    I wonder, how does Sprint handle cancellations?

    If I could transfer my number to Google Voice which will cancel my current contract, then do a new contract and retransfer my number, I wonder how Sprint will handle the ETF....I WANT THE NEXUS S.

    I can't stop reading stuff about it.

    $50 makes it so tempting....I'd consider dumping AT&T.
    as a former att orange customer, i have +/- 3000 rollover minuets from 'migration' to att blue. hard to give that up.
    the $100 amazon savings only makes up for 250 mins.

    BUT, the nexus s 4g IS 'pure' google...AND google wallet eligible...

    decisions, decisions...

    Well considering you don't use any minutes unless you call a landline on sprint it more than makes up for it.

    Anyone have any idea if I would still get the 125 for switching from another carrier or is that only if I order through sprint?

    I'm returning mine back to sprint with the 30 day return thing and re-ordering from amazon. Even if they charge me $35 restocking fee, I'm still up $65 and might not have to pay $18 upgrade fee if I just activate it myself online (not sure how it works, but this was the first time I've had to spend more money to get a phone I already bought activated on my account..stupid fees).

    The phones have to be activated through the phone number that Amazon gives you but the guy said that there was no upgrade fee because I had ordered it on the internet and not used the phone or did the upgrade in store.

    I heard about that rumor but sprint's free activation on amazon ends tonight. Save $30 on activation now or wait until tomorrow in hopes that the phone is free? If the rumor is false, I'll have to pay more...

    though, on a random note, does anyone have any experience ordering multiple line upgrades? I might still take all four of our lines to Nexus S's if they're $50

    Free activation when you buy a Sprint phone between midnight PDT May 23, 2011, through 11:59 p.m. PDT May 29, 2011. It says it can take up to three billing cycles to appear as credit on your bill.

    Here's the details on the free activation: http://wireless.amazon.com/f/sprinta...acUvbUpU954567

    I noticed. I should have got it for $99 with free activation. Oh well... Hopefully it goes on sale again soon. My pre is begging to get upgraded.

    OK, so it's back to $99 on Amazon Wireless for adding a line to existing account (which is what I want to do). No free activation though, it's $36.

    Did anyone get the Nexus from Amazon? Just curious on the overall experience (ease, shipping, activation, etc.). I have never bought a phone from anyone other than Sprint and want to see what it's all about.

    wait, $36 i thought was for new customers?

    and my brother got it. fast, quick, painless. activation was painless, tho the rep seemed a little behind on what phones existed. not sure if it's sprint or amazon there.

    also, wasn't it always $100 for adding a new line?

    The Add a line to an existing family contract had gone up to $150 after the Memorial Day weekend special and is now back down to $100. I'm not sure about the other options since I wasn't looking at those.

    And $36 was on the cart for me when I got to the end of checkout.

    When I see people complain about the activation fee... please.... Sprint waives that if you ask. Sometimes it accidently goes to a new phone (without an upgrade) also. Just call and its waived, never let that limit or hinder your options. My .02.

    Amazon was legit, they didnt reset my upgrade eligibility. I bought a HTC Arrive from Microsoft also and flipped it. Made good money on this upgrade and I love my Nexus S 4G. I put the MUIU Rom on it and it is so BEAUTIFUL :'-)

    Sprint is not the reason to use amazon if you want to avoid activation fees. Best buy is. They almost never waive activation. Sprint always does for me too. But you can usually get the phone at the best buy price from amazon without activation.
