I was all set to upgrade until I saw this BS. My decision is not yet final, but for now I am holding my hand. I am going to wait until this is out for a minute, and see what people are saying about the unit and the network. I will also be hoping Sprint will drop some of these BS add on charges before to long. I know a lot of people are not happy about it if FACEBOOK is taken into account. I would say 3 people on the entire forum are saying who cares about the extra 10-20.
I of course have not talked to Sprint yet. They actually run a lot of discount's for different things. There is a referral discount, a credit union discount or three, a student discount, and several others as well. So when I figure out exactly how much it is all going to cost I will make my end decision. Lol, not to mention I qualify for 3 of there discounts as well as being a new subscriber if I do sign on with them, and if you leave Verizon or At&t I understand they have special discounts for that as well (an extra 100 from what I am hearing)!
If I lived in a 4G city I would cancel my internet subscription and just get the mobile hotspot feature for this phone.
Any idea how much it is going to cost off-contract, unlocked?
