    until this past quarter, sprint has been bleeding customers to competitors for almost 4 years. the preference to new customers, while annoying to the loyal, is understandable

    Yeah I got screwed over as well.

    My BB curve was stolen 2 weeks ago and I had an upgrade available. I went in to Radio Shack and got another BB because they didn't have the EVO in stock. They told me that when they get one in, I can exchange it for an Evo.

    Yesterday I went hunting and I found 2 Radio Shacks that had one in stock. Both places refused to sell it to me for the upgrade price and said that I had to be a new Sprint activation.

    What gives??! I was told by a couple other locations to contact the district manager and that they weren't technically allowed to refuse me so I called and left a message yesterday.

    This is bull because I know that people have gotten the phone with upgrade before.

    I just finished the upgrade at Radio Shack - in fact I had my name on a list and they called me two days ago. In San Diego it seems the phones have finally started trickling in as I got a call from a second Shack yesterday.

    I work at Radioshack and i can tell you that they are not allowed to do that, all they're doing is simply waiting to get more commission from the phone.
