    In contrast to every other cellular carrier where major holidays count as
    weekend minutes, with Sprint, every weekday is "Peak Minutes". Just dial *2 and
    say "Holiday Minutes" to Claire, and she'll be happy to inform you that
    Thanksgiving day is peak minutes.

    Re: Thanksgiving is not a Holiday : SprintPCS

    You'll notice that every carrier uses the terms "Weekday" and "Weekend", not
    peak and off-peak. Where did you get the idea that Thanksgiving THURSDAY is
    a weekend day? If the plans still refered to off-peak minutes like they did
    several years ago, then fine, holidays were considered off-peak. Times and
    plans have changed. You've lost holiday minutes, but instead of paying $30
    for 90 peak minutes, you get 300 weekday minutes. It's more than a fair
    trade. And since you mentioned every other carrier, here's the list:

    Verizon
    Cingular
    AT&T
    T-Mobile
    Nextel

    How many of them have holiday minutes?

    Tried that. I hit 1 for english and then it asks for my pcs number...at
    which time it tells me to dial the customer service number provided by
    my carrier....Then Activation Failed. Something seems amiss. Hopefully I
    can still make calls...lol They could have just said that the monkeys have the day off.....

    You have to ask Claire because there is no one there on the holidays to explain
    to you why an error occured and you can't send your messages like you should
    be able to.

    So what? It's been that way, and it's clearly described in the
    definition of what constitutes "night and weekend" minutes. If it
    bothers you that much, perhaps you should switch carriers. To most of
    the rest of us, it's just not that big a deal.

    Yup, dslfoo assumes facts not in evidence, haven't seen any carrier
    that differentiates for holidays. He/she sure is a whiny li'l biatch,
    isn't she?

    It seems to be the only thing that amuses him on this newsgroup,
    *****ing about Sprint PCS.

    OK Steven, you already knew this, so why are you posting it now.
    Trying to stir up trouble again?

    Actually Verizon did, at least until very recently, call Thanksgiving
    a holiday and it applies to night and weekend minutes. Still, this is
    not new news and is available in all the literature when you sign up
    for service.

    He is just trying to stir up trouble as usual. This has been in the
    literature this way for a long time and it is there to see when you
    start service.
