    Well, my wife lost bb 9700 yesterday. Someone took the phone and seemed to take out the sim card or turned off service.

    I am still 6 months away from full upgrade (24 months) So I talked to 3 regular reps and 2 people in the loyalty department, they couldn't help me at all getting a bb9900 as an upgrade.

    So today I decided to upgrade to a family plan (which adds a line with new full contract) with full discount. I tried and tried and tried to get a discounted 9900 and all they say is NO NO F NO. I get a corporate discount, free shipping/no activation fee, and sometimes slightly better prices on blackberries. So they forced me to get myTouch 4G, which is $0 today.

    Has T-mobile always been like that? They can't even do one tiny discount or anything.

    Depends on the plan. If you go with the value plan then you will get no discount at all. However, I would have just went with a small business phone line. Unlimited talk, text, and 5gig of data per month for $44.99 each and you can get a $100 discount on a BB9900.

    Isn't this forum for those who either HAVE or are GETTING a 9900? Come back in 6 months when you get your 9900 and stop making us waste clicks to hear your baby-azzed whining and bitc!ing about T-Mobile.

    I have been with them since the Omnipoint days around 1996 and they have never given me an extra discount on any handset. I once went 99% through discontinuing my service and they still wouldn't budge on price at all.

    You can always buy the 9900 from ebay/kijiji/craigslist/forums/etc....

    What I like about T-Mobile, and the reason I am considering the switch, is that if I am willing to pay full price for my phone, I can get my plan at a significant discount. At Verizon I am able to pay full price for my phone and get no benefit other than not being locked into a contract. However, Verizon has such better coverage

    you didn't have to comment on the thread if you didn't want to and you didn't have to read the thread if you didn't want to. so don't get mad at the OP who has a question about trying to get the phone

    What exactly was his question? Didn't seem like that was the question to me.

    Next - @kellyjdrummer - no one pissed in my wheaties LOL...I'm just so tired of the whinning and crying about stupidity - like what was written in the top post of this thread...

    There was nothing positive in his post; he isn't helping anyone; he doesn't own a 9900 and won't buy one till someone gives it to him for free...does that really have any place here? What does he contribute here exactly, besides his bellyaching stemming from how cheap he is? Seriously...
