    So I recently purchased my blackberry at Costco along with a plan, but they didn't have red so I settled for titanium. I called the T-mobile customer service to see if there was any way I could get a red and they told me to go to Costco, cancel my plan, then go to a T-mobile store where they carry the red one and start a plan there. Considering how much money I saved at Costco, I don't think that's gonna happen. Anyone have any ideas on how I can trade for a red phone?

    I've tried blackberryforums.com and posted about wanting a trade but no replies yet, e-bay is too hassling because I'd have to sell mine first for the money then buy a red one..

    You could always paint it yourself! Or send it off to Colorware!

    Check out this post from BeckyMae. She paints them and does a really nice job for a reasonably small fee.

    Did you ask how much they'd charge you at the store? Couldn't the phone CS make a deal so all you had to do was pick up a device at a store? Sometimes they'll make a deal to get you, so why not call a store and see what they'll do for you.

    hey i understand your frustration...

    When i was getting my iPhone, i had opened a line of service with AT&T to check coverage...within a week, the iPhone came out and they ran out, so they promised a direct fullfillment order within 4 days. Nothing came in and when i check the online order....they cancelled it. So obviously i was fuming. I call an apple store the tuesday after the launch and one 2 hours away had an iPhone. Since the line of service was thru att i had to cancel that line and return the phone to that ATT and start a new line of service at the apple store!!

    It stunk. And on top of it, i had the phone for 9 days, i used the phone for 5 text messages and not one phone call...and my bill was 112.95...

    then i also had my iphone bill which was 198 the first month. I was not a happy camper....

    so i definately understand your frustration!!!!!!!

    Why don't you just sign up with the carrier that sells the red one? Verizon!

    I've never even heard of housings till this thread! I've been looking at various websites and the average price for a housing is about $50, red ones are about $30ish. The idea of a housing is really neat, but kinda frivolous. I talked to BeckyMae and a purple one is $55 w/ shipping, my bday is on the 20th so we'll see! : ) Thanks guyss
