    The topic for early upgrade comes up quite a bit.. So, I wanted to share my experience in the event it may help someone. As of 6/1, I was due for an upgrade Sept. 1st; however, I called telesales to see if I could get an early upgrade since my moment is on its last leg. Anywho, the lady on the other end of the line was more than happy to help me, without having to feed her a sob story about my phone dieing or threatening to cancel, and five minutes later the phone call ended. She stated it could take up to 4 hours for the changes to take place; however, 90 minutes later I received two text message stating I was now eligible.

    Amazon wireless has the S for 99.99$ and the Mart has it for 139.99. I went through Amazon, carrier approved the upgrade, charged account and I will have the S in 2 days.. for 100$.. not too shabby..

    So for anyone else looking for the early upgrade.. call telesales! I am not only posting this for the price Amazon and Mart has the phone for sale but I have read numerous posts stating Sprint will only push the upgrade date up 30 days MAX - most stating only 2 weeks..

    Mart is $279 for an upgrade, $139 is for a new 2 yr contract

    I'm in the same boat with the Moment. Lemme know how the Amazonwireless transaction goes.

    I also took advantage of this deal to upgrade from my htc hero, a phone that I was never particularly pleased with. I could of upgraded back in October, but nothing really popped with me. Hopefully this phone will make me love my phone again.
    I already received it, but unfortunately I'm at work so I can't get a hold of it till 9:30ish

    yeah the phone is awesome.. 100$.. sold my moment for 50$ making my wallet only 50$ lighter.. great deal..

    Easiest root so far.. rooted, Rom'd and overclocked to 1.4 (however running 1.2 now) within 20min. Quad scored on 30% battery were 2700 (rom) 3200 (oc 1.2) 3500 (1.4) off the top of my head.. Had to setup google voice to work properly.. disable call screening and text messaging..

    e-mailed amazonwireless in a nice, appropriate, well written e-mail asking if they would still honor the $99 sale since it had to have changed early morning because the same day I saw it cheaper.

    no response...
    great customer service :/

    oh well, i'll keep hanging out. perhaps it will drop in price soon now that the EVO 3D finally got its official pricing and launch date.
