I'm currently in the UK and having bought my S7 at Bestbuy Augusta and then hearing about the price match refund, I wondered if I could get the same from long distance.
I called my fiance and told her the situation, said where my receipt was and asked her to go into BB. She did that yesterday and the clerk processed the refund without problem and returned the $53 in cash.
One very interesting thing is that my fiance asked why they were doing this and she got the answer that they were repositioning the tablet with a network provider to be contract only! That could be something attached to Huawei's position and be a result of their marketing to the networks. Yikes!
This would likely mean that the unlocked SIM free version will be priced higher to push the contract version which would be network discounted and come with a data plan. But it is almost certain to be a 2.2 version and I'd put my money on the announced march update coinciding with the network contract release of may be the capacitive version.
All in all I think we have a out and out bargain and at $250 it's put a big smile on my face. The S7 costs $390 here in the UK!
Many thanks to all who brought the refund to the attention of the forum.
I wonder at the thoughts of those who returned their items?

Well it might be a good thing, especially from a development standpoint (more users). But it might jack the prices up...
