    Mail in rebates SUCK ASS!.. Either it takes like a year to get your money back, sometimes they pull some bogus nonsense to not send you the money back at all..


    Think we will see any instant rebates on this like what Radio shack did with the evo? I gotta buy 2 of these phones, (my wife and I) after selling off 2 iphone 3g phones...

    If you order it online the rebates are instant a lot of time. That's the way it was w/ the Incredible IIRC.

    While I agree that the MIR's are a load of shit, I did get the ones for my 2 Eris' fairly quick, maybe 3 weeks. Don't like them tho, should just do an Instant Rebate or something, even in-store... Just doesn't make sense to me.

    Go to Best Buy then. No I'm not sure if they are getting it, but Best Buy is such a big third party mobile phone retailer that I'm 99% sure they will have it at launch date.

    Actually this rebate was pretty cool I got my $100 rebate visa card in 3 weeks. Then transfered the money to my checking account using the card's website.

    ^ this, plus you won't have to pay the sales tax.

    Rebates suck for expensive items like this because you still have to pay tax on the higher price..

    Just make sure you read the fine print. The reason they sell the phone is cheap is because if you ever happen to cancel you contract early, not only will you be charged an early termination charge by verizon, but by amazon as well. I think 250 if i remember right. I think that's the reason why they can offer cell phones dirt cheap;)
