Why are so many people getting the EVO unsubsidized?

Why are so many people getting the EVO off-contract? It's more expensive, and you can only use it on sprints network anyways, so why bother?

or is there something i'm missing, from what I can tell all I have to do is go to BB, pre-order and pay $50 and get the gift card, then go get my phone on the 4th and pay $150 + the gift card.....right?

What you are probably missing is that we are all already ON contract. Most of us, being Android fans, probably bought the Hero in October. 7-8 months later, the Evo comes out, well we are already on contract. You know what I mean?

Oh so your not elegible to upgrade, I haven't used my upgrade discount yet so I can get it for $200 even though i'm in contract right now.

My upgrade isn't until October so instead of wasting that on a measly $75 off I am buying at full price.

you can't just re-up for another 2 years and get it at the new activation price?

Unlike the other carriers, with sprint you can re-up every year if your a premier member, and it doesn't stack. When i get my evo it just extends my contract date 2 years from that date, so instead of my contract being up 6/2011 it will be up 6/2012

Another reason is the people on employee/partner plans. We don't get upgrades due to our pricing.
