What problems will I have if buying a Phone over the net vrs ....

by Tooling Engineer    Oct 30, 2003, 7:41 PM

Ive found a better deal on purchasing a Ericsson T616 over the net (on-line store for free vrs walking into my local Cingular dealer where it will cost me $100.00 after a rebate).

Anyway, my question is:

Its obvious the "on-line" store is giving the phone away cause they want to get credit for signing you up with their carrier which in this case is Cingular. My current carrier is already Cingular therefore are they or will they still sell me the phone (give it to me as their advertizing says "for free") when............. (now correct me if Im wrong but,), I believe that if this on-line store is in Ohio, and Im in Texas I would have to take this phone in a local Cingular (texas) to get it connected/activated anyway.

Hope you know what Im trying to say and can help me out....

Many Thanks.
