    Hi,
    I just added the option of unlimited Sprint PCS to Sprint PCS
    calling. My question is if I got a call FROM a Sprint PCS phone am I
    charged minutes? Does this plan cover calls TO and FROM my phone, or
    only my phone if I initiate the call??

    Thanks, Ace

    To and from.

    As long as your phone is communicating with another Sprint phone,
    you won't be charged any minutes.

    Oh, and not roaming. If you roam, PCS to PCS doesn't count, either.
    Seems obvious, but worth mentioning.

    It also does not include getting your voicemail.

    Slightly off-topic, but this raises a question: Since carriers offer
    these plans that promote PCS-PCS calls, I have to conclude that
    network bandwidth is not a problem and that landline connections are
    (relatively) cost-drivers. Is that borne out by the facts?

    I'm not sure that network bandwidth *isn't* a problem...

    I ten to think it boils down to the almighty dollar... Free PCS-PCS
    means you'll encorage friends/family to also use Sprint. More
    subscribers, more money, etc.

    For those of you *****ing fanatics (and I'm one!), sorry for
    the errors... Fingers typing faster than the brain... Or is
    it the other way around?

    Yes, any calls connecting to other Sprint PCS phones will go towards the
    PCS-PCS bucket of minutes.

    That is because voicemail is not hosted on a Sprint PCS phone

    thats exactly what it boils down to. No matter what the phone has to
    communicate with the ground, so it costs sprint the same no matter who
    you call.

    The plan covers calls to OR from your phone. So if another SPCS users
    call you from their Sprint PCS phone, it comes out of your unlimited
    PCS2PCS bucket.

    Not really.

    Remember, you're paying (in most cases) for this unlimited PCS2PCS
    bucket. At ths point, Sprint probably figures that $5 a month per each
    person that signs up for this is enough revenue to recover the cost of
    in-network calls. Furthermore, the fact that you may entice other
    people to sign up for Sprint so that you can take advantage of unlimited
    PCS2PCS will provide them with additional revenue, further offsetting
    their costs.

    So yes, calls within the PCS infrastructure still cost something. You
    just now have the luxury of paying a flat rate for it instead of having
    it eat your minutes.

    And yes, calls to a landline phone are of a greater expense to Sprint.

    Call to a Sprint PCS phone, and Call from a Sprint PCS phone are covered
    under the pcs2pcs option. but the calls MUST be placed or recive *ON*
    the Sprint PCS Network.. If you are roaming pcs2pcs is not used, this is
    also on the new Free & Clear America plans as well.. they only work
    while on the Sprint PCS network.
