    If you haven't tried your blockbuster app, do it. You get an email from blockbuster with a promo code for $5 for activating your blockbuster app on your X. I rented "She's out of my League" for $3.99 so it was free and i have money left over for my next rental.

    I'm guessing you have to sign up with your credit card info before you get the credit, right? I don't know because I have yet to receive my phone.

    I know you can see the $5 on blockbuster.com. I haven't looked to see my remaining balance since I rented my first movie. But no they don't put it on your debit card, that would not make any sense, they want to make sure you spend it on their site.

    no the $5 will not be put on your debit card. it will be put on your blockbuster account. you just have to sign up with your debit/credit card in case you rent any more afterwards.

    They got you! Now you have to buy one to use the rest of your credit. Frankly I think they are WAY over priced.

    Will a one time use cc with an expiration soon work to get the free movie with no risk of future charges?

    It will if there is enough of a balance on it to cover whatever the amount is they set for deposit or whatever you want to call it.


    Ask me how I know.:eek:

    As long as it is valid when they do a $1 charge to make sure it is a valid card (the charge shows up as pending but never posts to your account, it just goes away after a day or 2), then yes that will work fine.

    Is this a streaming service or does it download the whole movie locally?

    In other words, can I watch a movie where I have no 3G/Wifi access?

    It downloads to your phone. It requires wifi to download but took me less than 10 min to download an entire movie. You have 30 days to watch a rental, and once you start watching it you have 24 hours until it expires.

    How much room on the SD card to typical movies take? How's the quality?

    I'll probably save the $5 credit until my next flight.

    I don't understand why they don't allow streaming the rental through HDMI to our tv's. I mean it would be one thing if there were other options out there, but my Xbox 360 has Netflix, my sony blu ray has Netflix...it's just natural for people to want to watch it on a BIG screen. Cmon blockbuster, be the first ones to allow us to watch movies anywhere on any device and i'll give you your 4.99....otherwise Redbox is $1 rentals...and Netflix is 9.99 a MONTH!

    I totally agree. I won't rent very many movies on my phone until we can use hdmi, then i will rent a lot more on my phone.

    So are we able to use the $5 credit to have Blockbuster send us a movie to our house then, or do we have to use it on the X?

    I think you can use it for what ever you want. It is just a credit on your blockbuster
    account.

    One word of caution (I learned this the hard way!). See if the movie is available on the phone, then "Rent" it on the PC, THEN DOWNLOAD it to the X. If you RENT it on the X, you will have your Visa charged instead of using the credit they give you. And the offer expires 7/31!
