Any chance insurance will be letting you upgrade from the pro? My pro's screen just broke and i got 60 days to make the claim. I'm wondering if I should just suck up not having a screen for a little while or if i would be wasting my time waiting for nothing.

They wont let you upgrade for free until they run out of refurbed TPs. I mean, you can always call up and try and work your magic, but on the whole...they like to get rid of there refurbs before offering up there newer models.

yeah that's what i thought, but when i had my mogul, i talked them into sending me a diamond so i started googling this morning to see if people were still able to get that result and i found that people were able to pay them like 20 bucks and get an upgrade. This was with verizon but i'm wondering if anyone has heard this for sprint. Especially since they are doing the tier 1=50 bucks and tier 2 = 100 bucks.

ps. Oh and the touch pro 2 is on the list for tier 2 replacements. that's what got me so excited.

It is a possibility that the Pro 2 will be available as a replacement to the Pro. It all depends whether the Pro is in stock or not. When I was a tech for sprint, the pro was available as a replacement for the mogul for a while. This happened off and on. Your best bet is trying to do an advanced exchange through sprint about a couple of weeks after the pro 2 is released. Go to sprint.com and use the self service replacement option as long as you have insurance you should not be charged. WORTH A SHOT.

do i need to have the 7$ insurance or the regular insurance? and when i took my pro to the store, they said that there was physical damage (even though the damage had nothing to do with my screen going out. sucks) so will the self service option will work.

Besides ebay how are you guys getting rid of you phones, that battery cover hurts to look at. Most that have the TP signed for the 2yr contract to get it. so by the time TP2 comes out it will only be a year. Kinda makes me feel like I have an iphone , every year a new model is coming out. Next year will be TP3, any word if this will have touch Flo 2.6?

Ok, fellas...quick update. So far the launch is still scheduled for 09/08/09. I just talked to my mans that works at my local store, trying to get on a reserve list for the pro2. He tells me what they are hearing at his location is that the initial launch date is most likely correct, but it looks as though it will be a Direct Ship date and that it won't be available in store for a while. In other words, if you want the phone at launch you'll have to get it through telesales or the website. Not positive if care will be able to order it at direct launch as of yet, but as usual, I'll keep you all posted.

The september 3rd date is for direct ship only then september 8th it will be available in stores.

Here is what happens with every HTC phone that comes out. The new one comes out people go crazy getting their phones AE'd and they run out, which will more than likely happen with this one also. I give it two months and they will be out of the TP and be replacing them with the TP 2.

yup jst supply and demand but some devices take forever..... the 6700 came out how long ago and they still have replacements through the online tool..... for those not familiar with the apache it was what turned into the mogul and than to the touch pro and now the touch pro 2..... i dont think that there will be a three i feel they will come up with a new snazzy name and not loimit names like apple does.... come on anyone can add 3g and 3gs to a name and make it new..... be creative, make the name stick and stand out from the rest.

This thing is looking pretty sweet. I just lost both of my hookups at Sprint, so I am already sweating how I am going to get my free upgrade.

Sprint should give better discounts for early adopters like at&T did for the apple 3gs.
