Can you not read? He very clearly said "Walmart HAD it at $575", you asked him for links, and he got them for you. You didn't have the courtesy to give him some rep, or even just thank him. Instead, you say "the deal is no longer valid", which he (and everyone else but you) already figured out when he said "had".

1) It doesn't change that you read it wrong

2) You still didn't say thanks for replying to you with the link you asked for

3) He was simply saying this deal wasn't the "best" you could get, based on a very recent deal.

The vast majority of SDers are looking for the BEST deal and don't mind waiting a few days or weeks for it. They also don't want to buy something if there is even a chance it may go on sale for less any time soon.

You my friend are in the minority here. You were wrong, and I think most SDers would agree with me.

Yes, but with certain sites kicking back up to 6%, the unlocked device would have been a better deal.

Can you give hint who was doing 6%, abbreviation maybe ?

This can't be used on Sprint BYOD plan I assume, since it is not unlocked model
