    This is a hoot!

    "Eartha", whoever she might be, calls yesterday and wants to make me this
    "fantastic" upgrade offer. Currently, I have NO contract, 400 anytime
    minutes for $49. She offers to increase it to 600 minutes, unlimited on
    nights and weekends. Same money. Didn't say anything about PCS to PCS.
    Wanted a 1 year contract....

    So, I told her that once Sprint reimbursed me the $49 in late charges they
    stole from me (see my "Couple Questions" thread), and upgraded this crappy
    Samsung phone to one I can actually hear on...I'd consider it. Otherwise,
    November 24 and portability is approaching rapidly.

    She hung up.

    Sprint REALLY wants your business, folks.

    To be fair to Eartha, she likely has no authority to change the ofer,
    but is expected to make 30 calls per hour.

    I bet you never go over the 400 minutes, so Sprint figures it'd cost
    them zero to "give" you 600.

    I saw a sign at a Sprint store the other day for 1000 anytime minutes at
    $45. I didn't bother since I'm waiting for the November number portability
    to see what Verizon can do for me.

    You think? 30 calls? 120 whole seconds each? Must be a helluva script
    somebody wrote, eh? By an optimist who thinks every current customer is
    happy as a clam.....

    I'm always right at the 400....

    Thats for Sprint's Local plan.. not nationwide. Its just like Verizons
    Local Digital Choice plans.

    It is a great script:

    Have you had your phone software updated?
    Have you taken your phone to the store for a diagnostics check?
    Have you filed a trouble ticket?
    No, we're not waiving ETF fees right now.
    Thanks for using SprintPCS.

    Re: Sprint Calls ME with retention offer!

    please do me a favor.. what was the number that came across on your
    caller ID for that call??

    I ask this becuz, I recieved 2 calls from an out-of-state number, but I
    was unable to answer them, and when I called the number it said
    something about calling me for a special offer, but did not say who the
    call was from. I was wanting to see if it was from Sprint PCS.

    I know VZW will periodically send offers to customer nearing the end of
    their contract or have already passed the end of their contract, to
    offer them special deals to get them to stick around and renew their
    contract.. I am hoping Sprint PCS is starting this too.

    I was half joking, but only half. No one likes it when they're called a
    liar for no reason. Seems OK for Rob and Bob Smith to do, but not for
    anyone else.

    Keep in mind only the carriers operating in the top100 markets have to allow
    porting in or out in Nov. Otherwise, it's May 04. So if you are a Sprint
    customer in a non-top 100 market you might not necessarily get to port in
    Nov.

    I'm in Hotlanta....just yesterday, I saw a car with 3 young girls in it.
    All 3 were on cells.....probably talking to each other. I think ATL is one
    of the most concentrated cell areas in the country.

    Thats an average. Only takes 10 seconds for a non answer or a hangup.
