Update: Since I apparently missed the original posting of this while I was gone, let this post just serve a reminder because prior to posting the above image, I had tried to capture the 7/12 pre-order date with phones shipping 7/15 for those of you who still wanted to take advantage of the gift card. I don’t know why T-Mobile is allowing retail employees to know of a 7/15 release date but not retailers themselves, unless there are concerns over inventory ala HD2 issues.
Radio Shack is allowing pre-orders on the Samsung Vibrant that includes a $50 gift card for qualified new and upgrading customers. For just $199.99 the phone can be yours with shipping starting on July 21st. While that’s just a few more days after the moved up T-Mobile release date of July 15th, the $50 dollar gift card hopefully will entice some of you to take advantage of this offer. You must order by July 18th to qualify for this offer so act fast and order now!
