Both new customers and existing customers can take advantage and the offer is quite simple with no surprising strings attached.

      Are they doing this to get rid of the current HTC phones since the HD2 comes out on the 17th of March?

      • pecoy

        March 17th for the HD2? Where u did u hear this? Hopefully we get it by march or hopefully sooner

    • sortamad

      im so confused, so how do we know how much specifically we get back before we buy the phone?

    • Viper

      This may be the first time the general public may actually see the Touch Pro 2 and become aware of its existence. It’s the only “advertising” campaign the phone has ever been in.

    • http://twitter.com/phenomenon_7 Phenomenon

      Ok, but my question is; Will the “HD2″ be apart of this??

      • Kickstar13

        Nope. Only the Shadow, Touch Pro2, and Dash 3G qualify for these rewards/discounts.

    • abel2fresh4u

      WHO SED THE HTC HD 2 IS COMING ON MARCH 17?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? I BEEN LOOKING FOR A RELEASE DATE SINCE I HEARD BOUT THE FONE MONTHS AGO. I CANT WAY

    • just some dʋde

      Notice this is for WM phones only, WM is not doing so well for HTC. This is an attempt by HTC to generate some buzz for WM. HTC is in a restructuring phase right now, they are about to decide where to put most of there future capital in WM or Android. No big surprise here it will be Android.

      • John

        We don’t need troll and tools comments here.

      • J5

        WM7 is M$’s only hope in getting market share back. Trust me, it has to be something revolutionary to compete with Android and iPhone. Microsoft settled for mediocrity for too long in the mobile business and now they are paying for it.

    • kershon

      Great news! I gave up on blackberries and just ordered a TP2. It’ll be here Tuesday.

      • Kickstar13

        @kershon
        You didn’t want to wait for the HTC HD2?

        • kershon

          Kickstar13 I got tired of the dropped calls and fluctuating signal on the bb. I called cs 3 times and talked to bb tech. They all told me to give 72 hours to check the towers and then if towers ok then they were gonna replace the phone. I had three 8900 curves in the 6 month prior to getting the 9700. The last one was doing ok when I got the bold 2. Now they tell me I might have a problem with this one. Too much for me. So TP2 here I come. And when the HD2 gets released I might get it too. But I think I’m through with being an early adopter. Not real early anyway. Might give it a couple days to see if problems pop up. It’s been a long time since I ran winmo. This will get me practiced up for the big boy when it drops. lol

    • Oce

      I also say they’re trying to dump these before the HD2 hits. Going to be a big year for magenta.

    • Sgt. Cell

      Still wish the HD2 would come out sooner.

      • pecoy

        Me too

    • Ahh Yo!

      To tell you the truth, those offers are weak. Not one of those are worth signing-up for two year contract with Data package or renew. I’m going to wait until HD2 comes out in March. They can keep their rewards/discounts.

    • reddragon72

      Nice to be recognized on this site?!?!?! I was the one that reported this info to the site. anyways!

      They also failed to mention that the Shadow is no longer listed in the phone list, and this page is the only one that it is listed on anywhere on T-mobiles site. The TPS and Dash are the only HTC phones listed anymore. Also the TP2 was listed at 350 and is now listed at 270. All this and the announcement of the HD2 means a last second push for people to get these other phones, will they kill off the TP2 and Dash, no, but they are trying to push there sales.

      As for the march 15th date, not happening. The actual release time frame is Spring, and we all know that Spring starts officially on 21 March. And with this offer ending on March 23rd, which is a Tuesday and most phones are released on a Tuesday, makes this a perfect date for the HD2. Of Course this is all speculation, but I think the dates are too coincidental for them to be ignored.

      • David

        Red-dragon, a number of people emailed this in and I believe I emailed each of them back. For the most part, sources here don’t want to be identified so we just assume anonymity is part of the deal unless specified otherwise. If you weren’t given due credit, my apologies!!

