While this handset didn’t receive as much fanfare as its predecessor, it’s still a decent upgrade for those who are currently on Sprint. Is it worth switching carriers? Well, that’s entirely up to you but we’re thinking it might be smarter to hold off for, oh we don’t know, the Palm Pre perhaps. If you were a big fan of the original Instinct and your calendar is full of giant red X marks however, today is your day. For $129.99 with a two-year contract and mail-in-rebate, this slim touchscreen phone can be yours. The S30 is much like its older sibling but Samsung has trimmed a lot of the fat and made the UI a little more user friendly. The glitches and bugs that plagued the first Instinct should be ironed out now as well. If you were looking to upgrade, now would be the time — but before you rush out to the Sprint store, you might want to check out Best Buy first if you’re planning to snag one along with an Everything Plan.
