Default Buying BB via Amazon then Changing Plan

Please Login to Remove!

Howdy All

Okay, I am going back and forth between getting my 8100 through Amazon (For $50) or through T-Mob (For $200).

TMob has this new thing called Fave5 which is a new plan that allows you to have 5 people that you get unlimited outgoing/incoming with.

Amazon does not offer this plan through their system.

I was wondering if anyone knew the possibilities/implications of getting my 8100 through Amazon and then trying to change the plan with TMob. Is it possible?

I bought my 8100 from Amazon, and I changed the plan a few days after I got it. Amazon didn't have the Minutes and Mail plan available. The customer service rep said that I could change the plan whenever I wanted. It just means that your contract obligation starts over again. I'm sure the same applies to MyFaves.

Saweet!

Thank you Marabuchi, that is what I figured, that I could change the plan but it would just restart the contract.

Completely worth the $150.00 difference in my opinion.

Definitely getting my pearl this week. Saweet.

Thanks for pointing out the wirefly deal. I do see now that it is free, but after mail in rebates. I hate mail in rebates.

Does anyone know of any websites that has the free (before or after rebate) offers for a Blackberry on a data only plan? I want to stick with my current cellular service and phone through Sprint, but use the Blackberry for just email, IMing and internet use.

I went on Amazon today to look at getting a Pearl (I bought one locally for $249 but have time to return and "rebuy" for FREE at Amazon) and they do have the same myFaves Family plan available that I had originally gotten at the store. It was a few pages in on the plans. You might want to take another look.

Amazon definitely has the MyFaves individual plans available too.
