    I received this email from Sprint and called them to tell them what I think
    and that this is a disservice to all of us.

    Re: Sprint will discontune email service to customers

    To me, it's okay. I use Yahoo for my email. I use Sprint for my phone and
    text messaging. I can access my Yahoo and corporate email from my Sprint
    phone. I haven't used Sprint PCS Mail. Just my 2cents.

    I have no problem with them dumping it. I go to google for reading
    email on my phone.

    Ja, I could still email my daughter's lap top. They have wifi at
    her university, but she does not always have her lap top with her. It
    is/was nice to be able to email her phone. I guess I will have to learn
    how to text message, but you can't do forwarding or multiple recipients
    when text messaging, right?

    I don't thank that will change. They are just dropping their own e-mail
    service. You can still send an e-mail to her phone.

    I would say no. I hate to say no, but I'd say no.

    When Sprint dropped their voice command service my brother tried to use
    that change to get out his contract--without success. Of course the
    carrier will always claim that the discontinuation of a service doesn't
    constitute a change in the terms. You can always break the contract and
    let it go to court if they try to get the termination fee from you.
