    That penny sale is for NEW subscribers. Also, I cannot get the unlimited plan in which I am grandfathered to if I buy online at Amazon. I have to click on which plan I get prior on Amazon. I do not want to lose my unlimited plan.
    I have nothing big against AT&T because their network serves me well. And so does their customer service. However, I am totally against their "iPhone is the only way" strategy!! I was an iPhone pioneer and I loved it. But I love the WP7 OS more and their screwing with my mind!!
    I have upgraded my last 3 phones with them and I always got them for a penny. I have been able to keep my unlimited data, by calling ATT before I place the order. They put a note on my account and when I call them to activate the new phone, they revert my plan back to unlimited. Like I said, done it for the last 3 upgrades.

    EDIT: I realize the rules might have changed for this particular penny sale.

    Thanks for the info! At this point, I still have no choice but to wait for the Black Friday sale as it is out of stock everywhere!! Amazon is not doing the penny sale for "upgrades". I will call ATT on Friday and ask about keeping my unlimited data plan. Thank you!

    @wp7pwns errr... I don't think you get my initial post. It's frustrating to know that AT&T is purposely doing this to see if there is demand. And having only two items on stock is just ridiculuous!!

    "Hey, I'm not sure if there will be enough people to buy the new WP7s so let's just stock two items for now even if there are 200K people here in this town!" - AT&T

    And to answer your question earlier whether I was complaining about not having any on stock or not being able to buy one... WTF! I want to buy one but there isn't any on stock because they only shipped two!!!
    Ok, so just to clarify, you were unable to get one when you went in the store itself? I wouldn't just go by what someone on the phone says. I can go into the AT&T store right now and they may something is out of stock then they will go back there and find one. Again it was probably because the amount of people in your area that purchase them was not significant. Also 200,000 people doesn't equate to 200,000 AT&T subscribers, and then only a fraction of that would qualify for an upgrade this week, and then a smaller fraction of that would be in the market for a WP7. But the whole idea that you are going to get your friends to go in there and demand the Titan or have us blow up their twitter page or whatever is not going to somehow magically make Titans appear. I don't even think AT&T would listen to a petition.

    Also, I wouldn't call it then a supply problem, it would be more of how much AT&T may have initially ordered for its stores if anything. If it was a supply problem it would be something that would have affected Europe as well as here, but I would think that instead it was either AT&T only sending out a certain number to each store and guessing which markets would have more of the demand or it was just the initial shipment just to get the device on the shelf and the second one would have more.

    Either way, it's something that is probably temporary. So there is no use getting up in arms about it or calling it "unconstitutional" or blaming AT&T for being Apple worshippers because that doesn't help you in the end. I remember a month ago my local AT&T store running out of GSII's and people went up in arms about that. It's just like chill. Go into the store talk with a rep, order your phone, you will sign the contract right then and there so you keep your unlimited, and your phone will come in the mail. Or call AT&T before you order online and do it that way. I would advise you to just wait 3 more days til Black Friday so you get the 1 cent deal (which I am hearing you have to order online anyways).

    I was unable to find a Titan in las vegas area so I ordered a Titan from ATT.com late sunday night and received it tuesday afternoon. I was pretty happy with the fast shipping.

    Here's to hoping they shipped more than two phones in my area. Tomorrow may get a little crazy. I'm hoping they price match with online prices.

    2 per shipment is the same treatment the focus s got. I asked 3 major area att stores when my phone was a tough sucker to find.

    In Austin, of the 8 ish stores, only 1 store received Titans. They told me it was because they are pulling back on the in-store sale of non LTE devices.

    I can't say how it works for ATT, but I kept my Verizon unlimited plan when I purchased the HTC Trophy through amazon wireless.

    I am starting to think that HTC is having financial trouble. I just read this article: HTC Revises Downward Financial Forecast for Q4 | CENS.com - The Taiwan Economic News

    Also, didn't Apple just win some big law suit against HTC?

    Addendum: I just looked at Reuters and saw this: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/...7AN00S20111125

    this might actually be good for us.... now HTC has to pay MS for droids and Iphone for everything... maybe they will drop Android and concentrate on WP!! :P ( a man can dream )

    as for the shipping problems... i ship cell phones out every day ( 10-15 a day ) many reasons for delay.

    1. back order ( witch i highly doubt )

    2. nothing to do with AT$T but the Postal service they use might have problems ( ive seen that allot )

    3. Fraud prevention team has FROOZEN your order because you may have lost or stolen Credit info ( if you ever reported your stuff lost )

    4.the back office that prosses the order are talking a nap ( this happens allot , you know people slacking off and spending to much time on WPcentral.. LOL ;) )

    5. the REP who sold you the phone forgot to do something in your order witch FROZE it until he fixes the issue ( this happens to me allot when i forget to leave notes in clients account with price of device contract and other info ect... )

    It will be a penny starting tonight at 9pm ending tomorrow night at 9. I called and verified with AT&T and she told me this. It is for ALL new subscribers and current ones eligible for upgrades.

    The hours probably depend on your time zone though. I was told 12-1am it started for EST.

    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'm on mountain time and I'm assuming the lady on the other line was wrong on the time. I'm sure she meant midnight eastern time, so that's 10 o'clock for me! One more hour and we'll find out if she's telling the truth. Otherwise, I will be forced to resort to the Amazon deal.
