    New info just in from Sprint - remember that 30 day return option you all love so much? They are doing away with it. They are moving to a scenario where they make sure you love your phone before you take it home...it is costing them a fortune in restocking and getting stuck with "refurbs.", so they will still allow you to exchange, but it will cost you to restock.

    Are you suggesting two 2 year contracts in that short period of time? I don't even think it can be done...
    I think what Chong means is you extend your contract for another two years everytime you get a new phone. You can do that, but you won't get the phone a cheaper price. When I got my Treo Pro, I had to extend for another two years, but I was only 8 months into my contract. Sprint gave me the 1 year discount, so I had to pay $429 for the phone (as opposed to $269 if I had a two year discount). Now I got mine at Best Buy since they had the phones a week before my local Sprint stores, so you can deduct about $50-$70 off those prices. If I want to get a Pre when it becomes available, I will not be able to get any sort of a discount since I just extendeded my contract to get the Pro. I don't know is Sprint will work out any deals or anything on the Pre, but based on my experiences with them, I would have to pay full price to get one.

    Is that anywhere on their website? I would also think that would not apply to new lines of service, does it?

    I just got a replacement phone sent to me...does this affect the $100 mail in rebate that I sent in for the original phone?

    My opinion? Skip Sprint altogether and get it on eBay.

    You can pick it up for $200-235 easily (I paid <$200) and that's no tax and free shipping. Win-win.

    Not worth the hassle of "negotiating" with Sprint, waiting for lame rebates 3 months later, losing any leverage you have with them to renew for another 2 years, etc. Why waste it on a phone that is selling NIB for basically the same price? Use the current low-demand/high-supply of the market to your advantage. Save it for the Pre ;-)

    There's just no benefit at this point going through Sprint over a reseller*. If you do go through Sprint, just tell them you want to keep your current plan. It's no big deal.


    *Assuming you are aware of the 1.03/1.04 issue, the seller has good feedback etc. and you know about Sprint's new warranty policy.

    Exceptionally sound advice. Usually New In box handsets max at around $150 over lowest Sprint price. In the case of the Pro i is about $40 over lowest Sprint price. If you are in the market for a subsequent handset in the next six months ebay is compelling for the Pro.

    yeah I really dont get the big deal about sprints feelings to these old plans.

    their is a reseller of sprints services called "helio" which also have the same pricing as sprint. SO their cheapest plan mirrors each others "everything or all-in" packages. But the point I am trying make is how did helio profit any if the plan rates are the same.

    So sero doesn't lose sprint a dime. I think sprint might be alittle upset that these plans get transferred to other people. Like me who never worked at sprint but yet my plan is a employee fair and flexable

    People have been getting pro's as 800w warranty replacements. Thats what I did and its free. I mean warranty not insurance. I do not have insurance as well.

    I'm also on the $30 sero plan
