My first posting!
Here's my pricing experience today:
Called T-Mobile, told them my 7100t is having problems (it is) and I wanted to upgrade to an 8700g. My contract runs through mid December 2006. Offered $399-$50 for 2 years, no one year option.
Told the rep I could cancel my T-Mobile service, pay the $200 termination fee, and get an 8700c from Cingular free.
They offered $349 - $50 for two years, $399 - $50 for one year.
Told them my wife will be looking for a new phone this summer, and really wished they could do more for me.
Transferred to a Retention Specialist.
Offered $249.99 with a two year contract. Told him the same cancel, pay $200, get Cingular story as I told the first rep. He then offered me $199.99 (plus tax) and free shipping.
My new 8700g should be here in a few days!
Important note: I had 8 months remaining on my contract, my new 2 year contract starts today so I actually only extended by 16 months!
