    Dear Sprint,

    Please de-fugly the UI. Make it match the pink or at least be neutral or white.

    “The phone is now available for $249.99 after new 2 year agreement before an additional $100 mail-in rebate, bringing the total to $99.99.”

    Last I checked $249.99 minus $100, equals $149.99. Must be a rounding issue.

    I’ve since pinned it to Sprint’s site not correctly posting the Web Special discount correctly, and I’ll modify the article until I hear something from them about the math issue.

    SRP for the phone is $449.99, you get $150 off with a new 2yr and an additional $100 for an instant credit. After that it is a $100 MIR to make the final cost $99.99 if elligilbe to upgrade or new lines of service.

    Guys, I’m not seeing the info for the instant credit after the $150 instant discount and the mail-in rebate on the sales page. That’s where the initial confusion started.

    most people dont but when you work for the company its all available 🙂

    You can get it at Radio Shack for 79.99 with instant rebates. That means no mail in rebates for customers.
