I know I thought it was pretty cool! He has till like June of 2013 but they said once it gets closer to June it may go down 20 bucks or so that he has to just call back and see. But he has to call ahead of time tell them he wants to do it and they bill it to your account I think they told me. That way when the phone comes out it will show an upgrade is due. Cause we always buy from Sprint and they would bill the phone to your account which they don't do anymore but were saving 50 bucks from Best Buy for joining some phone freedom thing. So I'm going there Monday to preorder for us both.
