Sprint Touch Pro 2: Now $199 (w/ agreement and rebate)

Well, the always expensive Sprint Touch Pro 2 (originally $350 w/contract; see full review) has been reduced to a somewhat more fair $199 ($150 instant discount, $100 MIR).

Makes sense. The phone is running WM6.5  (albeit a very good build with Sense 2.5) and is hitting its 6 month stride.

Still, with the T-Mobile HD2 running for $99 (see here and here) with comparable pricing plans, that $199 still seems a bit steep. But hey, if you've been holding out for the TP2 and don't mind having a non-Windows Phone 7 device in six months (we hear there are a few of you), then go for it! [Phone News]

  • How is this news? I paid $199 after instant rebates from Sprint for my TP2 last year. Same deal from VZW at the time. Either way, mine has gotten fairly buggy with the screen not waking up about 3 times a week recently running the official 6.5 update. I will take a hard look at the EVO in a few weeks...even though I prefer my great TP2 keyboard.
  • There's a difference between what *you* were able to get it for and what the official advertised price is i.e. it has changed this week. Sure, lots of people got it for less than the advertised price and lots did not (I got it for
  • I suppose if we "think bigger" that means HD2, no? Haha... Seriously though, I know you like the TP2 a lot as well, but are you considering moving to something else? HD2? EVO? Incredible? iPhone 4? (gasp!) A future Palm device (if they can survive)? Or would you keep this until WP7 drops? I'm not that cracked up about WP7 for a heavy business user, not that any of the above are business standouts.
  • You can also get the AT&T Tilt 2 (TP2) for $49.99 from wireless.amazon.com on a 2-yr.
  • No dedicated number row is such fail. :-P
  • wow better late then never I always say
  • Via the Walmart web site, you can get the AT&T touch pro 2 for free with new service.
  • Through my contacts i got mine for 25 bucks (: two months ago
  • A lot of SERO users (myself included )have been waiting for this price drop to upgrade our plans to. This may be the last (best) phone eligible for SERO.
  • Not really fair to compare the provider's price to non-provider prices, is it? Non-providers, especially online, are almost always cheaper. All you had to go was compare the $199 Sprint TP2 with the $199, BOGO Free HD2 and you would have made your point.
  • "and don't mind having a non-Windows Phone 7 device in six months (we hear there are a few of you)" That's sarcasm, right? There's quite a bit more than just a "few" of us. I'm not sure what the general consensus is at XDA-developers, but the forums over at ppcgeeks (as well as the opinions in their podcast, of which I've been a guest) seem to sway strongly against mass-adoption of Zune Phone 1.0.
  • Sounds convenient because this phone runs on WM6.5 and I think probably this will not attract more users when there is iPhone and HD2.
  • Cool, looking very nice .Thanks for share this post with us.I wish to buy this one soon and use the features of this.This is very very nice post explaining to Sprint Touch Pro 2.Thanks a lot to you for share .I have a link and i want share with you ,this is also related with new technology PCBA.
  • This is pretty much the end of the line device for SERO. I'd like the bigger and slightly higher res screen, but it's just too bulky (and no faster) compared to my old Diamond. I'm going to ride SERO for as long as I can, but at some point I'm going to have to go back to normal plans. *sigh*
  • I have a SERO-equivalent grandfathered plan (fair and flexible actually), and was really happy to see this price (my treo 755P is getting slow!). HOWEVER, when I went through the motions of upgrading my phone online, the language of the conditions attached to the $100 mail-in rebate looked suspiciously like the "qualifying service plan" "everything-" this and that and a minimum base price of 39.99. Seems like they're finding one more way to screw us... Has anyone with a SERO plan under $39/month base received this rebate without talking to retention?
  • yes everyone has gotten it no problems
  • All you had to go was compare the $199 Sprint TP2 with the $199, BOGO Free HD2 and you would have made your point.About WP7 for a heavy business user, not that any of the above are business standouts.
