Nope iphone arena is how you say "dumb". This is an incentive program for employees and dealers.

Sprint Rewards Me is an employee incentive program with different incentives, ie extra spiffs and contests, for target selling different devices. It is NOT a consumer rewards program. want proof? here is the website...http://www.sprintrewardsme.com/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fDefault.aspx without a vendor id you can't even get to the login screen. read the page you posted again, and keep in mind that it is an internal document, meant to be read by employees only. as for the HTC holiday, don't count on a date til you see the box in an ATT store. we have had devices in our playbook in the past that never ended up arriving.

Crap. Phone Arena had me excited. Every 6 months was way to good to be true, anyways. Can always buy new outright, I guess.

The comparison picture apparently lists the Droid Bionic as having a 4.5" screen instead of a 4.3" screen, as I've heard. Is this a mistake on Sprint's part or mine? Also, if I may be so bold, that's a misleading comparison chart: it compares the SGS2 to the other carriers' older premier phones, even though they'll be getting the same SGS2 around the same time (with the exception of Verizon, of course, but they'll be getting the Droid Prime anyways, according to an unverified source.)

yeah, i see the 4.5", 1.2GHz dual-core processor on the Bionic too. i'm not sure what Sprint thinks they know over there but it would be good news for me if it were true.

that still doesn't mean that that Sprint Rewards Me program wont be going to customers. Truthfully you could just be the guinea pigs for a later release to the customers for this program. specially with them upping the Premier program to two levels. N since you know so much why dnt you explain the BIG annoucement on October 7th!

Sprint rewards has been going on since I started working for Sprint in 2008, we are not quinea pigs. This is a sales rep advantage to selling Sprint.

The announcement is going to be 1. about LTE and 2. about the iphone. maybe some other thing in there.

My suggestion. Don't open your mouth before using your brain.

burnab87, Sprint Rewards has been around for at least 5+ years...no testing here, it's for employees.
