Totally agree TS. I've been waiting for the release information from Sprint on the N3, and just don't get the price premium against other carriers.
First off, where I'm at (Honolulu, HI) they haven't rolled out LTE yet, so unlimited data is fairly irrelevant considering I'm always using WIFI to download stuff.
Second, I'm done with my 2 year agreement, so why would you put me in a position where the competition is actually "more" attractive than staying with Sprint?
Just doesn't make sense, if anything I'm in your boat where it actually makes me kind of irritated that I'm being treated this way. I let it go when they got rid of my gold status (10+ years with Sprint), I let it go when they jumped ship from WIMAX to LTE (effectively taking away my 4G service in Hawaii). But now you just want to charge me a higher price on a new device.... just because? Doesn't make sense, and is rather insulting.
