Default How much is a replacement Pearl? (no contract)

Please Login to Remove!

I want to get Safeware insurance but I am not clear on how much it really costs to buy a new Pearl out of contract.

T-Mobile's site says "Suggested Retail: $349.99". Is that what one pays for a new phone or is that just a suggestion?

Thanks!

Nice job Matt! How is the device working now? Any intermittent issues, etc?
