Do you think the $50 dollar rebate you get in all the stores will still work on this deal?
Might they possibly send it with the phone, or might there be somewhere online?
that'd be a sweet deal if you could take another fifty off.

Was anyone able to get a screen shot of the A460 for 60bux? I'm sure they have a few more at my local CC

do u need to sign up for sprint service to get these prices or can existing customers just buy this and not worry about getting roped into some kind of contract?

Has anyone been able to get these prices in store? The A460 has a price of $99 (with $50 rebate for new account). If so can you scan the receipt?

I just placed order for the A460 at circuit city over the phone. $59.52 shipped. I may have to pop by Costco this week and check their deal for comparison. The only part of the package that would interest me would be the car charger, since I wouldn't use a holster and I'm picky about the headset/earpiece thing. If Costco turns out to be the better deal, I'll just return the CC one back to the store.

seriously guys...don't get the A460.
Reception is really really bad. (I once tried it for only 4 hours and return it right away!!!!)
Besides, A460 is now discontinue.

Sanyo 4900 is bit large. If you have huge hand and clearity + speaker phone is what you need, then you can't go wrong w/ it.

Actually, I believe Timeport has much better reception then A460.

FWIW: Amazon.com has the 4900 for $20 after the rebates.
$80 from Amazon and $50 from Sprint, of course this is for new service activations.

I went to Circuit City last night and tried to get a match or something and the guy said he couldn't do it because it was a circuit city but if he was at his store he could get me the price, so I asked him when he would be at his store and he tried to change the subject that his manager wouldn't let him give me that price. Then he started telling me that ordering it online would be risky and buying it locally (For $80 more) would be the best way to go. Needless to say I wasn't to impressed with the Sprint PCS circuit city representative there.

That LG5350 looks pretty cool too. Decisions decisions.

Best Buy matched the price of the Sanyo 4900 for $105. I just printed out the price from the circuit city website and showed it to Best Buy last night.

Out of all those phones the Sanyo 4900 is the best. Best reception and features (voice memo, call screening, upload images and midis to phone, and great speakerphone). If you can get over the design on the phone, you won't be dissapointed with it. Can anyone tell me the prices at Costco?

Askani : They didn't have the 4900 at my costco. Only the A500, 460 and 5350.
