Default Sprint Instinct?

Anyone have one? I don't want to change carriers, I currently have a Nextel and it has been great. (not an IC phone though) I am looking toward a smartphone for my next purchase. I will not go ATT... I had bad luck with service a few years ago when it was still Cingular.

I wanted one of those Instincts about six months ago but they kept pushing back the actual release date and I could wait for a new telephone no longer.

I am still interested in one of them as well and was about to go into the Sprint store last Sunday but didn't.

Oh well... I have really contributed nothing to this thread.

I want one, but that means i'll lose my swell sero plan, so that isn't happening. I played with one at the store, it's titties.

I have a palm centro right now. I prefer having a smartphone, mostly for tethering.

I have one and it works great. I haven't had any problems with it.

The only thing that it is lacking is the internet capability. I had the HTC Touch before I upgraded to this and the internet was better with the HTC Touch. But other than that I can live with it. I understand there is an upgrade for the interenet already, I just haven't done it yet.

The camera and the videos are much clearer than the HTC. The PC interface is much easier to use also.

The navigation is really nice. Turn by turn voice directions and accurate.

A lot of options that are pretty cool that you don't get on the other phones. If you're not into the tech stuff it may not be for you though.

Actually you can call 1-800-sprint-1 or Sprint Tele-Sales and they will push the upgrade and give you like a $150 mail in rebate as well without restaring your contract.

Making the phone like $125 after rebates. And in some cases they will let you apply the phone to your bill so there is no out of pocket expense.

The Instinct does have internet. It is just lacking a little if you go from the Touch to the Instinct is all.

If you don't have a Touch then you will probably like it.

Ok, It wasn't like that and I am sorry if you took it that way. If you can over ride his contract and get him one now and offer the same rebates (that they do pay) and not jack up his price (that they don't do) then PM him and get his business. (my experience is they do pay the rebates and they don't jack up prices)

As for local business owners I know that Wireless Toyz can take care of you as well and most of their stores have it in stock. But so can Best Buy (as advertised on TV). And it seems like Liv 2 MX can take care of you too, but I am not sure if he has it in stock, so check them out if you want to see if they can by pass your update time.

Again I wasn't trying to step on the local guy. I was just offering up a way around the updated time. And it seems that Sprint Tele Sales can do what ever they want with out getting in trouble like some local businesses may for pushing the upgrade.

Blah. My contract with Sprint ended on the 1st. I've been with them for like 6 fucking years. My plan is $45 a month, and I went in there to re-sign and get a new phone.

I was told to re-sign and get a deal on a phone, I had to upgrade my plan to a minimum of $70 a month. I was like, "No, douche. I'm not paying more than my current plan."

The guy was a total douche and kept pushing all this fucking crap on me. Way to treat a loyal customer you prick.

I walked out telling the guy I was going to be added to my parents verizon family plan for $10.

BTW- The instinct was sold out. It was between the Instinct, the Palm Treo, HTC Touch, or Centro Palm.
