    I have posted this before but I am still confused...

    I am looking for the best possible Sprint plan and deals that I can get with what I need. Here is what I am talking about:

    1. I want to upgrade to the Treo 700wx.

    2. I want to sign on with a new plan since I am month to month now.

    3. I have been a loyal Sprint customer for 4+ years. I already have 2 lines on my account. I am thinking I might be able to do their upgrade thing to get $150 towards my next phone. I have 2 phones though. Can I upgrade both and get $150 for each one?

    4. I need at least 2000+ minutes/month shared between my 2 lines.

    5. I need unlimited web/data service.

    Please help me find the best deal. I heard that Sprint has the employee discount that people can get. I think they may have the $15/month unlimited web/data plan too. I wonder if I can get my $150 upgrade from my old phone to this new Treo plus get the discounts they offer to sign on with a 2 year plan plus get the employee discounts?

    SERO is an option, but you should also look around HERE

    SERO won't allow you to share minutes, which you mentioned you have/want. Your best deal if you want to share minutes will be through retentions. Threaten to cancel based on a deal you have been offered by Cingular, Verizon, etc.
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 700wx -> Mogul -> Touch Pro

    shoot - tis' correct stroths - my mistake. Yes, call retentions as per above.

    And yes, you can upgrade both phones for $150 if you have had both for 2 yrs or more. Also ask for N&W's at 6pm and some free text msgs. And at least a discount on Power Vision

    that sounds like a good deal if they will give me $150 off of each new phone. I wonder if they will take $150 off for upgrading AND $150 off for the new 2 year contract...

    Mine's similar, but I have only 2500 minutes. Comes in each month just under $100, incl. all taxes. Works for us, because we rarely make it near 2500.

    you need to just call retentions since you are a good customer

    *2 and say cancel services. that takes you to the retentions department. talk to them and come back and tell us what they offered you
    blake!

    that is the best advice in this thread so far.

    Yes. This is how I extracted my plan from them. Great point. Be VERY FIRM. Have your story down. "I saw this plan on Verizon that offers X, Y, Z, and I'm thinking of switching because my wife likes the Chocolate phone, and Sprint doesn't offer that, and I want to make sure I can keep my telephone number when I change. Also, Verizon is what my company phone is, and I've found the service far more reliable, so . . ."

    They jumped through hoops when I said something similar (substituting the "Razor" which was the phone du jour at the time.).

    Good luck.

    if you are firm with retentions, you will be able to get something.

    if not, hang up..call back.

    repeat until satisfied, lol.

    good luck and let us know what happens!

    It's also worth noting that they take notes. So know what you're going to say, and then stay consistent on follow-up calls, and you'll get where you want to faster. But in general, this is exactly right. If you're not making any progress with retentions, nicely say you'll think about things, have to discuss w/ your signif. other, etc. Hang up, and call right back. There are sympathetic ears who will give you most of what you want.

    Then make damn sure you actually get it. Have them make a notation of EVERYTHING in your file. And check your statements like a hawk. Sprint is notorious for forgetting to include things they promised.

    Thanks everyone! I am going to have to think about and write down what I want to say to the retentions department. This will be the hardest part for me. If you have any quotes that I should throw in the conversation, please feel free to post it here. Thanks again...
