    Fry's electronics has some great prices on Sprint phones right now.

    Sanyo Katana = $99
    Samsung M500 = $79
    Samsung M610 = $199
    Blackberry 7130e = $149

    These are all out-the-door prices for exisiting customers with no contracts or rebates required! Sprint also currently charges $149 for the Blackberry 7130e but there's a huge difference. They require a new 2 year line of service to get that price! Fry's does not.

    Fry's is a great store! A play where even existing customers can get a great bargain. Too bad other retail locations won't give any deals like this.

    Wow, great deals. Sucks that Sprint would reset my eligibilty for a new phone if I got this. :mad: They really need to stop that. That is why I got an a900 instead of a brand new Samsung M500...didn't want to reset it.

    No I don't think they did. They did change the policies on it a little such as to not count a refurb or previously used phone. But new phones will reset it as far as I know.

    M610? I may try to get another. These haven't been sold for a while so it's cool the Fry's has the phone. It has been a great phone for me. Sure it has its problems, but I love the form and micro SD support. I can stack the M610 on top of my A900 and it is the same thickness of my junk phone.

    That's not good, but better then it was. :) I thought it was just on phone upgrades when a $75 or $150 rebate is used or retention deals.

    I checked in my employee store. I saw some deal which I can get $50 into my pocket for signing up, not paying anything.

    Best Buy sometimes does this... Been quite a while since I'm not a Sprint user anymore.

    New phones purchased at full price are no longer supposed to reset the upgrade eligibility date, but you will most likely need to plead your case in order to upgrade. According to what I was told by a Sprint employee, CS agents are now instructed to "research" the custoomers handset history and if they find no subsidized upgrades over the past 2 years, they can offer new customer pricing, even to people that have switched phones within the past 2 years.

    I just successfully did this myself. Though I change phones a bit, I had not received any discounts since I first signed up with Sprint 2 years ago. I was refused the rebates at first, but when I pointed out it had been two years since I got any discounts they did allow me to get new customer pricing on the 8830. I then sold my 8703 on craigslist, essentially making my new 8830 totally free. :)

    But I thought there was some date as to when this policy changed. I'm still on the old rules because I activated my last phone before 9/1/06.

    That's what I thought as well, and was told by the Sprint employee (a dude over at HoFo) that the old rules do not apply to anyone any longer, you just have to be persistent and insist that they look at your handset history to see when you last received concessions/rebates.

    I did the samething earlier in the year. I now have an upgrade comming in about a month. For me it was warrentee exchanges that messed up my upgrade date. No one ever noted my account on any of the exchanges. :(
