I guess you were right, I should have been patient. I got my BB from ebay today. The wife took it and loved it so much that she asked me to get her one. Then I dropped in my SIM to find that it wasn't unlocked as advertised. The wife was madder than hell and went totally off. I was so mad that I just fumed and took it. I emailed the seller since he advertised it as unlocked but havn't heard from him yet.
I then called TMobile to let them know I may have to switch to Cingular depending on what the seller says. The guy looked at my account and long story short, I have a new contract and an TMobile 7290 on the way for $214.99. Now I don't know how to break the news to my wife before it arrives.
I could send the Cingular one from ebay off to bongos to have it unlocked but I plan to go the distance with disputes to ebay and paypal. Worst case, I can put it back on ebay advising that it is locked to Cingular. What are your thoughts, the one from ebay was new and in an unopened box. Should I go the distance with the seller and deal with the wife about getting me a new one from TMobile or should I just get it unlocked and give it to the wife? Should I try and get her one for $214 the put this one back on ebay? Why didn't the good lord give me patience?
My life really sucks right now!
edit: My new TMobile account includes 3 months worth of free unlimited data. Everyone was really nice and felt bad about my situation and that they couldn't help. I feel like I want to rejoice but I am madder than hell!!!
