    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...

    A phone is not as big as a laptop so squeezing all that into a phone has higher cost versus fitting the same performance into a laptop. Yes Verizon has higher pricing than the other carriers but in reality you get what you pay for. I makes no sense for me to buy a cheaper phone when it will have bad coverage. If I'm wrong then all the people still on Verizon must be idiots.

    Top end 4G phones aren't going to be less than $299 so you better get used to it.

    Not to defend Verizon or any carrier for that matter, but it's fairly common knowledge that carriers usually lose money on phones. They make most of their money from the contracts.

    The prime is most likely going to be the same price. If you want a cheap phone go to ebay and get a 2yr old hunk of junk otherwise dont complain
