    I suppose I could put something like “first comment” here. But I’ll resist that asinine urge.

    Yesss :)… even though I won’t be getting it. 🙁

  2. Ya Boy B Says:

  3. qver Says:

  4. Phate Says:

  6. youngeurow Says:

    I don’t qualify for the upgrade but I do for the two year agreement so I’m on hold now *sigh*

  7. youngeurow Says:

    Its only$299 for me

  8. CJDynasty Says:

    Sucks that I have to wait until July 10th, but oh well. I had a chance to mess around with one today. It doesnt perform that much better than the II, but hey, its all new to me anyways so Ill be copping. PS. The track ball is probably the best part about the phone.

  9. sk3owner Says:

    Did you do the commitment for 2 years? I chose the $350 price without the contract. It didn’t even mention 2 year contract.

  11. mikeHUNT_SEXMACHINE Says:

    im on hold, imma try and get it for lower over the phone becaus emy dad said its tooo much..btu imma beg him to get it for 318

  12. fuu Says:

    I ordered mine via Customer Service, the rep was killing time or something for 15 minutes until she finally accessed the SK3 on her computer. And she extended my contract for 2 years and express delivery. It took like 15 minutes all together.
    I was on the computer aswell, but after the SSN confirmation page the site was stuck and didnt take me to the confirmation page, but at the same time the rep was like I’ll do it for you. ahhaha

  13. mikeHUNT_SEXMACHINE Says:

    FUU how did you pay??? over the phone?

  14. mikeHUNT_SEXMACHINE Says:

    im still on hold imma bout to stab myself..i just wanna clcik submit my order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but my dad will kill me!

  15. GreekPharoah Says:

    Anybody at the Madison Ave location in NYC now? I’m kinda nervous about the “crowd”. If any one is there now, wanna update us on whats going on?

    The blog spot site claims to have taken pictures of the forming crowd outside of the store. I dunno if he took the pics or not (why would’nt he be on line himself if he was in NY?) but those people do look like NYers.

    I knew I shoulda camped out there tonight…anyway, see you in a few hours…

  24. fdpkid Says:

    Lets talk about hell… The site wouldnt let me upgrade and the first person i spoke to couldnt help me and kept telling me that the phone WONT BE AVAILABLE TIL IT REACHES 12 AM PACIFIC TIME!!! I called right back and got the manager from a different office and he told me I was the first computer order to go through…. I am on the roll!!!!

    Use your 10 digit mobile number… But that will not become active untill they ship the order out.

  25. sk3owner Says:

    I called from the West Coast at 8:59 and the Rep didn’t care.
    Also I accessed the site to order it also, but the site was acting up, so the rep did it for me.

  30. sidekick3r Says:

  39. danman Says:
