well, i was not happy about no l.e.d. notification light, but i can't pass this phone up. i have read and watched so much good about this phone that i am getting it. i called t-mobile this a.m. and asked the "overseas" girl to connect me to the loyatly dept. i had 8 months left until full upgrade. i begged the guy for the best deal he could do for me, and this is what i got. $280.00 for the phone, no activation fee, $20.00 a month for android service, he gave me free express shipping. i am pleased with this deal, it is not perfect, but i have no mail in rebates and i was still a long way away from full upgrade. ps: boy has t-mobile initial customer service ever changed!! you used to call and they would pick up right away and you would be speaking to an english speaking person, it was quite nice. NO MORE, those days are gone, you sit on hold forever, and are sent overseas. do you guys think my deal was at least o-k?? please let me know, thanks.
