I just check t-mobile's website, it costs $149 after all the promotions. That looks reasonal for a smartphone. But there are better deals out there - some online retailers actually offer the phone for free plus $50 rebate. I wish this phone is available on the CDMA networks! If you already purchased the Dash, how much did it cost? Did you switch from another carrier, why? If not, how long have you been with T-Mobile?
