    Wonderful (NOT), thats

    Flexible & Fair SprintPCS Free & Clear

    $65 for 600 minutes. $65 for 1100 minutes

    $50 for 450 minutes $50 for 700 minutes

    $40 for 400 minutes $40 for 500 minutes

    $70 for 700 minutes

    $90 for 1100 minutes


    Unless you know you only go over one or two months a year and use less
    than 300 minutes other months, the Flexible & Fair Plan could be neither
    can cost you a lot more.

    In which case it could be a MAJOR PRICE INCREASE.

    OK Robert M[oron]. That is not an increase as nobody has to take that
    plan. They can continue to use their current plan. What a bafoon!

    Absolutely agree with you Tom. SPCS has offered a cheap way for users of the
    lowest minute plan to call more, if and when they need to. If the user finds
    he needs more minutes on his plan in the future, he can always bump up his
    plan to the next level.

    Well, I can see that you haven't kill filtered me Phillipe, as you have
    constantly said you have ...

    From SPCS's PR -

    "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. "

    As said above, the customer does not have to renew or extend their AA, if
    they make the changes within the first 3 months of signing up. They should
    know by then how many minutes they need on their account.

    300 minutes for $35 and if you go over by 300 minutes, that's $150 for
    600 minutes without the plan.
    300 minutes for $35 and if you go over by 150 minutes, that's $95 for
    450 minutes without the plan.
    300 minutes for $35 and if you go over by 400 minutes, that's $190 for
    700 minutes without the plan.
    300 minutes for $35 and if you go over by 800 minutes, that's $350 for
    the 1100 minutes without the plan.

    This new plan is not intended to replace the existing plans, but to
    help people who may have a high usage one month (say they go on
    vacation) occasionaly.

    Spending over 6 months, $35, $35, $35, $65 (vacation, used 575
    minutes), $35, $35 is a total of $240 but if they only had 300 for $35
    a month, then the total would be $210 for the base plan, plus $110 in
    overage for the 275 extra minutes (totalling $350.
    If they went on the $65 / month plan, then they'd spend $390.

    It is not a "major price increase" as you like to call it, mainly
    because it was not meant to replace the existing plans.

    CREATE a fake issue why dont you. READ WHAT I SAID:

    Unless you know you only go over one or two months a year and use less
    than 300 minutes other months, the Flexible & Fair Plan could be neither
    can cost you a lot more.

    In which case it could be a MAJOR PRICE INCREASE.

    Did you miss the words "know" and "could" ???? Or are you just trying
    to make this new plan out to be a big deal when its just a smoke screen
    to cover the adulteration of SprintPCS rules. No more changing a plan
    without getting a new contract. THATS THE BIG CHANGE.

    And osiris has suddenly disappeared.

    From the press release :

    "Sprint PCS Fair & Flexible is a tiered pricing plan providing a base
    300 Anytime Minutes for $35 a month, then automatically adds more
    Anytime Minutes in 25- or 50-minute increments for just $2.50.
    (Pricing may vary.)"

    What makes you think that NONE of use will qualify for the 2.50 for
    50-minute increment?? You seemed to leave that out of your
    calculations.

    No, It's just rational thought that makes them so. They meet a=20
    different need than the Free & Clear plans, so a direct, dollar-for-
    dollar comparison is invalid.

    If you need the flexibility of a plan that changes with you without=20
    incurring astronomical fees, this is it. Why roll minutes over if=20
    you never have to pay for them in the first place?
