I got mine at BestBuy. It was literally free. Not even a set up charge. They were very knowledgable at the store I went to. Radio Shack and Sprint stores were $59 and $79 respectively for the exact same phone -- but only BB had purple.
I am not a blackberry/websurfing/gaming/navigation type of phone user. For voice and text, I haven't found a better or more durable phone than a Samsung. I've traded up every other year (to free phone under contract) and my last three have been Samsungs.
I hate AT&T, too, BTW.

I bailed on Sprint earlier this year from having them for 9 years! Customer Service was a pain. I went with Verizon...
As for phones via Sprint,
Stick with Samsung or Sanyo for durability/call clarity.

I do agree Sprint is horrid. I received a few bills with random charges over $200. As soon as I could I switched to Verizon. Customer service on Sprint was a joke. I know others who left Sprint for AT&T.

That being said -- since you are done with AT&T -- I will tell you that the Palm Pre from Sprint is the best phone they have sold in a long time. I generally don't care for Sprint phones at all, but the Pre is terrific if you are interested in a phone that is very data capable. If you prefer Blackberry, then check out the Tour.
As for recommending a more basic Sprint phone, the Rumor II isn't too bad and it is very much designed for texting purposes.
Good Luck in your phone search.

And I totally disagree w/ those that are bashing Sprint. I've been w/ them for a long time and they are the cheapest plans hands down.
Customer Service is fine by me. I don't need it often but when I do, it's fine.
Sprint has that Everthing Moblie now too.
