Still that doesn't explain why they aren't price matching on off contract phones but they do on everything else. "I don't want to" isn't really a good excuse.
Well considering this is a Sprint exclusive phone, they probably have the flexability to sell it cheaper outright, unlike BB or Radioshack since they're resellers and have to pay a certain $ amount for each phone.
But like all phones, wait and see what happens the next couple of months. If the 4GLTE isn't selling that well they'll probably lower the price, especially come Fall when all the carriers unveil their new phones for the holiday season.
