That's more than what I bought my GSM version for when it first released.

It's the same thing on the Sprint site. If you go to the phone section, the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S 4G are both the same price. Not 699 but they are the same prices.

Its ridiculous how much they want to charge for "retail" prices. You can find close to brand new nexus s's all over the internet for around $200. No way I'd pay $700 dollars for this phone right now.

Btw, diggin the minecraft icon in your taskbar

Try calling Sprint and speaking to Account Services. My upgrade wasn't until November but I was able to pay them $75 and get my upgrade reset.
