Default Offered a bribe for an 8100

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

Went into a T-Mobile here in Wilmington, DE and talked to a sales person who told me that they have had the phones in for a "while." They will be putting them out at 10am on Tuesday the 12th, and he would get fired if he sold me one now......even for an extra $200.

Then I went a mile down the road to a new T-Mobile authorized dealer who had never even heard of the 8100. There had happened to be a sales rep in there and she told me the phone would not be out until early October.......can you say clueless!!!!

Sounds like a Cingular roll out.

Indirect stores sometimes get exclusive items like this later.

Reason being is T-Mobile doesnt want them unlocked and sold with cingular contracts for a while ;)
