Crap. Maybe you were asking $899?

Still no 8310 here in Norcal land.

Anyway, I get bored today and just for fun, checked out Amazon. It is less than my AT&T store upgrade price ($25 or so after rebate). On the product page for the red, it says normally ships in 2 to 3 days, titanium says 1 to 4 WEEKS.

I'm thinking I can wait till next weekend, I want the red, I'll save some money, so why not? I actually go through the whole rigamarole of filling out all the online forms and all that and get to the VERY last screen where the "Purchase Now" button is.

I look over the screen, getting ready to commit, and see shipping estimated at some time in NOVEMBER! WTF???

I pull the plug, pick up the phone and call their cell customer service number. They're only open M-F, so I dropped them an email about the whole thing and asked them to call me.

It's very mis-leading having that "2 to 3 days" on the product page, and then bait and switch to the 3 to 4 week timeframe on the purchase page.

Anyone with similar experiences?
