    8700g for free

    Advertisement



    This may be common knowledge here, but I hadn't seen it posted that often, so thought I'd relay my recent experience buying a new 8700g. These forums have been so helpful to me deciding what I wanted/needed, hopefully this'll help someone else.

    I'd finally narrowed down my choices to that phone, and to going with T-Mobile as the carrier based on rates and usability in the UK. I went to a T-Mobile store in San Diego and almost bought the phone there and then when I figured at the last minute I should go and see ifthe TMO website had any deals. Just happened across a thread here before I bought that mentioned a website where I could get a new 8700g for free (after $50 mail-in rebate to TMO) provided I was a new customer and agreed to a 2-year contract. I checked with TMO and they confirmed it was an authorized re-seller. the site is www (dot) wirelessbuy (dot) com - can't post links. "Bought" the phone tonight and with 2-day shipping, it'll cost me $20 total plus the 2-year commitment, which, even if i break, means the phone cost me $220 versus the $349 the store was offering (and that was presented to me as a 'deal').

    So check out that website before you buy if you're not a TMO customer already and are ok with 2 years.

    amazon.com has various flavors of the same arrangement and that's how I bought mine a week ago. Arrived 2 business days later.

    Just make sure you read the fine print. A lot of times when you buy from re-sellers, there is a catch! You are essentially signing an agreement with the re-seller as well as the wireless provider. I know that through Amazon there's a ton of fine print! If you make a late payment in the first 6 months they will charge you 250 bucks! If you change your phone number in the first 6 months: 250 bucks, if you swith device: 250 bucks, etc, etc... Keep in mind that this is on top of the 200 dollar early termination fee is you decide to cancel...
