    $130.00 after rebate my ass i went to upgrade my phone to the instinct and was told that i didn’t qualify for any discounts because im only a 1yr 8m into my contract but i could get $75.00 off the retail price of the instinct $449.99 so my cost would be $374.99 and start a new 2yr contract then i was told that i didnt qualify for the mail in rebate either
    cheaper then the iPhone yeah right
    ill just want four more months when my contract is up and the real deal “iPHONE”

    I am with you man, sprint is going to sink to number 4514324234 with their tactics of trailing edge. They should have come with Visual Mail before the iPhone. Keep trailing number 3.
