    In addition to the new pricing plan, the PR also includes the following
    text -

    "Sprint PCS New For YouSM Upgrade Program – Existing customers are eligible
    for a mail-in rebate of up to $150 towards the purchase of a new phone, once
    their old phone has been activated on their account for 18 months. "

    "Sprint PCS 14-Day Satisfaction Guarantee – Customers who are not completely
    satisfied with their service can return their undamaged phone for a full
    refund within 14 days of activation. "

    "Sprint PCS Right Plan Promise - Within the first three months of signing a
    Sprint PCS Advantage Agreement, new and existing customers can change their
    service plan to a plan with an equal term without incurring any fees or
    having to extend or renew the agreement"

    In the first paragraph, there is NO mention of any requirements to have
    Vision on the account.

    In the second paragraph, it sounds like SPCS will provide a refund for not
    only the first month billing period, but also the activation fee as well.

    In the last paragraph, no extention of the AA.

    All positive moves by SPCS.

    A very interesting concept. I suspect that it would save me at most $5
    / month on average, so I probably wouldn't jump on it.

    requiring a new contract for service plan changes after 3 months is a step
    backwards.

    I agree..
    Although I believe they had this same policy for quite some time now.
    I got my plan last May and it seems every time they change rate plans
    and options, my older plan looks better and better overall. I have a
    2000 minute F&CA 9pm NW + Vision and P2P. Even though my 'typical'
    usage across my 3 phones is roughly 1200 minutes with little roaming,
    not having to worry about going over and using the phone when and how I
    want to is worth the extra few bucks. At the time, a 600 minute plan
    was only $20 cheaper.

    Getting off topic here but please pipe in with any comments...

    I have come to the point of adding a 4th phone. Initial consulting with
    two different stores gives me the impression that this can not be done
    without paying extra for Vision (currently my three phones get free
    vision) and some sort of contract extension on at least the one
    additional add-on phone but that does not seem to make ANY sense at all
    because what if I choose not to keep my other three after coming to
    term? What plan would that additional add-on phone have at that time?
    A $20 add on fee + taxes to a cancelled account? I am willing to pay
    full price for a phone if that helps anything.

    I don't see anything about requiring a new contract after three months. It
    only guarantees no such thing for the first three months.

    Seems like every change is a step backwards. Starting when
    they charged $10/month if you didnt get a contract, then did away with
    FIMF, etc, etc.

    Yup, you're caught by SprintPCS' desire to make any transaction force a
    contract extension, as a possible means to reduce CHURN, currently at
    34.8% per year.

    But with WLNP in effect, it's the only way carriers can force their
    customers to stay with them, I'm still suprised that there are no 3+
    year contracts for consumers yet with any of the carriers.

    I agree with that, but it's still a step backwards, and could force
    extra churn.
