    Says it's for NEW 2 yr deals, but sometimes they do extensions as well. I hope so because I just bought one 2 weeks ago. Worth a phone call!

    Thanks

    According to the XDA forums it will work with an upgrade. Might have to purchase it through the BB website to avoid the hassle and confusion

    I was at the Best Buy store yesterday and saw the deal. The ad, at the store, clearly says for new and existing single and family lines. I also asked a rep at the store to confirm that it's not an error. She said that it's not. I'll be getting this phone today from them =D

    Just got a refund from Best Buy. Took my receipt to the customer service counter, said that I saw the phone for $100 less, and asked if I could get the difference back. She refunded the $100 no questions asked.

    My original purchase was an upgrade, not a new contract.

    Do you know how long this offer is available because my contract is up 9/1?

    I think their deals run 1 week at a time, Sunday through Saturday.

    Just got off the phone with Best Buy and upgrading from Sprint Pre - to Photon...

    The rep's understanding is that the $99 deal may only be for TODAY, as the ad seems to not be correctly entered into the system, but YMMV...

    I wouldn't hesitate, as $99 is a great deal for a recent phone and $179.99 seems to be the lowest upgrade price elsewhere.

    Good luck!

    Like Bone said, most of their deals run a week, but they frequently maintain several offers for multiple weeks. So, who knows.... This is not a one-day deal. I saw it yesterday, and bought the phone today for $99. If the deal does run into next week, you'll def. ant to buy it before Saturday ends, since their deals start again on Sundays.

    Just picked mine up yesterday. It was about $200 out the door with the future proofing. Smoking deal! Still getting used to the phone, but so far it seems really good. I came from a rooted Evo running evodeck 1.3b.

    I went into Best Buy today with my receipt, went to customer service, said "I bought this photon on July 31st for $200, and now it is $99, can I get a credit" and gave them the receipt.
    No arguments, no questions other than "how do you like that phone" and BAM $106 credit back on my card.

    Did the same at lunch. So at the end of the day, it cost me a buck less than the thieves from Asurion (or however you spell it) wanted for a refurb Evo to replace mine that rebooted multiple times daily.

    BB told me I was on day 14 of ownership and that was their time limit for price matches on cell phones.

    Long story short......a better phone than my beloved Evo and a SCREAMING deal.

    Gotta love it!

    I'm a webOS convert just picked up the Photon from BBM on a 2 year extension for $99. Heck of a deal.

    I've had enough fun with the epic (it sucks) so i'm gonna give this phone a shot despite hearing some of the problems it's having....can't be worse than my epic. 99 bucks is too good to pass up!

    Same here. I got my photon from BestBuy yesterday for $99 + 2 year extension... and the $10/mo smartphone tax. I deactivated my ... just realized that by deactivating my Pre2, I'm kinda stuck, since I can't activate a sprint comms board in a Pre2. Well I guess I'll cross that bridge if I get to the 30 day mark and decide I don't like the photon.

    They just went on back order from Best Buy. I found (1) at a local store [only 2 stores out of 15 in the area have any left in stock].

    Do you have a receipt or any information that can help. The store says no its only for new activation.

    Go to bestbuy.com & order one as an upgrade, but don't check out. It should come up @ $99. Then print that & take it to your local best buy. They should price match that.
