RIM customer service was great!
Thanks to all for their suggestions.
Yeah, if you dig up the warranty information, accessories that originally come with the device are covered under the warranty. So it doesn't matter if they carry it or not for regular retail sales. However, they can substitute.
Tmobile's warranty is extremely poorly written, but I would think AT&T's is a bit clearer.
