Never Buy Cell Phone Accessories from Cell Phone Company
I just bought a new phone from boost mobile (HTC EVO Design 4G). And let me tell you. Look at the price there charging you for there accessories. There selling a 32gb memory card there for $99.99 when you can buy the same thing from Amazon for $30.99 with shipping added. How is this junk legal?
You are probaly 1 of the rare ppl who actuly check the prices.....a shop always trys too sell you more, even if the item you are buying is overpriced.
This is why its always better too look for info on internet before gone shopping because a seller will try too squize as much money as posible out of you.
Anyway did they asked you too pay them extra so your phone has garancy for 1 year? Its also a seller trick.
Welcome to the global market. Some companies sell a pair of jeans for 200$ others for 8$.
Good on you for shopping around, but this is no news. Some people like having the "official" components made by a reputable company than those of unnamed brands. I get where these people are sort of coming from as I was like this in my teens myself especially when it came to clothing. I just shop at primark now ^^.

And that's not even the cheapest you can buy HDMI cable online, but wholesalers are intimidating to people for some reason.
Edit: There's a small variance for quality in some things (like jeans, although I wouldn't put it up quite to $200), but a memory card? Where you know they're selling one of only a few brands 90% of the time? Pretty laughable.
