How long ago did you order, MadDog?
I ordered mine Monday morning.
I've bought a zillion things from Amazon before but this was the first time it was for something other than a book or somthing simple like that, so I've never really needed to find out exactly what was going on.
Getting someone in their customer service department who knows anything is a challenge. I'm pretty sure they're outsourcing most of their routine calls to India, but I think their cell phone customer service is here in the U.S.
To be honest, I didn't really read all the fine print, just most of it. My primary thing is that I knew I was signing up for another 2 year term and that's OK. I really didn't pay that close attention to cancellation and early termination.
The other thing is that to get the AT&T final rebate ($75), you have to sign up for the $29.99 unlimited data plan, which, if you're going to have a Blackberry, would seem a given (wouldn't it?).
Damn it. It's going to seem like forever until it gets here, but for the price, it will be well worth the wait. Looking back now, all the dopes who camped out a week for their iPhones have to be thinking, "what was I thinking?", so I think it will be worth waiting a week to get a $24.99 8310 (damn, that is a good deal) instead of a $224 8310.
