Sick - it sure seemed like a real phone. Typical Best Buy... nobody came up to help so I just spent time with the phone, myself. It was one heck of a dummy phone if it was not real. It had all the details right down to the polycarbonate on the sides and such. Tomorrow, I am heading down to the local Sprint store. They have a stack of them ready for sale - all silver, though. BB had no news on when that beauty of a black one would be available.
