    I am cancelling my sprint plan ( 15 years of crap service) and joining Verizon.
    where I work, we have the M8 on Verizon for $189, with a $100 mail in rebate !!!!!!!!!!! so I can get it for $89, and my plan through Verizon is a single line $60 plan with 1gb data. ( I use almost no data, even with unlimited from sprint)

    sounds like a deal , the $100 rebate covers my ETF fee from sprint. ( contract up in sept.)

    im coming from the HTC evo LTE, and the og evo before that.
    love the sense OS . I played with the S5 too, and compared cameras, and I cant see much difference at all. maybe on a big monitor you can tell, I don't know.
    but the familiarity of the HTC is what sells me. im too scared to try a S5 after having htc for years. plus, the M8 is just sweet.

    You made TWO good choices:
    -joining Verizon
    -getting the HTC One M8!

    You will love this phone!

    I AM FREAKING PISSED OFF, AND SICK TO MY STOMACH !

    so I got the new m8 just now, paid at the cashier. as I was walking out, the phone was loose in the bag, as I was putting my paperwork and old phone in the bag, the brand new 10 second old M8 slipped out of a hole and bounced flat on its back. it survived, but now it has pin hole side concrete marks on the entire back !
    my work wouldn't let me get a new one, ( even though I JUST walked out the f-ing door). they said it was dropped.
    IT FELL OUT OF THE FREAKING BAG ! THERE WAS A HOLE ON THE SIDE OF THE BAG! how is THAT my fault ?
    im mad as hell......

    but the phone has character now I guess......

    I love Sprint. Don't know why people think it's bad. I pay $25 a month for unlimited calls and texts, and 1GB data.. I use nowhere near ANY of that. I went from an EVO to an M8 as well. Interesting how many people made the exact same move. This is the best phone I've ever owned. It's very slippery, so be careful if you didn't get a case yet.

    Bummer, but maybe it will give the back some texture so it won't be so slippery in the hand.

    Did you talk with Verizon and show them the bag?

    That is rather unfortunate =[

    Why should anyone be responsible for giving you a new phone after you dropped it? 5 minutes or 5 days it doesn't matter it's yours to take care of.

    Well if they gave me a bag with a hole in it to carry a $600 phone i just purchased from them, yeah, i'd have turned right around and explained the situation. Seems to me he is not solely at fault here.

    I work at a big company who Is a 3rd party retailor of Verizon,sprint,att. I showed the bag, customer service ( which is usually top notch) she showed her mgr. he said unfortunately it was dropped,so they cant do anything.
    ive got a Supcase on order too. the "dots" go the entire length of the phone about half the width, down the middle.
    so pissed.... maybe it was my fault and I shouldn't have put it loose in the bag. guess I should return the clear Supcase and get a solid color.

    but on the bright side, the phone hit flat on its back, from waist high, (im 6-4") and bounced and flipped and landed on its screen.
    the only damage was the pin size marks in the metal. no screen damage.

    should I get insurance afterall, and use the ded. of $100 ? or just say F-IT and slap a case on it?

    exactly what I did. the sales guy gave me the phone, I put it in my pocket. upon leaving I put it in the bag as I was jostling around my old phone and paperwork to put in the bag. then it happened.....
    uggggghhh.... sucks ***. oh well, live and learn I guess.
    I see my companys view.... it technically was dropped, if it slid out of the bag, or my pocket. their view on returns is is it defective, then yes, damaged by customer, no. but it was literaly right outside the friggin door
    a car dealership isn't going to repair your fender if you buy a $50k Camaro, turn the corner on the lot and crash into a pole.
    it is what it is, I guess

    Because as you said.. You don't use data.. And obviously are on a framily plan with enough people :P. I left Sprint because of dial up speeds... Couldn't handle that.
