I just signed up for Sprint again and was wondering if this was a good deal.
Getting Fair and flex for $35 and then for $20 I get 1/2 min for roaming,
7pm nights, unlimited Picture mail and video mail (but don't have video
camera), unlimited web. I think unlimited text messaging too. Also got a
Sanyo 8200 free. they called it the fun bundle for $20. Also getting a 11%
discount off bill because I work for a certain company. So is this a really
as good as they say it is? Oh yeah, my local sprintpcs is an franchise, not
company.

Yea, I'd say it's a good deal.

Sounds like a hell of a good deal to me. But, I would call up *2, get a
rep on the line, and go over the plan details with a fine toothed comb
to make sure this is what you're getting. I've never trusted the
franchise resellers any further than I can throw them, especially
considering that they are interested solely in earning commissions off
your activation, and once you're activated, they're done with you
(unless of course you want to buy overpriced low-quality non-oem
aftermarket accessories).

Also, if it looks like you're going to go over 300 minutes consistently
every month, then I would make an effort to find a fixed Free and Clear
plan that suits your calling patterns best, and switch over to that.
Fair and Flexible is good for people who plan to stick to 300 minutes
and under but only occasionally go over their minute allotments, or if
their usage month-to-month is completely unpredictable. But, if you
know you're going to use about 600 minutes a month, every month,
consistently, then it's cheaper in the long run to get the 700 minute
free and clear plan for $50 a month, and give yourself 100 minutes of
wiggle room, than it is to pay $65 for 600 minutes on Fair & Flexible
(or worse, pay $67.50 if you go just one minute above that).

I called Sprint to make sure I had all I was suppose to have and they didn't
show most on acct. So I went back to the sprint store and on their computer
it showed I did. Anyway with the "fun bundle" I get with any f&f or FCA
plan of $50 -50% roaming minutes, free unlimited PCS to PCS, Unlimited
Vision Pack,$5 of download a month, 7pm nights and free activation and
camera phone. says its only available in SD or Sioux City IA. I must say
so far the service is much better then Cellular one.
