Why did they raise the price for the Pro?

I called sprint back in november and they were selling the phones for 199.

Now that they have more phones they increased it to 299. All the stores around me all raised their prices from 199 to 299.

Luckily I went to the store today and they let me purchase it for 199.

Most people were getting the TP for 299 or around that price. Especially those who purchased their TP from BestBuy.

Supply and demand... they are still selling well, so they are raising the price.

Re: Why did they raise the price for the Pro?

We got the opposite problem in Canada and I'm pissed off. Best Buy is currently offering the TP on a 3 year contract for $150. I bought mine about a month ago and wish I would've known that. Anyway, I think next time a phone comes out I'll wait a few months as it always seems the price drops a lot.
