Figuring it was released on September 21, 2012: nine whole months have passed since its' release, $549 is waaaaay overpriced!!
I hope at lease it has the new and improved Rainbow iOS7 Theme.

While Virgin Mobile gets their Iphone on a Friday, Sprint lowers the price of their iPhone 5 to $99 and U.S. Cellular launchers their iPhone 5 in late September-early October.

You should take note that Sprint's iPhone is only $99 if you transfer your number in from a different carrier. Otherwise, it's still $199.

On contract rite? Virgin is contract free, $549 is still high. Phones don't usually go on sale as far as off contract pricing, unless there really old. 9 months isn't old enough.

someone will still pay 549 for an iphone on sprints "super reliable" network.

What about boost mobile ? Haha i dont like virgin or boost since i had both before but for some reason boost worked better i never got that, since they both use sprints network i had less problems with calling,data and texts with boost in the same locations i used virgin.

I could understand paying that much for the 32GB model but yikes. I would suggest anyone to buy the SGS3(16gb WITH a micro sd card slot) for a much cheaper 399 price tag.
