Default How To Redeem Gift Certificate? [Solved]

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings all.

I'm wondering if anyone has ever redeemed a gift certificate directly to RIM for a BlackBerry. I work in law enforcement and one of our vendors held a user conference last week, at which they had a drawing for a BlackBerry of choice on a carrier of choice. Luckily enough, I was the winner! I was never interested in them but we now have mobile software which works on SmartPhones and I'm drooling over the things that can be done with the BlackBerry. I debated over the 8820 or the 8310 and I think I've decided on the 8310.

I've emailed RIM twice in the past week to redeem the gift certificate and haven't received a reply. I'm just curious (read: impatient) and am wondering if this is normal. I figured with the popularity of the device they would have a faster response time to email. I didn't have much luck finding a contact number to call but I may just call one of the numbers I found and maybe whomever I speak to can point me in the right direction.

Thanks for any help you can give and I hope to soon be a contributing member of your great community.

Regards,
Kubaton

Edit: I was able to make contact with someone.

if it's good for any BB on any network why not take the certificate to your choice of carrier stores?

Seems like they would just honor it.

I wish I could have but on the certificate it says it must be redeemed through RIM. Luckily, they responded to me and sent the order form today. I promptly completed it and sent it back to them. I chose the AT&T 8310. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

To be honest, I never had any interest in BBs. I was really surprised I won too but, luckily, there was only about 12 or so of us at the conference so I had pretty good odds. I've been reading quite a bit and I'm almost addicted before I have it in hand. Now, if I can just get the department to put me on their account and save myself $50/month...
