    I logged onto the Sprint PCS website today for the first time in quite
    awhile, so this may be old news, and I apologize if it is. But Sprint
    is now offering an incentive to sign up for auto Bill Pay and paperless
    billing. Up to a $10 service credit ... $5 for signing up for paperless
    billing, and $5 for setting up autopay.

    I don't know about you, but $5 seems a little light in comparison to the
    nightmare you could have with Sprint doing Auto Payment out of your bank
    account or credit card.

    It saves Sprint PCS over $2/month by not having to mail out and accept checks
    in by mail.

    So for them to offer you a whole $5 for their saving many multiples of that
    EVERY YEAR is not prudent in view of the protection against billing errors
    provided by not allowing automatic charging to your credit card or checking
    account.

    Clearly the move is aimed at making Sprint some more money (or saving it, in
    any case). But... how much is your time worth? Many people would willingly
    go to automatic billing just to avoid having to spend the time each month
    sitting down to write a check. I would be more concerned with how much
    leverage you lose by having to get, say, an overage back from Sprint once
    they've already charged your account rather than when they're still waiting
    for you to send them a check.

    If wireless providers go the way that banks have in this country, soon
    they'll be charging you to talk to customer service or to _not_ be direct
    billed. Now THAT would be evil.

    SprintPCS tried that already, and happily backed off. They do charge you
    for paying at a SprintPCS store however.

    Actually, we charge you for any payment made when talk to a rep. The
    automated machines, online, via *3, that's free.

    I'm right here, and I don't have a problem with Rob changing his ID to avoid
    Spam ... It's not like he does it THREE to FOUR times a day like you do
    Phillipe.

    LMAO Phillipe. You really do take the cake ...

    At least they accept payment at their retail locations, unlike some of the
    competition. And those that do typically charge a fee for doing so.

    New Alias? I'm still using the same name, hypocrite. Not that it's any of
    your business, hypocrite, but I'm on a different PC than normal.
