    Yes there all auctions that I saw and I dont really like Ebay.

    I mean I want the Phone but its kind of weird that 95% of the stores in Central CA dont have the phone. Maybe if a few more stores actually had the phone I could have more of a chance

    I ran into that issue with the Motorola v300 back in the day when it came out. T-Mobile would only sell it to new customers, not as an upgrade. Carriers seem to have their priorities backwards. They should be nicer to their existing customers to increase customer loyalty...

    I walked into the san mateo, CA store this morning and bought mine outright. No new contract. No problem. Don't know if this is too far north for you.

    I think this early in the game with the 8800 it's luck of the draw. I strolled into my local Cingular store om a wim and picked one right up. They hadn't even put them in the inventory yet. I'm in SoCal though.

    Its technically up to the individual at the end of the day. I remember when I was working for cingy, if we had a good day with new activations, we wouldn't mind doing a few upgrades with high demand head sets. Just think of it this way, if they keep 8800 in stock they have a better chance of getting a new customer, and in the end new customers mean more money for the retailer. However upgrades our beneficial to us current customers, but nothing much to the restailer. In other words less money. With that being said like most companies are always looking for the most revenue they can make, so retailer will reserve there newer handsets with hopes of getting new activations!! Sorry that happened to you!! I'm guilty of doing that when I use to sell cellphones! It sucks when they do that!!

    Are you calling corporate stores? The non-corporate stores aren't going to be worth calling.

    I'd like whatever you're smoking... There's no way carrier will change their business models as long as US consumers expect subsidies on devices. The contract/ETF model is in place to lock in customers in exchange for the subsidy which is more than made up for with the service fees that customers are stuck paying. Why should they bother working to keep current customers when they can retain most by tossing them a bone via the retentions department?
