Yeah, that Curve. currently has the BlackBerry 8300 listed for $49 out the door, with no messy mail in rebates to deal with. This is a darn good deal for one of the most desired, and competent devices on the market, and should serve a small consolation prize to our faithful readers who weren’t lucky enough to snag one in our recent contest. Keep in mind, however, that the price includes a $250 conditional equipment discount. If you break the terms of service within 181 days you will be subject to the $250 Amazon charge in addition to any AT&T ETF’s. The good news? AT&T corporate stores can usually be persuaded to match Amazon’s online pricing if you happen to be signing up for a new line of service. Just remember to ask nicely.
