    I have never seen an instant rebate, always a mail in rebate.

    one possible explanation is if you're doing a 1 yr extension instead of the 2 yrs

    You may need to select a qualifying rate plan. At least that's what I get from the details/offers page you posted.

    You didn't say what data plan you have. If it is the unlimited plan, it is no longer offered. To keep it you will have to go to a corp store. Keep in mind all corp stores are not created equal. some know how to do it and some don't.

    its the 2gb plan. decided that cutting five dollars off the months bill was worth it lol..

    i really do hate att customer service. most premier. its always a crapshoot to see what quality you get.

    I'm a premier member and qualified for a $99 Torch on 8/30/10.

    It's a standard 2/yr contract with 200mb/month data plan. I was told due to my account history, I was offered this discount, so I obviously jumped on it and got it for my wife!

    Strange thing was I called earlier in the month of August and at that time the rep quoted me $199.99 after $100 mail-in-rebate, I think. I happened to just follow up on 8/30 to ask a question about the Torch and the agent gave me a deal I couldn't refuse!

    Tell them you know another premium member who got the Torch for $99 and want the same deal. Never hurts to ask!

    + 1 on your err.. your brother's history as a premier member.
    that's how they compute the charges..
    it might be cheaper if you just get a new line instead $99/2yr contract

    okay called them this week. Its weird. The rep explained that because we were on add on line (10 dollars online) i don't meet the requirement for the minimum 39.99 voice plan even though hes on the 25 dollar data package. this is the weird part, he used the upgrade to buy the iphone 4 in july. Wasn't i supposed to pay more than the 299 when he already used the upgraded just 3 months ago?

    btw, was buying the torch at 299 a smart buy? or should have i saved it..?

    I initially had the same issue you did with trying to purchase it online through the premier store (the account is my moms) the price would go back to 299 in the cart, I just went to the at&t store and purchased it for $199 no problem.
