    I was told this morning that the phone was on backorder and I asked if I was able to cancel the order and I was told I wasn't until 20minutes later, t-mobile gave me a call and asked if I wanted to get my refund or just wait until the phone came in stock... But luckly they found a store 25miles away from my house so I was able to cancel my order and I now have the phone... They only had 2 left and I got one out of the 2

    Back orders, what a sham. I am afraid that RIM is pumping out their next batch at top speeds just to make sure they have them out so people could buy them because they know the first batches sold like crazy. That perhaps explains why the 3 8900's out of the production date 060209 I had to exchange.

    This whole situation sounds like the G1 release. People who pre-ordered were getting their phones AFTER people who ordered on the day it was released. It was crazy and a big mess! Hopefully, this won't happen with the 8900 release and all of the people waiting will get it soon.

    Feel damn lucky I scored mine on the 11th. Had to set up a new line on my account to get the full discount, but it was well worth it.

    Ordered mine on Saturday, called in just now and was told "pending shipment." CC rep said that it may or may not have shipped out (although unlikely) and UPS haven't given them a tracking number (UPS pick it up, then give T-Mo a tracking number). Considering UPS suck with tracking numbers I'm hoping I'll get mine soon.

    That's not too uncommon to see that, T-Mobile will just tell you that upgrade and new acct stock are in seperate warehouses. Of course who really knows, doesn't surprise me because the industry focuses more on customer acquisition than customer retention.

    Just be patient and the phone will be shipped out as soon as possible. But since not everyone isn't patient about it, keep calling t-mobile until they can do better for you such as giving you reimberrsement onto your bill or give you some kind of discount. I have discounted international calling, and they are giving me the amount used credited it back to my account. so keep calling because they know that we aren't happy. And I totally agree that they need to put the phone as temporially out of stock on the website because it will cause more problem and the company will lose more money.

    or they wont lose money...as they can credit us existing customers $20 here and there....but they make it all back from every new customer ordering the phone.....i don't see them taking it off their site

    Umm no not really. firstly, there were no pre-orders for this device. Second, I ordered mine only a couple hours after it was released and I still received it on the 12th.

    I do think you got lucky...but there is some communication errors, which won't be solved until T-Mobile reps stop acting like they know everything for sure....and at the same time they all say something different...even a manager wouldn't let me cancel my back ordered phone order
