All four stores in my area have good inventories. The phones are selling well, you should be able to easily find one. You're going to really enjoy it. I am completely happy with mine.So I ended up having to work all day and was unable to pick up the phone. I know every town will be different but was just wandering if anyone knows how many where selling out in there area.
Yeah, we sold quite a bit, and the remaining stock is on reserve for people who said they were coming in on monday. While we had about 6 or so people come in and ask about the phone, most the rest of the customers were people we converted from Iphones
my most notable experience was this:
a nice lady came in wanting to upgrade to a pantech link (basic messaging phone) she said she already has an Ipod touch, and an Ipad and asked me if an iphone would be worth it for her. I asked her if her Ipad is the one that gets 3g and she said yes. I told her that the ipad with 3g IS an iphone with out the phone part so she would probably be better off with out a smart phone and paying for the data. As i was processing the upgrade, she heard my coworker ask me a question about my phone. She saw my phone and asked me about it. She asked me why I dont have an iphone. I told her that I love android, I told her the value of android and how its different then Ios. I told her I have an Ipad at home that bridges the very small gaps between android and Ios with things like netflix, but thats all coming to android anyways. Long story short, she asked to buy the Inspire, and as soon as i put it in her hand and was showing her how to use it, she was so happy and wanted to go home and rub it in her husbands face who just got the iphone 4.
it was a good day for sure.
I was the first one to pick one up at my local store, but they only had 10. While I was there 2 others showed up to buy the phone, and at least 2 people called to see if they had them and to say they were going to come pick them up. Most people in the store, which was very busy, IMHO, were buying iPhone 4's.
The att stores i went to were pushing the inspire HARD. anyone who walked in, INSPIRE, come check it out. 80% of the people who got one while I was there didn't even know it existed before they stepped foot in the door lol
Make sure you get an air-sickness bag because you are in for an unbelievable ride! lolWOOOP WOOOOP. Called the last store and they had a few left. Guy is holding one for me. Leaving now. Thanks for all the help guys. I am so excited. I have had my current iphone 3g for 2 1/2 years. Def time for an upgrade.
It's a beautiful thing to not be tied down to only the iPhone as such a powerful device on at&t.. The captivate just wasn't quite there... and people have told me (from a general consumer point of view) that they like the Inspire over the Captivate because it's easier to navigate... which in my opinion is true. It's just good to hear my customers say that....
Maybe they would be selling out if AT&T would have put out one or maybe two ads for this awesome phone???
