Pre-order the HTC EVO 3D on Amazon for $179

If you’re planning to purchase the HTC EVO 3D at launch, you may want to take Amazon up on this pre-order offer.  If you remember last year’s launch of the HTC EVO 4G, you’ll recall how impossible it was to find the handset in Sprint stores for over two weeks.  There’s no guarantee the HTC EVO 3D will be met with the same amount of enthusiasm as the original, but it’s always a good idea to be prepared.

Pre-ordering the HTC EVO 3D from Amazon will set you back $179.99, if you qualify for an upgrade and sign a new two-year contract.  Surprisingly, Amazon is also slashing the full retail price of the HTC EVO 3D down to $469.99 from Sprint’s recommended $499.99 price point. This is certainly great news for current Sprint customers who do not qualify for a handset upgrade. Amazon doesn’t mention when you will receive your pre-ordered EVO 3D, but we’re assuming you should get it right around June 24th.

We’re curious; are any of you switching to Sprint just to get your hands on the HTC EVO 3D?

    If you guys are going to post this you need to make sure that you say that price is for new customers./

    • Deter

      absolutely agree. i was really pissed when i couldn’t get the droid charge for my wife on memorial day without paying $70 more than your post told me it would be because you said the price was good for new or upgrades but it was only for new.

      The price is for everyone. The image may be a little misleading since the layout of the Amazon page changes depending on how to arrive to the page. Clicking the source link presents you more options.

        NIck, that price is not for everyone. Once you select the phone you have to add info and they ask for you upgrade information. If you aren’t eligible it will not let you go any further.

          If you re read the article you will see that is do mention the price for current contract holders that are not eligible for an upgrade.

        I know your life is so boring you feel good coming here to talk about sprint and the Evo 3d. This device will set a standard RATHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT your simply a troll someone that hates everything Evo or sprint related. There is no excuse for you or your comments but keep em coming they are entertainment. The Evo 3d is PISSING ALL OVER ANYTHING ON VERIZON AND SPRINT IS PISSING ON VERIZON TO…And after today everyone will see another great dualcore device announced on sprint. Bottomlime if your not walking around somewhere on this earth toting a sprint device espically an Android device then you really don’t have anything.

          Dick I swear to bob you I’m am THIS close to drop- kicking your dumb a$$. What are you trying to accomplish with the constant nut lickin of the EVO double d’s? If I ever met your whack a$$ I would flick your right nut in constant repetition.

      Over-hyped? Everyone’s been talking about the Sensation so much lately that the EVO 3D probably feels excluded. Yes, Sprint users are going to be drooling over this phone, but they have quite a few good reasons to do so.

      At least the EVO 3D isn’t over priced. Verizon should be taking noted here. 4G phones do not need to be prices over $200. There are very few people willing or even able to justify spending $250 on a phone. $179 with a new two year contract is an amazing deal for a phone with incredible specs.

        I am currently on Verizon and will switch to Sprint for either the EVO 3D or the Photon just announced. Verizon costs to much people…I have to pay for my house note.

        • http://none Chris

          Good Move…. I just pre ordered my Evo yesterday. The Photon looks/ sounds great but I was not willing to wait any longer for a new phone.

    I’m planning on switching from AT&T to sprint for the Evo3D. However, since I get okay ish signal in my house, and great signal around town, I would be willing to stick it out on AT&T if they would announce a release date on a AT&T Sensation or Galaxy S2.

    • http://Website RockinEvo

      I think they released it early at Walmart (Sensation )

      • http://Website AceoStar

        That’s for the Tmobile sensation

        • RonWeez

          Have they actually released it yet?

  • http://Website batsugun

    I got the evo 4g on launch day. I had screen separation and grounding problem. I’m happy with my evo 4g. I will defiantly get the evo 3d but ill wait to make sure no problems at launch.

    I plan on switching from Big Red(Verizon) to get the Evo3d. Not only cause I think its an awesome phone but there voice and data plans are a better deal then Verizon. No rush though have to let those bugs get worked out.

    • http://Website Gee

      Make sure to check if Sprint voice and data coverage is okay in your area. Sprint’s coverage has gone to shit in certain areas over the last half year.

      Good luck with that switch i tried sprint out for 6 month an what a joke their so called 4g cant penetrate a dam window an their customer service is fuckin pathetic at best

    This phone is very enticing, but economy+waiting for kinks to work out= not going to early adopt.
