    Up until last December (2003), I had two phones (one for me, one for my
    daughter) on a shared minutes plan which began in April of 2003. I believe
    the contract would have expired either this past April, or at most, next
    April (2005). I still have to dig out the paperwork for the original
    contract.

    In December, I added a 3rd phone to this plan (for my sister). I gave my
    number and my phone to my sister and took a new number and new phone for
    myself, and signed a "2 Year PCS Advantage Agreement".

    The arrangements with my daughter and my sister are not working out, and I
    was hoping I could cancel their phones, either now, or at the latest, next
    April. So, I logged on to the Sprint site to check the plan status and find
    that all three phones have an expiration date of 12/20/05! Can that be
    right? Does adding a new phone and number really extend the contract on
    existing phones?

    That seems logical if you bought a new phone in the process and took the
    discount.

    Log in on each phone number separately to see what the exp date is.

    NO NO NO NO NO.... I added a second line and saw the same thing - it is
    the way the website works, and I confirmed that my original line is still
    OUT OF CONTRACT. When you log on to the website the contract end date
    displayed is the end date *for the phone number you entered.* You can call
    *2 to confirm this. I consider this to be a bug on Sprint's website, or at
    best a horrible design decision, and I reported it a couple weeks ago when
    I activated my new line. I'd complain to Sprint if I could figure out who
    to complain to.

    No it doesn't. The existing contract end dates do NOT change. It's a problem
    with the Sprint web site.

    **************************
    There have been three phones added to my account, all without
    contracts. However, the Sprint PCS web site shows all three with
    contacts. A call to Sprint PCS Customer Service cleared my concerns.
    Apparently, there is a discrepancy between that is shown on the Sprint
    PCS web site concerning accounts and contracts and what is true. I do
    not have contracts on those three phones. However, the Sprint PCS web
    site shows that I do.

    For both lines?

    If you signed a contract for both phones that you bought, then yes.
    Buying a phone at a discount extends the contract. If you bought the
    phone that you kept for yourself at FULL price, and you signed no
    contract for that line, then you have a case.
