Why is S3 $100 more off contract @ Best Buy?
I'm not due 4 an upgrade until November so I had planned on using a store credit I have 2 help off set the cost of the phone. Every other place is selling phone off contract for $599 or less. Best Buy is selling it 4 $699. Anybody know why?

FYI, I picked mine up from Best Buy, no contract pricing, and they price matched AT&T at $549. The guy that sold it was genuinely shocked that AT&T was selling it for so much less. And he didn't call to check the price. He just went to their website, saw it, called his manager over and had him override the price.

They sell for more because they would rather sell the phone with a contract. I had them price match to Verizon when I bought my incredible but had to argue with them because the sales rep said they couldn't do it. Even worse he said he would call only one store and if it wasn't in stock he wouldn't do the price match. That's the kind of BS that's putting them out of business.

Why? Because they are an independent reseller and can set any price they want.BROKE MY WRIST AND TYPING ONE-HANDED! Please forgive all typos.
PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.
