Hello All,

Been reading some postings similar to the situation I'm in. Using Sprint
since '99.

Current plan:
Free & Clear
2000 ATM
3000 Off Peak Option
unlimited PCS to PCS
Nights start at 8pm
Shared by 3 phones $20 for one of the extra phones, one is on for free
Wireless Web
No Vision

For $85.00 a month
2nd Phone $20
Monthly $110.00

From looking at all of the data on a flyer and via the web, none of the new
plans "especially" the Fair & Flexible America... it doesn't look as good as
what I have. What are your opinions?

Secondly, this Vision thing. While my son has a Vision capable phone, I
didn't sign up for it. I'll probably get a new phone, Sanyo 4920 which is
Vision capable. I understand when you buy a Vision phone, you have to get
Vision. They have Vision for free for the first two months (or something to
that effect), can you then drop Vision without getting dinged? Because $15
more a month is too much for something I won't be using. And is that $15 for
every Vision phone?

Thanks for any help or opinions,
Steve Banks

Steve, F & F was not designed for a high minute plan user, but those folks
who use between 300 to 600 minutes a month. SPCS still offers F & C plans.

Don't know where you got that impression. You do not have to add Vision,
when getting a Vision capable phone. There is one situation where you would
need to, and that's if you are going to use their mail in rebate. You can
check and see whether you qualify @ http://pcshandsetupgrade.sprint.com/ .
If you do decide to use their upgrade mail in rebate, be advised that if you
request the $150 rebate, your AA (annual agreement) will extend out for 2
more years. If you decide to go with the $100 rebate, your AA on the phone
will be extended 1 year.

> They have Vision for free for the first two months (or something to

Yes, you can cancel the Vision option on the account, before the two months
are up. As for the cost of Vision, it all depends on what options you are
going to need, i.e.: a picture vault, video mail, text messaging, Ready
Link, multimedia, surfing the web, etc. Depending on the options, you could
be spending much more than $15/mo. on the primary phone on the account. It
would cost less for each sub phone on the account.

Considering the plan you are on now, it looks like you are off the AA, and
on a mo. to mo. plan now. Here's what I'd suggest for your account. Take a
look at your actual usage on your three phones via your bills for the past
three months. Note how many of the 2000 AT minutes are used and N & W
minutes used. Also check the number of minutes used for Wireless Web. If you
are using WW a lot, which uses minutes off your plan, Vision might actually
save you some money.

Once you've determined your average monthly usage, then look at what the
competition is offering in your neck of the woods. I'm guessing you are in
the Sea-Tac area from your IP.

Once you have all this info, and if you want to stay with SPCS, give SPCS a
call on *2. Speaking with CS, and tell the voice prompt, "Cancel", which
will send you to the retention dept. Tell the representative that you've
been happy with SPCS, but are looking at other cell providers and ask
whether SPCS would be able to match some of their pricing.

I took that approach last year, and was able to swing a deal for my three
phones, got onto a 1200 AT minute plan, unlimited N & W, PCS2PCS, F & CA,
for $65/mo. I do use Vision and have that on my primary phone and one other
phone for an additional $20 ($15+$5). I also have a 5% credit applied to the
total of $85, and with taxes & surcharges, my monthly bill is under $93/mo.

OK, just checking. It didn't look terribly kind... compared to what I have.

Bob, you're correct... it was the two year info I was reading for the $150
mail in rebate. So after going to the rebate center this is what it reads
for my phone:
******
To receive rebate customer must:
Sign up and remain on a $35 or higher monthly Sprint PCS Service Plan
Renew a one or two year Sprint PCS Advantage Agreement
Sprint PCS Phone must remain active for a minimum of 30 days
If purchasing a Vision Handset you must sign up for a Vision Service Plan.
Have an account in good standing

The Sprint PCS Phone activated with this Sprint PCS Phone number meets the
18 month age requirement. Yes
******

So you can see where this would be confusing for someone. Before entering
information on this web page it reads, $150 rebate yada... yada... sign a
ONE or TWO year aggreement. There is no mention anywhere I see for the $100
rebate.

I used to use the web quite a bit on my old Sanyos. But that has tapered off
a great deal over the last year or so. My son's phone has a camera, no Ready
Link, the phone I want Sanyo 4920 I would probably use a little more for web
because of the more enhanced features??? And maybe the Business Solutions
might be more appealing.

So the Vision for my lan would be $15 for my phone and $5 for my son, $20 a
month.

My plan is up Nov. 17th.

Bob, what can anyone say... except you are THE Patron Saint of Sprint! You
have been here helping people like me out for (ever since I remember),
which would be for about 5 years. It is appreciated!

I've been reading these responses and have a couple of additional questions.
I have been a SPCS user for about 3 years now and now big issues and I am a
low user.
I still have a plan of $29.99 for 300 anytime, and unlimited n/wknd and PCS
to PCS which is refunded each month.
I do qualify for the 18 month exchange and would like to do it.

My questions:

Is it better to go to a store or to go to *2 and talk to a person?

Will I be able to renew at this rate and the free PCS? I really do not need
more minutes.

Advice sought -- thanks in advance.

No. You must be on a $35.00/month or higher plan to qualify for New For You,
the 18 month program.

We're in the same situation. My wife has the $30/300 plan with the $5
PCS-to-PCS option. It's great for her since she usually only calls other Sprint
customers. We bought her a phone off eBay for about $50 (a Hitachi P300).

My $50/700 plan would qualify for NFY. Hers wouldn't.

Mike, in order to qualify for the rebate, you will need to boost your plan
to $35 a month, and I don't believe PCS2PCS is included, which would cost
you $5/ mo. more. You will also need to sign up for 2 more years. As you are
a minimum expense customer, there's not much leeway to give you any breaks
on. So, after one year, it would be $120/yr more in expense, and in two
years, the addl cost would be $240, higher than the amount of the $150
rebate.

As you mentioned you don't need any more minutes, unless your phone is
dying, I wouldn't do a darn thing. Keep your current plan.

Thanks. Actually, I checked online and it said I did qualify.
I think the PCS to PCS with the 29.99 brings it to 34.99 plus fees/taxes,
then they take the $5 off.
So, I think I'll try for the new phone and keep the plan???

Definitely not. I would keep the plan you have.

You might have to get the phone provisioned for Vision, but that doesn't
mean you have to get the plan, AFAIK. your phone in that case will be
set up for "casual use" which means .02 cents per kilobyte of usage.

This used to be the case, but I would double check with a rep to be certain.

Even if the phone is dying, if he wants to keep his plan, I would sign
up for the lockline insurance at $5.00 a month for a couple months, let
the phone die, then pay $35 to get a replacement.

$34.99 is not the same as $35. You will need to change your plan to qualify
for the rebate, $35 is the minimal plan cost for F & F or F & C, and neither
of the new plans includes PCS2PCS at no additional cost. So new plan would
be $40 plus taxes & surcharges.

If it were yours truly with your situation, and didn't need any more
minutes, I'd just buy a new phone on sale, without utilizing the mail in
rebate and the requirements needed to qualify for that rebate.

Ya know, even though it's in the text of coverage that coverage will be
afforded for any SPCS phone, no matter how old that phone is, that just
sounds like fraud, when it's recommended like that.

One thing to mention though is that coverage offers a comparable phone, not
replacement cost and a new phone, so when they do send out a phone, it will
be reconditioned (used) and may not be to the liking of the policyholder.

When I plug in my zip code and phone number, the page says the plan has to
be at least $35 or higher and I'm in a SPCS corporate area.
