Beat me to it.

Is there any actual "coupon" for this... or just printing the ad from the reward zone website?

well i'm sorry i'm just stating what he told me hunny, i hope your right please believe me sweetheart!!!! so i'm hoping!!!!

Here's everything I could find about the battery cover per info posted by Critical and Saumaun

I might be making a fuss over something so simple but the GSM cover looks great.

- Attempted the modification today, the only issue is there is not enough to play with, the casing can fit but all corners are open, now could you mold something in the corners yes, would it be worth in a sense? Not sure that’s all user opinion. But I did bring up to HTC if it would be possible to release a Diamond backing for the Pro and Diamond as a accessory for the Rounded models, HTC was found of the Idea and will normally release this information or design to third party vendors.

I was EXTREMELY pleased with the answer of the GSM cover... Just to be clear, are we talking placing this GSM Touch Pro battery cover on the CDMA Touch Pro that will be released by sprint in 10 days?





You said that the only thing that needs to change are the corners... can you confirm that the cover does fit around the sides like the stock cover? Sounds weird, but is it too tight or loose around the sides, and do the sides match up with the device [minus the corners, of course!] And what about the camera/flash holes - do they match up perfectly?


Sorry if that was unclear... and sorry for obsessing about the backing!

I know you aren't supposed to, but do you think if you talk to someone and they supervise you taking a picture of the GSM backing on the TP they will let you post it?

So basically, it's possible? How does it look at the curved areas show in the picture below? Or did Sprint decide to flatten it?

So does that mean HTC is considering designing a Diamond style Pro battery cover? If so, could you PLEASE do everything in your power to approve the idea? Or promote it to your boss by saying something like 'It will help their marketing because it is unique and stylish'

The information you are posting is music to my ears! Thanks again

Explained to HTC and sprint, that it could be a likely be profitable, It would count as a accessory for the phone and allow customization to the phone - Something sprint lacks currently and needs, Explained also if a battery cover was lost instead of replacing it at cost to sprint a customer could purchase that cover if they perfer ( another profit ). Then to my amazement sprint agreed with no questions asked except would it be possible to do different colors and could the factory cover be available, then there was also the question of covers, I then brought up that the phone design is ment to be shown off but the back portion could be the key for design, Also explained this would be a useful way to promot the extended battery, sprint again agreed no questions asked, and for once there was a pause from HTC on the conference call ( can you say heaven? ). So its looking again so far but has not be comfirmed or put into design.

You just made my week! And it's been a pretty bad week... quarter exams, delayed monitor, etc.

Wow... I'm seriously SOOO happy!

So if all goes well, the back cover would be an optional accessory? I wonder when it will be available!

I spoke with sprint corp today and they explained to me this morning about the News Release, there jumping for joy right now!, I checked all centers and everyone shipped before 12:01.

Verizon phone does show a 7501a chipset so its looking like it will be crippled

More then happy to help, and what is sad is even on my day off HTC wants to discuss the designs, but hey they offered time a half pay, aslong as I can stay in my boxers and do the call from home im cool lol

Bestbuys are supposed to received etiher today tomorrow and apprently there are some set for Sunday morning. This is per Sprint but they did state it was subject to change but not likey!

Re: Touch Pro Release Info (consolidated criticalaudioinc info)

critical, my bb tells me they just got them in and are selling. She said they just sold an upgrade for 299 + tax. I asked if it was the pro with keyboard and she said yes (I asked that because I thought she might be talking about the diamond). I told her that another bb said they couldn't sell till the 26th but she insisted I could come in right now and pick it up. Can that be true? Could some BBs already have the phones from your shipments and be selling them?

Its not a problem at all, it now made sense why sprint was on top of the shipment processing hourly, I was not aware of them releasing a news release that quick until they call me this morning. But was very suprised when they released it, They also stated they may allow telesales to start taking orders on next week if all shipments are completed ( which they are ) so its looking great so far, but again is only being discussed so no promises on that one. But in other news due to all centers released there shipments out early, All management in all the centers qualify for a free touch pro, so of course ( DOES HAPPY DANCE). So what is some accessories everyone has been looking at?
