Just depends on the pricing. Web specials cannot be exchanged in store (very stupid as to why they can't) and the device must be sent back to the warehouse. Once returned, they receive their upgrade eligibility. If the phone is free, why the eff can't they just return in store. If they sell the phone, who cares, rite?

With Sprint, if it's bought online or in store, it depends on the pricing. If it was a web special, the store can't do a return and exchange and a return kit needs to be sent. If it's a normal priced phone, like an iPhone or the bigger named phones, they can be returned/exchanged in store, but must be a Sprint retail store obviously.

For Sprint, they do have the option to waive it sometimes. I don't think they can offer anything else other than the pricing we currently offer it at. We can only pricematch what is offered with Sprint. Sometimes there are promotions for cheaper accessories and stuff, but overall there is no incentive to buy online through Sprint.

Me: Thanks for pre-ordering. A shiny new Samsung Galaxy Nexus LTE is waiting for you in our warehouse. Shipping starts April 19th and we will send you an email the second it ships. Delivery should occur within 1 to 3 business days thereafter. You may continue to track the status of your order on this web page. Customer: I saw that, but is it possible for the phone to be delivered on Saturday? Or will I have to wait ...

Me: I see. I'm afraid there would be no way to further lower the bill if you are already on our lowest costing Data plan that we offer. Customer: can I get an indiviual plan and add lines Me: An individual plan would be for 1 phone only. Customer: i cant add lines Me: I'm afraid not, as it's an individual plan. Family plans, or Shared plans, are the plans that can add lines.

So what's the reasoning about AT&T "the worst company ever"

More than likely. With Sprint, purchasing anywhere, whether it be at a retail store, online, telesales, 3rd party vendor, etc. The $36 activation is billed to the account instead of on the purchase itself.

really? back to the activation/upgrade fee..

in the Article: Verizon Implementing $30 Upgrade Fee Starting April 22 forum

Sprint has always had the $36 activation fee. Originally it was waived when ordering online. There was an $18 upgrade fee when purchasing in store and possibly through Telesales (option to waive it.) Now since we have the iPhone..that $20billion and all, $36 activation/upgrade fees apply to all purchases, made online, in store or Telesales.

Probably a technical glitch. My text amount has dropped significantly, I'm with AT&T though. Verizon probably doesn't allow it. Have you tried disabling iMessage and then re-enabling?

Every iPhone comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary support. AppleCare+ for iPhone extends your coverage to two years from the original purchase date of your iPhone1 and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a $49 service fee.2 Whether you use your iPhone with a Mac or a PC, just one phone call can help resolve most issues.

Go through Squaretrade or something..If they can't fix your phone, they reimburse you for the amount of your phone. If you got the phone as the new customer/upgrade pricing, you will be paying full retail price for the new phone.

because they like being behind the curve. :P I'd hope blackberry would at least release a 4G devices, whether it be LTE or Sprint's Wi-Max since LTE is yet to be seen on Sprint.

which shouldn't be the way of getting it done, it should just take one time to get the issue resolved. Sprint just let's their departments lie and screw up repeatedly.
