    Default RadioShack HTC One Deal

    Looks like you get a $50 Google Play gift card and $10 off the phone if you agree to a two year contract through them for either the AT&T or Sprint versions of the phone, doesn't apply for T-Mobile. Pretty sweet deal imo.

    Thanks for sharing this! We've picked up a few of our Sprint phones at Radio Shack and have always been pleased with the experience. My wife is on a SERO plan & even then we haven't had any issues. Although I pretty much exclusively use Amazon for mp3 and digital purchases, I am sure I can find a use for the $50 card. Between these discounts & the HTC trade-in offer, this is going to be the cheapest upgrade I've had in quite some time.

    I actaully really like this.. if Radio shack does pre orders I will probably stick with them! I was really geared towards best buy and i will be doing best buy if radio shack doesnt do a pre order. BUT with these details coming up the launch of the phone shouldnt be too far from now!

    When the Evo3D came out, I was able to pre-order at my local radio shack & picked up on the day of release. A smooth, easy transaction...

    No problems, no complaints. I had pre-registered, got a friendly call the night before the release date to let me know they had it in store & to schedule a pickup time, and was in & out in no time on release date. The only issue I had was that I can never get the activation fee automatically waived... I think the first time it happened I just called Sprint and got it waived immediately, the second time I was unsuccessful. It was the only time I've ever had to pay an activation fee in 11 years & I would have pursued it further but life got in the way.

    I saw the big warnings other people posted about Radio Shack, too, and I'm a little confused by that. Not only was I happy, but I think that my activation was about as complicated as it gets: because I wasn't out of contract, I had to use my wife's line (which is by itself on a SERO plan) to upgrade. I then had to transfer the phone over to my line which is a part of my dad's plan (who lives across the country). When it came time for my wife to upgrade, I used my sister's line (also on my dad's plan) and then transferred it back over to my wife's SERO plan.

    $36 (I had to look it up). Apparently, Sprint is hardly ever waiving the fees anymore... so maybe I did try and got nowhere when I did her upgrade...

    Still, if EVERYONE is charging it, you're still getting a better deal at the Shack b/c they're giving $10 back and $50 Google Play card. Activation fee is bogus, though...

    Well i personally never had sprint charge me an activation fee. Even when i brought in my Evo 3d that i bought off craigslist. But if you do the math your paying for a $36 activation fee and getting $10 off the phone and then you get the $50 play card so i think Radio shack would still be the best deal. Im curious as to what best buy would be doing though

    I think Best Buy had a deal that you had to sign up by a certain time, i think it was middle or end of Feb, and then when you upgrade they give you a $50 gift card. Maybe they have other deals now though.

    I spoke to Radio Shack today and asked them what the advantage was in ordering through them. They told me that their prices were usually lower than the carriers, and they have a 30 day guarantee that if the phone decreases in price in 30 days they will give you back the difference. Don't think there is a chance of THAT happening, lol. Also they give you product support through the life of the phone. He didn't mention the Play Store gift card or the $10 off the price. Maybe he thought I already knew about it. Or maybe it's not in my store?

    I know there is an activation fee for an upgrade, and they told me they don't EVER waive that. I got that info previously from several Att reps. There is an activation fee, the price for the phone, (we still don't know what that is) and tax on the full retail value of the phone. The activation fee is added to your first bill, and the rest is paid upfront.

    I can't speak for AT&T, but Verizon and Sprint both will waive it if it's the deal breaker. All it takes is the customer walking away from the deal.

    Well, and if you buy from Radio Shack (or Best Buy, I assume) then you don't really have the opportunity to walk away... I probably got lucky with getting the refund the first time.

    I believe that they make you prepay for a $50 RS gift card which is, of course, applied to your phone purchase price... At least that's how they have done it before.

    Anyone know if Radio Shack is giving the free HTC Media Link with AT&T preorder or is that only through AT&T directly?

    That's the conclusion I've arrived at... the only advantage to ordering directly from Sprint is that apparently they are often mailed out a few days early. As much as I want the phone NOW, I'm willing to wait two days for a $60 savings. Well, I keep telling myself that at least...

    I hear ya....I've been debating that one in my head. The little bit of sanity I have left is screaming "SIXTY dollars in savings vs 1? day earlier with the phone....cmon this isn't a tough one" while the rest of me is going "ZOMG U CAN GET IT SOONER, WHO CARES WHAT IT WOULD COST YOU!"

    Has any one verified with Radio Shack? I called 3 different stores in my area and none of them know anything about Pre Ordering the ONE

    I went down to the only One in the area and they knew nothing about preordering the One. Online preorders start tomorrow?

    Yeah, I'm a little troubled about this as well... I called three stores. The first knew nothing but took my info down. The second said he wasn't even sure they'd do preorders. The last thought it would be the end of next week.

    So do I preorder with Sprint to guarantee getting it & cancel if RS gets their story straight? Does Sprint even let you cancel preorders? With all the news about supply problems, I don't want to miss the boat & my poor 3D is about to give up the ghost.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    OK, so I decided to play it really safe & pre-ordered with Sprint telesales. One of the reps I spoke with said that they were already getting warnings on this phone which (she assumed) meant that the stock was running low. She also said interest in the phone had knocked out the sprint order website.

    Anyway, for the privilege of ordering directly from Sprint, they are charging me $12 for shipping. I am definitely canceling my Sprint order if I can get a definite YES from RS on them getting the device in stock.

    Yeah couldn't find any info with the radio shack promo, so I pre ordered mine once it became available online throgh Sprint. Shipping was free for me, I did get an email from htc this morning stating that if I did the pre order with them they would give me a free case. They gave me a coupon code to use, if any one wants it let me know I will forward it to you.

    Wow so then the radio shack deal was a ploy, and now for anyone looking to get the phone through sprint really has no benefits doing it through sprint corp, bb, or radio shack. I guess maybe ill just do the preorder through sprint and get it a day early as a benefit
