    i have the $100/month with 1 free add a phone plan... vision included on
    both.

    i recently added a second add a phone which I was charged $10/month and was
    told it included vision. when looking on my online account it shows
    $15/month for premium vision package or something like that. i emailed
    customer service and they said the add a phone now is priced at current
    rates and i'm replying back saying that it shouldn't be since I have an
    older plan that included vision on add a phones.

    am i wrong about add a phones must follow whatever current pricing for add a
    phones are? if that's the case why did they honor the $10/month that was
    the price that my plan allowed?

    Call Executive Services at 817215-3072
    They have the authority to fix things
    Email goes to India, where they have no authority to do anything but send you a
    form letter response.

    You know... every time someone is sent to Executive Services for an
    unwarranted reason, it becomes less and less effective. The more people
    use that tool for no reason, the more bogged down they get, in turn
    longer turn around times or hold times. The original poster on this
    could more than likely contact customer service and get the issue
    resolved or have it explained to them.

    or, perhaps, if enough folks call with minor problems that need addressing
    they'll get the point that their "service" group sucks. Something's got to
    snap these wads out of their denial --- and maybe this will help.

    If SPCS c/s is as terrible as it is made out to be the 10-12 people who
    call executive services by getting the # of this group isn't going to
    make any real difference now is it?

    Then train the customer service reps to the level of "executive
    services" so that the entire system benefits. The largest problem is
    that Sprint tries to outlive it's problems and hope these people will
    get tired of calling instead of solving them. In case you haven't
    looked lately this is not working for AOL right now either who have
    upset just about everyone in the United States and none of those people
    are comiing back

    The more people

    Train the customer service reps. Most are poorly trained to handle
    customer traffic.

    But as I understand it the original post (concering Vision service on an
    addeed line) is correct, he should NOT be paying for vision. Just like
    mobile to mobile, all added lines on a shared plan use the base lines
    features and all added lines are set up accordingly.

    as terrible as it's made out to be? My position is real simple ---- when you
    call for service you get service ---- not a collection of under-informed
    check collectors trying to up-sell a product or service. As it is now there
    is no "service" at SPCS, in the classic definition of the repair world. I
    didn't devise the system, just looking for ways to get "management" to wake
    up and understand the last thing most want when the service doesn't work is
    the Sprint 50 minute plan for the home phone --- especially when they
    already have it.

    all folks want is a phone number that goes to trained sales reps and a
    DIFFERENT number that goes to trained service reps. Why someone decided that
    blending these two distinct departments is a good idea is beyond me. So if
    busting exec svcs nuts gets the point across then lets have at them.

    Re: anyone remember older plans with included vision?

    I would call back and ask again. They SHOULD be able to add-a-phone
    with vision to that account. If not they SHOULD let you pay the $10 for
    the add-a-phone and $5 for it to have vision, since that is the current
    rate. Plans $100 and above still have free vision so there should never
    be a $15 charge for it.

    Why, these people in customer care do nothing for the company, they just
    sit on the phone while doing nothing to increase revenue. With just
    some elementary sales training and goals set up they could make the
    customer care section proud by having a positive impact on the companies
    bottom line informing customers of the benefits of Sprint bundled
    services and features. If you think about it, they are just helping the
    customer.

    (Re enabiling sarcasm mode, with the new question dodger upgrade)

    "service" in the sense that the "repair" world is not practical in the
    cellular field as the labor to actually "fix" the problem is out of
    proportion to the cost involved.

    (sarcasm mode now enabled)

    The "blending" (your words, not neccessaraly those of Sprint or our
    highly educated PHB school graduates, who know more about business than
    lets say, a temporary worker in Kansas City) of Customer service with
    sales is a natural realignment of a sector of our business that
    traditionally loses money through the payment of employees who do
    nothing to increase the bottom line of the company, to useful income
    producers is a sound investment of company resources.

    So if
    > busting exec svcs nuts gets the point across then lets have at them.



    (Sarcasm mode now enabled)

    Unfortunately, due to high call volumes, we have deemed the Executive
    services branch to be a failure as it has exceeded it's budget and has
    now become a drain on corporate resources, we will now impose sales
    quotas and performance goals to use this channel to improve company
    revenue.

    newguy,

    When you "add-a-phone" it is added at the currently available
    "add-a-phone" price not the price when you activated service, i.e. if
    you added a line at the time of activation then it would've been free,
    since you activated service rate plans changed to "add-a-phone" lines to
    10.00 for voice and Vision is half price on each extra line, 7.50. So
    the fact you got it for 10.00+5.00 is a deal! FYI the new price for
    "add-a-phone" is 20.00 for voice, 25.00 for voice and vision, regardless
    of +/- 100.00 core rate plan

    As far as contacting customer service my recommendation is to always
    call, never e-mail when it comes to billing, it's to slow and nothing
    changes to your favor.

    yes i found it out after getting replies from here, i called sprint up and
    they dropped the vision charge from $15/month to $5... and the add a phone
    price was $10, so i got add a phone with vision for $15 which isn't bad.
