Would like to know is there any better price off contract than Sprint, Sprint listed at 499.99.
I just got one off eBay for a friend for $496 shipped brand new plus you get eBay bucks 2% back. No deals out there when not renewing a contract since that's where they can afford to give you the deal. Plus sprint.com charges a $36 activation fee now plus almost $50 in taxes. No thanks. I went to the checkout page and it showed a $36 activation may be applied. Not sure if it would for sure be charged or not since your paying full retail for the phone but the one on eBay has a clean ESN so will be a standard ESN swap no fee for that. Just be careful buying on eBay buy from someone with decent feedback. A lot of the lower ones are scam auctions which you are covered under paypal but it's just a hassle to deal with.
If you wait a few months prices will drop but usually the latest phone off contract not 2 many deals to go around.
Oh yea if you don't wanna risk eBay go with AmazonWirless. They have it for $529 off contract free 2 day shipping no tax most places. I actually had it on pre-order there but they won't have it in stock for at least a week so I canceled the order. Not sure about the activation fee but most of the big online stores were higher than amazon. So almost $90 cheaper on eBay plus 2% back vs going to Sprint and paying full retail.
