    while you are there stop in on the top floor of the retail space and have a drink in the stone rose. i installed most of the wood panel work in there.

    The phone is so sweet.... whats the point of having that store, just to tease the customer? I was talking to one of the employees about how stupid it was that Samsung displays all these products that aren't available for purchase in the states. She also said lots of people have come into the store just asking about/looking at the 550. I wonder who those people were?!

    Uhh, I dont know if anyone else has been there recently, but they pulled the i550 from display. I asked a representative and he said that they just got rid of it recently. Kinda sad, it was the main reason for visiting the store.

    when were you there? I was there 11 days ago, they must've just pulled it last week.

    Makes sense that they got rid of it, since the phone will never see the light of day.

    I was there Saturday the 9th. In fact, I was there a few hours before I posted that. I was practically running around the place in a frenzy, knowing it had to be there somewhere. So I asked and the guy said that while they had a lot of people ask about it they got rid of it for some reason, and he pretty much made it clear it was canceled by Sprint a month before its release and that it would never come out.

    yeah, and Im upset I never got to see it!! I also went there on the slim chance that they might have an i730 on display...i know its not palm but it may drag me away from my i500. I figured since they had the i550 out before it was released they might do that with other phones, but no luck. Bad day at the Samsung store, I was 0 for 2.

    Okay, this makes me feel better -- knowing the Samsung store is no longer shower it and telling people it will come out on Sprint sounds more solid than "palm info center says..." or "cellguy01fansite says..."

    Oh no... I was going to be able to visit the NYC store for the first time next week! Now there's no longer any reason!

    Is there a phone number for the store? We could all call and ask if the i550 was on display...

    There was no indication from the guy I spoke to that it might make a return, he seemed pretty down that they finally got rid of it. He said that I missed it by a few days. But maybe since they released the i539 in China they will have that on display, eventually.
