    So I've been following this site for a while now and have been interested in upgrading to a Pre since it's come out. I've been with sprint forever and love their plans. My 2 year agreement is finally up and I'm able to get the Pre finally.

    My dilemma is that the new Pre Plus is 149.99 on Verizon and Sprint is charging the same amount for the regular Pre. I don't really want to wait 5/6 months (june'ish) for a new sprint Pre to come out, but i just can't justify spending the same amount on an old pre when i could get a Pre Plus.

    Does anyone know if Sprint will offer the Pre for less if you call, or if any rumors about Sprint lowering their price for the Pre? Or any other options to get a Sprint Pre for less than the Pre Plus?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Don't forget to fully research the cost of the plan you'll have to sign up for 2 years to get either Pre.

    In all but a few rare cases, Sprint will be far cheaper over the length of your contract than Verizon. Remember that the true "cost" of the phone should not be measured in handset price alone.

    I fully know the prices... I know Sprint is cheaper, that's why I'm with them.

    My issue is that the "cost" of the Sprint Pre is the same (149.99) with 2 year deal as the Verizon Pre Plus. My dilemma is that I don't want to spend 150 bucks when the other carrier is selling an Improved device for the same price. It's like would you buy a ps2 for the price of the PS3?

    Not according to their website. It's $130 to upgrade there.

    He's right Sprint stores won't budge on the prices. So I went to BB and bought the pre upgrade for $99, easy and no problems.

    At this point, I'd recommend you either wait, or buy a Pre on ebay, so you're eligible for an upgrade in June (or thereabouts). I suspect we'll be seeing a new device on Sprint about then.
