But dude, that is what me and P-Slim are trying to tell you.

Your whole argument is why should you have to upgrade your plan to a higher priced plan. But you said that if people left Sprint to another carrier, they would be paying nearly 1.5 times more than what you would pay for Sprint.

So my question is, why wouldn't you just upgrade to the everything plan?

Cause people are easily blinded by the rage of how sprint is now asking for more money and ripping them off that they would switch carriers even if its more expensive just to prove a point?

i understand where you come from though, some people have a problem with other customers getting the exact service for cheaper while they pay more

your last point is why they are making the sep plans, to many legacy plans that aren't fair. Boost network isn't there to compete with sprint, tmobile, att or verizon, its there to compete with metro pcs where they get unlimited everything for $45 including tax.

I have to be honest, do you even call landlines? you think you will use more then 500 landline minutes? For the average customer they would be doing you a favor by saving you $10 a month. You pay 79.99 and your upset about 69.99 or even 59.99 if you complain hard enough and they put you on a friends and family plan. in most cases if your job requires you to talk to lanlines phones often or most of the day, more then likely
you have a landline yourself either in the office or at the home office.

Re: I understand sprint is loosing money on the sero plans. if we bought EVO, Nexus1.

actually i don't even use over 400~ minutes a month... i could probably even switch to the simply everything plan for $70 a month and save money but figured my current unlimited $80 plan is great if/when i need to use extra minutes.

i'll decide what im going to do once the Evo details/pricing/(new 4g plans if any) are announced.

They are still the top 3 provider and the only reason att is up there is because of the iphone, that simple.
Some wild and interesting thoughts in this thread. So I'll just give my .02 to it.

1. Sprint has to be making money off my SERO plan in the very least. My wife and I use a combined 1GB or less of bandwidth per month and routinely go way under our minutes and sometimes have to pay overages. I also have TEP as well. I am 100% sure Sprint makes money off of my two 30$ per month SERO plans. (probably not much, but that's not the point).

Now, some people are abusing their SERO plans and tethering like crazy and using google voice for a billion minutes a month. I am sure Sprint is losing money off of those.

I am very thankful and loyal to Sprint for offering such a low price and I basically paid full price for my TP2.

I've had this plan now for 3 years and I knew it wouldn't last forever. Although I do agree that Sprint would probably be better served to allow their exclusive devices to work with SERO, and I'd even be willing to pay a monthly surcharge to keep my plan. In the end, Sprint is hemorrhaging customers and money, and can use all of the loyal customers they can get.

Yea man, I think Sprint realizes that as long as their everything plans are still considerably lower than the other major competitors, customers will stay with them. And that's why the Legacy and Sero plan to everything plan transition is working.

If people would leave Sprint for phones, the only thing other carriers have over Sprint is ATT with the iphone when you really think about it. The N1 is rumored to be coming to Sprint. Incredible for Verizon...well with the Evo coming out this is not really an argument.
