Do a plan comparison. You can't really do an apples-to-apples because neither AT&T nor Verizon have unlimited plans, unlike Sprint. But basically, Verizon would cost me $20 MORE per month even though I would get less (450 minutes, unlimited text, and ONLY 2GB data). I should note that I have the EPRP $10 discount, but anyone with access to Google can get it. My plan total before taxes and insurance coverage is $69.99. The Verizon plan I described above is $89.99.

I'm saving $20/month from Sprint over Verizon. That's $480 savings over 2 years. Plus I'm getting 500 minutes, unlimited text, and unlimited data. Even if I didn't have the EPRP discount (although I'm not sure why you would not get it because anyone can get the EPRP discount if you know how to use Google), I would still save $240 over 2years.

The official sprint pricing barely matters, anyone stupid enough to buy directly from sprint instead of from Amazon, wirefly or even best buy should pay more as a tax on stupidity.

Went in to my local Sprint store the Arrive was in a corner covered with dust and had a dead battery. This is a corporate repair center not a franchise store. I would like to say I was suprised but I'm not.

reason I bought my arrive on launch day was because I didn't want to wait for shipping as shipping is really slow and stupid where I'm at. and because I wanted to have my arrive well setup and played with over my spring break, wasn't stupid at all at least not in my case.

when I went in to get my arrive on 3/20 it was properly displayed but there were no posters up. the guy I got it from was mostly positive about it and said that they were in a hurry to get the phone into stock that they weren't too concerned about the signage.

as for the pricing I do agree on that,I just saw one of their commercials and they're offering the Nexus S 4G for FREE!
