    Included? Free&Clear is the brand name for our standard=20
    plans, so yeah, it's included.

    Are you talking about Free&Clear America? The roaming=20
    option? It depends on which market they're in.

    As Rob suggested, the 5 to 10 dollar fee is for Free & Clear America.

    Free&Clear America (F&CA) was a whole set of plans when we=20
    first introduced it. After running that way for a quarter,=20
    it was decided that this made things to complicated for=20
    customers (not that they *couldn't* understand it, only=20
    that they wouldn't bother to try). So we instead turned it=20
    into a no-obligation add-on.

    The availability of it, though, depends upon what precise=20
    market you're in. I may be mixing up conversations, but I=20
    think you mentioned NYC, right? If so, then F&CA *is*=20
    available in your market. $5/month and covers all roaming=20
    charges, plus Long Distance while roaming.

    But CALL INTO CUSTOMER CARE to find out for sure. They=20
    will look at your parents' "CSA" and determine=20
    availability.

    And that has NEVER been included as a normal plan until it was
    introduced in the last many months.

    $5 or $10 for the F&CA option? I've only seen it listed as one price ...

    It appears that you are in an affiliate area, but it is available. $10/mo
    for the F&CA option. Unfortunately, only 100 minutes are available to use
    for roaming, but that's not bad, as it averages out to $0.10/min, which
    includes LD.

    Not that I know of. Free & Clear (no "America" after it) is the name
    given to plans that allow you go anywhere Sprint has PCS service and
    make calls. All of the US (including Alaska and Hawaii) are "local"
    calls on your Sprint phone while on the PCS network.

    This type of plan has been offered since 1998 and to this day, the plans
    you see on the website (except the ones marked "areawide" which are
    regional-only plans), are considered Free & Clear.

    "Free & Clear America" refers to the add-on you can attach to a Free &
    Clear plan that extends your coverage to points OFF the Sprint PCS
    network, when roaming on other carriers. For a while, the add-on was
    $10 and gave you only 50 minutes per month of roaming. Now, if you're
    in a Sprint corporate market, the add-on is $5 and allows you to use up
    to half of your minutes every month while roaming. Affiliate markets
    are a bit stricter... the add-on is usually either $5 or $10 and gives
    you 100 minutes of your plan for roaming, in these cases.

    Actually, Free & Clear America was initially a separate plan available
    in corporate markets. It was an additional $10 over the equivalent
    Free & Clear plan, but it was not a plan option, it was a completely
    different plan (thus a new contract). They offered this for a few
    months and then opted to offer it as a plan option for $5 in corporate
    markets and $10 in affiliate markets that are willing (I believe some
    do not have the option at all).
