    Because the demand is there, they will likely be pretty strict for a bit until the initial rush passes. That keeps the demand up and the buzz going.... So when it comes time to upgrade you'll be jonesin like a crackhead! (pun kinda intended!)

    Listen I am not for the upgrade either and I have one on hold....just keep talking to them, talk to a manager, talk to a higher up. I can see why, but they cannot deny you a phone that has a contract price on it. Keep bouncing around, you'll get it

    when they sell the phone without contract they are only making $50 profit on the phone...with a contract will be more profitable to them

    They want to use them to lure in new customers at first. Anytime you want to buy full price off contract get it in your hand before telling them. If you have another At&t store in you're town go there. Tell them you're considering a Bold. Have them bring you out a real device. Play with it a minute and tell them you'll take it and drop the cash on the counter. I don't see them wrestling you to the ground to get it back out of your hands. Although that would be some funny shiz right there.

    a lot of times people can get better deals online through vendors than you can in store. But sounds like you have done a good job, that is a heck of a price

    Tell them straight from Ralph De La Vega that he said you can walk into a store and buy a phone without getting in contract. If they refuse to sell escalate it.

    Same thing happened to me today. I called 2 stores and they all denied me. I ended up going to my local store and she sold me one no questions asked. I even told her I was unlocking it for tmo and she couldn't have cared less. Lol.
