    Was the phone 299 with a 100 mail in rebate? Or 199 straight-up?

    Visited Store in Newtown, PA today for hands on look. Too many security devices on the Torch to really take it for a spin but still planning on getting it tomorrow.

    While I was there the employees were unpacking MANY boxes of the Torch, none for sale today. They said they got a ton of them in and actually were talking amongst themselves that it was the highest qty they had seen ordered for a device at launch. Don't know if this was qty for their store/district/State etc.

    The one employee does not like BB and said he expects to get 8 of 10 returned due to problems with the device. I have never had problems, maybe I am lucky.

    That employee sounds stupid.... android/iphone lover. Called 2 stores near Norristown, PA and they said they would have plenty to sell tomorrow.

    He was an obvious hater of BB, the other employee agreed with me. He was an iphone guy- even got a dig in against Windows OS during our discussion.

    It is all a matter of need/want, I need/want what this device has. I don't need/want what iphone/Android have.

    I actually just called that store to see if they are carrying any, I'm probably going to buy mine from the Willow Grove location, they're a lot nicer. Typically Newtown anything, is snooty and stuck up.

    Several years ago, I got the 9000 a day early by going to the store 30 minutes before closing. An hour earlier, one of the store reps had already said (over the phone) that they didn't have any BOLD in stock until the next day. So, you may get lucky.

    I got my Sprint Bold 9650 a day early by going in the store during their last 30 minutes also.

    I've called and pestered and no one is budging Tomorrow at 9 it is. For me anyway.

    On another note, pricing after taxes at the Frederica Street AT&T store in Owensboro, KY is around $650 so that sounds like a $599 outright price tag.

    Edit: My husband just called me from our local Wal-Mart (Beaver Dam, KY). He said they have, I think, FIFTEEN Torches in stock for $500 outright and they go on sale at 8:30 AM (Central) tomorrow
    My local walmart sold me one, I'm on it now, had to buy it outright for $500, but I would of had to do that anyway so I just got it 12 hours early.

    Which IL store? I'm Chicagoland and havent been able to find a store to sell to me. I'm assuming you are new to AT&T? I'll have to upgrade early for $75
