    Question Local T-Mobile Stores Without Pearl

    Advertisement



    This evening my husband called six local T-Moblie stores and found that only two of them will actually have the Pearl tomorrow morning. Two said that they would not have it until the 18th and another one said not until the 16th. What's up with that? And why can't we find the price anywhere official? Has anyone else had this experience?

    The price will be $199.00 with a two year contract agreement full retail will probally cost around $299.00. Almost all stores should have the device stocked already and release them on September 12

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the price above is correct as per quite a few reputable sources... A lot of t-mobile stores/kiosks don't have a price because their computer won't give them a price until tomorrow at least that's what happened to me at 2 kiosks yesterday... Just wanted to verify the price from tmo store myself but no luck

    Maggie, Welcome to PinStack.
    Good luck on finding you the Pearl on the first day. My experience is that not all stores get theirs immediately, or all the ones they can get are already reserved for long time customers.

    Hello Maggie, welcome to pinstack.com. Working in cell phones for many years I have learned that corporate stores are the first to get the new releases, indirect stores follow behind shortly. Hope this helps.

    I hope one of those people is me!

    We will see though. The local store I am planning to goto seems to have new phones all the time, so perhaps I will get lucky.

    I was told it would be the 18th before they really started to become available. Our BB rep ordered 10 but didn't think he would see them today.

    I'm on the West Coast, so I will be headed out to one of the stores at about 10am PST. If anyone has had any luck getting one I'd love to hear from your. I will be really disappointed if I can't get mine today.

    I went to my local store at 9am, here on the east coast. I saw the sexy pearl boxes sitting behind the counter. They cant sell them until they are activated in the system, at 9am West coast time. So 12 noon is when they will officially be able to sell them. So Im actually on my way out of the office to go grab one! Hope they dont give me another excuse when I get there. Will let you all know!

    This is what happened the day the 8700 was released on Tmobile also. It seemed as if the Detroit area was the first to get them logged in. Then more and more throughout the day they started popping up at different locations. Nashville wasn't able to sell them until about 3pm that afternoon.

    I got mine. She had to override the price. But it was loaded. I paid 249, but wasn't eligible for the 50 mail in rebate for new suscribers, or those eligible for upgrades.

    Hey Toddboy, was that an outright purchase price?

    Re: Local T-Mobile Stores Without Pearl

    Here's what I am thinking...

    I really HATE suretype, however I do want to get one of these things to play with.

    Wondering if I should just go, pick one up, activate a 2nd line for it, and play with it until the full qwerty comes out, then just switch lines to the new one. Hmm...so many questions...

    One plus would be that I would be able to get an unlock code for the full qwerty as soon as I purchased it.
