Sprint HTC One just $29.99 with Beats headphones and $50 Dell gift card

0. phoneArena 14 Aug 2013, 13:39 posted on

Dell has a deal (say that ten times fast) that actually pays you to buy a hot new smartphone from them; and it's not just any smartphone, but the popular HTC One, with Sprint branding. The aluminum clad uni-body beast is obviously bringing in enough moola to allow the Taiwan based manufacturer to spend the big bucks it takes to land an A-list actor for commercials...

Damn, instead they're just offering the headphones for free. You're really getting screwed there, aren't you?

Let me reword that, Beats should charge 29.99 for the headphones. They're a steal for free, but if you were to buy them for $100 you're getting ripped off.

Lol, yeah. I knew what you meant. I just like being a smartass too. $30 seems a fair price for beats, they're decent headphones. But if youre paying $100 you should get some Shures or Sennheiser headphones, then you can actually get the quality and rich sound you're paying for. At $30, beats would be a much better deal than those pos skull candy headphones.

Another reason not to choose Sprint: FAIL!!
It's probably taking so long for everything because all the above promo orders are being processed through their outsourced Calling Centers [in Guam and India].

In the words of Nancy Reagan, "Say no to drugs and say no to Sprint!"

No offense taken. As much as their "Unlimited Everything" plan was (maybe 3 years ago), it wasn't enough to subject myself to the horrid torture of their Customer (OUTSOURCED) Service. And, now, their 3G network is so clogged and their 4G LTE network so sparse that, you couldn't [PAY ME] enough to sign a 2-year death trap!!

Sprint no longer uses overseas call centers.

Right!? And, 3rd-party chargers don't kill people, it's really a conspiracy by the Lollipop Guild.

One of the advantages of being on a SERO plan is you get transferred to an American call center.

I can tell you one of the advantages that you get with t-mobiles data network.

if they had the upgrading fee to $29.99 i would have tried it again. I hate the $36 activation fee too!

Yeah, it used to be $16 or $18 and was usually waived. Not anymore.

HTC is wasting $1 billion on Robert Downey. HTC will go bankrupt very soon.
