    I am an Evo fan and I am just sick of waiting for my phone. So I spend my time surfing the web, I really like the Epic 4G and I am thinking about getting one since I am so sick of waiting, I know I just repeated that but that is how just irritated I am. Anyway.

    Here

    Anyway, I may go with the Epic but I wanna wait for my Development for it. :cool:

    called my store to get a price match and that is only for new contracts. That sucks but oh well I guess. Not that far from the original price

    Thatz where I got mine from, but as Droidone says, its that price for new customers which is only $20 less than what they're charging; no waiting for a $100 rebate as sprint is of course $349 in store & of course u hav to buy a case so u'll spend around $400+...

    Thanks for clarifying. There goes trying to get them to match...LOL.

    For new customers, seems like Amazon and/or Walmart are the best bet right now at $199.

    From what the rep told me locally, it is not just online but only for new customers. She told me since I upgraded she couldn't match it. She probably would have said online only if that was the case. I would call ahead of time though. No sense in riding there to be let down

    if i'm getting a family plan with 2 phones, do both of those count as new lines. if so I might get one at radio shack and then add a line at best buy if it will be cheaper.

    You guys are insane if you let a cellphone rep tell you they won't give you the same price on an upgrade as you would on a new contract. Does that not sound insane to you? Call Sprint & tell them you were going to renew/upgrade but their prices don't match whatever 3rd party vendor you were going to go to's prices are if you are a new customer, so now you'd like to disconnect. It's not that hard to get the sprint reps to give you discounts once you threaten to disconnect all together.

    ??? I didn't think Amazon did upgrades. I thought it was new customers only .
