Somthing similar happened for me -- last December, my sister and I
both upgraded our phones to new ones, and were told at the Sprint
store (125 Boston Post Rd, Orange, CT) that both of our phones
qualified for the rebates -- IIRC $150 off my Sanyo 8100 and $100 off
my sister's Samsung something-or-other (maybe a VI660) -- even though
the advertising said it was for new lines only. We did carefully read
the fine print on the rebate form, though, and it mentioned nothing
about any new line/service restriction. Sent the rebates back, and
sure enough, they were rejected by the rebate service center. Called
customer service to compain, told them that the store salespeople told
us that we were qualified for the rebates (and that the fine print
said nothing about new lines only), and we actually did end up getting
