    SWAC lets you upgrade once a year.

    Not sure because it doesnt really matter. If they move the date back to Oct 1 I will get the Nexus or Photon on the 28th....then just exchange it for the Epic Touch when employees can buy it. Hopefully they dont push out employee availabilty further than 14 days...... I just want that $125 port in credit. Thats like 2 free months of service.

    I was gunna say you are screwed if they push the date back further than 14 days..... I wonder if i'm allowed to do that??? it would give me a few extra days past the 2nd of october then i wouldn't have to be in the new 18 month contract......

    I should know for sure in the next few days what the date will be....

    For you...Are you eligible right now for an upgrade? Not quite sure I follow what you are trying to do?

    Also just called the Sprint store that is on the Sprint HQ Campus and they said Sept 25 (Sun) looks like it will stand as of right now because neither the store or our district has sold many of the phones....

    I hope you are right about Sunday. I have to order mine through the online store and hopefully they have stock there as well.

    ok i'll explain my situation again. its a little complicated. So i was eligible for an upgrade on august 14th but i've been looking at the epic for like 2 months. I don't know if you know this but come october 2nd any employees who upgrade to a new phone will have to wait 20 months until they are able to get a new phone. If i get a phone before then i only have to wait a year. does that clear up what i'm trying to do?

    Yes thats what he said...SWAC/employees... all the same. As already stated there was a chance it could move back but no one had given them an alternate date and that the 25th was still it. You'd think they would know first with being on the Sprint HQ Campus.

    Feel free...just put in zip code of 66251 (Sprint campus has their own zip code its so big) in the store locator to get the number. Then hit 1 for English and 3 for an associate.

    I just talked to a rep there and he wouldn't give me a date but said it shouldn't be too much longer. He thinks it will be available before the 2nd of oct. He also gave me his email address to he would keep checking on when it would be available. He also said a samsung rep came into the store to see how it was selling and because it was the sprint store at the HQ they haven't sold hardly any and the samsung rep was going to look into getting it to the employees... so yea i hope its coming soon.

    That is good to hear. Shoot in 20 months who knows what the super phone will hold or be called for that matter.

    Ya I agree. The guy I talked today was saying November December but I dont see that happening as the EVO 3D was only a few weeks behind the launch for everyone else

    It's fu*king bullsh*t. Obviously sprint doesn't care about their employees..... now i don't know what phone i'm going to get.... Nexus, evo 3d, photon..... don't really care for either of those.....

    I had the 3D for a month and took it back I did not like it at all. The speaker on it sucked and the 3D part was a dumb gimmick. I am going to give it a week and then prolly go with the Photon.

    I would get the nexus but havent heard very good things about like I have with the Photon. It is really frustrating waiting for this. If they would just tell me the date I would be fine.
