    And I would have to agree with Notan -- had Sprint PCS for several years
    now, they are the fourth provider I've had in the last dozen years, and have
    been by far the best and most reliable.

    That's true of so many products. I had Gateway computers for many
    years, with no problems. Does that mean Gateway was a responsive
    company? Judging by the numbers of complaints, maybe not. But I
    never had to contact them, so it didn't much matter to me.

    Incidentally, Usenet had a lot to do with my Gateway satisfaction -
    could get questions answered in newsgroups, so I never had the need to
    test Gateway's customer service. And this is true of lots of other
    products (particularly tech products), where I probably woulda been a
    very unhappy camper if Usenet hadn't been available and I had to
    tackle telephone support...

    So, in other words, all you want to do, is whine whine whine, and not
    explain what your alleged problem was. You've said nothing about a prior
    account, save that you may have been one of the credit challenged customers
    who had to pay $3 to talk to CS, when CS had that charge in effect.

    You mentioned that you changed to a F & F account and that N & W start @
    9:00 PM. You've also said that SPCS made money on your account. If you've
    been on that minimal minute account option, I doubt it very much that SPCS
    made much ... if any profit on your account. SPCS makes money on accounts @
    $50+/mo. IOW, you haven't said diddley other wise.

    So, let me ask you ... why should anyone take what you say with a grain of
    salt and believe anything you mention here?

    You want some credibility here? Outline what account you were on, and what
    problems you think you had.

    It qualifies you for getting a sweet retention plan (I have one)
    and $150 rebate per phone every 18 months.

    Sprint's policies are basically no different than that of the other
    carriers. What makes you think you'll get better treatment from
    a different carrier?

    ALL advertisements are somewhat deceptive since they only reveal
    the positive aspects of a product. It is up to up to you, as a smart
    consumer, to read the fine print and research the negative aspects.
    Since when are ads to be taken at face value?

    You're responding emotionally rather than rationally.
    Have you heard of jumping from the frying pan into the fire?
    Sounds like that's what you are contemplating doing.
    Do the consumer research, then make an informed decision.

    I've contacted them on several occasions for various reasons - comparing
    plans, changing plans, etc and never once had a problem

    Re: Dear Sprint PCS,

    Well said. any better treatment from a different carrier? No. As an
    industry, all US Cellular Service is fair, with an occasional good. Sprint
    PCS rates a C for me. ATTWS, now cingular, has slipped from the Pacific
    Bell days rates a C-. Under Cingular, the new slogan is "get less".
    Verizon is no better than a B-. I know how cellular companies work, and I
    do ok these days. I believe it when people have issues and problems, and
    they are ignored.

    Please elaborate. Your response is very cryptic.
