    When you say "data," are you talking about using your phone(s) as a modem,
    connected to a laptop? If so, you're talking big bucks.

    4500 minute family plan?

    Hello,

    A sales rep at Sprint mentioned a 4500 minute plan. I don't see it on their
    website - anyone else using this family plan? Any details on how much you
    are paying - and what else is included?

    I think I'd like about 100 text messages on all my phones - not sure if I
    want data but I want data on at least two - I don't need TV but unlimited
    data. I'll want 7PM nights and weekends - mobile to mobile.

    Any info would be helpful.

    No, I have a couple of PPC6700 phones that I'll use to browse the web and
    get e-mail.

    "comcast", your PC's clock is about seven minutes fast.
    It's weird to see a reply to your post listed BEFORE the original post.

    We are going to get the PPC 6700 phones. We want two of them. We are
    planning on getting them soon.

    It's not a matter of your time zone, your clock appears to be running fast.

    As John said, your questions are showing up after the responses.

    My clock is synched with an atomic clock - set for Pacific time. Others may
    reply from different zones or have different issues with their clock or your
    news reader may have issues.

    My clock is 100% correct.

    Re: 4500 minute family plan?

    I guess I'd be more concerned if people were actually responding to my post
    regarding the minutes and the deals. I don't really care about who is
    getting what phone, what the time on my PC.

    I guess that pretty much sums it up, huh?

    If we're not helping *you,* piss on us.

    Re: 4500 minute family plan?

    I'm not trying to piss on anyone but if I posted asking about minutes and
    all I got back was hey you used the wrong tense of a verb, the agreement is
    wrong in your third sentence, you could use a semi-colon blah blah blah - it
    really isn't why I posted here.

    If someone said hey the attachment you included had a virus, I would
    consider that commenting on but the others don't really apply.

    Someone asked for ringtones and I gave a place to get them - I didn't say
    you can get cases for your phone in black - it really doesn't help that
    person much.

    That "Date" line is supplied by your PC.

    Note the 8 minute discrepancy.

    Will someone just post something related to the OP ? If his clock is fast,
    fine, what about his OP?

    Ok, here's a reply to the OP. Obviously, no one here is familiar with that
    plan, or someone would have posted something on it ...

    The Sprint PCS sytem requires a Stratum 1 clock for synchronization at each
    cell site.
    The time on your PCS phones are set by that and you are all walking around
    with an
    "atomic clock" on your hip. I have seen the display turn over a little slow
    (1/2 second)
    when the phone was busy, but it is very close.

    Thomas - the NTP protocol is pretty good as you say but I don't think he was
    referring
    to the internet time as his "atomic clock" There are many clocks out there
    that are set
    by the 60 Khz national time standard transmission and are referred to atomic
    clocks because
    that signal is locked to a cesium clock that takes its feed from (I think) 7
    other cesium quad
    standards from all around the world. I also have a GPS watch (Casio) that
    can be considered
    an atomic clock because the satellites require Stratum 1 clocks to maintain
    their effectiveness

    Sorry for being long winded.
