If you have had the 7230 active for 12 months, the upgrade plan at T-Mobile should provide you with the $299 price with the $100 mail-in rebate. Otherwise, you have to get a new service -- if you are close to the 12 month mark, go for the new service, and cut back the plan on your 7230 to the lowest possible rate, then cancel at the 12 month mark. HOWEVER -- you will most likely lose your current cell phone number. It MIGHT be possible to switch it over when you are cancelling the 7230 at the end of 12 months, but they will not guarantee that. This has been my experience.
