    Thanks for the tip Russ!

    Do you know what the availability of the Epic 4Gs are right now? I’m itching to drop into a store and grab one come Friday as I’m a SERO customer, but am worried that it’s still in short supply…

    Hamagc – I just tried and had no problem. Sometimes security settings on your pc can cause problems. You might try from a different pc.

    Ordered it using your details, thanks – expecting delivery tonight! :-)

    But I’m surprised, the Hotspot option appears to be $30 now, I think it was $20 under the Everything Plus. Was there a rate increase I missed?

    Thanks again!

    Ricky – I don’t specifically know, especially for any given store, but since they’ve generally been available online, I’m guessing they’re pretty widely available.

    Thanks Russ,

    Just found out I might not be on a SERO plan although I signed up for SERO ages ago (now it shows up as Fair and Flexible 500 for $30) so I’ll have to hold tight until they let us upgrade to Android, le sigh…

    Will patiently wait for any word from Sprint, but just wanted to thank you for providing such invaluable information to your customers, we really appreciate it!

    Ricky, call EPRP customer care and they can fix your account so you have the option to upgrade to SERO Premium: 888-876-8381

    Hi Russ,
    Thanks for the tip, unfortunately I had no luck with it, and ended up super frustrated. My fiancée has a regular Sprint account. I jumped ship from Verizon for her and I to upgrade her plan to the Everything Plus Data plan for $109.99. I was informed over the phone the quickest route to having a new phone in my hand was to purchase the phone at a local sprint store, then call up the employee referral customer service # (866.452.7981) to get the account transferred to the plan I wanted after I activated my phone.

    In no way shape or form did that happen. The store charged me an activation fee and put me on the regular family plan for $130 a month. I bought the phone and handed over some $350, called and so far have spent a few hours on the phone with different customer service reps to no avail. I’m am being told even though I activated a new line of service like it is pretty clearly worded on the sprint.com/everything plus page as “Please note that this website is now only available to new Sprint customers or existing Sprint customers adding a new line of service.”

    According to the rep I spoke to, the “existing Sprint customers adding a new line of service” is only applicable to those ALREADY on the Employee referral plans.

    You are doing a good thing Russ, but if that is the case, I guess a bit of a more clear disclaimer would be helpful to others.

    From the looks of it, I’m going to have to go back to the sprint store, cancel the account I set up yesterday, argue with them about the $35 restocking fee (I haven’t opened ANY of the accessories yet, but I did take the stickers off the phone). Go back to the website, order a NEW INDIVIDUAL line – take ownership of her account – upgrade my just purchased individual employee referral plan to a family plan and add her phone. This just really seems like entirely too much work for something so simple.

    If this was out of line on your blog I’m a bit frustrated, but your blog is what inspired me to jump from Verizon to Sprint, and after all this it’s starting to seem like not the best idea. I was hoping for a much smoother process.

    Nick,

    I’ve tried to make it clear here that you can’t do what you tried to do. In my Everything Plus FAQ (http://mcguireslaw.com/2009/07/24/psst-the-palm-pre-is-now-available-through-everything-plus/) I directly answered your question:

    Why can’t I sign up for this plan in a Sprint retail store? If I get a new phone on another plan in the store, can I then switch it over to this plan? As I understand it, one of the reasons we can offer this great price is because it costs us less to signup new customers through the web than it does to sign up customers in our stores. If you sign up with a different plan in the store, you will not be able to switch to this plan later.

    Sorry.

    Nick,

    I’m sorry for the frustration. Please see http://www.sprint.com/landings/returns/

    Earlier this year, Sprint introduced a unique program in the industry, the Sprint Free Guarantee. From the above link:
    “If for any reason you’re not happy and want to cancel service, just call us to deactivate and return to the original place of purchase to return your undamaged phone or mobile broadband card and we’ll: … [among other things] Waive the restocking fee…”

    You shouldn’t get much of an arguement. We’re trying to make it as easy as possible.

    Thanks,

    Russ

    Hey Russ,

    I was wondering about the new port-in credit that Sprint is offering of $125 for porting in a number and activating a smartphone or $50 for a feature phone. Will this offer apply to the Everything Plus Referral Plan? If it does, I am pretty sure I can get a few people to switch to sprint who were sitting on the fence otherwise. Let me know through this email and hopefully your blog as well so us value hunters can know for sure. It would be great if EPRP plans weren’t excluded on this offer because it is still an Everything Plus plan with data and still subject to the $10 add-on premium data fee. The link to offer is below. Thanks Russ!!!

    Thanks for asking Darin. The answer is “yes” – new lines into Everything Plus do qualify for the port-in credit.
