Discount shows up automatically when you put in your zipcode. It says put in zipcode to check special offers. I ordered Skyrocket yesterday for $149.

I checked out the skyrocket. It's okay. There was a little lag when I was using the device.

"Oh, and about the special online discounts, the Skyrocket, which features 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display and 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and a gig of RAM, will set you back $150 with a two-year contract. "

I dont see any discount when I add the phone in shopping cart...

Skyrocket is a only phone that supports both HSDPA+(3G, 21 Mbps which is freaking faster than most of 3G phones) and LTE(4G).
