    My store doesn't honor online prices and doesn't have the Titan in stock, so I'm double screwed.
    Why not order online then? Also... most stores don't honor online 3rd party retailers, but a majority of them that I know match it if it's on AT&T's website.

    I am going to order online. Sight unseen and who knows what delivery date, which is what sucks.

    I'm so getting one tomorrow for a penny. Was gonna go to the store, but the store I prefer is in a super busy shopping area, so gonna do it online. They did say they'd honor their online prices, but not for third parties, only AT&T.

    That store's full of crap. Any reputable corporate-owned AT&T store should most def match what they have online. It all comes from the same place!

    Here's my advice to everyone. When you go to a store, talk to the manager first hand. If they're not available, then wait (or come back). Because usually the lower tiered workers have no freakin clue about anything & will just say whatever pops into their head without even checking.

    I went to my store today & I happened to luck out & have the district manger come up to me to see if I needed any help. Not only is he honoring the penny sale in store (he acted like I was crazy for even asking BTW), he's also HOLDING a Titan for me until I get paid next week (I have to pay my overdue bill before the system would let me upgrade). He put a note right on it to honor the sale at the time of purchase. :)

    Its either they're clueless or they're trying to make some commission. I don't think managers make their money off commission.

    I went to AT&T today too, manager told me he can match whatever deals the ATT website offers, but not Amazon's. They 1c deals with AT&T are mainly older or refurb phones - not the focus S, Titan, SGS 2, etc...

    I just ordered a 1c titan for me and 1c Focus S for my wife. She didn't like the bigger screen and loved the lighter weight plastic Focus S. I personally love the heavier, solid feel of the Titan along with the bigger screen.

    Both of us are coming from blackberry/android phones, so a bit nervous about a new OS. I was THIS close to pullin gthe trigger on the SGS skyrocket but decided on giving WP a try. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

    wow lol,so if that really is the case then all of us waiting for the titan 1c deal are gonna be soo dissapointed. Only a few hours left, lets just wait and see. Honestly though, having worked at a retail store myself, sometimes even the managers have no clue.

    There's no middle man... no sales rep that sells it to you. It gets shipped right from the factory. So it isn't BS that online store have better deals, often. You also get to play and interact with the devices in store which also have to be maintained.

    The managers usually have no clue more than the reps. Lol. I was a manager at AT&T and I was pretty much the go-to manager for other managers. A lot of them didn't like asking the reps or they'd feel stupid or that they didn't know as much. It was pretty funny and also annoying at one point. They would send a lot of questions my way.

    P.S. I worked in a call center. Over 500+ reps, so that was a lot of questions

    I just called three local stores and they all say they won't match the site. In fact most of the reps seem annoyed but I'm guessing they've had several calls about the sale. It's not a huge problem as long as I can still get the deal. I just hate waiting for stuff to come in the mail.

    Yeah and I believe the deal (free windows phone) lasts until Sunday. At least that was what I was told on Wednesday.

    Same here. With gas it would be cheaper to pay the $200 bucks.

    I can say with certainty after hanging up the phone with customer service that AT&T placed a credit on my account ten minutes ago for the 199.99 + tax for my HTC Titan I picked up this PAST Sunday. Happy shopping all. (I also verified my account now has a credit balance when looking online). Yea, no bill for December and a new phone!!!!!

    I did the same thing. The first person I spoke with said no so I asked for a supervisor and soon as he came on he offered to credit my account.

    I got my Samsung Focus S the day after it came out. Returned it today to an AT&T store got full credit. Then went to the Microsoft store and got my free titan :). I could have gotten another Focus S, but I like the heavier weight of the Titan, Build Quality and larger screen. Although the colors are richer on the Focus S. It was a tough decision.

    So it's listed on the website for .01 cent as we speak. I thought it was a Black Saturday sale?

    Yeah, threw me off since it was supposedly a Saturday sale and not a Friday sale.

    Anybody know if you sign up through an employer discount program if ATT will honor the sale?

    I followed the process for an upgrade to my existing line and the Titan was a penny. I didn't order it though. I am good until the top end Nokia phones come out in 2012.
