I would say in between 500-600. Probably towards the upper end of that range.

Why does everyone always say that? Not trying to be mean, but the EVO is only 449.99 on their site at full price, but I dont think it has to do with HTC only. The Incredible was 529.99 so maybe the carrier has a say in it as well.

There is no doubt the carrier has a say in it. HTC does not sell phones to the general public atleast not here in the US. So the carriers are free to kind of price it as they see fit.

You said that the EVO is 529.00 do you know why you said that? When I go to Sprint it is only 449.99, I am just wondering why a lot of people are saying higher prices.
