    Bundles are a classic way to move accessories with big releases. I'll be doing them at my shack!!

    Best Buy is giving out free bluetooth headsets to counter RS's $20 deal.

    Dangit. I was the first on the BB list and I passed up the earliest time slots to get some sleep. The 4th is my B-Day and I know I will be out the night before "celebrating". I will be driving to Vegas after I pick up my phone for some more "celebrating" so I thought I should get as much rest as I can. I may rethink this and call them back...

    I will call BB and ask if they are offering the same bundles deal and try to find out more details. I will report back if I get anything out of them.

    Yeah, that sucks the BB in Palm Desert, CA isn't even doing the free BT headset, not that it matters my BlueAnt Q1 just arrived. But I could go for a case or something equally as good. Must just be the stores with bigger populations and a large number of pre-orders.

    I just left the BB in my area and they did not mention any type of bundles or specials for the 4! Guess I should have asked but didn't think about it. Also tried to get them to show me the mock EVO and girl said they could not show anything before that day

    The one I preordered at is opening at 8 AM, and giving away the headset. That's about as special as it gets with them!

    Yeah, I hate that store, but it is the only real electronic store out there.

    I just called two Best Buys. The one I am going to pick up the Evo on the 4th said there are no promos or bundles besides bundles they are selling for at a discount. She said something about a car charger, screen protector case combo. Sounded like she was in a hurry and was assuming things before going to verify with the Mobile dept...

    Then the BB by my house, where I am picking up from on the 7th for my 3rd line, said they are giving away a BT earpiece but it is for "first come first serve". She did say that she will try and hold one though, which I appreciated because I was the first to pre-order. The sale person said they were installing Zagg screen protectors for $8 and she even called me back to tell me about the Black Tie protection plan.


    Normally I get better customer service in CA over NM but not this time...

    Unfortunately that's the truth, and having no competition they can do what they want.

    After my experience with how the Zagg products turned brown from absorbing the skin oils I'll never put a screen protector on my phone. Don't really use a case since I'm a pocket carrier and the BlueAnt Q1 headset is phenomenal, so no need for a $20 Plantronics.

    Yeah, I hate that store, but it is the only real electronic store out there.
