Where to buy Atrix?
I'm getting my Atrix the on March 27, the day my upgrade is available. Where I live I have four options of where to buy my phone. They are ATT corporate store, Walmart, Radio Shack, and Costco. My question is where would be the best place to purchase. I know that Costco is the cheapest at $120 for a two year contract renewal.
The reason I ask is I want to know who here has purchased at any of these locations and what was your experience? When I mean experience is have you had an issue with the device and for whatever reason had to take it back. Did they give you any hassle? Is there a difference buying from a Corporate store?
If any issues arise within my thirty days, do I have to go back to where I bought it to get help or can I walk in to any ATT store?
Price is a factor but dont want to sacrifice for poor service. Can't remember what the other prices where but they where all either a little cheaper or a lot cheaper (Costco) than going to a corporate store ($199). Also if anyone knows where I can get it for a good price by all means..
Sorry for the noob questions but I just want to make sure if my device is faulty I wont have a bad experience. Maybe its just me but it will be my first Android device coming from Blackberry. Thanks in advance ." In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. " Albert Einstein.

Buy it at wherever it is the cheapest...I believe if ur device is defective anywere u buy it should replace it with no problem. I too came from a blackberry device with unlimited data...and they let me keep my unlimited data too! So that's a plus. Don't be such a pessimist that you'll end up with a lemon! im sure you'll be fine... ...so to answer ur question...I think u should go for costco for their low price !

I'd just get AT&T to price match it. In fact, you should be able to go into a store and see if they can do it now for you. Bring in the flyer from the cheapest one and have them call to make sure it's in stock. I got my price match on release day. Then again, it was one of my good friends, but he normally does those.

Costco has a great return policy, also, they only charge you sales tax on the price discounted by a 2 year contract...
So new contract (not upgrade) price is $199, you're taxed the $199 price. Other places will tax you at the non-contract price of the phone $499.
For some reason, even if you're upgrading, the tax is based on the new service price - still, tax on $199 is better than tax on $499.
But again, costco will take anything they sell back.
