Fast internet, stored info and card data along with luck !I just want to learn the technique used by whoever got those models to be able to complete the transaction so fast.
Maybe autocomplete on the credit card fields and also be logged in minutes before the sale.
I was at work so I didn't have the luxury to autocomplete. But I could have logged on ahead of time. I was so naive!
I will tell you that the WS1088 and WS1098 are the most popular and that they sold out in under a minute (CRAZY!!!) which is possibly why some of you said that the items were already sold out at noon. They were there, they just sold out before you loaded your page most likely.
One question is, can you guys upgrade the cart system to temporarily hold the item for about 5 minutes giving us a chance to complete the transaction?
Myself and others here had a WS1098 in the shopping cart by 12:00pm but when clicking continue from the credit card entry screen, received an inventory error. That item was gone ... "snatched from our cart" ...
Myself here doubt I will try buying in a sale like this in the future if it's going to be like that.
Thanks for replying
I am looking into it so I don't have the answer right now.
However, I assure you that when we do have another sale we will have looked into all of the issues.
I believe that the issues were caused by the limited quantities and we will make sure that our inventory threshold is higher the next time that we do a sale.

After holding the power button for about 2 seconds a Whistler screen should pop up with a "release power" right under it. Does the blank screen remain white?My 1098 arrived today, and I apparently do not know how to turn it on. I press the power button, I got a single blip of lighted panel then blank. If I hold the power button, it says either initializing SD card, or waiting for main unit. As soon as I let go of the power button, the display goes blank and nothing happens. I haven't read the manual, but am I doing it wrong?
And for Whistlers email, the link in the email led me to the page that had the 1098 pop up at 12:00PM CST.
