    I agree, I never understood how US companies got away with this silly rebate schemes...
    I haven't seen any such system in other countries...

    The last rebate I sent in was from ATT for $30 to cover the cost of their DSL modem. I never got the rebate. I called ATT and they said they don't handle the rebate there, you need to call XXX-XXX-XXXX. I called them and left messages and never got my rebate.
    It appears to happen with Sprint quite a bit too:

    Sprint is not a company with a sterling rebate track record. The Gizmodo article is right - probably 1/2 of the rebates won't be fulfilled regardless of the submission rate.

    No biggie.
    What's a "stamp"? Oh wait, I remember now, Pony Express and all that. Can't recall when I last used one. Wonder what they cost these days.

    Rebates are dishonest, but Sprint is no worse than any other company which uses them.

    Isn't this thread over with? It's been established that if you don't want to deal with the MIR buy it at Best Buy or RadioShack.
