    I'd tell you to call *2 and ask them, but I think you'll get a more accurate
    response here.

    Sprint accepts phones back for refund within 14 days, so i'd suggest
    getting one phone and trying it out, to see if it does what you need.
    They will however not refund your $36 activation fee if you decide its
    not for you.

    you will have to foot the bill for the total cost of the units plus,
    fee's if you dont agree with the service and or the units,, send them
    back within 14days to recieve a credit .... easiest way is to take them
    to the spcs store and handel it there,
    if you do decide to keep the units you will need to send in your UPC
    code off each box to btain the refund and that can take up to 12
    weeks,,,

    As long as you're activating a new line of service, a new phone number, you
    get the rebate. Like you said, it may be mail-in, but you get it
    nonetheless. If you wheedle the store staff enough, they'll probably let
    you have it on both lines right there, but no promise. But, looking at the
    text, I think what the web site means is that you get the mail-in rebate if
    you're buying the phone for a pre-existing line of service. A phone number
    already active with us. Oh, and ClearPay customers may get the same after
    60 days of service. Here's what I saw:

    ---
    This special offer ends September 28, 2003. Instant savings available to
    customers adding a new line of service on a PCS Free & Clear Plan with
    Vision. Requires a two-year PCS Advantage Agreement. Customers purchasing a
    phone without a PCS Free & Clear Plan will receive a mail-in rebate.
    ---

    Looks to me like you get mail-in rebate for activating the phone on a line
    you already have with us.

    We have a service, Business Connection Personal Edition, that may work for
    you if you have Outlook or Lotus Notes at work. It's included in the
    Professional Pack, or $5/month on its own, with a 2-month free trial.
    Basically, you sign up for the service, download and install a free software
    client to your work PC, run it and your email at the same time, and then use
    BCPE on your phone. Yes, your work PC has to be running, and both
    Outlook/Lotus Notes and the BCPE software client have to be running in order
    for this to work. The client (so I'm told) establishes a secure connection
    to Sprint-secured servers, and then your phone also connects to those
    servers when you sign into BCPE on your phone.

    Since you're getting a camera phone, you probably want to go with the
    Pictures Pack, and then opt for BCPE as an additional option for two months
    free to see if it'll work for you.

    C. Actually, Vision is a seperate add-on service that simply changes how
    you get billed. Your phone's Vision capabilities are not disabled if you
    opt out of it. Without a pack, though, you get charged based on the amount
    of data transmitted to and from your phone: 1/KB. Not much unless you move
    it up to MB, where it becomes $10 per. If BCPE works for you, you
    DEFINITELY want a Vision pack to go with it. Oh, and since you have a
    camera phone, if you share your pictures via our service, then you get
    charged for the bandwidth users take up looking at/downloading your shared
    pictures, too. If you don't have a Vision pack on your plan, that is.

    An add-on like that does NOT influence your contract. Period. No matter
    how many times you add it or remove it. It may not give you the 2-months
    free every time, but it will not force any contract renewals, either.

    What would you know about courtesy?
