How many can I buy?
Can this phone be used with my AT&T account if I just swap the SIM card?
Duh… I see I can order 3 in 3 different order–nevermind.
Can this be unlocked, so that I can use with my t-moibile service ?
Ok. I bought 2 on 2 different orders. Hope this works out.
Does this phone work with Google Mobile Maps GPS? (the blue dot)
Thanks for the information.
Is this dead? The link doesn’t work.
We’re working on it. We’ll have an update shortly, unfortunately due to east-coast time differences… that update likely won’t come until tomorrow.
Went straight to the AT&T site and ordered OK. It’s just the link (above) that isn’t working.
Yes, but you won’t get cashback if you do that. You need to wait until tomorrow, in order to get it for $15.
how is the cashback issued? this, i don’t quite understand.
what happened to this page? i’ve been waiting all day since yesterday for it to come back as per christopher rice’s comment..but still no. Now the phone has gone up in price $39.99. don’t know if i’ll pull the trigger anymore
We’ll have an update shortly. Rest assured… I had the entire team get up at 5:30 AM to take care of this… we’ve been hard at work on it for almost seven hours straight (and counting).
ok, great. well, since you’ve ‘teamed’ up with at&t, will we still be able to get this phone for $15 after cashback still? as i said, the at&t site has changed the price to $39.99..hopefully yes!
Hi folks, I do have an update… unfortunately it’s not what you were hoping for.
AT&T did not return any of our calls, even ones they promised to. The entire team is really depressed right now that AT&T is choosing to not work with us, as they agreed to in our contract.
We will continue to try and communicate with AT&T to resolve this outage. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we can only point to AT&T as the cause of the problem at this time.
My wife is a systems analyst manager and these people(at AT&T) are working 12-16hrs a day as SBC is too cheap to hire more people.
She has been working up to 20 hrs a day on Salary………………….No BS. It’s sad, she is getting literally sick from lack of sleep etc. and I haven’t gotten any for weeks. :>()
IT’S SBC, they bought the AT&T name, that’s all.
Uh… so will you honor the cashback for those of us that already ordered before the snafu?
We’ll have an update on that later today. One way or another (and I don’t want to get into worst case scenarios… but…), we promise nobody will lose money.
