I wish they would offer an instant rebate rather than a mail in. Their mail in rebates take forever to come lol. I'm hoping Amazon will offer it, at the 200 price tag without the MIR, as they have with other phones. I was actually about to order a new metro 4g phone tonight, when I saw this. Why buy a $300.00 esteem when I can get this in a couple weeks? I'm definitely excited, and this will be a huge upgrade from my good old optimus m. I do love my optimus, it has such a huge development community, buuuuuuut.... its time for some 4g loving for this guy. R.I.P. optipus... (pet name) lol..
