    Hey guys,

    So I've already gotten my hands on an Evo--yay for eBay. Thing is, I'm eligible for new customer pricing and a sales consultant told me I'd have to use it once I get a new plan. Seeing as how I already have an Evo, what phone should I get in order to resell? Should I just get another Evo and resell that? Thanks guys! Haha, p.s. the Evo is awesome! :)

    The Evo will be the hottest but only if the person buying is not eligible for an upgrade or the phone sells out.

    I don't see why you can't get another evo, I would think that would fetch more then any of Sprint's current line-up. The going rate might go down however, once the Evo is available to the market, but it shouldn't be a crash in prices.

    Haha. Awesome. I'd be happy if I could resell the Evo for at least $350. :)

    If Sprint is selling it at $450 retail, you should be able to sell it for $425. Being that it would be new in box and have no taxes, that should make it sell fast.

    Not sure what you paid for your EVO, but you might end up with a pretty good net price if you buy another one @$200 and then resell on ebay. If possible, I would suggest you buy from a non-Sprint store, so you can get the rebate instantly. If you have a Sam's club in your area, check with them first as they seem to have some pretty good deals (25% off bill in some cases). Other than Sam's, you could do Best Buy or Radio Shack. All of them give you the instant rebate.

    Awesome. I have to buy it at my local Sprint store though--I've already gotten them to offer me a lot of perks and I've told them I'd be in first thing on Friday to port my number over to my Google I/O phone (paid $360 after BCB). Nearest Sam's club is like 30 mins. =(

    I'll have to think about it. I'd definitely sell it to you for $400 + shipping.

    Yep. I still have to send in the rebate though. Not sure what that entails, but I think I might have to cut out the UPC code on the box--had to send in the UPC when I had a MIR w/ AT&T, so I assume it's the same w/ Sprint.

    Well just let me know and I guess we can figure it out. That gives me a week to think about it too. I don't know how the rebate works with sprint but I don't think they need the actual upc anymore but I may be wrong. It's been a long time since I bought a phone direct from sprint. If something changes let me know and I will do the same.

    If you don't put that phone on your new line for 30 days, your mir will be declined.

    One of the employees at my local Sprint store told me I had to use my $150 when I sign the new contract, otherwise I would lose it. She also told me not to worry too much about the rebate--if they denied me, she wanted me to talk to her to ensure that I would get my money. I hope she didn't just say all of that in order to get me to open a new line with her.

    I've been doing some research and noticing the prices on ebay are coming down dramatically. I saw about 10 auctions won around 400.00. I think I will take my chances with that. I know about 2 weeks after the phone drops that the prices will be around $350.00-$375.00 or less. The retail is 450.00 so ebay will always be cheaper by 10-20%.

    Great news! Haha. I actually went ahead and sold the Google I/O Evo I got. I figured trying to resell the subsidized Evo was not worth the MIR hassle.

    Good luck!
