    I've been watching the prices for T-Mobile's Vibrant:

    - On their web upgrade pages it's 199.99 after the $50 mail-in-rebate
    - When I selected to compare it to several other phones, the comparison page shows it at 149.99 but the details page goes back to 199.99
    - On their web site without logging in, the price is 99.00 with no mail-in-rebate bull!

    Why does a person with no T-Mobile history get the Vibrant for 1/2 the price they want from me plus they don't have to deal with the mail-in-rebate stuff?

    I think I'll be making a call to their customer service soon.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Most cell phone companies do it like that. It's to attract new customers. The older ones will more then likely stay regardless of what the upgrade price for a new phone is.
