Default Torch at Amazon Wireless for $99

Please Login to Remove!

I just ordered my Torch from Amazon Wireless for $99. I had looked at Wirefly and LetsTalk, but both insisted on a minimum $59 (900 minute) voice plan that you have to keep for 181 days. No such problem with Amazon where I ordered it with the $39 voice and $15 data plan.

I'm an ATT Premier customer and hope that I will be able to apply the Premier discount once I get the phone. Amazon does have an 181 day condition, but it appears to be only regarding termination. Even if i can't get the discount for 6 months, it is still a lot cheaper than the ATT store and I don't have to pay sales tax.

Fedex shipping is free, but it is "2-day" which is actually more like 4-5 days. I was not able to upgrade to overnight shipping. They don't give any option for changing the type of shipping.

There is an $18 upgrade fee, but I would have had to pay that at the ATT store too. I'm upgrading from the original iphone which has been out of contract for several months. I played with the Torch at the store yesterday and really like the combo of iphone and bb type features.
