    I am a new Sprint customer, in southern California.

    I switched to Sprint from Verizon (with them since 1994) two months
    ago. I switched because of the way Verizon gouges on overtime minutes.

    At the Sprint store I bought a Sanyo 8200 for $59 and the $35/mo
    Fair&Flexible America plan. I agreed to a 24 mo contract.

    I have come to hate the 8200. The sound is harsh and hurts my ear - or
    I can't hear it. And for some reason it makes it much harder to
    understand a caller who has an accent. It is also much harder to dial
    (finding the right button to hit) than is the Moto Startac that I was
    using with Verizon. I still have the Verizon plan going, so a couple
    days ago I tried the Startac again, and it is much more comfortable. Of
    course, it won't take pictures, surf the net, etc.

    I would like to stay with Sprint, but the store tells me that to go to a
    different phone I would have to pay a big "full price." Any suggestions?

    As long as your account is current, eBay is a good venue to sell your
    phone and use the proceeds to buy a new one.

    Big note here.

    I'm in Southern California too, in Victorville. About a 90-minute drive from
    Los Angeles. Our Costco's Sprint kiosk is operated by a Sprint authorized
    retail agent whose policy is NOT to sell phones without a contract or a re-up.
    They just won't do it. I don't know who Costco contracts with down closer to
    the Big City; things might be different down there.

    Costco no longer allows you to buy a phone without having it activated
    in the store.

    Henry, if you are a very new customer, i.e.: 14 days or less, you can return
    the phone back to SPCS and get another model.
