    I just placed my order. My billing and normal shipping address is in CA, however, I will be in Maui on 4/29. In CA you have to pay sales tax on the retail price of the phone which would have been about $45 (or so). Because it is being shipped to Hawaii (even though it is billed to CA) I only had to pay $4 sales tax. My total bill was $104.17 that included free overnight shipping to HI.

    Those of you traveling out of CA or in CA but close to the border may wish to have your new phone shipped to another state if its worth your hassle. I don't care too much about the savings but I thought I would share this with others that might.

    Good thought but I doubt this will help most people. Or most of you could just wait and order off Amazon to save on the sales tax.

    Off topic but I wish I was going to Maui. :(
