so if i have 2 palm pres from launch day on a family plan that use to be separate accounts prior to when the pre came out. Do I have to pay the $450 for a 2nd Evo on launch day as a premier customer or can I get them both for $199 plus the re-up on the contract?
I am going to pay out of pocket for sure. I thought I was paying 599.00 anyway before all this. Also I just got off the phone with my sprint store and they are taking names and numbers now to have enough stock on release. The rep said I would be deffinatly get it on release. I also threw in the comment will I have to go to Best buy or radio shack to preorder or can you guys help me out because I want this phone. They were happy to help. HE HE

Engadget is reporting the price is 449 without a contract... so I don't think that is just the 2 year contract price.... You also gotta realize if you get this phone you are paying $120 per year in extra data service.... or 240 for a 2 year contract.... That's almost $700 for this phone... Just sayin...

I just got back from preordering the Evo at Best Buy in Memphis; I was apparently the 4th person to do so...I asked the rep about the retail price without contract, and she promptly replied "six to seven hundred dollars". I was prepared to pay this price before official pricing was announced, but i was hoping to save some money with the supposed $449 quote. Heres to hoping that the rep had no idea that she was talking about, and that engadget got it right!

The rep at my Best Buy said $800. I told her that Sprint had it listed for $450. Another worker chimed in that if Sprint had it for $450 it was likely the BB would have the same price. But I also remember that outrageous price tag they had on the Pre when it came out.
I'm hoping to not pay full retail but somehow the "primary" line on my account got switched to my wife's line even though it was mine last year when I got the Pre. Hopefully they get that all sorted out in the next couple of weeks. But $450 isn't bad for this quality of phone at all.

thanks for replying! I was posting this same issue on another forum, and was informed by another poster that BB apparently charges 100 to 150 more per phone off contract than does the actual sprint store( i have no idea why). Unfortunately the 50 dollar preorder gift card is nonrefundable, so i may have to buy the phone at spring and use the card to purchase something else
Again, im not completely sure about this, but i wanted to give everyone a heads up before delving into this

I agree, not only do we need to know Sprint full retail price, we need to know if they will sell the EVO to existing customers who don't currently have an upgrade. Sadly my upgrade isn't in June but I want to buy the phone at full retail on launch day.

Shouldn't chargeing more for the phone be considered price gouging and isn't that illegal???? 449 is the out of contract price.
