I picked mine up today, totally by pure coincidence! It's $199.99 with a two year agreement, with a $50.00 rebate. And of course, no FRAKKING data cable. So I need to go back tomorrow and exchange my stereo headset for the data package.

Funny how the BlackJack totally sucks & they are blowing them out for $74.99.

Thanks! I see that Cingular also has the phone on their website now. So how's the voice quality on your new phone during calls? And is the keyboard really that bad as some reviews say it is?

It's bummer that they don't include a data cable.

It's a bummer, but not a surprise.

The voice quality is AWESOME! This is and I am not trying to be a Samsung FanBoy, the greatest cell phone I have ever had. Battery life is AWESOME (very, very rare for a CDMA/WCDMA phone) and the keyboard is surprisingly good. When I would look down expecting to see a "error" due to my slight mis touch on the keypad which would ALWAYS happen on the BlackJack, it hasn't happened yet here!

Also, an update on the iPhone as far as AT&T Wireless is concerned. All managers got an e-mail today saying they will be audited for all iPhone sales and that if there is/was/ever a list, to destroy all copies and that its "First Come, First Served" at 0900HRS on the 29th.

Thanks for the info!

Unfortunately, my local at&t store didn't have any. I'll keep trying.
