    I activated the Tour 7/14/2009 but I ordered it on 7/12/2009. Lame.
    Yeah found that out today as well, it is the ship date they use. I ordered on the 13th and they shipped onthe 14th. I hope EPP is right on this one. THe reason they use the ship date rather than activation date is, that people wait sometimes to activate.

    You need to have two eligable lines
    please clarify.... i have 2 lines that the contract ends next month. both are eligable for upgrades. does that mean i get to use bogo? i know i tried online and that option did not come up once i logged in (but it did before i signed into my account)

    If both lines are eligable yes you can - if the line does not become eligable till next month then the system will not do it. Call CS and they can make it happen for you.

    NOt sure there will be option to pick, I think if both lines show as eligable it is automatically done upon check out.

    Just looking for a little bit of information, hoping someone here can help.

    I have my own line and currently have the storm. It would be nice to have the option of a physical keyboard and am considering picking up the Tour. My mom has a voyager that she detests. We've come to realize a touchscreen phone is not for her.

    I'd like to get the Tour for myself and get her a regular phone Is that possible or is the BOGO limited to Blackberries?

    Thanks for any help,

    Liv

    Quick question guys, me and my gf each bought Tour couple weeks back and still on 30 day period. We both paid $199 each for the phone and I'm kinda upset to hear about bogo deal this soon! We both did a contract upgrade. Anyways, since we are both in 30 days period, will verizon do price adjustment and give 199 back? Or do we have to return our phones and repurchase with bogo deal? it sound like a hassle but well worth it if I can save $199.

    Thanks for the quick reply...i knew there was a way, but an online rep told me it was not at all possible:


    A Verizon Wireless online pre-sales specialist has joined the chat. You are now chatting with Valerie
    Valerie: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
    Valerie: Are you an existing Verizon Wireless customer?
    You: Yes i'm an existing customer...just renewed my contract on August 2nd with a BlackBerry Flip 8230 and just saw that there is now a buy one get one free promotion...how do i go about getting another BlackBerry?
    Valerie: You will not be able to get the buy one get one offer unless you actually do another upgrade.
    You: really? couldn't i just return my current one and then buy another?
    Valerie: No, you are not able to do that.
    You: oh is that so? what about the 30 day worry-free guarantee?
    Valerie: You still will not be eligible for the buy one because your device was ordered before we had the offer.
    You: well i think you're wrong but thanks anyway...bye

    I was hoping they would just honor the BOGO without having to go through all that hassle, especially since i just installed my screen protector yesterday
    if you have a second line ready for an upgrade they can just cross with your ace and give you the bogo, only issue you could only get the curve since that is cheaper than your flip, thats the easiest way to do it

    I just bought my tour as a new line to my family plan on friday and was told I could ONLY use BOGO for another bb but would like to get this netbook or some other item and was told I could not...how do I go about getting what I want? I do not want to activate another blackberry. the customer service people on the phone also seem to not know.

    You don't. The offer is for buy one BlackBerry, get one qualifying BlackBerry free. It is not buy one BlackBerry, get another device of equal or lesser value, nor is it a set your own terms or create your own deal.

    The terms of the offer are very specific.

    Yes. Go back to the store as long as you are within 30 days they should work with you on getting you 199$ back...

    So, if this is in fact a BOGA and not BOGO, where on the Verizon Wireless website can I find that info, so I can bring it into my local store and do it for a basic phone for my daughter?

    I should chime back in....my local authorized seller allowed it to be a BOGA for me. I upgraded my enV to a Tour and they let me get an enV 3 (new line) for my daughter for free (aftre rebate). Perhaps I was just lucky that I have a local store with great customer service.......
