Insurance on what? Your shipment? That'll be UPS/USPS/whomever you picked to ship. Insurance on the device, should you purchase the insurance plan, will be from TMO.

the amazon rebate is only eligible after 180 days of service, then takes 10-15 weeks......in the fine print.

Some one else did that at my store this week. Returned two Razrs because it was free after 6 mos. I said, "good luck trying to get the rebate then".

I hear enough about people having rebate issues after 6-8 weeks. I can't imagine waiting 35 + weeks for a rebate! "Yea...I bought a phone almost a year ago and I never got my rebate."

Amazon rebates are actually very easy now.

Read this -> http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/feature/-/600454

Amazon Rebate Service
At Amazon.com, our focus is always on the customer, and that's why we're committed to helping you get your rebate. Our rebate procedures and forms are easy to understand and complete--no gimmicks, no tricks. We do all the leg-work with the carriers for you so you don't have to remember to send in forms six months after you purchase. Here are the top three things customers love about Amazon rebates:

- When you receive your product, you can submit and track your Amazon rebates online at www.rebateshq.com/amazon-rebates
- You typically receive your Amazon rebate check within 12-15 weeks of purchase
- No stamps, envelopes, copies, UPCs or sending us your personal cell phone bills!

I buy telco for my company and Amazon is my primary source for handsets. Zero problems and 100% of my rebates have come back.

You can talk them up all you want. Your not the one who has to deal with the customer complaints about the rebates or the F***ED up accounts. People think that it's our faults that there accounts were screwed just because their using our service. I say, "you should check with Amazon. They set up your account didnt you?"

It has to do with the deal because the deal involves the rebates, one of the BIGGEST complaints I get at my store from customers who have bought from sites such as Amazon, Wirefly, ect.

You may be committed to getting the customer their deal and I commend you on that, but until the day arrives that customers stop complaining about their rebates never showing up and their accounts not being totally jacked, I will continue to warn customers about purchasing through companies such as Amazon or Wirefly.

I dont think you understand the frustration that can be built up by having to deal with a customer that is pissed because they got their phones and they cant use them because the wrong features were added or the features they did need were not added or the billling and area codes were wrong along with the last four social on an account. I am not directly attacking you or Amazon. Please do not think that I am.

I instead am directly attacking all internet sellers. Customers generally have no idea what they need and when you put the decisions in the customers hands or in the hands of someone who isnt proactively asking the customer what they need, your gonna run in to problems more often than not.

I could go on, but I will rest my fingers for a minute

Corey, what would happen if I get this deal then cancel the account before the contract locks? Would I have a $200 8700 as long as I don't send in the rebates?
