    If one calls the number previously posted 866-519-5698 for
    Executive Serives, it is now intercepted by operator who then verifies
    you are a Sprint Customer and following their "Guidelines" lies to you
    and instead connects you to the bottom rung of Customer Assist.

    No other previously posted # here for Executive Servicves works either.

    Not only is Executive Services blocked but the Retention Department,
    which used to have the most intelligenet, professional CSRs is now
    populated with a collection of the dumbest, rudest, most poorly
    trained employees I have ever run across. It takes 5-6 phone calls to
    just find a CSR who knows how to add and subtract and read the notes in
    your account. And the Supervisors - some of them have the math skills
    of a 4th grader. I wonder if this company ever tests basic skills
    before they hire people.
    What was a big improvement in customer service a few months ago is now
    officially over and Sprint customer service is "worst deneva". I can't
    wait to see the next time the WSJ does an article on wireless company
    rankings. If Sprint could possibly go any lower, it will.

    Maybe the good employees got tired of all the people calling retention
    not because they actually planned on cancelling, but just because they
    wanted to shave a buck or two off their monthly bills, and they quit.

    So their job description is "drink coffee and read newspaper"?

    They are not hired to judge customers' real intention.

    More likely, anyone intelligent quit because they got tired of undoing
    all of the mistakes that the incompetent regular CSRs make. This
    company wastes far too much employee time and effort due to their own
    employees' pure lazyness and stupidity.

    I got into Executive Services (through a back door) to complain that I
    was told:

    "...the computer shows some Sanyo 6400's in our Warehouse,
    but the computer won't let me sell them to you."

    The Exec. Services Associate proposed to match any BestBuy deal for me
    on a Sprint telephone instead.

    You missed the point.

    The point is that it shouldn't be as big an issue as it is. What percentage
    of people post here talking about retention deals, that actually had _plans_
    to cancel?

    I'm the one making the judgment here, not anyone at Sprint. It's amazing how
    many people actually just call and threaten to cancel just so they can save
    a couple cents. I personally think it's stupid.

    If you have a legitimate reason to cancel, that's another story.

    I think it is stupid that you have to threaten to quit to get a retention
    discount. They should automatically give you good customer discounts. They
    only seem to automatically give discounts to new suckers signing up for
    service. They are only motivated to try and keep you with them if you want
    to leave- I love how PROactive Sprint is and always will be.

    i just talked to retention yesterday and the person was very helpful and
    knew what she was talking about. also very polite.

    btw, retention is there for good customers and people cancelling to
    recieve better deals. if sprint was getting ripped of they wouldnt have
    it and or be so lenient.

    well regardless of what it is called i recieved a better plan just for
    being a good customer. i never mentioned cancelling, most of the time
    it pays to be polite and honest.

    Like I said before, there should not be any special "retention"
    plans. If someone is not satisfied with the plan they are on, instead
    of canceling, the retention department should be there to help them find
    best fitting plan for them from the currently advertised plans.

    Actually that's exactly their job. Assess the situation, the intent of the
    customer, and decide whether it's a situation which merits a retention
    offer.

    I think it is stupid that people enter an agreement where they know
    what the monthly and per-minute rates are, and then whine that they are
    paying too much and play the "call retention" game simply to save money.

    If you had such a problem with the rates in the first place, why did
    you sign up for the service?

    Sprint is already one of the lower-priced carriers out there. I believe
    T-Mobile does give you more minutes for the same money, but I guarantee
    that in most parts of the country, Sprint's coverage is significantly better.

    But that's really irrelevant. The people signing up know what they're getting
    into when they initiate service.

    On my wife's Sprint plan we pay $30 per month for 300 minutes plus $5
    additional per month for unlimited PCS to PCS. The vast majority of people
    she talks to are on Sprint, and in a typical month she will talk for almost
    twice the number of minutes we pay for, without getting charged extra.

    This is on SPCS Free and Clear (not F&C America, just the regular F&C
    plan that's been around for years - if we're in an area where Sprint
    doesn't have service, we use my Verizon phone).

    I don't see how we can get a better plan for our money.

    What plan are you on that you are so hellbent on getting a discount?

    Jerome, for the first time in months, I agree with you 100%.

    I think the way many people play the "Retention game" is fundamentally
    dishonest.

    My agreement had expired in April.

    My objection is Sprint reps flat our being instructed to lie.
