    Are you serious?? The Charge is $299 and it doesn't even compare to the Bionic. What did you expect the price to be?

    I'd love it to be free.
    But be real, it's the first dual core LTE device. you had to know it was going to come at a premium.

    Which is the main reason they are charging this much... most people who do want this phone want it that bad

    But the Sprint network is junk.. at least where I live.
    You couldnt pay me to live on a network where I dropped calls that frequently.

    $199.00 with a two year contract is plenty! Those greedy bastages!

    Are YOU serious?? Some of us know what these devices are really worth... $300 is really high. And full retail for one of these things? You'd be nuts to throw your money at that. Oh well, it's your money, do what you want with it. :)

    It doesn't matter if another phone is even more price-jacked than the Bionic, it's still a lot, so please, ease off a bit on the condescending tone for those with sticker shock.

    It IS a LOT to pay for a phone. You're into laptop computer pricing territory now, but with WAY less processing power/memory/storage/connectivity than a laptop has.





    ...Waiting for the "but it has a camera" line now...

    I'm a full retailer. :)

    No way I can wait two years to upgrade devices, so every other year I buy at retail. Gotta pay to play...
