    I am getting this phone as my 2 year upgrade. I am probably going to order it online due to the cost savings over buying locally. I am just not sure which company I will get more actual savings from. I have read so many posts about different coupon codes, free overnight shipping, waived activation fees, etc. that now I'm all confused. So here are my specific questions:

    1. Do both companies waive the activation fees?
    2. Do either of them charge sales tax?
    3. Do both offer free overnight shipping, or just letstalk?
    4. Are there any currently working coupon codes for either company? The ones I have read about on this forum are expired now.
    If any of you know the answer any of these questions, I would appreciate your help!

    You might want to check the postings in the LetsTalk thread before you decide that their deals are the best:

    http://androidforums.com/samsung-epic-4g-touch/411617-just-ordered-through-letstalk-com-2.html

    You will see how these great deals progressed through the release date.

    I can give you my experience with Wirefly. I ordered the phone early. Wirefly let it be known that they might be able to release the phones earlier than the release date. It turned out they were wrong. I had asked to have my phone sent out early, and they sent an email to me to tell me that Sprint would not allow it. To apologize, they upgraded my shipment to next day. In the end, Wirefly did ship the phones out a day early and I got my phone on the release day.

    As you will read, many LetTalk buyers are still waiting for their phones.

    As an echo to what Unplugged said above, I would not recommend purchasing anything from letstalk.com. I am one of the people still waiting, after ordering my phone on 9/11/11, for them to get stock and ship them. People that ordered from wirefly already got theirs (for the most part).

    It looks like letstalk is going to ship on the 21st now. Wirefly is supposed to ship on the 20th. If their bottom lines are similar, I would definitely go with wirefly - but to save a lot of money I would wait the extra time with letstalk.

    Did wirefly waive your activation fee?

    Stay away from LetsTalk.

    I preordered on the 10th - Now backordered after getting carrier approval.

    I cancelled my order
