You didn't but others were claiming that they deliberately mislead customers, failed to return calls, gave erroneous numbers of phones expected to arrive...

Yeah, just about anyone other than Best Buy at this point people should try.
Yea, competition is good. Competition drives innovation. But let's not kid yourselves here people. Anyone who has kept up with current economic news knows that this holiday, the largest factor will be price. So, hoot and holler all you want but you know that you'll be in a Best Buy if the price is right. Unless, of course, you are part of the 1%.......
And Target, and Amazon, and Fry's, and Staples, and Sears.
People still go to Sears? Every time I pass through there from the mall parking lot to the upper floors, half the lights in the gardening and electronics departments at my local Sears are off. I got curious and asked a sales associate once and he said that they do it to save power because no one really shops in those departments there.
On a side note, tis the season for Halloween because Bagman is giving out kudos like CANDY! Cracks me up every time I see a post where anyone saying anything negative about Best Buy gets kudos from him. I click on a post and I see kudos everywhere and I already know who has been there. Freakin hilarious.

If Price is a concern of mine, I will not shop in Best Buy. I can get better stuff at Micro Center and it is cheaper. Here's another Tidbit of information: Apparently it is untrue that Apple Forces shops to sell their stuff for the same price. If you go to Walmart's site and look for the 16 GB Iphone 4s you will see what I am talking about. They are selling it for $188 with a 2 year contract. The difference between Walmart and Best Buy when it comes to prices and merchandise is that Walmart is by far in more areas around the World than Best Buy and so has a lot more clout when it comes to negociations with Vendors.
