    Hi, guys. I thought I'd share this since I think it is a sweet plan.

    I used to have:

    300 AT - NW @ 9PM - UNL DATA - $40

    This was a couple of years ago. At contract-renewal-time, I got:

    300 AT - NW @ 8 PM - UNL DATA - PCS-PCS $40

    That was last year sometime.

    I've been occassionally bugging Sprint to give me something better (300 minutes is no longer enough for me), but they wouldn't budge on anything decent.

    Following the advice found on tc.com I asked specifically for the Retention Department.

    This is what I now have:

    750 AT - NW @ 7 PM - UNL DATA - PCS-PCS - 50 MIN ROAMING - $50

    I am happy as a rooster in a hen house. The Sprint lady was very very nice and accommodating. Big A+ for Sprint!!!

    Thanks!
    -Nick.

    I got a somewhat crappy retention plan recently.

    2500 minutes ($115)
    first add a line free ($0)
    2 more add a lines ($10 * 2 = $20)
    free pcs to pcs
    7pm night and weekends ($5)
    free and clear america (i.e. 50% roaming) ($5)
    1 extra line of vision ($5)

    or about $40 a line (if all had vision, $2.5 less as I didn't go that route) for 625 minutes per line.

    Further, I almost never roam, so 50 minutes should/will suffice.

    These variations seem so arbitrary. Another example:

    My Current Plan:
    750mins for $50
    PCS Vision for $10
    Free PCS-to-PCs
    Free 8pm night time start

    Retention plan just offered to me:
    1400 mins for $76
    All other items the same
    No hardware allowance (I got $150 last year)

    What criteria does sprint use when handing out the retention plans?

    Wow, doothedewww has a sweet plan, too.

    I think Retention will give you whatever you want if you're polite and confident and urge them along enough.

    They wanted to charge me an extra $10 for my data for the plan above, until I insisted that no, a Sprint customer of 4 years gets data for free.

    And she gave it to me NQA.

    I'll have to call back and try another rep. I really prodded the first guy and he was firm. For voice, they are offering me the same deal that a new customer would get. I too have been with Sprint 4 years. I'm also waiting for the GSM Treo to appear. If sprint can't do any better, I'll jump ship

    Do you think that they would give this to someone who is thinking of coming over to Sprint from Verizon?

    I don't think new customers have as much pull as existing customers, but it's worth a shot. Hell, PM me and I'll use you as a referral and we both get some freebies!

    I wish retention offered my plan. My play is actually a 3rd party employee plan. I also don't get any n&w but i never use the phone on nights and barely on weekends.

    I wouldn't use 1000 minutes even with NW. I normally use 600-700 minutes per month. But I started a small business and use my cell as my only phone so I imagine its gonna skyrocket.

    I can honestly say i never have had a problem with sprint cellular service...

    Hmnnn i have :
    4500 min AT
    4 phones total
    Sprint 2 Sprint
    Vision pic pkg on all lines
    unlimited SMS
    Voice command/dial (whatever it is i dont use it but i have it)
    N/W after 9
    I pay $205 after tax
    Not to mention i got a free treo 650 upgrade from my 600 without extending my contract.

    Im trying to have them add $5 roam and $5 insurance for free. Its all about who and how you ask.

    I have never had a problem with sprint cust service ever! They always treat me good. Ive had them since 1998. Always pay my bill on time. And im a business member.
