dealssamsung galaxy s® iii 16gb for $99.99 + free…


Sprint? No thanks. Been there, done that, won't go back.


@bigelowb: Funny... I feel that way about AT&T. That's why I'm willing to try sprint.

It was definately time for an upgrade:


... OH ... I forgot one more "goodie" with this deal: Once you activate, it allows you to load / increase your "dropox" file allocation to 50GB. (

... 50 GIGABYTE !!! free cloud. :)


why must I have tmobile

Every time I see a great price for a phone, it's sprint.


I have tried them all. For what it's worth, Sprint had the best unlimited plan... no hidden fees like AT&T and TMobile... and I had terrible CS with both AT&T and T-mobile. I'm sure some have had bad experience with Sprint, but I am pretty happy with them.


I jumped on this deal last week. Activation was a bit of a pain in the ass (probably my retardation?) but I'm very pleased with the service I've received. And the phone is just awesome! Looking forward to my $100 gift card.


Cheapest applicable plan is $80 a month, for reference. It's tempting that Sprint still has unlimited data, but I just refuse to budget so much to a cell phone bill, which means no smart phones for me still for the foreseeable future.


Virgin Mobile, Sprint's "stepchild" prepaid, no contract company, which runs on Sprint's network, has a plan for 300 talk minutes, unlimited text, and unlimited data (throttled after 2.5GB) for only $35 a month. I got the very nice HTC One V for only $200, they also offer the HTC Evo V 4G for $300. I would love to splurge on a Galaxy S III, but for those of us with a budget, Virgin Mobile is fantastic!


I hate sprint. Their biggest problem is that they have a minimal selection of phones. Obviously with this deal, that negates that problem. However, I've found their network to be lacking; I've noticed a decrease in 3G speeds over the past year. Additionally, while they advertise 4G (which is really fast), I don't get 4G signal in a relatively large college town. Lastly, their coverage is (profanity). There are lots of places on my campus where all other carriers have reception, but Sprint doesn't. In fact, my school recently decided to install signal repeaters, and were looking for carriers to partner with and offer that service. Verizon and AT&T both agreed; Sprint did not.

On the flip side, they have a nice unlimited plan (although, with the 3G speeds I get... it's hardly unlimited).

Sprint: Good plans, pretty bad service.


The deal is great if you're willing to go with Sprint. I've had them for the past 2 years and even though they have unlimited data I'm going to try At&t this time because Sprint's 3G is slow and they dont have 4G service in the Phoenix area yet. I rarely go over 2 GB anyway so I'd rather get the data faster and get only 3GB than unlimited and stuck with sprint's slow 3G speeds.
