It's 70$ with a plan thru Sprint. Sprint would offer unlimited data with no caps and unlimited texting for about 70 or 80 bucks a month.

So my question is(if you've gotten one thru this method)...
How is Sprint?
Is there a catch?

I just got one yesterday matter of fact. Sprint seems great and the fact that they still offer unlimited data is awesome. Switched from AT&T

Im currently on sprint unlimited plan $70 the only thing is they only give you 400min land line and everything else unlimited but I really dont care about land line I dont really call out, so your bill would be $85 every month.

Re: Galaxy Note 2 thru Sprint thru Amazon wireless?
Yeah Ups delivered mine on Tuesday from Amazon. I absolutely love this thing. It was an upgrade from my epic touch so it cost me $199 which is still not bad considering Sprint sells them for $299. Well worth it. It's so awesome compared to what I'm used to in a phone. My e4gt was nice but you just can't compare the two at all really. Been with Sprint for 15 yrs too and no complaints.

The phone is great. Sprint on the other hand, maybe not so much. Sprint is known to be slow. HORRIBLY Slow 3G. If you aren't in a LTE area, I would weight this heavily.

If you have access to a lot of WIFI points where you normally go around, its not bad. Im in NYC. Speeds are horribly slow sometimes. Othertimes, they are manageable. By horribly slow, I mean less than 500kbps. Its more like 1X than 3G.

When you go to network vision areas (upgraded 3G / LTE areas) you do see a speed boost, somewhere around 800 kbps to about 1.3 mbps. Still probably slow or just reaching Verizon 3G speeds.

The only perk is unlimited data no throttling or caps (except roaming).

Keep in mind, Best Buy price matches Amazon. I bought my GN2 with Add a line price from Amazon Wireless. Walked out the same day, I hate to wait.

I agree. In weighing leaving sprint, selling my note 2 and getting the s4 on tmobile. I will give them 2-4 months to improve

Mine will be the note 3 if the size stays the same. If it gets bigger I will get the htc one or s4. I will probably sell my note 2 and get the s4 or hyc one on tmo if lte for Sprint is not in my area yet

For those who have Costco memberships, I believe you get a 23% discount on your sprint bill monthly for the primary line. I work at a hospital that only gives 18% discount, better than nothing.

Link to sprint site to check if you're eligible to receive discounts.
