    I've been waiting for the release of the Black Centro from AT&T but now realize that I won't be able to get it for the $99 price because I won't qualify for the rebate. What are the pros & cons of buying the locked Centro from AT&T or buying the unlocked Centro online from the UK?
    I realize that:
    2 year contract is $199 -locked
    no contract is $349 -locked
    From Expansys $319 -unlocked
    So, besides price, is there any good reason I would want the AT&T tweaked phone over the unlocked GSM version?

    Any errors in tact, fact or spelling
    are entirely due to transmission error

    Buy a black case and stylus. Looks damn good as the black and white contrasts.

    I'd bet on another rebate or price reduction along with the black intro.. Only a matter of patience. I'm anxious for a new toy, but the reality is that my 650 is still working fine or as well as I'm accustomed to.

    I'm with Mark, I'll wait. I have a 680 that is working fine. If I was planning to change carriers I would go unlocked, but I'm not. I'll wait another week or so for the AT&T. I'm sure it won't longer than that. The price is right with or without a data plan $99 > $199 vs $319.

    text message plan also works.. either unlimited.. or if youre on a family plan with other people who use texting.. the 30 dollar unlimited family plan texts (yes you can message any type of message to anyone for $30 total cost for your family.)

    im waiting for that day the black one comes on premier.. just waiting... hopefully its not the date i think it will be released.. i have a feeling it may be released when the first rebate expires..

    One can always unlock later too.
