Price cut taking Sprint's Samsung Epic 4G Touch under $100 on contract?

Arguably the best of the three variants of the Samsung Galaxy S II that are available from the major U.S. carriers, the Samsung Epic 4G Touch, is getting a nice haircut to $99.99 with a signed 2-year contract just in time to free up room for the sequel...

Its still not a bad phone. Better option than the igarbage 4s for 200.

If Virgin Mobile can sell the iPhone, they can also sell the Epic 4G at list price. The best part is the Epic 4G supports WiMax so you can get 3-6 mbps avg download speeds.

It's been $99.99 with contract at Best Buy for about 3 weeks now.

Yeah, but places like Best Buy will price match that and I don't think I would ever purchase a phone from radio shack. I won't even buy a $10 tube of thermal paste from that place.

This is a pretty nice phone and given Sprint Prepaid Group's strategy as of late, this should come to Virgin or Boost Mobile. Clearwire will keep WiMAX running until at least 2015, and maybe longer, as it builds out its TD-LTE Advanced network it may not need the spectrum until after 2015 or at all since they have gobs of it. In some markets WiMAX can run upwards of 10mbps.
