    I have a 7-cents-a-minute anytime plan on my home line, which is supposedly
    only available to SprintPCS customers. The normal 5.95/mo fee is credited
    each month, and since I don't use that line for long distance the bill was
    zero each month....until recently.
    Sprint has added a "carrier access fee" (or something like that) of .99/mo.
    After I got the fee for the second time I called and they credited me, since
    I hadn't made any long distance calls. This month, however, they won't
    credit me, and so I switched to another plan that has no monthly fees at
    all. The per-minute rate is higher, but since I don't use it I don't care.
    The line is used for fax and local dial-up only. So, if you see the new
    charge on your bill, and don't use the 7-cents plan much, you can change.

    Another option..
    Cancel long distance totally (may cost a small fee from your phone
    provider) or don't use it at all and use a cheap calling card? You
    can get a card anywhere. The price and "plans" very greatly. The
    best I have ever found by far are from Costco and SamsClub. 3.x cents
    a minute, they are rechargable, no monthly fees, no taxes, no
    surcharges, and no time limits or iniital connection charges what so
    ever. It is a true 3.x cents a minute. If you are using a manual fax
    machine you can dial the required numbers manually and start the fax,
    if using software, you can program in the sequence of codes required
    by the card. Either way, much cheaper, no seperate monthly bill, and
    you can use the card for long distance from any phone you desire (pay
    phones operators can add a charge of 35 cents though). Just a
    thought.

    And don't dare ask a *2 person about it, because none of the
    integrated/cross-trained folks know about it.

    Why the hell would you call PCS with a landline LD question?

    Actually, I know why YOU would, but I question why normally-functioning
    people would.

    Call me whatever you want, it doesn't bug me.

    Phillipe will find something to say whether or not anyone replies to him.

    And he's posted totally incorrect information in replies to newcomers to the
    group in the past, so some of us do feel it necessary to correct him.

    I'll try to cool it, because I've posted a lot of stuff in the past week or
    two.

    (sorry, forgot to address this in the other post)

    I wouldn't call the LD people with a wireless question. I've used several
    companies over the years, for cellular service. All except Northcoast are/
    were wireless divisions of big telecomm firms that provided local and/or
    long-distance landline services. I've never been able to call Alltel's,
    GTE's, or Verizon's wireless division to get info about LD or local
    wireline services, and vice versa. This was pointed out by whoever posted
    the large bunch of AT&T customer contact numbers off their website.

    Which is not to say that it wouldn't be logical to think that it'd work
    that way. I'm just saying it DOESN'T work that way, and, unless I'm mistaken,
    never has with most carriers, with the exception that some, like SBC, will be
    willing to activate the disparate services for you. I guess that begs the
    question of whether I could have called SBC Ameritech customer service to
    ask CS questions about an existing Cingular account...

    SprintPCS commercials claim Sprint (unlike AT&T) is now fully integrated
    wireline and wireless.

    Thanks for agreeing those claims are false.

    The apologists continue to lie. I post answers that Apologists dont want you to
    know. How to get a phone repaired, how to get a retention deal, when to call

    Well, duh.. they are, if in fact they were made. I still don't recall hearing
    the claims made, I've asked you where they were made, and you never bothered
    answering, perhaps because you don't have an answer.

    Dense !

    On the Fox Football game commercials, and on the website link bottom of page
    "salesguy" commercial.

    We posted this yesterday for you, but as an apologist you ignore facts that
    contradict your rosy glasses view of the world.
