    The only one I know to be fee free is the replenish as part of a go green promotion.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    4. Same comm board, Sprint still thinks you have the a Pre- which means you're still grandfathered in. No $10 fee.
    So what if I upgraded to a Nexus S 4g (with the $10 tax obviously) and decided that I didn't like it and went back to my original Pre-. Can I get the tax taken off again?

    I'm under the impression that no, I can not.

    Could give it a shot some have and some haven't, this is gonna be on a YMMV basis when switching back, etc.

    I did the "upgrade" from my Original Pre to an Epic 4G and got hit with the 10 dollar tax. Really didn't like it as much as my Pre and decided to go back cracks and all. It took a lot of arguing on my part but they took the 10 dollar fee off. The lady who finally did it reasoned that it was a 'warranty' issue even though nothing was done to my Pre.

    I then Frankened into a Plus. Gonna Franken into a 2 when the right deal arises.

    Could you believe they wanted to charge me an extra 120 bucks a year for the exact same physical phone I was using two weeks prior?

    I made the plunge and bought a pre 2 off ebay and successfully performed the frankenpre surgery. However I think I may have messed my gps up as I cant seem to get a signal. Also, it seems a bit too creaky. Maybe I didnt put it back together right though.

    I havent tried to get the 10 dollars taken off my account though and am not holding out much hope.
