Way to go Sprint!


Android Expert
Just switched from Tmob to Sprint today, sort of. I took my wife down to Best Buy with me to see if they had a demo version of the EVO (they didn't), but she liked the Hero.

So I went to the Sprint store, they waved the $35 activation fee and took her cell phone off my hands for $65. They said I'd still qualify to get the EVO as a new customer all I have to do is create a second line (I'm approved for 5 lines).

About the EVO, he was talking like they were only to be getting about 6 phones on release day....does that sound right? Anyway I told him I'm not worried about that as I was number two to preorder at Best Buy.

Oh and I get a 15% discount off my service. The strange part is the guy just asked me who I worked for (I could have said anything) to get a credit off my monthly bill.

When we left the store her line had already been transferred!

Last thing....the Hero came with 2.1 installed. Much better than my G1.

Each Sprint store should get more than 6 phones. Probably more like 20. I know 2 guys who work at 2 different Sprint stores and they have said that much.
