    From everything I have read yes, but you have to bring thing in something from sprint that says 450 on it. I have the email from the release day.

    I read that it has to be an ad from a LOCAL RS or Sprint store. They might fu-fu the Sprint e-mail as a hoax or some work of shoppery. I'm sure it depends on the person you happen to deal with that day.

    well, if you go to a sprint store, you might as well buy it there... for out of contract buyers... sprint is the way to go imo... that is, unless bb or rs decide to match

    Unfortunately they are not taking pre-orders so I'd have to camp out?

    Well, I pre-ordered mine today at RS and the guy told me their full retail price was $450. So I would assume you could just pre-order it at that price from them and your good to go.

    RS does not price match and BB will price match with an ad. I have had BB price match a large retailer like walmart if they could verify on the website also



    also it comes out to a total of 400 instead of 450 if you do this.

    When the phone comes out open a new line. and pay 199.99 for the EVO and get a new phone number well call it (111) 222-2222. Then swap the EVO to your exsistening line well call it (111) 111-1111. and your old phone new line (111) 222-2222. Then two days later call sprint and cancel the line you just opened that has your old phone on it. Sprint will charge 200 bucks. so its a total of 400 bucks and you have yoru new evo on your old number.

    Can someone please send me the e-mail that says that Sprint sells it out of contract for $450? I have a friend who wants to get it, but of course doesn't want to pay $600! Thanks!

    Depends on the manager or employee working, sometimes it gets price matched and some times not, try different people or different stores.

    I'm just avoiding all of that nonsense and getting mine from Sprint.
