I thought I already said so, but maybe I wasn't very clear, so I'll just say it again: The Samsung Epic is incompatible with the inferior GSM network.

You may be able to sign up for a new eprp plan, get the sero plan transferred into your name, then cancel the eprp plan within 30 days.

Also it's a best offer auction, they may take $100

As expensive as it is, it might be a good move, but I'm still not entirely sure I want to go that route. Is that EPRP plan you were talking about their current Sprint.com/Sero plan? Does their current $39.99 plan include any data?

Exactly. The glass is actually mostly full. Say, do you have access to WiMAX with that plan on your Epic?

Calm down, we're not even really talking about the inferiority of GSM.

Just to recap for everyone else, we're mostly talking about ways to get EvDo data working on PagePlus and also reasonable plans such as sprint sero as well as ways to get Sprint Sero plans (the old ones).

Thanks for everyone's help so far. I look forward to seeing lots of good suggestions from ya'all.

Re: Question on PagePlus Data...

@eric you are clear that this phone is for CDMA network and not for GSM and that it is not a world phone either which had gsm built into it

Unless there's another hidden feature they didn't tell us about (like the FM radio).

Question ANY UPDATES Reply

Any new ideas on this?

Oh by the way, I just remembered - to make things even more complicated, the handheld has a crapped out ESN for Sprint. If push came to shove and there was some really good Sprint or Sprint MVNO deal (with Verizon Wireless roaming), I could clone the ESN, but since everyone's brainwashed into thinking that it's somehow "illegal", I don't know if I'll be able to find the information. Right now, we just need to find a carrier and plan. Keep your eyes open on your local auction sites and Craiglist cities for SEROs (I know I'll be keeping my eyes open for 'em), as those would be ideal: The data I need, with a low price and a (some) roaming (it doesn't really matter since I'm in the Sprint area probably 90-95% of my wireless year.

Thanks.

Sero or Boost are the only cheaper options for an epic, maybe Criket!

Re: Question on PagePlus Data...

Not exactly SERO, but I hear there is a trick to get SERO Premium..though YMMV. Effectively whats some people did was open up EDRP accounts and then call up emplyee support and ask them to be upgraded to Sero Premium lol

umm..yes and no...

old sero = sero = 30$
new sero = EDRP = 60$
sero premium = 40$

sero premium is when you had an old sero plan and you upgraded it for $10 to allow you to use all none 4g devices. 4g devices are $10 extra a month.
