Re: Sprint/Asureon wouldn't upgrade my Touch Pro -> Touch Pro 2

It's an OK screen, but its not CAPACTIVE, it's conductive. Ever notice how Iphone and android are butter? Where as this phone you have to drag your finger against the screen, it's less responsive. Anyways I sent a few angry emails to a sprint.com email address... Hopefully I'll get this worked out.

Also, used phone junk is out of the question. I like my tech fresh out the box with that new plastic smell..

http://cell-phones.shop.ebay.com/Cel...=p3286.c0.m283

Looks like its between $289-$350. Also I'm not paying this lump, I'm financing it throughout the next few bill cycles. I just knwo it's going to bankrupt me. I am cancelling tomorrow and going to keep trying to work a free or reduced upgrade. I told them I'd pay the deductable for it.. The lady thought i was crazy 'sir were not giving you that phone for 100 deductible price' oh but PPC geeks says you do it ALLLLLL the time.

Im not ready for an Android phone yet, for one 4g service isn't anywhere in CA except Modesto. For two, I don't want to pay $10 more on my bill. For three, I'd want the EPIC which is way expensive.

I would rather get this upgrade for FREE or a drastically reduced price, brand new, fresh in a box, with a leather case, head phones, a stylus, etc.. This phone also runs android just fine, even though it's a sluggish conductive touch screen.

Re: Sprint/Asureon wouldn't upgrade my Touch Pro -> Touch Pro 2

Re: Sprint/Asureon wouldn't upgrade my Touch Pro -> Touch Pro 2

My bad what I mean is the newer iPhone/Android phones glide like butter when you swipe your finger across the screen. The Touch Pro/Touch Pro2 is like you have to rub your finger across, applying pressure - and it doesn't glide.. it's choppy.. I'm sure you know what I mean...

I sent several emails to a sprint rep that I talked to the other night that sent me an email communication. I brought up this thread and complained. I am going to cancel it tomorrow and tell sprint this is nonesense give me the god damn phone already.

The same memo went out to ALL Sprint stores, 3rd party or not. The normal TEP rules are 3 exchanges for the same issue before they offer you a different phone.

This thread is turning into a smaller version of the monster that was created when the TP2 came out and everyone tried to scam their way into getting a TP2 for their TP....

Sad really..

Who cares!!!! the device he wants is a year old in like 2 weeks.. Who cares if he gets one for free at this point

People wanna complain about "how" people aquired their TP2, who cares.. the cost went DOWN.. its been 199 for awhile.. thats 150 cheaper than the original asking price(with upgrade discounts)...

When it came to the TP1-the price stayed the same until it was discontinued...

So obviously whatever people are doing to get TP2s this whole past year isnt to bad, or the price wouldnt of come down like it did.. whereas the TP1 never did..

Re: Sprint/Asureon wouldn't upgrade my Touch Pro -> Touch Pro 2

they already upgrade me hella times plus in Tijuana someone ripped off a brand new TP from me and they replaced it again... lol.. So uhh.. I think this is fair actually... Except the damn rebate. I'm scared of that ...

anywyas i raised the rebate to the support.. hopefully they will at least work with me on that.. because that's a major hassle, plus an unknown wait if i get ripped off or not.. plus i have to send it certified mail... and even still it might 'get lost in the mail'
