No Contract extension for $349??

Only a little over an hour into the upgrades and already a story is developing. Apparently the quick fingered ones who got into the Tmobile site to upgrade within the first 10 minutes or so were given an option to choose No Contract Extension and get the Sidekick 3 for only $349. Others that logged in a little later, or called in were quoted a $399 price if they elected not to extend their contract. What does this mean? We’re not 100% sure yet. We caught Britne in the shoutbox and she gave TMobile a call. The rep said that we were “the lucky ones” and that this was a mistake, but that it would still go through. Stay tuned as this story develops. Here are the conflicting screenshots. First mine:

  5. phaserx Says:

    i hope to god they at least offer a 1 year contract at the store in santa monica tomorrow.. I’d prefer no contract, but i’ll do 1 year.. I’ll be PISSED if I they only allow 2 year contracts, but i’ll probably still do it anyways. 😉

    I was at a party enjoying a few Tequila shots then I looked at my phone saw that it was midnight and immediatly left and called them. They lady slipt at first and said oh looks like you’re a lucky one…Oh wait… it’s not available yet.. Then she refreshed and said oh yes sir you are one of the lucky ones. I got mine for 349. with no contract I was so happy. I first though maybe this site was wrong with the prices but it seems they did a little special and had us all fooled. Who would have thought, me being so impatient actually saved me 50 bucks! With express delivery and tax it came to a total of 390 something. I am sooooooooo excited, I just wish their shipping times were quicker. Might get mine on Friday or monday

    I logged in and wasn’t offered the 349 no extension, then I logged out and relogged in again and it came on as 3 options. So keep logging in, might work for ya.

    I got mine for 299.99 for a two year contract which i dont mind cause i started my contract in tmobile about 4 months ago. so i dont mind loosing those four months to pay less for the phone.

  12. Drfred4lyfe88 Says:

    i just called tmobile i have to extend my plan 2yrs to get for 299.99 if not 399.99 *** hell no i aint getting it right now

    I called Tmo and they offered up the $349 upgrade for a one year contact (which has been pulled from the web). I took it.

    Interestingly, no free shipping when you call, but express shipping is the same as the web ($15).

    how did u get it for a 1 yr contract extension when i called and they said i can only get it for a 2 yr extension

  16. kathleen Says:

    Bape, call and complain. The server for 1 yr contracts was broken when I called and I told them I wasn’t getting a 2 year contract so they did a “verbal”1 year contract, whatever that means.

  17. Drfred4lyfe88 Says:

    that means she did wat i did i called the company and requested a 1 yr extension it came up to 390.10 but like an idoit i wanted to save money and didnt pay 5 dollars extra for express o well july 7th … i can wait one more week wat the hell lol
