No, I got in on the Verizon deal where it was $249 with $150 rebate.
Effective cost $99. I'd feel bad about not getting as good a deal as
you except I'm glad to be rid of sprint. I had Sprint before and
Verizon is SUCH a better service. Better coverage areas, and their
signals penetrate buildings better. My buddy's basement allowed me
ZERO signal when I used Sprint, but I routinely get 3 or 4 bars of
signal on the Kyocera with Verizon. Much happier.

Consolidated two for me. I really like it. I use the palm more now
than I did before I consolidated.

Yeah, I probably won't end up getting the 7135 any time real soon, but
it is drool-worthy for me.
