    Well I contacted the retentions department at AT&T and the lady I spoke to was extremly nice. Basically, the deal is:

    - I get $20 for the next three months
    - I get to keep my Captivate
    - I get to choose any AT&T phone except the iPhone come May 9
    - The Atrix will be available to me for $150 in May


    Questions:

    1. What should I do with my Captivate? I have to use it till May, but should I sell it then? How much would I be able to get? I don't really want to give it to my mom because it has so many problems.

    2. How does the Atrix compare to the Captivate? I really want an exact, extensive breakdown.

    3. When May comes, will there be a better phone to get than the Atrix?

    May I ask what you told them, that they offered this? I'm not due for an upgrade for another year.

    average price on ebay is like $250 right now so it will prob drop in price by may.

    why do you have to wait until may? i just spoke with the wonderful customer retentions and was told to pick phones now (including inspire and atrix) for all my lines except the iphone no discount on that.


    i cant comment on this but try looking the in atrix forum. I found a nice review in the inspire forum comparing the inspire v atrix and then inspire v captivate

    this is anyones guess. there will always be a bigger better phone coming out but if it will be there by may...dunno, maybe june or july etc.

    i was just using those months as examples i really have no idea what could possibly come out but chances are something will come out.

    one of my lines isnt within that 6 months but he had to call someone to get something removed to do it.
