Its not really a surprise that Cingular stores don't have the Cingular 2125 in stock yet, most managers don't even know what it is, makes sense since the device was officially released just this week. Of all the managers we talked to, for the most part they simply couldn't get past the fact that the 2125 is Cingular branded, they believe all phones have to be a Nokia or Motorola. Here is a phone that makes Symbian Series 60 devices look like technology from the 80's. We got our hands on a Cingular 2125, and we are reviewing the hell out of it!

Ordering is painful - When it comes to ordering a Cingular 2125, until they are in stock at your local store you are much better off ordering online or by calling Cingular. If you are willing to accept a 2 year contract, it can be ordered online for $299, if you want a 1 year contract, it will cost you $369, and you will have to call to order, or buy it from your local Cingular store. If you already have a contract and wish to simply buy the phone, it will cost $399, and it will be SIM locked, which means you cannot use the phone with other wireless carriers like T-Mobile, or European carriers like Orange, O2 or Vodafone. With a one or two year contract, for release there is a $100 rebate if you purchase an unlimited data service with your plan. The pain of ordering is due to the fact that not a single Cingular employee knew what the device was, I even had a store manager tell me there is no such device, and there wont be any Cingular only devices. Its a good thing we didn't listen to that jerk.
