Well I just started a chat with Sprint because I had 1 VERY simple question. I asked since I'm eligible for a 1 year upgrade can I pay 275 at an official Sprint store and have the remaining 100 put on the monthly bill. She asked for my info to see if I was eligible and told me what I was edible for which I had just finished telling her to begin with. Well she tells me I should buy it online that the activation would be free so I was hoping that maybe she could order one for me. So I tell her well I can't because none are available via the website. She says that is correct. "Can I interest you in a htc hero or intercept they are nearly identical and can do almost everything the Evo can do. I told her that the Evo is on a whole other level on a technology stand point and she told em to call customer service. Gee Thanks Kate for wasting 20 minutes of my time. Well does anyone know if doing this at a corporate store is possible? I have the money right now to buy it, but I'd rather pay 275 now and pay the rest at the end of the month.
