I'm curious to exactly how smooth the process is. Do I have to order through Student Rate to get the student discount, or can I buy the phone at a Sprint store and explain to them that I have an account with Student Rate? I think the answer to this question is no, though that makes no sense as Student Rate is ran directly through Sprint's website. Just trying to get some confirmation. I just find it completely ridiculous that the phone is unavailable online through Sprint considering the fact that this phone has been out since June.... I mean, my goodness. I've yet to see the Epic sold out on Sprint's website. Every time they get more Evos in, it seems as if the supply only lasts a few hours.
