    Arrow 8900 Promotion

    Has anyone been able to get an 8900 for around 199 without a rebate?

    I promise not to be upset, unless there are still people waiting for their phones because they are backordered.
    I understand that by getting my 8900 on release day I would be paying top dollar, and I could have waited(ya right) and gotten it cheaper.
    I would be surprised that tmobile thought this would be necessary since they have had so much trouble keeping up with demand already. It is a good money making idea though if they require a BB plan cuz then they get the money back in 4 months.

    Then I guess it would upset you to hear I got mine for free.

    Lol, I work for a big company with corp discounts so no I actually won't be mad. But I am surprised to see them slash prices so soon.

    well amazon and wirefly has already been selling them for $50 after rebates, for new customers only with 2 yr contract. No upgrades, which is why I had no choice but to go with Tmobile's $200 after rebates.

    Well typically, you pay a little bit more when a phone first comes out (with a few exceptions) and the price on phones drop, the longer they've been out. I guess that's the price you pay for being impatient Most of us who got our phone during the corporate ordering period paid a little bit more, but I'm ok with that because I had it weeks before the "general public".

    I wonder if this is what "mywitheredeye" was talking about: Amazon.com: BlackBerry Curve 8900 Phone, Titanium (T-Mobile): Cell Phones & Service

    After buying cell phones for 17 years, PC's for 25 years, I've learned a long time ago that it's not worth 1) waiting for the "best price" (it's a moving target - always), and 2) not worth getting upset when the price inevitably falls after your purchase. That's simply retail electronics economics. You have to decide when the price point works for you, jump in, and don't look back.

    Mine was relatively painless:

    $200 after rebate from T-Mobile. Another customer in the retail (corp) store actually bought my 8300 off me for $100 cash as I bought the 8900, and while in the store, we got Customer Care on the phone and had the devices and PINs switched to the proper T-Mobile accounts -- quick and painless. So I was now down to about $100 spent on the 8900.

    Then I still have the rebate from RIM and T-Mobile to cash in, so I can send in an old 8700 and get at least $50 back on this recycling program. This brings the out of pocket phone cost down to $50 for me. Worked out well for me!

    Trust me, I don't care if I paid $200 (on new contract) for mine or if there's a promo for it being free. It was WELL WORTH the $200.

    I'm not sure if I got a good deal or not. Instead of ordering from service I just went to a T-mobile store and got it for $299 w/ a $100 rebate.

    Honestly I does not matter to me. I got my 8900 during the "pre-release" and I paid the 200 dollars. I am happy I got it when I did and what others are doing really does not matter to me. It was hard enough to wait as long as I did to get it. Not having to wait until April.....priceless.
