AT&T selling BlackBerry Torch 9810 and 9860 for 1 cent next week, along with other handsets
Ther BlackBerry Torch 9810 has a 3.2 inch display with resolution of 480 x 640 and is powered by a single-core 1.2GHz processor with 768MB of RAM aboard. There is 8GB of storage out of the box, which can be expanded to as much as 40GB using a microSD card. A 5MP camera on back captures videos at 720p. BlackBerry 7 OS is installed which means a faster second-gen WebKit browser and liquid graphics are on the device. The BlackBerry Torch 9810 features that portrait sliding form factor which reveals a physical QWERTY keyboard.
The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is an all-touch phone that is equipped with the largest screen on a BlackBerry handset, 3.7 inches, at WVGA resolution. The same single-core 1.2GHz processor seen on the Torch 9810 is aboard along with the same 768MB of RAM. 4GB of native storage is on the unit and can be expanded to 36GB using a microSDcard. A 5MP camera on back takes 720p video and BlackBerry 7 OS is running the show.
AT&T will also have all Windows 7 and selected Android models available for the 1 cent price on Saturday, November 26th, with a signed two-year contract. On Sunday, besides the BlackBerry Torch 9860 being priced at 1 cent with the signed contract, the HTC Inspire 4G in red will be $29.99 with the signed pact. Finally, on Monday, besides the 1 cent price for the BlackBerry Torch 9810, you can pick up the Motorola ATRIX 4G, Samsung Infuse 4G, HTC Inspire 4G and the LG Thrill 4G for just 1 cent. Of course, you will need to lock yourself up for 2 years.

Depends what state you are in - most states charge taxes based upon price purchased at - not CA, NV, LA, or NY - I believe.....someone check that.

Not sure about the other states. But I know CA charges tax based on the full retail price. Like you said though, most states charge tax based on the purchase price.

most taxes are on purchase price. california is run by a bunch of big government lunatics that think they have the right to every penny u make.
12. _SavioR_ (Posts: 19; Member since: 30 Oct 2011)
No taxes were I'm from. I've bought so many things off line and I have never been taxed. Now.... I gotta go find a penny. :)

Well not true. Bec i bought a ps3 online using gamefly. And shipped it to my oregon state address. The ps3 was 150.00 , but i paid the tax subject to the full retail price of 299.00

Oregon doesn't have taxes, buddy. We're safe! :)
Man, a Focus S for one cent? This is great. Thanks PA. I was about to get it Saturday for $200, but I can wait another week. That $200 can go towards a Xbox360 :)

so.. your going to pay nearly double a month to get a free phone on contract? you do know that Tmobile is having a huge sale on saturday. phones are free or nearly free after rebate (the SGS2 and Amaze are 50 bux) and u can get unlimited everything for 60 for one phone or 100 for 2 phones.

(Lowers head).Yeah premature celebration and excitement.I went and checked out ATT plans and realized that they separate everything and I'm not $85 plus a month for cell phone use and I'm not spending an arm and a leg for the Focus or Titan. So looks like I'm going back to the Radar. However, for the T-Mobile sale is doesn't make sense to me. It says I pay $50 and then have to pay 20 payments of $15 for the Radar?! I just bought it last week for $170 w/ a $50 mail in rebate so I don't understand how this is a deal.
17. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
no no.. there is a 1 day only sale tomorrow (sat). Basically they are droping the prices of the phones on the value plan to next to nothing.
I mentioned the SGS2 because its nearly 520 (220 down+ monthly installments). Tomorrow it will be ONLY 200 period, and have a 150 rebate.. so the total price all said and done will be 50 bux.. and still on the super cheap value plan.
Dont quote me on the radar, but i believe it will be 150 with a 100 or 150 rebate. If i remember correctly its free after rebate on the value plan.. but at worst its 50 bux.
ALL SMARTPHONES are on sale tomorrow. the most expencive ones are 50 bux after rebate. On the value plan which is $60 for unlimited everything.

Well thanks for clearing that up cause one ad I saw said you put $50 down and then pay 20 monthly installments of ___ on top of your regular bill depending on what phone you got. That\'s the only \"sale\" I saw.

Damn SGS is down to $50 already? I thought it was selling well...

Just when I had decided to dump AT&T for the umpteenth time....
I am truly pumped for the Windows Phones on AT&T on Saturday. (Sorry, remixfa- no T-Mobile in my 'Burb.) My wife was leaning to the Vivid, but for about 149.99$ less theTitan (which is set to be released on Sunday just in time for this sale) will be just fine. I will get to choose between the S and the Titan. I was also kinda digging the Atrix 2 for the price. And of course we both were choosing devices to dump AT&T and head to Verizon. But, I will trust on my preference for WP and just hope for the ESPN radio App to maket it to the Windows Marketplace in the next two years along with the few other apps I will miss.
Sorry Verizon- looks like you do not get to cash my checks just yet.

By the way, Alan F., why no shortcuts to the Focus S, Focus Flash, or the HDH7S under "related devices"? Some new readers may actually want to look up the WP devices on sale to get the skinny on them as well as the Blackberries and Androids on sale. I am not sayin, I am just sayin....

I got mine for free last Christmas because I never upgrade through AT&T. Do people think that's their only option?
