    Wow, really? Thanks for the heads up. I am starting to not rely on these T-Mobile reps...

    I was happy for a second too about the wifi calling..

    Never rely on the reps. We know more than they do most of the time.

    Do you use other language beside English? I wonder if there's a way to install a particular language pack other than English onto the 9900.
    I a sure that once it is released by more carriers, there will be plenty of language packs available. There is no reason to believe not, since it is being released around the world, and RIM has always released loacalized language packs.

    I went into a T-Mobile store today to play with it again.

    The rep said it will not have UMA.. but has wifi calling. So, if you are connected to wifi in the home and you were to leave the area, it will drop your call.

    Isn't that UMA?

    Anyways, he couldn't find the price and said he should tomorrow.
    That isn't UMA as we know it. That seems to be a UMA-lite or GAN-lite implementation. Full UMA would allow hand off. Either way, it will work for me, but it is my understanding that the phone will have neither UMA or Wifi calling at release. Many are saying that it will be enabled later via a software upgrade, but there has been no credible confirmation of this. Thus, my previous post.

    Have you put your zip code into the Wal-Mart T-Mobile 9900 pricing?
    This is what I got:
    New contract - $194.99
    2 Year renewal - $389.99
    Phone only - $649.99

    These just might be the prices.

    The prices on Rogers are starting to fall and those are a bit high so it's worth to get one from CA if you can and get it unlocked for T-Mobile use.

    I think a Rogers phone will NOT work on TM's high speed freq. You'd only get EDGE.

    Yeah, that wouldn't be worth it at all. Who wants to spend $500-600 on a 2G smartphone when you can spend (supposedly) $300-350 on a 4G one?

    Why waste time talking about prices? You'll know in a couple days what the starting price will be. The question to ask, is, "What will the price be in one month, or two months?"
    For some percentage of us users, the price in two months is more relevant since that's when UMA might be added. That's why discussion of UMA is important.
    TM is taking the position "If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it." That will work for some business customers. TM is trying to market this as a super premium product. Besides business's, there are certain people that just have to have the latest model on day one, no matter what the price. A number of those types are on these forums. They know the price will be $100-$200 less In October.

    The walmart website is now down to $244.99 for a 2 year upgrade.

    I just talked to a lady at T-Mobile and she said that she'd see no reason as why I wouldn't be eligible for the rebate.

    But I am now calling their rebate center to make sure I'd still get the $50 rebate cause if so, BAM! ordering it for overnight delivery.

    I just saw this as well, which is great news. I'm hoping that the price drop holds up on the 'T-Mobile Direct' side.

    Lady at the T-Mobile Customer Care transferred me to a rep at the rebate center. That lady looked it up and said "Yes you will be eligible for the rebate, but you will need to call back and obtain a promotional code from us as the Walmart website is different then in store".

    Now I'm gonna wait until tomorrow to see what the T-Mobile direct price is before I order it through Walmart.

    Good to know.

    I'm hoping the T-Mobile price is close, because I got them to let me upgrade 2 months early at the full-upgrade price and I don't if it will carry through on the 'non-direct' side.

    Just glad we'll know something tonight!
