Phone is on sale for 279.99 through 8/18/12 in most Radio Shack stores. Only $20, But every dollar counts. I believe the Virgin Mobile Online site sale will be ending soon, So this is something to keep in mind.. Furthermore, You should also have no problem getting this price matched through Best Buy. http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13053515 Anyways, Just passing along the deal. Larzuk.
