well if your contract is up then you might be able to get the BB for 199.00 including S&H from t-mo and I would recommend t-mo because I had both t-mo and cingu and it is very very painful just to talk to those not-so-nice people at cingu because they will have to start everything like "take your battery out" even though it is the battery which is dead -
I would highly recommend the t-mo and their customer serivice is superb.
The only best thing cingular has done so far is the direct line for bb users support
8700 is the thing to have,. makes different in browsing
