    Oh man! Decisions! I want my phone in the morning but I need to get it for $249, like offered online. I have an 18% corporate discount on phone service. Will that do anything for me?

    I think I just need to take a step back and re-evaluate my purchase options in the morning after local stores and phone customer service is open. I think I might try calling that VP office I talked with a few weeks ago to see if I can get any kind of discount. I just hope it doesn't sell out in the meantime!

    So I guess this will be my last post in this thread. I probably won't get back online until later morning tomorrow and I'm on the West Coast. So good night everyone!

    I don't blame ya. 3-4 days might just be an ass-covering clause, but $75 isn't worth the risk in my mind. Can you imagine if you didn't get the phone until Monday or Tuesday? That'd suck big time! Especially if after doing so, you realized you just locked yourself in for the whole term....ugh. Everyone should just go pick it up in 5 hours! You'll be much happier! Lol

    ordered from LetsTalk.com got it 144.95 shipped
    (Existing Customer/Primary line on family account, 2000 minutes shared, 1000 messages)

    For some reason when I clicked 1000 text messages.. the phone dropped like 30 bucks for me instantly... I wonder why?

    I was mostly a lurker here (except for the puny 100-200 posts I sprinkled in throughout the last month) so I won't be missed but I will miss reading this thread and about the people in it. Honestly, this thread made the wait for this phone about 50x harder! :D but in the end I think after I get the Galaxasorous Nex it will make it even more satisfying.

    Thanks to this forum I've learned lots about phones and because of the job done by the powers in charge I will definitely be returning here for all my phone questions, comments, and inquiries!

    But.....considering how addicted I am to this site now, I'm sure I'll keep lurking. In the words of a crappy goo goo dolls song, I'm addicted.

    One, two, three, four!
    Look around this dirty town
    Drink it up till we fall down
    Don't want to live forever this way
    But it's gonna have to do for today

    Oh, I'm addicted as I want to be
    I'm addicted as I want to be
    I'm addicted as I want to be
    I'm addicted as I want to be

    Before that hurried call (tweet)
    I had my back against the wall
    No, don't want to be shown (what an operating system is, seriously vzw?)
    Go out and learn your own

    I believe the corp discount gets you an instant rebate instead of mailing in for it (if mail in rebate is offered)

    Did you have unlimited text, pics and video for all accounts before? that cost 30

    LetsTalk gives you more of a discount when you select 1000 text message option. It's like an incentive for you to choose the more expensive option.

    I too doubt I'll be back before the thread is locked. I will see you all in the lounge and the rooting sections!

    Thanks to Steven58, EarlyMon, OTD, and the other Mods for keeping us in line and on track. I don't know any of you, but I enjoyed getting to know the web-based version of everyone.

    And, Steven, before you sing your happy song tomorrow, be sure and warm up those pipes first! We can't have our vocalist going hoarse!

    G'night, everyone!

    Well I can't order the phone till i see it in person; have to make sure the audio is loud enough et all. I'll probably go by corp store at 8am and see if they have a demo; and play with it and then decide to either buy it then; or do the online job. No offense but I just can't see buying a phone i never played with to ensure it is the right phone for me.

    That's weird cause I tried buying it again but selecting the 1000 text plan instead (everything else stayed the same, upgrade on family plan) it came out to $30 less.

    Well, to be fair, you'd still have the return policy even if you did.... but I know what you mean.
