Third time, spoke to David he rocks! Should get it by Wednesday express shipping also got the installment payments just because he offered and it wasn't a bad idea either...Yes We Stackers Can!!!
Everyone keep trying, I guess third time is the charm!
The other 2 times I spoke with female reps, David was extra nice, he def looked out for me.
Not sure if this helps, but the third time I tried there was some hold music playing for a few seconds then the phone rang...keep trying stackers!

Okay I want one to. I have a full upgrade so how does that work?

Well you should be able to get it for $299.99 with Mail-In-Rebate so it would be $200.00 for you.

so i guess this only works with people already with t mobile

I think tht if u r with tmobile it may be a plus but as a new customer they may be able to give u an even better deal. If tht doesn't work then u may have to wait until 2/11 to order it online.

That's Whats Up!
@FemaleMC - glad you got it! (Cause I would have been ticked)
To the others wondering what's the deal with getting it now - I agree with the business call center explanation (they just not checking deep enough).
I'm just hoping there is no blow back (*fingers crossed and praying hard!*)

I know on the repair side we are seeing more repairs coming through in attempts to cut spending wherever they can.

No pressure, right? Haha. I honestly don't know what I'll do yet, I know I'm going to have to get over the bezel swapping fear sooner or later though. The backing looks like metal though.. Hmmm I dunno. We'll see!

4th times a charm. I think it depends on which call center you get connected to. Maybe there's mroe than one and some are more willing to sell the 8900? The first 2 girls were very nice, but said they could not sell it until the 11th. The 3rd girl was very helpful and set up the upgrade to the 8900. I was transferred to the automated contract agreement line, and then the call disconnected! It was so scary! I called back and this time got a guy who was either high or sleep deprived. He finished setting the upgrade up, but commented that he didn't understand where the other rep had gotten the $324.74 price from (299.00 plus tax). He thought it should be a lot lower. Turns out he thought I was trying to upgrade to an 8320! But that was cleared up and he finished all the upgrade stuff. So now I just have to wait for my mother to forward the text message to me. (I used her line to upgrade.) Just a few more days til it arrives!

I called today acted like it was already out.....and with out hesitating they were like sure no problem.... But they wanted 429 for it with a 70 mail in rebate with a 2 year contract?? apparently im only eligible for a partial upgrade... Ive been with TMO for 5 years paying 100+ for two lines is there anyway of getting a lil better price? How do i get to retention? they offer some sort of credit thing but i have to go into the store and sign something... has anyone heard of that?
Now i call back to order it and got a different rep and they are telling me that it's not avavilable, I told the rep that i called earlier and it was all set up, and they say that they are sorry that it must have been a mistake! But they would be kind enough to put a note to call me back on the 11th!! grrr i should have just ordered it right off the bat!!
