Also a forumer (or two) alerted Sprint about this and apparently, they're looking into Mr. Lucas' activity.
David is a personal friend of mine and did absolutely NOTHING unethical or fraudulent. He was giving us a chance to be added to his waiting list to make sure we all have our evo's come launch. He did the same thing for me on the launch of the pre and i had it the night before everyone else did.
Furthermore, David NEVER advertised on here personally. I am a marketing consultant and came up with this campaign for 2 reasons:
1) To offer android forum users in South Florida the chance to reserve their EVO's which many did.
2) To bring David some business in return for the exceptional customer service I have received from him for years.
David NEVER committed nor stated anyone would receive 25% off. If you read my thread closely it said "UP TO 25% OFF." Based on employment and the type of company you work for, David is able to offer you a discount which can be UP TO 25% off if you are eligible.
The port in credit is something that Sprint is offering now to entice users to switch from another carrier. It is a step in the right direction for them by staying aggressive and competitive in the marketplace.
The reason why I removed the original thread is EXACTLY what twospirits stated... I was constantly receiving flak from all the haters.
With that said, those who contacted David and were able to be added on the waiting list, I will see you on the 4th and if I don't see you, enjoy your phones!
As for the haters, you can thank them for ruining it for everyone else on here. Hope this cleared up some of the concerns or questions you had.
