    Default Deal on Epic At Radio Shack

    Just thought I would let those people who are considering the Epic know that Radio Shack is currently running a special deal on the Epic. If you are eligible for an upgrade (4/1/11 for me!) the phone is $199.99 plus you can get an extra $100 off by trading in ANY working cell phone. I called my local store to confirm this. As long as the phone you are trading in powers on and is not damaged (i.e. cracked screen), they will give you $100 off the Epic. That makes the final price $99.99 with upgrade and seals the deal for me. Friday can't come fast enough!

    Thats a great idea, i think everybody should take advantage of that and take your nice slightly older phones in for a 100 trade in. Sure beats the hastle of selling on craigs list or ebay.

    From what I understand, if you're eligible you're eligible. It won't change until you use it.

    I called Sprint, and they were willing to reset my upgrade, so I can get it today. Not sure how they will handle this change over, but I wasn't taking any chances!

    I heard if they gave you the upgrade they can not revome for this year. My wife has her upgrade for being a premier costumer on June. She will not get more upgrades of one year because she is in family plan of $129.99 in order to keep with this one year upgrade she has to move up to $169.99 or more for a fammily plan. I understand. When she knew about the new policy that Sprint is about to enforce as of 04/01/2011. She called Sprint to find out what was the policy since she is eligible on 06/01/2011.

    Yea $89.99 for single lines, $169.99 for family. Im tempted to just use my upgrade today. But I figure since evo 3D comes out this summer, ill just make sure to change my plan to "gold" status 3 months prior. That why Ill qualify for my original yearly upgrade date

    But if you are already eligible for an upgrade before 4/1/2011, you will continue to be eligible after that date despite the changes. It's once you use that upgrade that you won't be able to upgrade again for 2 years.

    My upgrade date is 4/1/11 also. I contacted Sprint and was told my date would remain the same.

    My upgrade is 1/1/2011. And they told me I will lose it unless I upgrade by today, I will go back to 22 months instead of 12 months.
