    This one isn't a Verizon offer, but we figured you guys would like to see what's out there, and it might be useful to your friends or family members. There's an amazing online only deal over at Sprint. For a limited time only, from August 14 through August 26, Sprint is offering a $100 American Express Reward/Gift Card for free with the purchase of any smartphone along with a new two-year agreement. They are also waving their usual $36 dollar activation fee. This deal even includes their premier phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S III and others. Here are a few more details,
    This is a pretty sweet deal, effectively making some of these phones free, or at least really cheap. Here's a link below for you to check it out yourself!

    Might actually consider giving VZ my ETF and going this route, though I'd still rather not have to sign another contract at all. If I consider this $100 off it, my ETF would be $120, minus whatever I can get for my Thunderbolt from Craigslist. Worth considering, IMO..

    Anyone have Sprint in Central NJ? Is the service REALLY that bad? If you had to choose, Galaxy S3 or the Evo 4G LTE?

    It's funny you say that because we have editors on staff that have been with Sprint for years, and even lived in small rural towns without ever having Sprint "coverage" issues. Perhaps that is simply a myth from the past that people keep perpetuating because it's a habit to bag on Sprint.

    (Keep in mind, I am referring to cell phone coverage. Their data network is mostly 3G and includes the now defunct WiMAX, which is pretty weak. However, our insider sources have been sharing that Sprint's 4G LTE rollout is proceeding ahead of schedule. Also, apparently, Sprint is upgrading their data network in such a way, that when the switchover to Advanced-LTE happens in a couple of years, they will actually be ahead of the rest of the carriers, including VZW. Just FYI)

    And to all the Apple fans who like to argue "the only reason Android sells more is all those cheap Android phones", I say: Check out the CURRENT GENERATION, iPhone 4S on Sprint - marked down to $149, PLUS a $100 gift card. Now compare your $49 current iPhone to the price for some of the best selling Android phones: like the S3, or the Razr Maxx. I'd say there are many drivers other than price that are driving Android sales these days!

    Now that iPhone sales have started dropping WAY off 6 months before a new release - rather than 3 months before, as had been the case in the past - Apple (along with their US carriers) find themselves in the desperate position of competing with Android with the only weapon they currently have at their disposal - price. A very slippery slope, indeed. And one that is counter to everything Apple has stood for up until this point.
