If you're afraid of Black Friday shopping nightmares, T-Mobile is the carrier for you. They've dubbed the Saturday before Black Friday as "Magenta Saturday". While initially their deals seem not so great, I've decided the pros most definitely out weigh the cons.
Of course the idea of paying full price for a phone is terrifying at first, but if you're honestly that worried about the cost, you'll be more inclined to get your forms in order and send them off to receive your rebate. Then, the prices of the phones are really pretty spectacular. I'm slightly jealous that I don't get a BlackBerry Bold 9900 for $49.99. Another pro? You get to stay away from the crazies that always seem to congregate outside of the big stores. Even better: you don't have to fight the mob of people running towards the electronics section while making sure no one takes the items you've already grabbed. I'm positive that this wins the argument, hands down.
