    Re: Qwest migration to Sprint

    They are migrating largest markets last and finishing by early fall so
    you'll hear something soon, most rcent offer is weak, a free 120C.

    ADVICE-= don't even listen to what you hear through the "regular"
    sales channels. Qwest has one of the best Loyalty and Retention
    departments in the business, they have always had to because due to
    the size of their customer base they cannot afford to lose anyone.

    so this is how to get the best deal- call wireless, just dial 611 and
    select you wish to "remove all or part of your services" verify that
    the agent you speak with works in "loyalty" if they don't ask to be
    transferred. When you have a loyalty agent on line, advise them you
    are looking to leave qwest because of a better deal with Verizon
    (because you mentioned them) with regard to a phone, price plan cost,
    or coverage, whatever. This department has access to promos that no
    other department does, everyhitng from "loyalty Price Plans" to
    monetary credits, and free phones.they will make you an offer based on
    whatever concern you table: All require at least one year comitment.
    When/if you migrate to one of the freedom plans you WILL have to
    upgrade your handset if purchased prior to aug 24 2003, with few
    excpetions because OTA capability is required and that is the date Q
    started shipping OTA capable hndsts except for a few models.
    Also consider that nobody knows what is going to happen when verizon
    takes over in a few months.

    None of the new plans have evening hours either and that stinks, that
    was probably the biggest reason I stayed with qwest as long as I did,
    the 7pm evening hours that are going away when you migrate.

    Take my advice about calling loyalty though. I never paid more then
    50.00 for a phone and my last two were a 720 and a 60I

    good luck

    Re: Qwest migration to Sprint

    My limited understanding of the issue is that Qwest will or already has
    migrated folks over to the Sprint network, and made arrangements for
    Sprint to provide service in areas where Qwest had service and
    Sprint did not.

    In other words, Qwest wireless will continue to exist, and sell service
    under the Qwest wireless name. They will, of course, be resellers of
    Sprint at that point, because they have sold all of their native wireless
    licenses and network.

    If you're completely happy, things will probably stay more or less the
    same. In other words, I'm not sure what this change means for Qwest
    wireless subscribers. One good thing is that you have Sprint's
    nationwide network so Qwest now has nationwide plans.

    -Dan

    PS: Honestly I have no idea how this will impact your service for the
    good or the bad. If you stick with Qwest, it would be nice to
    hear what you think of it when the transition is complete.

    AMEN It must have taken me 30 calls to qwest to get to the RIGHT
    loyalty transition person!

    But when you get the RIGHT person they will give away the farm. They
    offered me 1000 anytime for $26/mo. THEN they offered me 600at with
    3000n&w shared (with up to 7 phones) for $35 a month! WOW! I took the
    shared. We had 3 phones on the old network, so I added 2 more for
    free, Why not. This plan includes CALLING YOUR HOME LANDLINE NUMBER
    as one of the family plan numbers (a rarity amung wireless providers).

    I think this has 7pm nites. I'll have to check. I logged on to qwest
    to check my bill and it says $53 a month for 5 phones. Either its
    wrong for what they quoted me, or its more for some reason of having 5
    phones. I'll have to check. Either way 5-7 phones for $35 OR for $53
    is a GREAT deal figuring free calling to home landline number.

    I can post the many 800 numbers i've collected in my 30 or so calls to
    em, trying to find the RIGHT person in "transitions" that knew about
    loyalty transitions.
