Hello, my family is in the Sprint Wireless Advantage Club. I was hoping to upgrade to a new phone soon since mine is a really old, laggy HTC Hero. I've been considering phones such as the Galaxy Nexus and now the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The Sprint employee who opened the account recently emailed us allowing me to look through the shop to find a phone I wanted through the Sprint Wireless Advantage Club. I have two friends who's families are also under the same employee. They recently upgraded to Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch's. I decided to wait a little bit longer for a better phone. Strangely enough, I could not find the Galaxy Nexus even though it had been out for a while. I was doing some research about the HTC EVO 4G LTE and the Sprint Wireless Advantage Club. I read that we get phone upgrades later than other customers. I was just wondering why this is so and when the HTC EVO 4G LTE would be available to the Sprint Wireless Advantage Club customers. I read somewhere that we were able to upgrade to the iPhone 4S about a month later than the normal release. Does that mean I have to wait until about July 2nd or so to upgrade to the HTC EVO 4G LTE?
EDIT: I am also not sure which section this discussion thread should be in. If anyone who knows can move it or point me in the right direction, I'd be happy to move.
The Sprint Wireless Advantage Club is an employee account type. Technically, the account belongs to the employee and as such is treated like our other employee accounts. Sometimes when high demand devices are released there is a period of time employees must wait before being able to upgrade to these phones. We want to make sure our customers can get their hands on these as quickly as possible so inventory is reserved for them. There has not been a specified date announced when employee accounts may order these new devices. Generally, it is determined based of inventory availability.
Sprint is proud to have been named to The Civic 50, an annual survey of America?s most community-minded companies.
