Anyone wanting to renew their contract with Sprint or sign up for new service, have I got the plan for you! Through my random internet findings I came across a site talking about this SERO plan(employee referal plan) and I'll try make it easier for my readers. This plan works... I have it myself.
The referal program can be viewed online at Sprint.com/sero. Now as you can see the page asks you for an email and zip. Enter the zip of where you live(not ALL areas have this plan available.. so you're out of luck unless you want to try listing a zip code nearby). As for the email... just enter firstname.lastname@example.org and that gets you right in, no referal needed! Most Sprint phones are available through this deal.
Now if you take a look at the plans... they may not seem GREAT but I think they are once you have a closer look. I'll be going over the $30 plan. For $30 you get 500 anytime minutes with free nights(starting at 9pm) and weekends. Free mobile-to-mobile calling, voicemail, call waiting, 3-way calling etc etc... the standard stuff. The part that really makes this deal is the FREE VISION/POWER VISION. That means all web usage is FREE. Web browsing, AIM, Yahoo chat, MSN messenger, picture mail and all data downloaded is FREE! You still have to pay for any games you buy through the sites etc but there are ways for getting free games, applications, wallpapers and ringers but that will be covered in a later post. The only drawback is this plan doesn't include text messaging but 100 SMS texts can be added for $5/month so for $35+tax you have yourself a darn good deal. I just checked my data usage for this week... already I would have spent $183 on data downloads alone... so you can see how much this can save you.
So what do you do if you just bought a new phone through sprint and want this deal instead? If you're still within the 14-day return period you can call Sprint and ask them to connect you to EMPLOYEE ACCOUNTS. You MUST go to employee accounts... anyone else cannot do anything for you. Once you are connected, tell them you would like to switch to the SERO plan... easy as that. If you want a phone not listed on the SERO site sign up for a new sprint plan... buy your phone then call employee accoutns and have them switch the plan. This is what I did and I can vouch that it works. If you have a current plan with Sprint and want to extend your contract to get this deal, use the above method as well. I'm not sure about buying a phone from ebay or something then starting a SERO plan... I'm sure it's possible but I can't confirm any of that. The prices for the phones through Sprint is about as good as you can get anyway. Goodluck :)
