Question Buying a Blackberry Through

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone bought their Blackberry through

The deals look to good to be true by signing up for two years with cingular and receiving a Free 8700c.

I understand the parts with breaking the contract and all, but you are still getting a free BB instead of paying the 299 or 399 for it.

Did I miss something on the fine print? Thanks

Most of these deals require a NEW contract - not a transfer of an existing contract even with the same carrier, and I'm pretty sure it also means you won't be able to transfer your existing number.

I would post more info, but terms vary for each carrier. Click the links under "After Rebates, This Item is FREE!" and read EVERYTHING!
