    This is what was in Sprint's own marketing lit:

    $399 MSRP
    -150 (2yr contract agreement Rebate-that's what they called it)
    -100 (MIR)
    -50 (Instant Rebate)

    they don't specify if the $150 is credit or not. If you're charging it to your account, what's the difference?

    In their price matrix though, it clearly says it's $199.99 out of pocket with the $100 MIR. It's on page 7 of their launch info. I posted it in the 755 difference thread. It also says that the rebate requires at minimum the $25 Power Vision Pack.

    If a new customer, the "instant rebate" is just that meaning you'd only plunk down $199 at the time of purchase.

    The $100 rebate comes in 1-3 months (don't get me started on those) as a check, not credit--so that is cash too.

    Now, you may be able to get the rebate too if just renewing your contract, which puts the difference at $50. But I'm not positive on that. There is also the whole playing with "retentions" which often results in Sprint matching the new customer price for renewing your contract.

    SPRINT
    If a product/service is good and people are happy with it.. or it's the less of the Evils to chose from, they wouldn't have to use contracts to keep people locked in.
    Who's to say, they will make the contract time even longer.. They make good money from people breaking the contact as it is..

    Who's to say, they will make the contract time even longer in the future.. They make good money from unhappy customers wanting to leave sprint breaking the contact as it is..
