    THE NEXT PART WAS POSTED OVER ON SPRINTUSERS.COM



    OK, so here's what I've found out. Some of this has come from direct info, and some of it has come from reading between the lines, but here's what it seems happened with this latest delay:

    Sprint is actually using Virgin Mobiles SMS platform for their SMS. A couple months ago sprint had us basically add a bunch of capacity to the routes connecting our Switches to the VMU SMS platform. Then, we got a MOP (procedure) and schedule for turning up SMS in the middle of January. This original schedule would have had all of nation ready before Feb 1. Ours was scheduled for last Thursday, but a day or two after the first switches were supposed to be turned up, we got an unspecific email stating that our SMS turnup was postponed indefinitely. Two days later we got a call to rescheduling our turnup. We specifically asked what the delay was about last night while turning up SMS on our switch, but the techs we were working with were tight lipped, however sometimes what people don't say can reveal a lot. It seems like the MOP we, and everyone else, were sent wasn't complete and had some problems in it dependent upon what kind of switch you had. It was mostly translations stuff, which is most likely why people were reporting such varying things last week. The issues have been worked out and everything seems to be working properly now, so without any further issues it should be ready for launch by mid Feb.

    Ok... first, this mentions employees. Is this from a Sprint internal site, or is it specific for a certain company? I ask this because sprintpcs.com doesn't mention anything like this... no Basic Vision Access, no separate "a-la-carte" option for Picture Mail, etc.

    I think you can get PM a la carte if you are the add a phone. That's what the SPrint guy said......take that at face value...LOL

    It looks to be for bussiness accounts perahps?

    THere is (or was) a link to almost the exact same verbage on MobiTv's site

    Well, I also ask because those plans actually make sense. There's an exchange of features, even though the price doesn't change beyond basic access... If that is how it will be, then...

    Basic unlimited access is $10. This sounds like how they're going to get all of us with the grandfathered $10/mo Vision, and charge for or limit additional services.

    The Premium Pack is the same as above, just for $15. But it includes a $10 credit on ringers, backgrounds, games, etc. This makes the actual service cost $5/mo. Just make sure you get your money's worth in backgrounds and ringers each month.

    The Pictures pack is the Premium Pack + Picture Mail, but only includes a $5 credit on ringers, etc.

    And the Professional pack is Pictures Pack + BizCon, with no credit for ringers, etc.

    But all of them include unlimited messaging, which contradicts what some said about only current owners being grandfathered (we all have Vision, so we'd get it anyway, but so would new Vision users), and also contradicts what others have said about there being an additional monthly charge... unless the additional monthly charge is if you don't have Vision.

    I guess we'll see in time if this is how it becomes...
