    Does the SERO Plan qualify for the mail in rebate?

    I am on a SERO plan. To my knowledge rebates apply to all phones if you are no longer on a contract or if you can talk sweet talk the rep into selling you a new phone for the after rebate price while still in contact.:) When the Centro first came out I had a year until my contract was up. I was able to get 2 Centros for the after rebate price of 99.99 each if i extended my contract… so i did. March 2009 my contract is up and i will have a loyalty discount of $150.00 off plus any rebates… saweeet…..

    The answer is sorta. It works in landscape mode only if you are in a program that works in landscape mode. Unfortunately texting isn’t one of those applications.
