Blackberry 7100g – More Delays


Seems like many people are having issues ordering the Blackberry 7100g from Cingular. The latest smartphone from RIM was available for order on February the 14th but now has been pulled off their website and ordering system. Here is Matt on his ordeal on trying to order his own Blackberry 7100g.

Last week I received an ad in my email from Cingular that the 7100g is avilable via their National Businss Accounts. On 2/21 I called that office and, after being on hold for an hour and disconnected twice, I was told that the 7100g is “not on their ordering system”, despite the ad being sent out.

Then I went to my local Cingular store and the manager said that it was indeed taken off their system. He speculated that they just ran out in the one week that it was available. He expected that it would be available again soon but didn’t have any idea as to when.

Has anyone else had such an experience? Has anyone successfully purchased one of these via Cingular?
