I heard about SO today so I drove to the nearest 7-11 and asked the clerk where the cell phones are. He says to me "that promotion is over". So I asked him what he meant, and he says "we don't sell phones anymore". I walked around the store and couldn't find any...
What's the deal? This was in Brampton.

The clerk is an idiot. (See the official 7-11 SpeakOut website.) Try another 7-11 store.
So I went in to the same store today, and the phones were behind the counter - I asked the clerk (different one from before) for one and bought it with no problems. All they had was the 1280 but that's good enough for me.
So for anyone in a similar situation make sure you look behind the counter and/or come back later when a different clerk is working.
