Is this for real? Two 8900s for $179.99 and two year contract? That seems outlandish to me.

I just called and asked about upgrading and was given the $199.99 with 2 year contract treatment. Anybody getting anything better?

Hello friend, this is an old thread, and a scam thread at that.

I got the $179.99 price through customer loyalty. I had to play the same game the OP did. I never had before, last time I upgraded, I just called and asked about a phone and all I was said was "man, that's a little expensive" and the woman transfered me saying maybe this department can give you a better deal.

Anyway, I am tired of people using the "I've paid this much money to them for 8 years."

Please, you act like you gave them $10,000 and just handed it to them. Are you forgetting you are using their "service." It cost them to run a network, open stores, pay their employees, pay people they contract and etc etc.

I don't mind paying htem $100 for something I use, and quite honestly, its more useful than most of the bills I have. So paying them to use their service is a gimme, your using their service (duh).

However, loyalty should always pay off. It's nice how they always remind me of how long ive been with them and how they appreciate me. But I shouldn't have to tell them i'm getting the storm for them to throw me a good deal. God please that rep a few years back that transfered me to retentions without me even asking or knowing.

That's what I call good customer care and appreciating a customers loyalty. She did whatever she can to make me happy. And all I did was "inquire" about an upgrade and pricing on a phone that just came out and state my displeasure with the price (I didn't even plan on buying quite honestly). It was more of a "hey how much is this phone?"

Is that net of the rebate? Or is that eligible for the rebate as well, so total would be $79.99?

They charged me $179.99. They told me no mail in rebate and they were giving it to me instantly.

However, maybe I should mail it in? LOL.

Hey, why not not? I looked at the $100 coupon on Amazon - specifically says for new activations, but try it anyway meng.

Thanks for the price info - they quoted me $199 today for two year (you had to do that too, right?). Nice to know I can drop it $to $179. I heard on other thread that a guy was able to get it for $149.99 and only 1 year commitment??
