Er...Is that $200 with a one year contract? I am working with the Wife Unit to convince her that it's OK for me to spend, like, $400 in a week or so to get the BB without a contract. I plan on buying it directly from T-Mobile...

So...I gotta' imagine that $200 will be with a contract - right?

edit: I had incorrectly written: "So...I gotta' imagine that $200 will be withOUT [emphasis added] a contract - right?"

I bet $199 is with a contract or contract extension. Probably $299 without contract

T-Mobile doesn't do 1 year contracts anymore unless you are getting a business plan.

Suggested retail is $399 for the 8700g and $299 for the 7105t. T-Mobile currently has a $100 off the 8700g and $200 off the 7105t. My best guess is that the 8100 will fall in the middle at $199 (after rebates) w/ 2yr contract.

T Mobile will still do a 1 year contract. They will try to encourage you to get the 2 year deal, but if you request it, they will give you a 1 year. The upgrade price for the phone usually increases by $50-100 if you go with the 1 year instead of the 2.

Yeah....I know this. But if RIM is really trying to target the end consumer, I was hoping that they'd be lowering the MSRP down to $300.

Keeping my fingers crossed....(Not that I wouldn't pay the $400....)

Mmmmm I donít mind extending my contract 2 yrs, but would I still be able to get an upgrade credit in a year if a new phone comes out?

$199 will be with a 2-year and 1-year will most likely be right around $249-$299. With no contract, you could expect near $349-$399. This is not a piece of crap phone. I don't know why some people are expecting it to be $199 with no contract. You know what's $199 with no contract from T-Mobile...a Samsung SGH-T209. If you know what that is, then you know the 8100 is far superior and there is no comparison and I should slap you...

Also, keep in mind, retail price for the old ass 7105t is still $429.99. Hopefully you all get the idea by now.

I wasn't trying to call you out brother, I just wanted to help clear things up for everyone since I do work for T-Mobile.

No worries.

But since you volunteered that you work for TM, are you guys allowed to sell the phones without a contract? I suspect so...I've been emailing my local rep and she's not mentioned that I must resign....

Does T-Mobile want us to? No. Just like they did with the SK3.

Will I do it to please my customers who want to have the best phone we offer? Yes I will. I'm not going to turn away T-Mobile customers who have been with us for years.

My sales rep has been good to me. She knows that:

1) I am the decision maker and person responsible for paying for our 5 phone family plan.

2) I've referred her to other people (and she's gotten sales from that)

3) A friend of mine has seen the light and is leaving Cingular in the fall - another guarenteed sale for her.

4) I had to follow up for 6 months to get a referral credit with her. Her manager's laptop was stolen, someone was not applying the credits, etc. So she and I have worked together before.

So I hope she'll sell it to me. Or else I'll wait for it to show up on Ebay.

What about corporate pricing? Bad news consumers, but we pay less.

I'm expecting 100 without a contract extension. Any other guesses?

WTF, I hate you. I couldn't get it that cheap unless I stole it. How many must be ordered for a corporation to get that kind of pricing?
