was just checking you best buy for the new galaxy nexus that will be on sprint soon( for my girl and her triumph return to android after a two month iphone 4s detour)
and got a chuckle on how a electronics store prices year old phones

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.
Sprint CDM-120 -> LG 225 (Red) -> LG Rumor -> LG Rumor 2 -> Palm Pre -> HTC Evo 4G -> Samsung Epic 4G -> Nexus S 4G -> Galaxy Nexus

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
.


If you like my work, give me a quick "thanks"

And if you realllly like my work, I enjoy coffee

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.
