    That is why you have to be careful everytime you change something sprint
    wants you to "renew" your plan for another 2 years!

    Ok thanks guys

    I'm wanting to start a new sprint contract but there is
    a slight chance I may get laid of from work.... hence
    the question

    I currently have STi pre-paid cell phone now but it has
    no roaming at all

    They all do that now ... even Verizon, which for so long touted the fact that
    you could change minute tiers within the same plan all you want without
    resetting your contract, as long as you don't accept promotional offerings. I
    wish they would go back to that, as it is a clear attempt to lock the customer
    in and is not supported by additional costs to the carrier.

    If you get laid off, you can always put your plans on hold, the contract is
    extended for each month on hold. I am not sure if they charge you for this.
    I had to pay $10 / month when I had Voicestream years ago. We held the hold
    on the phone because we had another phone at the time. You can always ask
    Sprint about the details.

    Another solution will be to reduce your plan to something very minimal,
    and pay $20 a month until you get yourself another job. Post Paid
    wireless is cheaper than prepaid, so financially it would be a good
    move switch to a post paid plan.

    really?

    you feel pre-paid wireless is not cost effective?

    If yes how come?

    Re: Cost to cancel contract?

    This really depends on how much a person actually uses their prepaid
    phone and on average how much they pay per month for the service.
    Currently sprints least expensive plan is 29.99 per month. offers about
    200 minutes, unlimited nights starting at 7pm. this is of course
    before taxes, so if you currently pay say more than 40.00 per month for
    prepaid service, and are not getting atleast these many minutes for
    that money, then yes it would be cheaper to goto a monthly plan.

    I myself fluxuate so much a month as to how many minutes I use. Some
    months I may not use but say 50 minutes, other months I may use 300.
    What I have done is to purchase 100.00 worth of prepaid serice from
    t-mobile. I get up to a year to use the minutes, get bonus minutes
    because of the 100.00 or more purchase, and figure that this will
    probably last me about 7 months if my usage stays about what is has
    been over the past 7 months. This means my prepaid service will cost
    me an average of 14.30 per month approximately, and I have no contract.


    You still have the possibility of using many more minutes of course
    with the 200 min plan I mentioned above however because of the free
    nights, If a person is in the habbit of using the phone alot after the
    hours of 7pm, this may be the ideal answer. and if you go over the 200
    minutes peak time, it is only 5.00 extra for each grouping of 30 mins
    you go over by up to 500 total, then .20 per minute above that.

    Their 'vacation' plan is like 5.99 per month currently, and includes no
    minutes, or voicemail, or access to anything through the website, you
    pay I believe .40-.45 per each minute you actually use, which can be a
    good option if you do wind up getting laid off, as you can still use
    the phone if you absolutely need to, unlike t-mobiles similar plan
    which restricts your use completely. However the downside to this is
    that is does require a new 2 yr agreement to move to this vacation plan
    of sprint's, and then another new agreement most likely, when you move
    off of it back to a regular monthly plan.

    Just figured you might like all the options, sorry for the long post.

    A friend in the industry :-)

    Some questions:

    What kind of phone you have for use with T-Mobile?

    Also.... does T-Mobile have true roaming? Coverage in
    all areas of the US?

    Re: Cost to cancel contract?

    I have a 3650 nokia, my wife has a 6101 nokia [I got both these phones
    while I was on a monthly plan, I am not sure what they are offering
    currently with the prepaid plans, but the 3390 nokias we had at first
    were also wonderful as far as just basic calling was concerned, bare
    bones, no frills, but very reliable].

    I don't understand what you mean by "true roaming". I know that in the
    majority of the US their coverage is pretty good, especially in more
    urban areas and along Interstates. Rural coverage varies depending on
    exactly where. If you want information about a specific area it is
    good to call into customer care at 1-800-937-8997, supply them with
    your address and the addresses of where you use your phone the most and
    they can pinpoint what your coverage should be like. I live in the
    Kansas City area and we have terrific coverage here, hardly ever have a
    problem with dropped calls.

    I guess what I meant is that some of the pre-paid plans
    have no coverage at all once you get away form the
    network they use.

    Example....STi pre-paid uses Sprints network as
    well..... but once you are away form the signal there
    is no roaming off other towers at all

    By true roaming, I am pretty sure he means analog roaming on AMPS. I don't
    believe the term is valid [meaning there is no such thing as "true roaming" as
    opposed to the implied "false roaming"].
