    Yesterday I had our monthly meeting at my best buy mobile and or att district rep came in. she gave us some papers about the new " 4g" phones and while I was talking to her, she stated a few things:

    1. The atrix will be released first at best buy before the other stores (radioshack, corporate stores)

    2. The laptop dock will be around 150 dollars.

    3. The atrix is coming out before the samsung and htc 4g phones announced at ces on att.
    And its sooner than we think here

    So hopefully she's not bs'ing us (she's usually pretty good about information). The good news is she said att demo lines have unlimited data so I'm set!

    FORGOT TO MENTION! She also said no price change in 4g yet, when lte rolls out that can change though

    I've read on AndroidForums.com, that the Atrix might be shipping on Feb. 13. Did the AT&T rep mention anything about the release date. Also, I think the laptop dock is a fair price. Any other pricing points for the mutlimedia, car docks as well?

    I actually asked about the laptop only. She said real soon. Once she said we can get unlimited data my whole store was like "where do we sign up". Lol


    Hopefully that date holds true though that you heard

    I can see the device being released to best buy before other stores, but the corporate store? I doubt that.

    hmm well the 30 a month would only be beneficial to those on AT&T network......damn. Guess if AT&T won't honor my grandfathered in unlimited plan, then I'll either move networks, suck it up and deal with the 2GB, or apply to best buy LOL

    Will Best Buy offer a pre-sale prior to release date so we can reserve one to get on release day?

    Now are they saying that grandfathered unlimited data will not be permitted, or are you only talking about the employees of BB mobile? On one hand it sounded like she said only employees could get the unlimited $30/month, but what about customers who have the grandfathered plan? Will they be permitted to carry that over?

    I was just talking about employees...

    I'm sure they'd still grandfather you in though.

    I don't know about when lte comes out though

    That's kind of what I was thinking as well, seeing as they didn't force the i4 upgrades to change. Hopefully they will...I'm really wanting this phone!

    Well, seeing as how Verizon will charge different rates for LTE, it's only inevitable that everyone else does it too.....

    Time to just pick a phone I want and suck it up with whichever carrier it is attached to, since they all are gonna be the same anyways.
