    I've been reading these responses and have a couple of additional questions.
    I have been a SPCS user for about 3 years now and now big issues and I am a
    low user.
    I still have a plan of $29.99 for 300 anytime, and unlimited n/wknd and PCS
    to PCS which is refunded each month.
    I do qualify for the 18 month exchange and would like to do it.

    My questions:

    Is it better to go to a store or to go to *2 and talk to a person?

    Will I be able to renew at this rate and the free PCS? I really do not need
    more minutes.

    Advice sought -- thanks in advance.

    Mike, in order to qualify for the rebate, you will need to boost your plan
    to $35 a month, and I don't believe PCS2PCS is included, which would cost
    you $5/ mo. more. You will also need to sign up for 2 more years. As you are
    a minimum expense customer, there's not much leeway to give you any breaks
    on. So, after one year, it would be $120/yr more in expense, and in two
    years, the addl cost would be $240, higher than the amount of the $150
    rebate.

    As you mentioned you don't need any more minutes, unless your phone is
    dying, I wouldn't do a darn thing. Keep your current plan.

    Thanks. Actually, I checked online and it said I did qualify.
    I think the PCS to PCS with the 29.99 brings it to 34.99 plus fees/taxes,
    then they take the $5 off.
    So, I think I'll try for the new phone and keep the plan???

    No. You must be on a $35.00/month or higher plan to qualify for New For You,
    the 18 month program.

    We're in the same situation. My wife has the $30/300 plan with the $5
    PCS-to-PCS option. It's great for her since she usually only calls other Sprint
    customers. We bought her a phone off eBay for about $50 (a Hitachi P300).

    My $50/700 plan would qualify for NFY. Hers wouldn't.

    $34.99 is not the same as $35. You will need to change your plan to qualify
    for the rebate, $35 is the minimal plan cost for F & F or F & C, and neither
    of the new plans includes PCS2PCS at no additional cost. So new plan would
    be $40 plus taxes & surcharges.

    If it were yours truly with your situation, and didn't need any more
    minutes, I'd just buy a new phone on sale, without utilizing the mail in
    rebate and the requirements needed to qualify for that rebate.

    Even if the phone is dying, if he wants to keep his plan, I would sign
    up for the lockline insurance at $5.00 a month for a couple months, let
    the phone die, then pay $35 to get a replacement.

    Ya know, even though it's in the text of coverage that coverage will be
    afforded for any SPCS phone, no matter how old that phone is, that just
    sounds like fraud, when it's recommended like that.

    One thing to mention though is that coverage offers a comparable phone, not
    replacement cost and a new phone, so when they do send out a phone, it will
    be reconditioned (used) and may not be to the liking of the policyholder.

    '
    When I plug in my zip code and phone number, the page says the plan has to
    be at least $35 or higher and I'm in a SPCS corporate area.

    Not me ... I could give two hoots about the rebate deal ... and the
    additional penny.
