    Went to pay my Sprint bill today, and was greeted by this:

    Save $150 on a new phone now!
    We love you, and to say thanks for spending time with us, you qualified on 06/01/10 to save $150.

    I JUST upgraded to my Hero back in March. Looks like my son will get that as a hand-me-down, and I'm movin' on up to the Evo.

    Ever hear of such a thing? :D

    No luck here.

    Is it possible that you have more than 1 line with Sprint and that the other line is the eligible one?
     
  4. It's an every 10 month thing with sprint premier. Apparently anyone that has a data plan for more than 3 months is now a premier member, all of you are probably eligible, just haven't looked into it. Call customer service.

    P.S. I'm still mad that my 11 years with sprint means absolutely nothing now.

    I'm surprised that more of the carries don't offer customers with loyalty with 5+ years a special discount or upgrade eligibility.

    Read the EVO forums before you upgrade, from what I have read many are not too happy, so be informed before making the move and adding an extra $10 a month for service!!

    It's just $10.. lol

    I'm gladly gonna get myself an EVO when my upgrade is available in October (or the newest and most awesome Sprint smartphone available) and I will be more than happy to pay that $10 fee.

    Stopped at a random Best Buy in Columbus, OH last night on my way back to DFW, got an Evo. So much for the considered opinions. Rooted it, installed wireless tether, bing-bang-boom, off and running.

    I frickin' love this thing. It's like 2 Heroes on steroids. Fast. Big screen makes up for a multitude of sins.

    If I were to whine about anything, it's the lack of a trackball and having to press the power button to wake it up. That's it.

    I feel bad for my Hero, but it'll get a good home with my son. :)

    Gonna be a pain in the ass when your screen peels off and you've gotta fly back to Ohio to go to that same Best Buy for a replacement lol.

    I'll just jump in the private jet and go. :rolleyes:

    Never had a problem with Sprint honoring 30-day service, regardless of the purchase point. Been a customer since 1994, and they actually take pretty good care of me. Might explain the mystery upgrade.

    I have 5 lines, and no. This was specific to my primary number.

    Oh really, I was always told to return it to the original place of purchase for any problems...

    No line is specific on Sprint. If just 1 line was eligible it takes Sprint/BB nothing to switch the eligibility to the number of the phone ur in the store with. Most times they won't even say, hey it's a phone sale for them why would they.

    Just checked my online account and I have the same deal on my primary line. $150 off a new phone. We just upgraded and signed a new 2 year deal back in January and it says we were eligible in February for the $150 off. This is not the same as the Sprint premier early upgrade deal. With the $150 off I could upgrade my wifes phone to the HERO for $279 or wait the 10 months and use our premier upgrade and get the HERO for $79 (or the EVO for $199).
