I just ordered it online via EPRP. The premium data can be unchecked, but when you go to the next step, you get a warning that the data plan you selected won't work with the phone. You don't have a choice really.
Still, not bad - with equipment protection, it comes to 76.99/mo. Still cheaper than my current iPhone plan (84.99/mo) - yeah, 8 bucks cheaper a mo.
The diff? Sprint is unlimited everything, and 500 min land line calls with 7pm nights. Also I get insurance for the phone.
AT&T, the price I pay only gets me 1500 text (practically unlimited for me), 450 anytime minutes (but a crap load of rollover minutes from 12 months I was with them), 9pm nights, and no insurance (none even offered).
Yeah... sprint is a better deal. I just hope the EVO 4G is all that its cracked up to be. I'm not against paying the $120 ETF for AT&T (prorated) if all goes well.
I'm going to give Sprint the 30 days, and hopefully the iPhone 4G will be available before it's over so I can give that a try before I have to make a final decision on which phone/carrier I want to be on.
Last time sprint sent me something it was an HTC Touch to replace the crap Mogul, And it was overnighted via UPS, And it really did come overnight. But that may be because I raised unholy hell when I found out the f***ing mogul being advertised as a media phone could not even play low resolution video. (long story, Big thing about the GFX processor, Fun times)...
