    VS Store Match Amazon.com Prices?

    Just wondering if anyone has had any luck getting a Voicestream/T-Mobile store to match the price of 49.99 for the T68 or other phones? When I got my Nokia 8290 I didnt have a problem, but they seem to be putting up a fight. Hell when Rochester goes live I will have no problem buying my phone on Amazon.com and saving 200 buxs and waiting a couple days for it to arrive.

    When I was renewing the CSR said he would match the price of a new activation for a phone (v.60g -$90- and N105 -FREE-) at a local VoiceStream authorized dealer.

    you can get even better prices on v60 in local stores. like $100 - $100 rebate instead of 2 rebates

    any local store (esp. in ca) will beat a t-mobile/voicestream store in handset price, and by a lot usually.

    Well, obviously they are passing some of the commission to the consumer (kind of like subsizing the phone even more), just to get the consumer to sign a new activation.
    Life is tough.
    Tougher when you're stupid.
