What will you be getting? I am still going with the Epic and got it on preorder.
I'm still going with the Epic, but I will be looking to purchase through one of the third party vendors. I want to avoid the $100 rebate waiting game since this is going to cost me an additional $50. In the end I guess the $50 really makes little difference to me since I am porting my number from Verizon. I'm looking forward to the lower monthly cost of ownership after being raped for the past 6 years.
Still getting it but I'm waiting for a deal and I may possibly buy it off contract
Hell at this point I've been waiting fir this phone for so long I just want to buy it and be done with it.
Still getting the Epic. The extra $50 doesn't bother me nearly as much as some people who've posted about it.
I'm on the fence. $250 is more than I was expecting. I think I am staying with my current phone and hoping for a job promotion or the price to go down.
How about an undecided option? I'm still going to wait for the reviews.
still getting it. price doesnt phase me at all. its gonna be well worth it.
Yes I forgot to put it in there...so we can say "staying with my current phone" can be the undecided option.
I will be going Epic. Why should $50 deter me?
I am still getting the Epic in a couple of months, I want to see the support they give on this phone, also want to see if the GPS works as I read other Samsung Galaxy S have GPS issues and they have not been addressed. so will give it a little time first to see.
They are actually being addressed as I type this.
Samsung has already announced they are working on the issue, and to expect a fix sometime next month.
Which means what? Absolutely nothing.
But in the meantime, they are releasing a defective phone, and anyone vocal about them releasing a defective phone- well, we already know you can't maturely handle those who would say the phones are defective.
Welcome to the world of being wrong and making excuses. I called this.
A new carrier?
Seriously. Sprint is gouging at $249.99. Not to mention the $69.99 plan requirement + $10 4G charge.
4G is unimpressive. We have it. I've speed tested it in a store. Yawn.
I'm considering an EVO but good luck getting one.
My contract isn't up until October. If I could switch carriers today I probably would bail to Verizon. If I can get my hands on an EVO or Epic for $199 I might stay though Verizon service is cheaper (I get a 15% discount).
It means buy our phone now. Trust us we'll fix it later. Fix it real good. Really.
how did verizon rape you? i was considering switching over to verizon from t-mobile, please do tell of your experience.
Pre-ordered at Best Buy on Saturday!
Explain. If your sole argument is "every other cool phone is selling at 199.99", save it.
Good luck paying anything under $100/month for equivalent verizon service.
I will be purchasing the Epic at full price.
ROFL, there is no way EQUIVALENT Verizon service is cheaper with a 15% discount! You are a LIAR! Don't give me the "450 min, no texts, $30 for data plan either." You must have unlimited texts, unlimited data and basically unlimited voice (so i will give you the first tier voice plan that includes any 5 numbers on a single line even though it's not near as good as anymobile anytime).
Calculate that plan with a 15% discount and you will be above the $69.99 EPRP plan on Sprint that INCLUDES the $10/mo 4G charge.
Ignorant consumers that just want to bash a company....whatcha gonna do with em??
Hey, people aren't being ignorant. They all just have different needs. Look at what sprint offers, tons of features, Free GPS, free sprint TV, unlimited mobile to mobile, etc. However if you rarely talk on your phone, verizon's 450 min plan is essentially the same as sprint's. I can say with 100% honesty, based on my own personal needs from a phone provider, that an individual sprint plan is $87/month before taxes (69.99 + 4g fee + $7 TEP plan) and verizon on a single plan would be $60 (unlimited txting and 450 mins phone) + $30 unlimited data + $7 full protection plan $90/month. However since I am in NJ where a vast majority of people have verizon, including my sister, if I get verizon I can go on a family plan, which would allow the monthly costs to be exactly the same on verizon as sprint. both would be $80/month for service plus $7 protection plans. Yes there are differences in the plans, and yes everyone has different needs and situations. However as far as I am concerned, sprint and verizon cost the same. AT&T is the expensive one with poor coverage, and Tmobile just isn't an option due to crappy phones and the fact that they don't even exist in the state I go to college in.
I will say that the comparisons I seem some people on these forums make trying to compare plans is ridiculous, how they put a $10 gps fee on at&t but not verizon, especially when it is pointless because android doesn't even require you to pay for those silly carrier gps plans when they have google navigation. However just because it is cheaper for you, doesn't mean it is cheaper for everyone. I think we all just need to stop saying our opinions on carrier pricing, because it is all just a big waste of time.
Unless i'm missing something, 60+30+7=97, not 90. But your points are well taken. Because people's needs are different they should say THIS particular carrier is best for me BECAUSE i only need such and such. But when people make blanket statements such as, "Verizon is just as cheap as Sprint" they are being deceitful and not presenting a clear picture of the situation.
I could care less, Sprint will save me and my wife money and we will be able to make video calls Plus when we add kids to the lines and they want "cool data phones" we will only pay $15 each for them instead of $10 +$30 for each of them.
I'm still anxiously awaiting the arrival of my Epic. I'm currently on AT&T on a low tier family plan. My wife and I both have iPhones. It STILL comes out to close to $100 a line. When I went and test drove the Droid X for a day my estimated bill was $100 a month. That's with VERY minimal talk time.
On Sprint I'll be getting 25% off a month PLUS the initial cost of the plan is lower. Pretty easy decision for me. Now if I could just get my wife off he iCrack
Yeah... Video Calls... *wink**wink*
Lol, just messin with yah.
