    Isn't the usual T-Mobile (VoiceStream) trial period just 72 hours?

    Dan - yes normal VS policy is 72 business hours. If you buy via Amazon, 30 days. And in Cali it is 14 days. Don't know if that is b/c of Cali. law, or a change in VS/T-M policy. We'll see.

    kindaichi - activation fees are generally nonrefundable, but the carriers might waive that anyway to get you to sign up. Don't know exactly how VS charges for SIM cards (if they do at all???) b/c I bought my phone three months before launch so I paid full price [​IMG] You would be responsible for any calls you make - prorated I think would be reasonable, but you'd have to double-check that witha VS rep.

    Hopefully its a change in T-Mobile policy and when they roll out that name it will be 14 days nationwide. 72 hours just isn't enough.

    I just came back from talking to Tmobile people at the mall and they say 72 hours. Before you buy, besure to ask about the return policy because some of the smaller stores don't give any return policy at all!

    Reseller's often have different return periods then the main stores. They're usually a lot less lower so I will agree with you its best to ask. I know around here Cingular's is 15 days but with most of the reseller's its just 72 hours.

    so if you buy it online, and it's only 72 hours, how the hell are you suppose to be able to get out of the contract??
    72 hours of the time of ordering / activation. suppose i order sunday, they activate monday and ship monday. ship to my address, this takes what, 2-3 days the fastest with usps. but these people probably ship fedex/ups, if this is ground, it takes longer than 3 days. either way, you're screwed if there's no signal in your area.

    if you cancel, do you get to keep the phone or what since the 3390 is free

    No when you cancel, you return everything and the phone has to have NO imperfections in it. If you get it scratched you can't return it or you have to buy the phone at NON activation charges which makes the phone prices up to 300 dollars.

    If you buy phones online I think amazon gives you 30 days but don't quote me on that

    hi, i just got that samsung q105 from this local wireless shop. the tryout period is 14 days and you only pay for the activation fee and sim card which comes out to about $60 dollars and you pay for whatever you use.

    I went to a T-mobile store today in Brea. The sales associate said it was a 14-day trial period for the phone & for the service itself.

    Hilary,

    I'm not sure where you should have posted it - are you talking about the logo above my name? If so, here is its address:

    http://wirelessadvisor.com/waforums/i/authorsicons/logo_tmobile.gif

    If you go into your profile, you might be able to put that into the "Upload your own author icon" at the bottom, or I can save it and email it to you so you can save it to your PC. Then you'd go to that same section of your profile, click browse, and then upload it.
