Never bought from RadioShack?
I have never bought from RadioShack and the fact that they have instant rebate and going to give me a $50 gift card back I am considering that route instead of sprint store so I have one or two questions
1. Can they charge the phone to your account like sprint does or do you have to pay on the spot.
2. Can I get sprint insurance if I buy from radioshack/bestbuy.. Some people tell me no some people tell me yes

2. Yes, you can 100% still have the Sprint insurance added to your account/phone regardless of where you purchased the Epic. If you have it on your account now, then you are set as it will automatically transfer over to the Epic once you activate the phone.

Re: Never bought from RadioShack?
The giftcard is usable however you want so if you hold it until launch day the price will be $200. You have 30 days after any phone purchase to add insurance thru Sprint. They told me they check your upgrade eligibility when you reserve one so just go down tomorrow and see what they say.

I think you just need to call Sprint and see how much credit you have with them. It depends on how long you have been with them, how you originally signed up, and other variables. I'm sure a CS person can tell you. And they may be able to increase it if you need more, depending on your credit and such.

Radio Shack website now accepting Epic pre-orders
Samsung Epic - Coming Soon
I've purchased from the Shack before. Its best you go in personally and not by their website. Its cleaner and easier. You don't have to mess around with your calling plan like you do if you do it over the web.
In person, you basiclly pay them $50 to reserve it. You get a $50 RS Gift Card in return that you use when you pick up your phone. So you cough up another $200 when you pick it up.
One thing I noticed though, Radio Shack is NOT offering any "specials or gift" for per-orders for the Epic like they did for the other Galaxy class devices.
What's with that????
