Just got back from a TMO retail store where a friend of mine just picked up the 8700g. He was able to use the Amazon advertisement to get the price down to $49.99 (with a 2 year agreement).

They ended up giving him a discount on the phone, and a rebate, and a $100 credit on his first invoice.

So......

As mentioned in other threads, deals can be made at the retail location. Just be sure to have your game plan (and any backup documents) before walking into one of their stores.

This looks like the route I will go for sure. Let them know that if they want the activation from me they will have to give me a good deal.

It depends. At most retailers, you have to return the phone before you can cancel the account within Cingular's 30 day cancellation policy. Chances are that Amazon is the same way. You dont return the phone, you keep the account. Otherwise, I am sure there would be plenty of people doing that (buying a phone and canceling before the ETF hits).

Default 8700g on Amazon with 1 year contract?

Hello,

When I go to Amazon.com and add the 8700g to my cart with a service plan, the only option I have is a two-year contract (which I try to avoid at all costs). Has anyone been successful signing a one-year contract or know how to do it on Amazon?

Thanks

i bought an 8700c for my wife on amazon. she had the unit for 14 days and decided to return it (for a treo 650..hmmmmm) I called cingular and they cancelled the account. (this was a 2 months ago) I told them I was going to return the blkbry to amazon. I called amazon and told them I want to return it. they gave me a hard time and wanted me to pay for shipping back. I refused. I told them Ill send it back to them after they call me with a fedx number to use. they never called me back. So I have a new $150 8700c at my house now.
i also aplied online for the rebate the first week I got it. It says in process but I'm sure it will get denied now that we cancelled the number. But if I get money back in a couple of months I will let u guys know!

for the record.. I called cingular last week and confirmed the line was closed. I just had to pay for a prorated bill.

I only see 1 year contract on Amazon so I called them and they say they don't resell this phone with 2 year contract.
They also told me that I might be able to get T-Mobile to change the agreement after I get the phone and the 150$ Amazon rebate will still work.

Wish me luck !

I just got mine a few days ago. Originally it was $300 before rebates, but I called Amazon and they adjusted the price.


If the Amazon rebate does not go through you still get a 8700g under a one year contract for $150 shipped (T-Mobile $50 rebate).


subodhgupta - As far as not having free nights/weekends you can change your plan after you get the phone. Realize the BB Minutes and Mail plans offer unlimited text messaging and if you move to a standard rate plan with nights/weekends you would lose the free texts and get 400 less minutes....for the same price.

Bought the phone, and called Amazon when I received shipment.
They said that they only resell Tmobile phones with 2 year contracts and that you will not be eligible for $150 rebate if you change to a 1-year contract with T-Mobile.
Also, when you purchase the phone, the price offered has to be with a 'compatible rate plan' where you're only able to select a 2-year (at least when I bought it).

Does anyone know if you can order it from Amazon for $175 and then change the plan to a data-only plan when you activiate it? I don't care if I don't get the rebates. Thanks!

Good question. I'd like to know the answer too. I have (and will always have) Verizon as a phone carrier. But for my BB I'm considering the 8700g from Tmobile.

If you add it to your cart with one of their service plans (there are only two, and they are both voice-only), it is $175. I'm going to call Amazon today to see if I can find an answer.

Couldn't you order it from Amazon and then call Tmobile and change the plan to data only?
