    Called my local business sales rep yesterday and he offered me the Bold for 249.99 outright. Said I might be able to take advantage of the 50 MIR but he wasn't guaranteeing it. Even waived the activation and overnight shipping costs. It's in the FedEx system and will be here tomorrow.
    If you're not having luck, call your store and tell them you want to talk to the local business sales rep. I called stores all over before finally being told they would have someone call me back from the business sales.
    Calling in to the business sales 800 number yielded me nothing and I was told that the press release for the early preorder was "falsified". Haha.

    Don't give up. Good luck.

    The rep was very adamant when it came to business sales only. I say thus because my coworker tried the same thing after I got my order in and he wasn't able to get it because he doesnt have a business. I've read around that some are able to coax the business sales to get them a phone even if not a business customer. With my guy, no such luck

    One other thing to note here is that this is for new activations only, they won't let you do an upgrade early for the 9900. Tried to get a few reps I know to push it through, but they said if the upgrade system won't let them, their hands are tied.

    Really? That's too bad. My rep asked if I was doing an upgrade or new line. I got the impression I had a choice. Anyway I got FedEx departure notification. It's been a long wait. Tomorrow can't come soon enough!

    Not sure but I will post it when I find out. Unfortunately my apartment manager was not in the office when FedEx tried dropping it off so I have to now wait until around 4 pm to pick it up from the local hub. Talk about a tease!

    I just spoke to both T-Mo business care and my local business rep. They both told me that the 9900 wasn't available for upgrade yet and that I would have to wait until 8/31 to order an upgrade. Also, I confirmed that it when it does ship, UMA will not be present, but will be available via a software upgrade in 2 to 3 months. I guess I will wait until the UMA update is released, since it is a deal killer for me without it. Hopefully by then, the price will come down too.

    This was a new business line. I'm hearing upgrades aren't avaiable. Only new business lines.

    UMA for me isn't a need. With unlimited calling I just don't see the need. But I guess it would be nice to have the option.

    Again I was able to get it for 249 with the possibility of being able to take advantage of the mail in rebate thus bringing it down to 199. I don't see why it would be different pricing for other business reps.

    Wish T-Mobile would've just done what Verizon did and released it online to all customers instead of business subscribers exclusively. So annoying...

    FedEx says I cant show up to the hub until after 430 because that's the latest time the driver may get back in! Torture!

    So I have the Bold in hand. FedEx driver came back once more since he was in the area. Best BB ever. This might replace my all time favorite, the 7290...

    I'm a iPhone user that is making the switch, and your post inspired me to finally get some phones for my office. Called business agent and no dice for current ordering. I can pre-order and they will send Aug. 31. I'm currently with T and it works fine for me, great coverage where ever I go so no need to rush the purchase just yet.

    I'll wait until Aug. 31 and see if T has changed its mind about Thanksgiving.
