Embarq, the wireline phone company spun of from Sprint, today launched wireless services using Sprint's network. They will offer bonuses to their wireline subscribers, giving them extra minutes and free calls between wireless and wireline phones on the same bill with some plans. Embarq is also offering an add-on service for unlimited calls to five phones regardless of network, similar to Alltel's plan. The service is launching with select entry-level Sprint handsets as well as the PPC 6700 smartphone and Novatel EV-DO high speed wireless data card.

This oughta' be good. Do they mean to tell me that I can save even more money with my bundled svcs by switching from Sprint-Nextel for wireless to Embarq??? I don't see it...
The phone selection is horrible. I wouldn't have offered the Pantech and (2) LGs to an MVNO catering to the cavemen from the Geico commericals....
YOu will save money!!!! Sprint offers the best price plans out there.....i only spend like 60 bucks a month.....its great!!!!! and now i can bundle my landline service....they probably give me a better deal...whohooo!!!!
Are they going to force existing bundled svc customers (as I) who have Sprint (now Embarq) local/LD and Sprint-Nextel wireless over to Embarq's MVNO???
