i suggested this phone to my non-tech, first android timer friend, who went to best buy on launch day, 10/10. first one in the door and he said best buy wanted $179.99 for it. he called me from the store, with speaker on (because his old phone can only do speakerphone), to tell me about it. best buy sales person asked him where he got the $149.99 pricing from. i told him, over the speakerphone, that sprint announced it at CTIA along with sanyo zio and lg optimus s. so, he hung up and best buy changed their price for him. i can't believe best buy would try to price gouge customers on a phone such as this.
