A colleague of mine had a customer service issue with the phone he paid full pop for. When he threatened to quit and go with someone else the response was something to the effect of: Oh well.

    I don't know about their service and how reliable it is, but everything I've heard/read leads me to believe that their customer service is terrible.

    No clue since I've never needed to deal with it. Just pay my bill every month.

    Let's be honest though, Customer service rarely is a generality. You'll have some bunghole everywhere. I've heard praise and bad experiences from a lot of different people for each of the big companies.

    Best Buy here has the Playbook for $199 16GB, $249 for 32GB and 399 for 64GB.

    They're sold out almost everywhere already. I already have a 64GB IPAD 1 3G otherwise I'd jump on one..... I might still though - I'm impulsive like that.....

    I was out yesterday and saw the 16GB at The Source for $199 as well ($300 off). I wonder if they'll ship to the US:

    $199 is the regular price everywhere until December 31st.

    For those who have one, is it worth it? Is it worth buying if I already have a great laptop?

    I did find one about 30 miles from me, but there are plenty on Ebay. I have a for work Blackberry, so connecting this thing is what's driving me to it. I do believe my BBES admins have locked out bluetooth tethering, which probably negates the BB connect I would think.....

    Way less apps than Apple obviously. If you can live with that, I got used to this very quickly. It's quick, it's simple, it has some nice apps, nice size, cheap, easy to type on. Not sure what more I would need personally. Although, more apps would be fun.

    It's worth it if you have a good data plan on your phone, so you can tether (I have a BB phone with unlimited data so I browse on the playbook anywhere).
    Because if you just want to use it at home, it's pretty weak I think... prob the worst tablet out there.

    Just use WiFi at home, that's what I do. Besides I copy all the data I want on my PB over and watch it that way. Load 'er up and take it to work.
