Default $199 Upgrade AR at Tmo for 8900

Please Login to Remove!

I called Tmo to find out what it would cost to upgrade if ooc. It's $299 less a $100 rebate (I think in form of Visa Cash card). So it will come to $299 plus tax, less $100. I tried calling the business line to see if there was a better deal but got nowhere.

Anyone have anything better on an 8900?

Anyone received their $100 rebate yet? If so, how long did it take?

I spoke to retention and did 2 yr for $179 which came to $199 with cali taxes. No rebate. Better than paying tax on 299.

I got mine for 179, 2 year contract. I was only 5 months into my last upgrade

Tell them you want to switch to AT&T if they don't give you a better deal. They will then transfer you to their "saves" department. They can and will give you the best possible deal.

Is that $179 net of rebate or not?

I just got my 8900 this past Saturday (3/28) at Sam's Club . . . $103.03 out the door with a 2 yr contract extension. There was no mail in rebate to deal with.


I'll also send in my Pearl for $75 back
