    Hello,

    My wife is seriously considering moving to Cingular from Sprint but I'd like
    her to stay as I'm tied to Sprint through my employer (that is if I'd like
    to get reimbursed) and the PCS-to-PCS on my plan is helpful to stay within a
    tight budget.

    She is currently spending $50 per month on her plan and wanting to stay
    close to that amount. She has a basic wide area plan without any features
    (e.g. FIMF, Unl SMS, Vision, etc.) What is the best possible retention plan
    possible for her $50 dollars per month to get her to stay?

    Thanks for the advice!

    Matt

    Yea, that's the best way to do it. Have her know what the other plans are,
    so she can pass on some initial details to the rep.

    Any ideas on what we would expect to hear from that call in that price
    range? I'm looking for things like Vision, SMS, etc....

    Thanks,
    Matt

    It'd be real tough, at this point, to try and compare today's retention plans
    with yesterday's.

    Do you want Vision? PCS-to-PCS? What's acceptable for N/W starting time?

    It's gonna boil down to what you need and what you consider a reasonable
    charge.

    It may come down to a 'spreadsheet' exercise....
    Take you bill and breakdown the charges.....for her phone and your phone.
    Then 'model' her charges under the proposed 'Cingular' plan(s)...
    See what type of a Sprint plan it would take to 'beat' it... Then you know
    what you have to 'beat'..

    Also, as you have probably(hopefully!) done, compare coverage in the area(s)
    you cherish most.....
    From city to city across the US, different carriers 'win' in different
    cities...

    Why would she want to go to Cingular anyway... CDMA is better quality GSM.
    Not to mention Cingular has been brought down big time by the AT&T take
    over.

    GSM is NOT a CDMA protocol.
    Cingular bought AT&T not the other way around

    Jeez !!!!!!!! Just call and say you wanna cancel !!!! They'll tell you the
    best they'll do. Why the questions, you think someone on this group knows
    better than the retention person you speak to what they'll offer, Your $50
    per month will only go so far, maybe you can get free 7 pm nights and
    weekends, will that make you happy ?
