    If I try to upgrade, I’m offered the Instinct at $229. Does the additional $100 mail-in rebate follow for existing Sprint users?

    I’d like to see more WinMo phones like the HTC Touch Diamond or Touch Diamond Pro.

    Can we maybe see a review of this thing?

    A full review is in-the-works, and should be up some time next week.

    I dunno about WinMo phones RP. I’ve personally never had a WinMo phone but I’ve had some other WinMo products and the support as far as firmware/software updates and stability of the OS hasn’t been the greatest for me. I’m kinda partial to the proprietary OS’s. There are a few reviews out of this phone already. I got mine yesterday and so far, besides the browser needing improvement, I have no complaints.

    The most unbias review I’ve ever seen about the Instinct in relation to the iPhone. http://www.phonedog.com/cell-phone-videos/video-sprint-samsung-instinct-vs-lg-vu-vs-iphone-long-version.aspx
