If anybody is think about getting this phone but the $99 price is holding you back Let's Talk has it for free. This includes upgrades. Cell Phones from wireless carriers Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, BlackBerry

That's what I've been waiting for :) I haven't "paid" for a cell phone for myself in maybe 8 years (makes paying $300 for my wife's iPhone much more tolerable). Never had a problem being a couple months behind the curve. Besides, my upgrade path never really lined up with the new device roll-outs.
Edit: Just pulled the trigger. I have multiple lines, their site didn't seem to ask which line wanted upgraded. I hope this doesn't become a problem, though their retail and customer service ratings are in the 9/10 range.

Either way, I planned all along to "upgrade" a secondary line and then once I got the phone call Sprint and have it switched to my primary line. I've done this before at both a Sprint B&M and a Best Buy, so hopefully there will be no issue.
Also, LetsTalk says most orders are approved and shipped same day as long as the order is placed before 2pm Central. I placed my order a couple of hours ago but the status is still "Carrier Approval." Anyone have any experience regarding this? If you can't tell, I'm very anxious to get my new phone and almost shelled out the $150 at Sprint B&M for instant gratification!

Question for Jonathan, do they ship it already activated to the number you requested to upgrade, can I just slap it on my other line, or will I have to put it on the line I upgraded, then swap phones around? I almost always order from my local BB (who don't even HAVE this phone in their system yet!), once or twice ordering from the local Sprint store, Never ordered a cell phone in this way before.

They ship it activated on the number you upgraded. When you get the phone all you are suppose to do is shut off the old phone and turn on the new phone and it will be activated. So I guess you will first have to activate it on the line you upgraded than do a switch. I have only ever upgraded the line eligible, never done a switch.

The only thing I can think of is that they aren't eligible for the upgrade.

hmm whats odd is that it even asked for my phone number during the process, and it did the check.. and I found this on my work browser, went through the process, canceled and did it at home on a different PC.. I guess we will see what happens. I did call and ask. ( using Chrome on both machines )

hmm okay, went and checked again and now its showing the 79.99, but my order is processed at the .01... guess I need to call Amazon.. it went through the whole check of my number, I was selected on existing account and everything.
I forsee a fight with Amazon coming up.. and damn it, I was stoked to get this for a penny...

Yeah that's what I was told, was that the phone was on back ordered when I called about it asking for what plan details I needed/wanted ( forgot they re-up your plan with renewals.) Delivery estimate on my order is for the 21st of this month.. ouch :/
