Because retentions won't be able to give me the deal if it isn't with an activation, unfortunately.
Like I called and asked if I could do the deal before hand and then just pick up the phone and they said that it is impossible because the deal I am getting is dependent on having a new activation (I'm getting a deal beyond the standard retentions deal.) I agree that it would be much easier if I could do it before hand, but unfortunately I cannot (the deal with cost $15 more a month if I were to get it without a 2 year contract, and they are unable to adjust it after the fact).
But so Bestbuy will be able to do this just as much as Rogers Plus can?
today's the day.
good luck to everyone. may you all get the device your looking for.
Preordered a Black XL 128G on Oct 11, ship to store option.
Now in position #41, status: open.
Anyone have a guess as to when new stock might arrive? I've seen people that have ordered later with shipping estimates into November IIRC. I sure as heck don't want to have to wait that long.
