    BlackBerry Ordered!

    Advertisement



    I've been hanging around the forum for a little while and debating an 8700c. Well, this morning I was cruising the Cingular.com site and saw that they had refurb 7290s for $69. I ordered one! I figured, to me, the 8700c is not worth another $270.

    It will be arriving on Weds. according to FedEx. I can hardly wait!

    Congratulations!

    Are you going to be using this as a cell phone as well? Which data/voice plan did you go with?

    Good luck.

    Gabe, excellent choice!~

    We've recently upgraded our BB users to the 7290 from the old 957. I've received positive feed backs and everyone seems to like the brighter backlighting.

    Call the cops! You STOLE that unit. $69 is great. It's worth getting one and having it unlocked for another carrier. They're still upwards of $250 - $300 on t-mobile.

    Thats a GREAT idea. I might do that. I think the future in-laws have an upgrade coming soon. Don't worry I pay the bill so I can take advantage of the upgrades :devilish grin:

    Re: BlackBerry Ordered!

    I am getting the unlimited data plan with Cingular. My FAN discount entitles me to a $40/mo plan for data only (as opposed to the normal $50). However, Cingular National Business Ordering doesn't sell refurbished products. So, I had to order it from regular Cingular and I will have to activate it on the $50/mo unlimited data plan and then switch it over to my FAN discount. Hopefully it will work

    I am not going to switch my phone over to this, I'll still be using my Sony Ericsson S710a on AT&T.