        • reddragon72

          sorry about that. I normally never wish to be recognized for info and give a bad email cause some info I provide is NDA, but then I am not under one for T-mobile just other stuff. I reported this twice once on the 20th when it was on T-mobiles site and then again just the other day. Sorry, big time! just got frustrated.

    • Callaway Bomber

      Hmm…The TP2 was out of stock as of Saturday and it’s listing was pulled from the sight, unless you type TP2 in T-Mobile’s search box..

      • kershon

        I noticed that too. So I went through the upgrade page and it was available for upgrade. I then called customer care and asked if the device was out of stock as it was showing before it was pulled or is it not going to be available. The rep told me that the TP2 was availble for upgrade. She said they always reserve some for upgrades and I could order one. I did and it will be here Tuesday.

    • Jeff B.

      I have the G1 right now. I thought about the Nexus One, but just can’t seem to pull the trigger. I have been following all the blogs on the internet concerning the HD2. I have never used WM before. But the HD2 is gorgeous. Do you think if I get the HD2, I will miss Android? Although, I guess I could keep my G1 and use both.

      • David

        I am sure you will not miss Android. Everything you can do on your G1 you are able to do on any Windows Mobile (for many years). Plus you will be able to do many more things and have many more features on your HTC HD2 that you are not able to do with Android phones.

        Plus there are thousands apps available out there for Windows Mobile and many are free. Also you can get many apps for free or buy from Microsoft MarketPlace or simply get thousands free apps from here:

          question I use gmail as my #1 email can this WM sinkup to google gmail as a android OS can thanxs

      • J

        I’ve not been impressed with WM so far. My first experience was with the Wing and I think that experience has scarred me for life. I debated getting the TouchPro until people I work with told me how much they disliked it. The HD2 is worth a shot. I will likely give it a try. If it still has lots of memory leaks and freezes up, that will be my last WM device. I’ll likely get the top end Android device when another is released, and toss the lesser device into a drawer.

        • John

          I had Wing too. Back then Wing was a good phone in early 2007 compare to the other phones. But I agree with you about speed. But that was actually HTC fault by using a very slow processor for Wing not Windows Mobile fault.

          Plus it’s not fair to compare a phone that came almost 3 years ago with the phones recently released. Of course new phones has better and faster hardware which was not available back then. Therefore you can’t really compare and blame OS on Wing for it.

          So far I am very happy with Touch Pro2 and Windows Mobile 6.5 performance, speed, features and all these applications that available for it. But I am sure HTC HD2 will be even much better phone.

      • tortionist

        if I were you, i’d wait until the Bravo comes out. The Bravo is one slick phone. That is, if it comes to Tmobile and not Verizon.

    • james

      Why not just a rebate for cash? or just hand them out for free… even then they will have a hard time getting rid of them. and if they did give them out, i bet they would be on ebay in no time at all funding Nexus One purchases. noboby wants a windows phone… look at what they did to our computers, who wants that to happen to their phone? and no i do not run Windoze on my computers at home… Linux. I do like the fact that Windows does hold market share because it provides me a job as an IT guy.

      • john

        Currently there is a htc trade in promo til March 23 as well. Go to http://www.recyclerebates.com promo code is UptoHTC. You’ll get a $50 check back too.

        • kershon

          I traded in my curve 8900 when I got the 9700 on Nov. 16th. I am still waiting in my check. Emailed the trade-up program 2 weeks agao and they said I was scheduled for mailing the end of January this year. I hope HTC doesn’t take that long. I think it is better to sell your old phone on ebay than use the trade-up program. More money and get your cash quick.

    • B.D.

      These offers don’t impress me at all. If you don’t travel, then the hotel and airline discounts don’t give you anything. And without actually checking the accessories & prices on HTC.com, my presumption would be that you can get the accessories cheaper elsewhere, so the discount might just make those prices comparable and not better.

      If T-Mo and HTC want to motivate me, then lower the price on the TP2. (Or, better yet, get rid of the data plan requirement: I don’t want the phone for Internet-everywhere, I want it to replace my two separate devices, phone and PDA.)

      Just my $0.02.
