    Friday I signed up with Sprint for a family plan. (2 phones) I only wanted
    the $59.99 service but salesman (Sprint store) told me that the "Power
    Vision Pack MBU Access" ($15 + $7.50) was free for the first month. It is on
    my contract and salesman said I could cancel during the first month.
    What is this service? And what isn't it? I don't need or want to watch TV or
    download videos to my phone. I wouldn't mind being able to view websites
    from time to time but not on a regular basis. Do I need this "Power Vision"
    plan to see web sites? Is there another plan (pay as you go) for web
    browsing? What about data charges? Are they included in the base price for
    "Power Vision"?
    Thanks for any info you can provide.

    Re: Power Vision Pack - what is it?

    I have regular Vision for $10 per month. This allows me to surf the
    web, text and have picture mail. This may be more the level you are
    looking for. Thing is I don't know if any one will sell it to you now
    that they have Power Vision and you have a power vision phone. I know
    that you can pay for texting as you go. Of course the bigger problem
    is that I don't believe that you can rely on the average sales rep to
    solve this dilemma. I know that many people have regular Vision for
    free or $10 per month. I am not saying that they are dishonest its
    just that at this level every benefit they give comes out of their own
    paycheck. All of the promotion codes, are not known to all reps.
    One thing that may help you is that Sprint has a new 30 day guarantee.
    You could try saying that you are will to cancel and go to another
    company if they don't work out a compromise. I would like to upgrade
    to Power Vision, myself. Has anyone received power vision for $10 or
    less?

    I think I've got this figured out. Had to go back to the Sprint store for
    other reasons and they cancelled the "Power Vision". Don't care about the
    free month. I might be interested in casual web use and apparently that's
    available ala carte for 2 cents per KB. I assume that is Byte and not bit as
    some Sprint literature uses the term kb in one place and KB in others.
    What I'm not sure about is if someone would use my phone and use some "Power
    Vision" features... would they work? Or would they be prompted to sign up
    for a plan. I noticed that the PV feature seems to be available ala carte
    also.
    I think I'm rambling so will sign off.

    The current Sprint Employee Referral Offer deal
    (http://www.sprint.com/sero/ includes Vision or Power Vision (depending
    on your phone) at NO charge.

    Get one of the Sprint store employees to give you her Sprint email
    address, and plug it in at that website.

    Yes, that's per kilobyte. 2 cents per kb is NOT a good deal. A typical
    web page eats 150kb = $3. You want to pay $3 per web page?????

    If you plan to do ANY browsing or email at all, get a $15 Sprint Power
    Vision Access Pack.

    You used to be able to get unilimited Vision at $10/month, if you asked
    nicely for them to eliminate the download credit. This may no longer be
    available.

    The alternative, if you're opening a new line of service is the SERO
    deal (www.sprint.com/sero/), which includes free Power Vision.

    I wonder if someone knows the format of a Sprint employee
    email address. Are those addresses something like
    [email protected]? If the format is known,
    valid addresses should be easily guessable.

    If you have a PowerVision phone then they require you to be on a PowerVisoin
    plan [rather than Vision] or no data plan at all. I believe you then just pay
    1 cent per KB if you don't have a data [Vision or PowerVision] plan. You are
    more likely to download more data with PowerVision, but if you just visit
    websites, you likely won't be hitting $10 / month anyway. BTW .. the Vision
    and PowerVision plans come with 100 text messages per month.

    A typical mobile website page is NOT 150kb. I used to browse all the time on
    the 1 cent / KB plan and never went over about $2.50 or so per month [with
    Vision].

    It is available, but it is listed as a retention option.

    Hello DanR

    Be WARNED !!!!

    If you surf the web without ANY plan, you're screw !! Just try it and
    watch the bill for next month !!! It happen to me !!

    PowerVision will allow you to; EVDO Technology, Web/Data Access,
    Picture Mail & Video Mail, Streaming News & Radio.

    They provide some flavors so you can have the basic one if you want.

    If you really want to take advatange of the PowerVision I strongly
    recommend a "Multimedia" Phone (I have the A920 - Incredible phone
    !!).

    Believe me, if you like ringtones, games, etc. you should go with the
    PowerVision plan (at least the free months so you can download
    ringtones, etc. !!)

    Have Fun !!!

    Actually, only Vision comes with 100 text messages. Power Vision
    doesn't come with any text messages at all. I fould this out the hard
    way..

    Sounds like Verizon's EVDO offering ... except with almost no free content.
