Default "Only a few left in stock???"

Please Login to Remove!

I just read a post that says a rep from the consumer order center told them at approx. 3:10pm, that only a few were left in stock???? c'mon give me a break! Considering that i have talked to 50 reps during past 3 days, and only a few appeared to have any knowledge of what was going on....even today, i was never able to confirm with any rep, at any number that there was ever any stock, period! yes, i started my assault at just after 8a.m. Is their a conspiracy going on here? I don't get it!

I think thats a little misleading... Cingular does not release much information to the front line soldiers including managers, supervisors or District Managers. The area management knows but is too busy worrying about looking good to the executive branch(see Stan Sigman and his legion of Presidents and VPs) and screaming about pushing features and how they can make their area appear to be the best to that legon to take the time to disperse verified information down the line to those that could give it to me and then me to you etc... The only people who really know or I should say care to know the truth are in Marketing and Product Development and Supply. I myself have to go to other websites such as this to learn more about what we are doing and when we are doing it. The company slowly trickles information down to the sales rep. Most reps are not as interested in Blackberries or other PDA devices as such they dont bother to do much research about them let alone dig deeper on availability than they would for a Nokia 6010. Myself however I rely on about 50% of my monthly sales comp for blackberries.
