Upgrading from $30 SERO to Evo 4g...Best Plan?

Hey Evrybody,

Like I suspect many of you on here, I am currently on a $30 Sprint SERO plan with a Touch Pro 2. I have been putting off making the switch to Android for two reasons, mostly because Sprint will not allow me to activate an Android device without upgrading to a different (more expensive plan), I have also been waiting on Sprint to launch a android device that is ground breaking enough to lure me away from my SERO plan...the EVO is that device.

My question is, when I am forced to change plans, what is the absolute best plan that I can get that will be somewhat comparable in value to my current SERO plan?

If you are not familiar with the $30 SERO plan, I get 500 anytime minutes, unlimited nights and weekends starting at 7pm, unlimited text, and unlimited data. I never go over my 500 minutes b/c I'm mainly a texter/data user.

I'm sure there are plenty others out there wondering the same thing as me, so any help here will be greatly appreciated!

The "new" SERO. 500 minutes, unlimited text/data/GPS/Any Mobile Any Time/etc, $59.99/month. Google EPRP plans.

I'm not a regular poster here, but I can tell you that family plans are the best. If you have any friends or family, go in together and you can get a very cheap EPRP plan. 1600 mins plus unlimited data, texts, anytime anymobile for 4 lines comes out to be $35 per line. Five lines would be $31 per line(only a $1 more than SERO!!). That's exactly what I plan on doing. If your company email can get you a good discount(ie 21-23%), skip the EPRP because you can't add employer discounts to those plans.

Good luck!

I agree 100%, if you can get the family plan, that's the cheapest out of all of them in the long run. Also, family plan + corp/business discount nets even cheaper but for only 1500 minutes. If you don't have the people for a family plan, then go to the "new sero" plan for sprint employees, which is 500 minutes, unlimited everything + nights at 7pm for 59.99, if you have that 20-25% discount for corp/business, it's $55 for 450 minutes instead.

One caveat, I do know two people who convinced account services to give them $20 off recurring for 24 months when they upgraded from their old SERO to the "new" SERO 500 minutes plan. I don't know how they convinced the rep, but they did.

Well if you dont want to go the family plan route, than your best bet would be the $69.99 450 min plan. Although the $59.99 500 min plan seems to offer more for less, it really doesnt. From what I understand, you cant really add on discounts to this plan.

Now with the $69.99 plan, you can add a corp discount (your best is 27%) and also add a 10/24 credit which deducts $10 off your bill a month for 24 months.

If you have switched your plan in Feb, you would have been able to get the 20/24 deal. I was lucky to catch it 2 days after they stopped offering it.

How do you get that 27% discount? Also, what is a 20/24 credit and how do you get it?

Sent you a pm.

As far as the 20/24, they say its not offered anymore but I got it by calling retentions and saying I was thinking of switching and heard about the 20/24 and the rep had to search to find it and was able to add it to my legacy plan. I will be switching to a ED plan when I buy the Evo.

How long ago did you get the 20/24 offered to you? I just spoke retentions yesterday and all I could get offered was 10/24.
