    Did I understand you to say that if you buy a phone and do the mail-in
    rebate you will have two years added to my plan?
    My plan expired about six months ago--if I buy a phone on the sprintpcs.com
    website or in a store an automatic two year agreement is the kicker?
    If I go the retention route (I have 350 min, FIMF, Free Mobile to Mobile,
    and Night/Weekends unlimited after 9:00, Vision for $35) would I stand a
    chance of getting more minutes and/or photo or video mail added if I went
    with a one year agreement?

    Thanks!

    Yup. $150 credit equals two more years.

    Absolutely not. It's the mail in rebate which extends the agreement. SPCS
    needs to do that to recap their subsidized cost on the phone.

    Personally, a $35 plan customer won't have much leeway with retention, so
    no, I don't think you can get a better deal. There just isn't that much to
    work with on a low cost plan like yours and what you have on your plan
    already. Considering what you have on your plan now, unless you are spending
    a lot on AT minute overages, I wouldn't recommend even calling them.
