That's only for new contracts, and individual line upgrades. Family accounts get screwed at $149 (Focus at least). Cheaper to go through AT&T or Costco.
I bought 2 Focuses on this promotion. Can't beat the deal if you are switching or need a new contract. Amazon Wireless did a decent job, too (though they did mess up the number transfer for 1 of my phones - AT&T fixed it in a snap).When I did it, though...they said the promotion was going to end on 12/30...
I bought my Focus through Amazon Wireless and was very happy with the service, and 1 cent sure beat the $200 my local AT&T shop wanted for the phone. I found Amazon Wireless's support to be very good. They've responded to my emails within one day. There seemed to be a problem porting my phone numbers over from Sprint to AT&T, but I was able to call Amazon and they resolved the issue with AT&T in several minutes.
WTH? Not available in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, yet apparently everywhere else? Guess I'll have to order using the address of a not so distant relative or friend. Ridiculous.
