The above example is basic voice service which I do not even look at. I need unlimited minutes.
Saving $1080 and not being able to make a phone call when I want to because I am over my minutes? What is that?
This is just the tip of the iceberg. There will be many different promos on the Bold. This is a model which may not hold it's value very long. RIM's recent history reveals that much like the short product cycle between the 8300 & the replacement 8310 less than six months later. It's highly likely the Bold 9000 will be obsolete in just 5 more months. That being the case, the current economic conditions are likely to cause AT&T scramble to move these out of their inventory & into the hands of customers. With retail sales predicted to be soft this holiday season, I think we will see the Bold discounted beginning in just a few weeks. Finally like any version 1.0 product the Bold that promises to be a really great BlackBerry is the second generation model with a tentative release date of Q2.

What can they add to the Bold? 9010?
$79 for a basic voice plan?
Wow, you guys are getting reamed.
What exactly do you get for $79?
What you are seeing is the reality of the current market conditions & the lack of demand for the Bold. All one must do is step outside into the mainstream area where customers have several choices of smartphones, the only model that is highly sought after. The only model with a high level of public awareness is the iPhone. Recent news reveals Apples plan to cut production as much as 40%, which speaks volumes about the changing dynamic of this holiday selling season. So we shall see what the last few weeks of this year bring.

That rebate seems ridiculous too...
You have to send it in with your 4th bill and it has to show a perfect outstanding balance...you have to send the rebate within 120-180 days or else it won't process.
After you send it, it will take another 8-10 weeks for it to process and send out.
If you're a new customer and you're signing up for a 79.99 (or 99.99) + 50.00 data and txt msg plan, there is no reason not to go with them.
If not, it's probably not worth all the hassle.
Can you post a link of where you read about the rebate info? I didn't see that when I was checking it out on walmart's page.

Completely agree with you archer. So, do you think I should hold off on getting a Bold and see what kind of deals will be made available or should I go in for the kill with Walmart?

She said she would talk to her manager to see what she can do to give me credits on my account so I don't port back to tmobile and back to att through letstalk.
I sent her to pinstack and advised her of the wisdom of clarifying things on this board if she can bring light on this.
I would feel very comfortable advising you to wait. Remember Black Friday is coming and I would scour the internet for all the deals 3 days before that day (day after Thanksgiving), including the BlackFriday site which will be expanded this season. Remember, this last few weeks of the year are the most critical weeks of the entire year for retail sales which includes mobile phones. The Bold is simply too high priced at it's current msrp to not be one phone that will have it's priced slashed. Finally remember the only strong demand is within the community of enthusiats like ourselves. No one in the mainstream has been foaming at the mouth to get one of these...... therefore after the inital rush is over to fill orders for crackberry addicts, you may find some shockingly low prices. That's my take for what it's worth. Remember there is nothing worse than just paying full pop for your phone only to see it at half price two weeks later. This Wal-Mart deal is no fluke. Just the first of many.

This is just another example of a person who has no clue and unfortunately has no problem making things up to tell the customer. Remember at the end of the day it is YOUR reponsibility to read the entire contract you sign, as you are responsible no matter what is said by any sales rep, district mgr etc. Too many people are gullible, listen to anything, and sign anything, only to be caught off guard later, after it's too late.
