Call T-Mobile Business Direct at 866.464.8662. Push 3. Tell them you want the Dash promotion associated with promo code: Windows Mobile. That's all they need to hear. They will ask if you are an existing customer. If yes tell them you want to add a line (9.99 for additional family line). If not existing customer add new line with minimum plan of $39.95 to qualify for $50 rebate or $29.95 for no rebate. Promo price is $49 without rebate free with rebate. Only 1 year contract required. They also waive activation fee and provide free shipping.

The promo is associated with Microsoft Employees, Family and Friends hence the code Windows Mobile. I work for Microsoft and consider all of FW as my friends. .(direct tmobile CSR here for proof)

you cannot do an upgrade or contract extension to get this price. you must either add a new line or add a line to your family plan.

thanks hofo for the verbatim cut N paste

rebate $50

the best part about this deal is it's a 1yr contract, which is hard to come by at this price. It's possible to get the dash for $49 w/ 2 yr contract via other means

Anyone with the phone want to comment?

hey op..aren't you the one that everyone got mad at in the infocus projector thread?
that was kinda funny.

any discount on mda ??

EDIT: never mind.. mda is for $200 after $50 rebate (requires data plan of $29.99)

Any idea of an expiration on this deal?
I'm currently stuck on whether I should signup for another 2 years with Cingular, and I like the Dash a lot more than Nokia E62 or Cingular 8125. Hopefully a couple months...

CSR said promo ends Jan 1

Can you add the line and then remove it later? I don't need a third line, but I want the phone.

thanks OP!

Great News! You are eligible to receive corporate benefits when you activate new service through this T-Mobile Premiere site or by calling 1-866-464-8662 and identifying yourself as a Microsoft employee, family, or friend.
i see that the discounted price of the DASH is not yet updated on their site, so calling them is the way to go.

Perfect timing and a 1-yr contract to boot! Thanks OP!

green for this sentence:

" I work for Microsoft and consider all of FW as my friends."

is this accessing the internet without paying the Tmobile Web/Tmobile Total Internet?

correct.

Wonderful attitude towards FW community. Appreciate that OP.

i just signed a two year for a nokia 6133 for $49.99

If I add family plan on can i just share my current plan minutes or do I have to sign up for the family plan rates?

anyone know if you can get a myfaves plan?

HA HA HA I had to laugh when I read that! Hot deal. Let's see.. $10 x 12 months = $120 + $100 AR for the phone = $220 in total if added as an additional line on a family plan. For me, if I were to renew on my current FT plan it would be $200 AR *and* a 2-year contract renewal or $380 with no contract.

Hmm.. Very very tempting!

RapaciousEbayer said: tzones plan workaround, Make sure you follow these directions step-by-step:
This is a HUGE YMMV!!!! Free WAP is still only available in _very_ few areas... almost such that it's better to say there is no free WAP (on Howardforums, people ask about "free WAP" about once a month).

wap workaround is nice, but max file transfer size in most markets is around 900kb. not very good if you really want to use the device's potential. just an fyi

at least you can use the wifi at your home network, correct?

thanks op!

Notice it includes windows media, can this thing be used as an mp3 player

correct.
so can I just pay the 9.99 to add a line, and then have free internet?

Said in the link" Upgrade to a Windows Mobile powered smartphone and add data services
E-mail your upgrade request to seattleenterprise@T-Mobile.com with the subject line “Upgrade Microsoft”
"
I am a current tmo customer. Can I add data service and get a promo price with rebate? I know data is not subjected to contract binding. it is just month by month basis.

no. you have to pay $5.99 for the tzones. tzones is like internet crippled. by using the workaround, you should be able to surf the web regularly, instead of only accessing sites through tmobile's "portal", which only let's you surf sites they want you to surf..

the workaround is so you don't have to pay the $29.99 for the internet access.

ymmv.

The Dash is considered by many as the Q killer, this is a sweet price. Go for it people/ The only complaint I have is the processor speed.

does tzones cover anywhere where I take my phone? and... is there any way I could hook this bad boy up to my laptop to get "tzones" internet?

I've been looking for 20 minutes, made 3 accounts, and nothing is working there... is there any phone wiz that could help me please.

Looks like the unlimited internet plan is no longer $30. Minimum for full internet is now $50. Still a hot deal if you need to be connected reliably 24/7.

As I am already in a tmo family plan $59.99,
Can I upgrade both existing lines to this handset without adding new lines and extend my current contract another year?

as stated in the OP, you cannot upgrade. you must add a new line.

I only have a single line. So do I need to change it to family plan and add a new line?

so $100 buck for the DASH...how much is it for the MDA or SDA...

taar44 said: Looks like the unlimited internet plan is no longer $30. Minimum for full internet is now $50. Still a hot deal if you need to be connected reliably 24/7.
Unlimited internet with a voice plan is $30
Unlimited internet without a voice plan is $50

Let me just say, if you are on the fence about this smartphone, JUMP ON THIS NOW! I just bought it on Monday: signed a 2yr. extension (got a great, cheap plan, so no real plans to change anyhow), paid $250 on top of that (they said $200 i.e. $50 rebate, is for new activation only), and have absolutely no regrets.

I am upgrading from an SDA i just got around 2 months ago; again, great phone as well (love HTC), but really wanted a full QWERTY, but don't like the idea of the touch screen, flipout madness of the MDA. As a side note, I ended up getting rid of the sda + a 1gb mini sd for just a few less than the cost of the DASH. WORTH EVERY PENNY. 802.11 b/G compared to SDA; Full Bluetooth 2.0 vs. 1.1/2 (kind of). I've been using this old laptop less and less this week...

The point is, for the price, i'd GO NOW!

agreed. Pics do NOT do this phone justice. You have to hold it in your hand to really understand why it's so perfect. It feels like it was made to sit in your hand; they did everything right with this. The back is rubberized so it won't slip out of your hand. There is already a hack to turn the volume touch buttons into a scroll wheel, and to turn off xt9.
