So I will be buying this phone cash no upgrade. Where should I go? I see it on sprint for 550 but everywhere else has the non upgrade price higher. I would have thought bb would see it cheaper than sprint.

Do you think any of the sprint stores will even have any on the 18th lol.

I believe I saw you could pre-order it from Sprint with out going on contract.

Pretty much the best place to buy it out right would be from the carrier if you want it new. Everywhere else is pretty much $100+ more out right.

Amazon has it for the same price as sprint, but you'll save the tax.

That would depend on if Amazon has a warehouse or facility in your state. Like Texas I think now has one.

Best places would be eBay if your willing to take a risk, I did and my Droid Razr Maxx was flawless. $450

Amazon.com may have good deals

but if your trying to stay away from the internet. AAFES aka The Exchange, but you have to be in or know someone who is in the military

If you are buying it out right because you are not due for an upgrade for a while keep this in mind, I was going to cancel my contract early then restart with a new 2 year agreement to get the upgrade price and when I told a Sprint rep that that is what I wanted to do, he said that if I pay $45 that it will give me an early upgrade elegibility and so I did it and I preordered the Evo and now wait for tomorrow for the release might wanna see if you can do that instead of payin all that money to get it off contract. This is legit at least in my case, I don't know if it work for everyone but it did for me. Worth a shot!
But keep in mind it will restart your 2 year agreement....your choice!

I am eligible for a upgrade. I just dont want to be on contract. With all the stuff Sprint has been taking away and them rolling out LTE Alot more could change soon.

I have been with them for 14 years and I have put up with there slow data speeds for the unlimited thing. But My GF has t-mobil and her speeds blow sprint away in my area (3g and 4g). On top of that she pays about 30 less then me a month. She only gets 5gb of data but I use wifi a lot and never really go over 3gb... Sooooo It might be worth it to change...

I'm planning on buying as an upgrade, but I missed pre-ordering so I'm going to buy from a physical store hopefully on release day. Anybody know if all sprint stores are going to have the phone available to buy on shelves? Or would it be better to try buying at Best Buy...?

If you buy the phone full price you'll pay 550. If you do a contract, get the phone for 200, cancel the first month and pay 350 etf, you've basically paid the same amount. Might as well go on contract
