Default Upgrading phone online from ATT shipping Q?

Please Login to Remove!

When you upgrade your phone online thru your premier account, do you get free next day shipping so I get the phone the 13th of Aug then?

I am worried in store they will be sold out because I work that day and when I get to store by 7 pm It will be all sold out, probably all sold out at 10am I am guessing within an hour of opening.

Maybe online is my best bet at 12:01 on Aug 12th?

Normally I get free next day shipping from ATT, but only if the phone is in stock. Who knows what the deal is going to be with the Torch. You might be better off talking to a human at 12:01.

I have a Premier acct too and I (as well as all Premier accts) have a local sales rep...I called mine and asked him to set me up for one on the 12th and he is taking care of everything (he also came through for me on iPhone 4 release day).
Good luck!

I will wait for 4--8 weeks before deciding if I need a 9800. This board helped me decide to get my 9000 and avoid the 8700. I'm hoping that the poor reviews the 9800 received are not confirmed by the BBForums collective opinion.

If they are, I have a problem. Do I wait for the 9900 or get an android?

That's the suckers price. If you agree to a 2 year contract extension or are eligible for an upgrade you can one for $299. I'm planning to wait until Labor Day to see what 'real' people think.

I'm more concern with the average user, since half the problems I've heard with other Blackberry's and I-Phones involve functions I never use. (except for the dropped call part).

Can anyone breakdown the details on early upgrades with ATT? :/
I'm probably 6-7 months shy of the 2 years.. will i have to throw 299$?!
