Pearl officially released on T-Mobile today

13 Comments

We were there when the news broke, and yes, we’re right here with you as you check the site from outside your local T-Mobile dealer where you’ve been standing since last night at 2 am to ensure you’ll have one of those gorgeous Pearl’s in hand by end of day. We’re slightly jealous, but let us live vicariously through you: let us know how your Pearl adventure goes today, that is if you’re participating in the bru-ha-ha.

    Released? Maybe, but I couldn’t buy one. I just got back from a T-Mobile store in Atlanta and they wouldn’t sell me a Pearl because the “upgrade” price wasn’t in the computer yet. The clerk said she would continue to check the system throughout the day and call me when the new pricing shows up. Looks like T-Mobile might drop the ball on this one.

    Patrick. Seems as though a few people are having issues. Pinstack reports a whole lot of running around with various T-Mobile retailers not carrying the actual product.

    Perhaps you meant that T-Mobile might drop the pearl on this one. We’ll know by the end of the week, I suppose. Thanks for the comment.

    Tmo has had the Pearl up on thier website for a few days, with coming soon. I know it was on there this weekend. It still shows coming soon today. Maybe the date we have is wrong?

    Ah, Melissa – I’m seeing that, too. Fact is, people have been to Tmo stores (most reports come from New York City) and are currently rocking the Pearl. Seems as though majority of Tmo CSR’s are getting confused with pricing, too. We’re smelling the burning, too, trust us – not sure what’s going to happen next.

    I got mine in So Cal and I love it. We had to call six stores to find two that had it. Just call around before you go out to get it.

    It is so much better in real life than in the photos. Just go get one!

    Maggie,

    I’m jealous that you’ve got one in your hands right now. I dropped mine through the patio already.

    I’m kidding!

    But either way, good advice on calling around. Thanks for the note.
