I ordered it yesterday...no problem, plenty in stock. I called this morning when I got my backorder notice. They had plenty then, but ran out before mine could ship.
OK...so, do you have the white one? "Oh, yes...we do, unless it is also back ordered today...we anticipate a run on them since the black one is out of stock."
LOL. I saw in this forum that someone said five days ago, "When will the white galaxy S2 be available?" Well...just so you know, they are in stock as of 5:30 am this morning according to the TM rep, so you should be getting one.
I've been with TM since 2000. I feel that they have collected enough of my money over the past 12 years to be able to afford an inventory supply program that works on their computer system.
I told the rep I felt I had been lied to. She got kind of indignant with me.
I could pay my 200.00 and cancel my contract...that is what I will do unless it arrives this week. I can get this kind of treatment at AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint.
Loyalty...not a big deal any more.
I will update as I hear from them.
Go to a local T-Mobile store and see if the manager will sell you one out of their inventory. While they are not obligated too, they are generally good about helping customers and of course the big company (611). You and customer service have to work out the logistics of canceling your backordered phone without penalty.
When I got my S2 (white and my husbands (Titanium) they "had plenty in stock". I called for the Presidents Day sale, the next morning I got backorder emails for both. 2 Days later they shipped and were at my door the following day. The backorder waiting wasn't bad, and since they were free I didn't complain.
Two phones are on the way. The black and the white. Hmmm. Now to get one returned...
I ordered mine from BestBuy and got it delievered ASAP!!
On that same day Feb 27, I went to a Tmobile store that is close to my house. I said i want to get the galaxy S2, they said out of stock but can take my order and ship it to my house . I said how about that other Tmobile store in the shopping mall? He said no, there is a "nationwide shortage" of Galaxy S2. I didnt believe him.
Drove 20 minutes to the mall, that Tmobile store has it in stock. I said I want to keep same plan, I said I dont need to buy extra warranty. She added the $3.99 a month to my bill for the handset warranty/insurance.
I get home check my account, had to call Tmobile to delete that $3.99 a month charge.
