    If it is AT&T, I might be interested. PM me if so.

    Re: how much did you pay for your 8800?

    I just upgraded myself from the 8700 to the 8800 - found it on Craigs List for $280.00 bucks, brand spankin' new I've bought 5 BlackBerries off of CL for myself and employees over the past year and a half (I usually post an ad saying I'm looking for a BlackBerry in perfect condition with absolutely NO imperfections).

    I've found that a lot of non-BES users buy them because they look cool and then find out the functionality is a little more "business-like" than they thought, or got talked into too much phone by a slick salesman and want to recover the cash. It's a great way to get a basically new BB without any contract extensions.

    Just be careful that they weren't using BIS to push their emails and didn't deactivate that feature. I found out the hard way that even if the previous owner drops the BlackBerry off their account, the PIN stays active with RIM for BIS and you're stuck with a bunch of someone elses junk in your inbox, and it's impossible to stop unless you can track down the old user and get them to call AT&T for you (though they'll probably be pretty quick about it if they realize you're getting all their personal e-mails on your shiny new handheld

    Re: how much did you pay for your 8800?

    You HAVE TO COMPARE the price for monthly Service with the cost of the Hardware folks. If you pay only an extra $10 per month for service thats $240. There is a reason they "give" the phones away... Either the Service is expensive (see below example), the phone is used, refurbished or the owner "found" it and doesnt need it anymore...

    I got $549 less $200 instant discount at TMo website = $349 less 14.3% military discount (hardware and service discount). $0 activation fee.
    $59.99/mo (n.i. discount) = 1000 anytime nationwide minutes and unlimited BB/GPS/Internet/data program (with only a 1 yr contract)

    You would be surprised at the number of organizations/businesses/schools that get discounts on service and hardware. Dont miss out.
    Optional MyFaves (unlimited calling to any 5 numbers for $6.95/mo) available if i ever get friends.

    My simple search of Amazon 8800 produced ZERO TMobile results and 1 ATT 8800 option available for $150 with 2yr contract ($250 cancelation).... Comparable ATT service to mine is a whopping 900 minutes $59.99 + BB internet $29.99 = $90/mo !!

    final math is (drum roll please) "save" $150-$300 on hardware (couldnt find .01 plans everyone was mentioning but...) and you spend extra on service $30 x 24= $720 Do your own math and then (try to) return your .01 phone

    Final note regarding Warranty: Buying the phone on a Platinum MC/Visa doubles the Mfg Warranty... HOWEVER, My t-mobile warranty states on page 1 that the warranty is NOT transferable. So buying a used/pre-owned/pre-registered phone can come with the grim reality that you have no warranty rights for up to 2 years. Better spend the extra $6.95/mo for extended coverage. $7 x 24=$168 smackers.

    You get what you pay for... buyer beware !

    I went to a rim "wireless crm seminar" posted on many blackberry websites. I got a brand new 8800 and attempted to unlock and find out it wasn't on the att db.. so i had to spend 50 bones to get it internationally unlocked with adam from gsmphonesource. Took 6 days but worked like a charm.

    My buddies did what i did and no issues unlocking.
