That's interesting ... I just spent 25 minutes with a CSR and she told me I would get a call back "in a couple of weeks" to schedule an 811 install because "they are in high demand and we have pre-order for you." So I asked how long after the pre-order could I expect an install an she indicated 6-8 weeks!!!
I was prompted to call about an 811 when I saw Scott Greczkowski's post about the most recent Retailer Chat where he indicated that they were now in stock and by the $49 lease option (which turns out to be for new customers only). I'm more than willing to pay the $149, but I have no idea when I will ever get it.
