I was just looking at this as well, and thats how it appears to me also. I would love to upgrade my Evo, and get the iPhone, but not for $549. They should work a deal for existing customers too....
Remember this is the Iphone 4 at $549, not the iphone 4s, iphone 4s will be even more expensive. The question is whether Sprint will give customers a break on the 4s and allow customers who are not eligible for an upgrade to purchase the iphone 4s at discount prices. I'm starting to doubt it.
Yup !!!!!! I can only imagine what the 4s will be !!! 750!!!! If so I will pay my termination fee and sign up with AT&T !! That would be cheaper than buying the phone outright ! Shoot it would be cheaper to do that with the iPhone 4 too ! Totally disappointed ! Even though I have 11 months left on contract I know I need to pay full price but this is insane goodbye sprint
I agree with you totally! I didn't even realize that this price was for only the 4 and not 4S. That's a little crazy.... I'm thinking of just adding a line, then waiting a few weeks, and cutting off my Evo, only leaving the iPhone. Can I even do that? Haha
The adding a line, then terminating old line sounds interesting. I think they would charge you an ETF (Early Termination Fee) on the line you terminate, not sure what that would be, but might just be a better deal. All I know is if they don't give me a deal now, then I'll wait until my contract is up and at that time evaluate all my options including switching to another provider. They show no loyalty to me, guess I have no obligation to show any type of loyalty back.
The ETF of $200 is reduced after 6 months by $10 per month, so after 1 years the ETF would be $120 so the iphone 4, as an example, would cost you $99+120 = $220, and much better than $549!!!
