like this while the competition (who are already bringing in millions of new customers) can undercut them by so much.

Wake up Sprint.. at the very least, price match what Verizon is charging for their HTC phones!

Re: HTC Touch PRO2 FREE with activation

Guys,

Let's see this for what it is. T-Mobile has crap service and crap coverage. They'd have to give away drugs to get people to even think about going there. Sure, give away the TouchPro 2 for free, get you hooked for 2 years of crap service.

Now, the tradeoff is, wait about 5-10 months, TouchPro2 WILL drop in price, there will be too many newer other phones which will make the TP2 not such a great phone any more. Plus, what do you really get with a TP2?

it's got the same specs as the TP

It's got the same weak camera as the TP

it's got the same OS version as the TP

it's got the same weak memory and processor

The biggest difference between the TP and TP2? a bigger screen bc they made the jogwheel go away.

HOW is that worth all this effort?

Re: HTC Touch PRO2 FREE with activation

Why should we have to wait 5-10 months.  Sprint business customers don't have to.  Verizon customers don't have to.  And I just found out T-mobile customers don't have to either.  They can get the phone directly from HTC for $199.  The Sprint TP2 is not even offered directly through HTC.

It would not be a big issue if cell phone companies did not hold customers hostage for 2 years. Once they have you, your stuck.  Technology is always changing and other companies have to keep up with competition or die.  Cell phone companies can lock someone in for two years and not have to service them.

I think the best answer is to not accept the cell phone companies bribe of a discount and just purchase the phone without a contract.  Especially now that I have a year or so still on my current contract to save the $.

Re: HTC Touch PRO2 FREE with activation

I agree with you about the specs but the TP2 is world phone and you can use it outside of US when you are on a trip.

That is the only reason I want to get it so I don't need to carry 2 phones


I am waiting for Sprint to drop the price so I can get it.

Re: HTC Touch PRO2 FREE with activation

Not sure if it was this or another post athat talked about the TCO (total cost of ownership) between what you pay with Verizon and what you pay with Sprint over the life of the phone plan and phone.

I'm up for contract end in December 2009. From the TCO comparison I saw, I am very much thinking I may go back to Verizon. Better coverage, and better cost overall?

Money being what it is, this is a no-brainer.

I wonder if ANYONE at Sprint retentions is even aware that the TCO for Verizon versus Sprint for the TP2 is better?

Does anyone from Sprint even have a response as to why the phone is more expensive up-front from Sprint?

No, I suppose not, any wonder why they're bleeding customers?

Re: HTC Touch PRO2 FREE with activation

On a related note, I went to Verizon from my company's discounted plan page and the TP2 is out of stock. They have no idea when it will come back and no care if you even decide to become a customer.
