    Unless you need more than three phones, the standard retention
    plan I have is a better deal:
    2 phones, 750 anytime, unlimited n/w, 8 pm start, $60.

    Sure it is. But not just anybody can call up and get a retention deal.
    ANYBODY can call up and get the Fair & Flexible Family plan.

    But, since we are talking what one of us can get and not the other ... I
    get a 17% discount on top of that $70 base price because of my large
    employer :-) That means I get this deal for $58 and I am still free to
    add more phones on at the rate of $10 ($8.30 for me) / month / phone.

    And best of all, your "overage" is 100 minutes fir $5. The overage on the
    retention plan is 40 cents/minute. *Much* better deal.

    Re: Fair & Flexible Family Plan

    I switched to this plan a few weeks ago. It's a great deal for me and my
    girlfriend. We started with Sprint PCS two months ago and had the Free and
    Clear America 1100 minute plan with 1 add a phone. Our total was about $85
    a month. Now, we pay $70 and if we by chance we use 1100 minutes in the
    month, we will still end up paying about $85. It's a win-win situation for
    us. Of course, we can also add lines for $10 instead of $20. That is a
    nice bonus.

    I jumped on this the day I heard about it. In fact, when I called Sprint to
    change over to it, the rep didn't even have it in her computer yet. I had to
    wait on hold about five minutes while she checked into it. We have four phones
    on our account so the lower add-a-phone rate saves us $20 a month from the one
    we were going to change to ((Fair & Flexible option 2)). I also like the extra
    100 AT minutes. I've since seen ads in both print and on TV. In the TV ad, they
    updated the Fair & Flexible commercial where the Sprint guy (does he have a
    name?) steps off the bus. It's highlighted on the Sprint PCS web site now, too.

    Hi,

    I actually think you get 200 minutes / $5 from 1100 to 2100 minutes of
    usage. That is only 2.5 cents / min!

    On another topic... I received an email from Sprint today. They are
    offering an UNLIMITED local plan for $50 per month (long-distance is so much
    per min). You can add long-distance to your minutes for $5 per month. So
    at $55, that isn't too bad for an unlimited local plan!

    Regards,
    Thomas

    Yeah. That's what got me to switch from F&C to F&F. 5c/minute on overages. Even
    if they bump you up 100 minutes it's still only $5.

    My employer rates only a 5% discount. :-(

    Not if you don't need that many minutes. I've never gone over my
    750 minutes.

    I have three phones on a couple of plans and it would make a lto of
    sense to be able to share the three phones on this type of pla.
    Only one Question:
    One of my phones is used primarilly in another State (kid at College).
    I woder if SprintPCS would allow such a sharing plan with one phone
    ofut of State. Also It doesn't look like this is the sort of plan
    wheereby one can roam Continental USA. Can this be upgraded?

    Scroll down the webpage a bit further, you will see the F & CA option
    available for $5 / mo., if you are in a SPCS corporate area. If you are in
    an affiliate market, then the price will be between $7 - $10/mo.

    As long as that third phone is in network, you bet you can share. If it
    is out of network, you can still share, as long as you get the F&F
    America plan [$5 / month in a corporate market] and as long as the
    roaming minutes are no more than 50% of the total minutes used.

    I just called *2 and changed to this plan, too. F&FAfF, or Fair &
    Flexible America for Families. With 4 lines, lots of options, and using
    about 1100 anytime minutes/month, this will cost about $25-30 less per
    month than before. My last plan change was in Dec. 2003.
