    Amazon has preorders for $499 for retail price. Wirefly has retail listed at $599. Does anyone know how much Sprint will charge for retail?

    According to the sprint website, I believe it's $499.99.

    i'm about to pre-order from amazon. was gonna go into Sprint tomorrow but screw that. i'll have it sent right to my doorstep and won't have to pay tax. imo best way to go if you're paying full retail. 1 day shipping for extra 4 bucks

    it's most likely an estimate. regardless, i'll wait 2 weeks to save 40 bucks and guarantee i have one by that point.

    Amazon is up to $519.99. From what I'm reading the $100 MIR from sprint may also apply to people buying it at full price. Strongly considered getting it from Amazon since I'd be saving money on sales tax but with this new MIR info, sprint.com might just be the ticket.

    eh if i keep it then i'll sell the Evo and make at least $500 back with all the accessories i bought for this phone.

    glad i got in at $499 on Amazon before they hiked it up!

    I plan on buying it full retail, anyone think it will come down to 400-450 within 2 months of the release date?

    They never drop the retail price at sprint. Check out the web site. Those prices always stay the same. It sucks when you are not due for an upgrade but your phone is jacked.

    So I was on my way to a soccer game tonight and had my phone in my cup holder. My wife took a drink of my powerade and set it down by the cup holder. Little did I know that she had not screwed the cap on all the way. Needless to say, my Hero was soaking in powerade lol. So I'm probably looking for a new phone.

    Anyone got any idea what the price is for a new phone without the upgrade? If I sign a new 2 year contract even though I'm not up for an upgrade, will that help at all?

    Thanks
