    IMO. It might be one of the easiest sales for them, because they don't have to do all of the contract paperwork.
    .
    This rep was wrong for telling you what he did. It shows his selfishness & lack of professionalism. It is a violation of ethics to discuss his compensation plan, or AT&T's compensation when selling their products. He acted like an idiot that does not appreciate his job working for a stable large scale enterprise where the opportunities are endless, and his benefits quite valuable.
    .
    You are absolutely right, that's an easy sale which benefits everyone. You're happy as you got what you came for. The store moves one more unit, which they get credit for beyond the financial aspect. And the salesman has a happy customer whom will spread the word of their great experience, thereby bringing him more business.
    It is these unfortunate events that create a bad customer experience and harm the perception of sales people everywhere.

    you SHOULD be able to , but your service provider my not be able to offer all the features from which the phone was built for. so maybe call and ask what they offer before you make the initial switch if its not to late.

    If i repeated posts im sorry, i didnt bother to read the 4 pages lol

    If any of you go to a company store on Tuesday and are willing to pay full price and the store says they can't sell it to you without a new contract, tell them you want to see the manager.

    This has happened before, they got to sell you a phone if you are willing to pay full price. If you are at an authorized dealer, chances are they will not have a Bold on Tuesday and if they did they CAN refuse a sale to hold for a new account if they wish.

    If you are at kiosk in the mall, RUN!

    If and when I convince myself to buy one on Tuesday. I sure will tell them I'd like to see a manager. Are you sure they are obligated to sell us one regardless?

    They are surposed too. I have not heard of many who were turned away at a company store, so I do not think you will have any problems.

    If the manager says no, get his name!

    You don't need a contract to buy a phone heh.
    They tried to pull that on me one time
    I used to work for telus, now I work for RIM officially
    I told them where to go and how to get off lol

    Ok, I'm leaning towards going to get one on Tuesday. I would like to hear others on TMO doing what I'm about to do.

    I have an unlocked Rogers Bold on TMO using os 4.6.0.167 I love it. I got it just last week.

    I knew from the beginning that 3g would not be available.
    I love the screen resolution, the call and sound quality and the other Bold features like the GPS. The phone works fine people.

    However I cannot as yet get phone to make UMA calls, and I cannot get online through regular browser only the hotspot browser (fix for this is on crackberry forums). But still love the phone.
    Dont sweat the small stuff, hell dont sweat anything!

    The bold DOES NOT support UMA. Its either 3G or UMA they dont like each other lol.
    Phones that support UMA : 8120, 8220, 8320 (and not sure about the 8820).

    Not to sound sarcastic but why haven't you fixed that issue then?
