    How did you get such a good deal?
    I know me and Gary have been tryin to get the curve but we are looking for a better deal. $250 as an upgrade on Tmo...

    Gary, I wonder that too, I wonder if the 8120 is goin to make the curve price go down...

    Indirect dealers cant give that much of a deal on upgrades because they only get paid about $130 total on any upgrade...phone cost for dealer is over $400....so you see the problem...try retentions maybe they can offer something good...othernthen that craigslist is always good...gl i want one soooo bad too haha

    If you are out of contract you should try to speak with retentions and threaten to go to Att since the phone is cheaper. They may match the price.

    ^^ true...kinda.

    however, i've found indirects have a lot more of an opportunity to bargain with...especially when it's the end of the month and they are looking to meet goals or the like.

    as for att offering $99 curves, that's true, but their data is also twice as much...i think.

    for example...let's price a curve at a tmo store/dealer at $280 (which is a little high, usually $250 after rebate)

    1) - with a ONE year agreement for data you are paying $39.99(att) vs $19.99 (tmo) = $240 more.
    2) - $100 curve (att) vs $280 (tmo) = $180 less.

    sooo...for one year....data plus phone....

    - data with att ($480) + curve with att ($100) = $580
    - data with tmo ($240) + curve with tmo ($280) = $520

    in conclusion, haha, you are saving at least $60...even after paying $280 for the phone.

    just saying.

    Keep in mind that some indirect dealers have secondary contracts and some dont. This is to protect customers that sign up, get a discount, and then 3 days later cancel the contract with no penalty but keep the handset.. Its a shady way to upgrade and happens all the time.. If you happen to find a dealer without such a secondary discount, and you happen to pay cash for a phone that happens to be on promo for super cheap and you happen to not need the service 3 days later and cancel the service but happen to forget to return the phone...

    You might end up with with a super cheap phone with no strings attached lol.

    Add to that T-Mobile's horrendous coverage.
    The fact that the 8310 has a quicker browser.
    and the choice seems clear.
    An extra sixty bucks is worth it to have a signal.
    Of course opinions vary.
