    My one year contract comes up on August 28. Will I be able to cancel my
    service on August 28, or should I wait until August 29 to cancel? I don't
    want to get hit with a cancellation fee, but I do not want to have service
    with Sprint any longer than I have to. I'm just getting too many dropped
    calls.

    You need to call at least a few days before your billing cycle ends. If you
    call on the day it restarts you will have to finish another month as they
    say they can't pro rate.

    Your contract does not automatically renew...when August 29th
    hits....it just starts a month to month type deal with Sprint PCS.
    Same plan and everything but no agreement. But you should tell them
    ASAP...like today....that you do not want Sprint PCS anymore. On the
    last day of your cycle...will be your last day with Sprint....Good Bye!
    LOL

    If I were you, I'd get the best retention deal I could get based on your
    usage.

    Then I'd put the account on vacation. Pay the standby fee. If you don't
    need it after a year, let it go. If you do, you should have a good plan.

    Why would you wait this long?

    If you are having that poor of a service, they will cancel your contract
    free of charge.

    All you have to do is call and have documented 5 complaints about service in
    general on your account.

    Re: Canceling Service

    Ed,

    You know your dropped calls may be due to a thousand different
    things--maybe so are sprint's fault, others may not be--Could be your
    locations--this may be hard to fix--could be you have either a bad or
    out of date handset--easier to fix--in either case you are in the cat
    birds so seat so to speak--

    If you are going to keep some form of cell service, you are in a
    position to get all sorts of extras, minutes, credits etc--if you go to
    another carrier--they are going to point to the current rate list--I was
    out of contract till I called to get 8pm nights, and also they gave me
    more minutes all no extra charge--I use both sprint and verizon and both
    loose calls occasionally--but hey its a cell phone--but my only regret
    at what I did is that I didn't ask for more--why don't you see what kind
    of deal you can get and let us know.

    My point is, at your position, sprint, can do more for you (money wise)
    than any other carrier.. let us know

    Re: Canceling Service

    Since he mentioned that his main issue is dropped calls, what possible good
    would having a retention plan, and the same annoying drops, do for the OP?

    If the issue were pricing or the number of minutes, sure, it makes sense,
    but to lobby for a cheaper price on a service he doesn't even want it silly.

    Re: Canceling Service

    I don't play the retention game. I have a Sanyo 4900. I've had the phone
    twice looked into by Sprint.. I can understand losing a signal in a weak
    area, but in a five bar area (Wilmington DE) to drop a signal is
    inexcusable. I live in Pennsville NJ, cellular hell, even Verizon has
    problem marinating a signal. Believe it or not, I'm trying T-Mobile right
    now, and although the coverage is not extensive as Sprint, it is the only
    other carrier besides Sprint where I can call out from my home and work with
    no problems, and I have not dropped a call with T-Mobile.

    I'm outside 2 miles from Wilmington Delaware with four to five bars and drop
    a signal while at the local park. It's just not worth it to me to keep
    dropping calls in a strong signal area.
