Default Fastest way to get one from AT&T

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know the best way to get one on order from AT&T? I have heard people talk in the past about being able to get one through the business side sooner than the personal side. Our small business just recently moved to the business side of AT&T so I am excited to hopefully have first dibs on a 9000.

Can't wait.

Usually it's just a week or two before full launch.

You will need patience before VZW get it. I could not stand the wait.

My method for getting the device is to visit mt friends at the two local AT&T corp stores and give them my card with a note on it that I am looking for the 9000. They then call me when it actually is brought in the door from FedEx or UPS. This usually happens the day before the release or more likely the day of the release. I then go to the store and pick it up!

I have seen where you can purchase thru business channels 24-48 hours before the public release but by time they are shipped, they will be at your local stores.

In this same time frame you will start to see the 9000 in it's native AT&T box on eBay. This is the TRUE test as the very second they get to the dealers, you will have them show up on eBay!

That's correct. T-Mobile's 3G network will be on the 1700Mhz spectrum.
