Thanks to anyone who reply back and congrats on your new phone!
I have an 8100 on TMo and wanted the 8120. I called them and asked for the best upgrade price they could offer. Customer Care could only offer something like 249 because I had upgraded to the 8100 from an 8700 only 11 months ago. So, I complained and told them I was thinking about going to AT&T. I was immediately moved to another level of customer care, offered the phone for $99 with free shipping and a 2 year extension on my contract from the date of the order (not from what would have been the end of the 2 year extension I agreed to when I went from the 8700 to the 8100). For me, all in all a good deal since I think I can sell the 8100 for about $99, making the whole thing a wash. Not sure this would work on AT&T but, unless you ask, you'll never know.
