    The rule is (was?) that for an existing customer to receive as a rebate the
    same discount a new customer gets when buying their phone, your existing phone
    had to be in continuous use on your account for 18 months.

    With the changes to the New phones purchase web page as of April 14;
    Rebate now says:

    Mail-in Rebate: Customers qualify for rebate if account is kept active for 30
    consecutive days. In certain markets, Sprint PCS Clear PaySM customers qualify
    for a mail-in rebate if the account is kept active for 60 days after the first
    invoice date and does not have any unpaid past-due amounts at the end of this
    period. Requires purchase of eligible Sprint PCS Phone by 5/15/04 with
    activation no later than 5/31/04 on any Sprint PCS Free & ClearSM Plan. Rebate
    may not exceed total purchase price of phone.

    NO WHERE DOES IT SAY NEW ACCOUNT, NEW SERVICE or NEW NUMBER.

    Re: 18 month rule no longer applies ?

    I actually contacted C.S. and asked them what is the mail in rebate amount
    i.e. would it be the same as the instant rebate received by the "new"
    customers/activation.
    For example the Sanyo 8100 instant rebate is $150, what is the "mail in
    rebate" amount.
    Has anyone found out if the "mail in rebate" is the same amount as the
    instant rebate amount ? ( did not get answer)
    I think the C.S. also mentioned something about I have to have minimum a
    $45 plan.

    Three points.

    Max SprintPCS rebate on 8100 has been $130.

    Other phones $150 rebate with 2 year agreement
    $100 rebate with one year agreement

    Instant rebate for New Customers or new line of service, mail in rebate
    for existing customers if qualified.

    But it doesn't say that on the web.

    "Mail-in Rebate: Customers qualify for rebate if account is kept active
    for 30 consecutive days. In certain markets, Sprint PCS Clear PaySM
    customers qualify for a mail-in rebate if the account is kept active for
    60 days after the first invoice date and does not have any unpaid
    past-due amounts at the end of this period. Requires purchase of
    eligible Sprint PCS Phone by 5/15/04 with activation no later than
    5/31/04 on any Sprint PCS Free & ClearSM Plan. Rebate
    may not exceed total purchase price of phone."

    NO WHERE DOES IT SAY NEW ACCOUNT, NEW SERVICE or NEW NUMBER or 18 months.

    Well then SprintPCS certainly has obscured any possible way to
    understand it, because IF you are purchasing adding a new line of
    service then YOU WILL be purchasing and activating.

    If you are not activating upon purchase then what???

    IT DOESN'T SAY. Other than you get the rebate.

    quit insulting and answer the question. If you buy a phone with a new
    line of service over the web then it is activated for you.

    And are you confessing for Harrassing Justin?

    I think this is worded very confusingly. It is clear that the "instant
    savings" are for only new customers or customers activating a new line
    of service... but it says nothing in relation to a condition for the
    mail-in rebate. It could be read that if a phone is purchased without
    activation, than new or existing customers could apply for a mail-in
    rebate.

    Why don't you answer some of the questions you've never answered, like
    how you got billed by AT&T when you supposedly never had service
    with them? Why don't you acknowledge slamming AT&T for fraud while at the
    same time encouraging posters here to switch to AT&T? Pot, kettle, black.
