Re: New SERO Oct 1st

This is great! It's a win/win for everybody who has a SERO plan. Pay a few bucks extra to get any phone, or just leave it alone and continue to milk the $30 plan. Sprint gets some extra cash (admit it, we've been lucky so far) and users get more options. Awesome.

I wonder how many SERO customers there are. Anybody know?

Boy not me. When I signed up years ago I expected I'd be able to have whatever phones I wanted in the future so long as the usage was the same.

Re: New SERO Oct 1st

i think this is good for SERO customers who wants an iconic device to use for their SERO. i for one also has my tp2 on my SERO. not planning on jumping to any iconic device because my SERO line is just a backup line for me. i use it maybe for 5-10 minutes of data a month. with my tp2 being on it at $30/mo...why rock the boat? getting an android or 4g on my backup line is not feasible for me. it would cost me either an extra $120 or $240 each year for something i barely use except for emergency.

thats something i never understood really either... If they dont want SERO to buy a subsidized phone because they all ready get a super low plan.. i understand i suppose..

but your right, If one is willing to pay Full Retail for a device, it shouldve already been allowed on SERO..

If you have some of those questions, Russ McGuire does a pretty good job on his blog with answering people's questions on this kind of thing. I would say... Hey Russ... If I want to pay full price for my Epic when it comes out, why cant I keep my CURRENT SERO plan and then only pay $10 extra for the 4G.

See that's what I would like. The paying an extra $10 for a NEW phone is odd. When the TP2 came out it was a HOT new phone. So forget about a 4G phone, why not pay what we currently do for a new android phone that does NOT have 4G?

I think these questions would be interesting to ask Russ on his blog.

Re: New SERO Oct 1st

Question on his blog...

Hi Russ,
Are either of the SERO up-charges ($10 or $10+10 for Evo) mandatory? Can I keep my current phone & SERO plan without adding these fees?

Ralph - great question. If you don’t currently have one of the iconic devices (and you shouldn’t), then, as I understand it, it’s purely optional whether or not you step up to the premium plans (with their choice of devices).

That's what Russ told that guy.

Re: New SERO Oct 1st

I spoke with an Employee care rep yesterday and she pretty much repeated everything that has been mentioned in this thread, but also added that they're doing away with the "bucket minutes" for overage charges. The Fair and Flexible plans will keep the name, but both FnF and SERO will supposedly be reverted to the old $0.40/min over your allotted monthly minutes.

I asked about WP7 phones and she wasn't aware of any WP7 devices coming out any time soon.
