    I'm at a crossroads here on where is the best place to buy the EVO. Here's what i've discovered after HOURS of research and checking around:

    1) Sprint store
    Pros: 30 day return policy, can probably get exchanges faster if there's a problem. They offer free 1 month's service for extending my contract, ($129.95 in the plus column), loaner phones IF needed, waive activation fees if upgrading
    Cons: Have to pay $299 then apply for rebate, have to wait for the rebate check up to 8 weeks.

    2) Wirefly.com
    Pros: They have a ridiculous low price if you purchase with the Bing cashback promo this weekend where it 'nets' at $109.99, NO rebate to deal with (apparently they do the same thing as BestBuy.
    Cons: Their customer service sucks (hardly spoke English), 14 day return policy, who knows how long a replacement would take to get if the phone had an issue, no 'loaners' if a problem.

    3) BestBuy
    Pros: No rebate hassles and $199 for phone. Willing to waive activation fees, etc.
    Cons: Same problem with returns as WireFly, their sales people are not 'techies' like the Sprint people are

    Anyone have any pros/cons to offer on these? Or, any other experiences with other avenues in purchasing the phones? I've already contacted Sprint directly regarding all my account upgrades and concessions. My original fear is they would not honor those unless I bought the phones directly through them instead of a 3rd party vendor. Turns out they really didn't care where I bought the phones.

    Sprint will wave activation FEE. Just buy it from the Sprint.com and be done with it.
    Plus there is a Sprint.com trick where you can get the phone for $150.00 at check out.

    It was posted here like 2 days ago. Basically order from Sprint.com and right before you hit the final order button hit the cancel order button and you'll get a coupon for $50 off your order.
