Default Price drop any time soon?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone think the price will drop even more with AT&T BB 8310 when the iPhone comes out in July 11 or BB 9000 sometime in August?

I am debating on whether to wait just a little longer or to just get it now.

Thanks!

Oh very nice! I currently have a discount with AT&T thru my insurance, so I will need to look over the price differences. Thanks, I'm going to check it out.

Oh wow, their Curve has WiFi!!! However, it's not free? It's still $150 after rebates.

You guys over the water have it harsh, it's unusual to pay for a handset on contract here!

If you're looking on T-Mobs' site, that's the 2-year agreement price for a new line.

This is very true. My 8320 cost me nothing on a contract with Orange. I must admit that this makes a change as USA prices are normally half that charged in the UK.

Probably not. You might find better deals through resellers though.

Resellers such as? I'm looking to get a 8310 but I'm not eligible for renewal until October, unless I pay an extra $75.

Thanks!
The improvements coming with 3G service might be worth looking at. Faster internet speeds, plus your device will be able to conduct its mail services while you're on the phone (which the current Curves cannot do...mail only works when the phone is not in use). Plus, T-Mobile is not going to have 3G service in the near-term. Just some things to consider.

Those prices are for new or renewed contracts . What are the prices for those that don't have an option to renew ??
