    That seems ridiculous when the exact same phone (different name) is 99 on AT&T.

    Switch to AT&T?
    Don't buy it?

    OR
    And I know this will sound wacky,
    You can do what you planned to do all along and buy it.

    Yup. Only major difference is the LTE radio. Which is expensive, but not worth $300. That's why I'm skipping to the Incredible 2. Up to you if you find the price worth it.

    I'll take "don't buy it" for $0.

    Thanks.

    I'll wait and see what wirefly has it priced at. I've never had any problems with wirefly, so I don't mind ordering from them.

    What phone is that, because I haven't seen the same exact phone on any network.

    they have different processor. inspire has 4gb memory.. TB has 8gb.... TB comes with 32 GB sd card.. TB has FFC 1.3mp so support skype and other things.. inspire does not have one.. TB has bigger battery and able to use extended batterys.. you cant use a extended battery on the inspire 4g.. tb has a kickstand.. and at&t 4g sucks and cant penetrate buildings at all so SERVICE and i think the rear camera on the phones have different sensors!

    Anyone know why I just got an email from verizon saying I'm eligible for an upgrade even though my 2 year contract isn't up for 9 months?

    Wait 30 days or so and I'm sure vzw will drop it down to 199.

    They're both HTCs and they're Droids, therefore they're the same phone, I guess???
