    Hey guys! I pre-ordered through EVPdiscount.com and they JUST sent me my UPS tracking number along with Sprint order number. GUESS WHAT!?

    South San Francisco, CA, United States 09/15/2011 6:39 A.M. Out For Delivery


    WOO HOO!!

    Here was EVP's email to me early this morning:

    "Cary,

    Congrats!!! Your order is on it's way!

    Enjoy your new phone….you're one of the first to get it, let me know what you think of it so I can pass your advice along to others.

    Please use myself and the EVP as your ‘one-point-of-contact’ for all of your Sprint needs…this will make it much easier for you and is the best way to ensure all discounts remains applied. If you have co-workers, friends or family interested in Sprint plans, feel free to send them my info to review their account for free to ensure they are taken care of as well.

    -Andrew

    Carrier:
    UNITED PARCEL SERVICE

    Definitely a good chance if Sprint is shipping earlier than the 16th! Finally!!!

    I wasn't eligible for my 1 yr premier upgrade yet, so I only got $75 off. With $12 overnight shipping, and I assume some sort of activation fee - my next bill will probably have an extra $175 tacked on to it. Not a big deal though, I seriously upgrade my phone every year when the next big thing comes out LOL

    Like I said in another thread...wow this phone will be my favorite for a whole 10 months! (next is probably the Prime). My younger brother gets all my "old" hand me downs :) Lucky him

    If you only got $75 off..... How is is that you think your bill will only have $175 added on? With the full price of this phone being in the $500 area... It seems you will be charged over $400.

    Am I missing something?

    Yeah you were right...guess I didn't look at the receipt. It came out to 324 after my company discount and the $75 upgrade thingy. Anyways, I'll start posting pics and taking questions

    First Impressions

    1. First thing I noticed taking it out of the box: WOW. It is extremely light. I don't think any review stressed how light it really is.

    2. It is absolutely sleek and gorgeous. It's pretty obvious now why it sold millions world-wide. It doesn't feel "cheap" - definitely more "solid" than my epic - but it's probably because it has no sliding keyboard

    3. The camera lens in front along with the light sensor and proximity sensor are easier to see than the Epic.

    Unfortunately yes it does. It doesn't really touch the inner lens area as there is an oval plastic surrounding the lens and flash, but it's close:

    :( Definitely get a case if you hate this as much as I do.

    I just plugged in my spare Epic battery and it works. Most likely won't last as long as the 1800 mAh battery it came with but oh well. It works as a spare.

    What do you want to know? Every video review has covered the general stuff. Let me know if there's something you want me to check

    This equation still doesn't make sense. The full price of this phone is supposed to be $500. If you were only able to get a $75 discount.... That should have Been approximately $425 billed to your account. How is it $324?

    I'm not sure. It's not even a full receipt - I'll wait for the bill and let you know.

    UPDATE: I called EVP and they sent me an updated PDF. You're right it's 424.99 LOL

    Apologies for the previous posts about the costs. Like I said - i dont pay attention to it much. Also I really didn't pay for it. Vegas did LOL:

    I'm excited for ALL of you! You will not be disappointed. Definitely pick up the MHL adapter from monoprice and a case if you haven't already done so. Is there anything I can answer for you?
