Ok, I just got back from the Totem lake C-usa. The same Hardware manager allowed me to buy another one. I could not see his name but he is wearing the same type C-usa white "polo" shirt with black trim, Has a "sony" logo on his left front.
I talked with him a brief moment and now I seriously take back my earlier comment about just knowing what the box looks like....
HE REALLY IS A NICE GUY! Real pleasant to deal with, Wow! C-usa could benefit with more folks like this guy! He seems to pretty much know about the i-Opener mods (He says he has one himself!)
He did tell me that these are being discontinued and a new version is coming and will be selling for $399.99.
He said the isp requirement has been withdrawn (temporarily?) and the store presently is filling the pre-paid and special back orders.
He said there are now 2 left that are not allocated to anyone, available to whoever wants them (He's only selling one per customer per day).......
Better hurry up, Go to the corporate sales desk!
betcha the 2 will be gone by this afternoon!
He also said that those folks who ordered (Not the pre-pay's) and do not pick them up in a week or so they will be released for regular walk in sales, There are about 14 being held total (Pre-pays and special orders).
A call to the 1-800 c-usa # the person says the i-Opener has been discontinued!
