Samsung Galaxy s2 in white

Hello, Please help someone. I have Sprint for a carrier. I am up for my renewal date and am looking for the Samsung Galaxy S2 in WHITE. Sprint does not carry it in white from what I have found out. T Mobile has it but that ofcourse doesnt help me. Does anybody know where I can order it in white?
Thank you, Betty

New Upcoming Phones after the Holidays?

I have my upgrade eligibility coming up on the 1st of the year in 2012. Please enlighten me on the new upcoming phone release prospects that Sprint will be having here shortly?

And before any of you come out blurting to go and get an iPhone 4s, I already added a 3rd line on my account and I'm not looking for reduncancies at all. I'd prefer a differnet device altogetehr as this will help my Freelance Mobile App Testing Profile as well to have different devices available to me.

Any input here is appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

Riddle me this about $10 data premium.

If you order a 3G only smartphone via most any website the extra monthly $10 fee is tacked on.
But if I go through a employee discount website ( I can uncheck the $10 add on, making Sprint a very attractive carrier.

So if I ordered a 3G only smartphone without the $10 add on, would data still work, would the $10 get added on without my knowing, etc? Confused
The plan says it comes with "Sprint data essentials pack". Is that some kind of limited data pack that wouldn't allow me full use of a 3G only smartphone?

does anyone have the number to sprint where we can possibly call and get a customer a warranty replacement sent?

We are not a repair center here, so whenever a customer comes in with any, even simple, warranty problem; we have to direct them to the nearest repair center. The closest one being 35 miles away.

Sprint said there is no other way around this and I hate breaking customers down every time I run into this.

If anyone needs Account Services direct line, I am happy to provide that though =P

***early upgrades***

sprint is "secretly" doing early upgrades at cor stores for some customers, if you call in to customer service to see if they can get the early upgrade available it usually works

got 4 customers today so far just by callin in (and waiting about a half hour or so)

all of those customers were eligible for upgrade aug next year or sooner

I know someone who has Sprint and this person told me he recently got a letter in the mail a few months ago from Sprint saying that they were going to cancel his Simply Everything plan this month. This person said he already went to a local Sprint store and they told him that was not going to happen. Is the Simply Everything plan that Sprint offers really going to be phased out?

Attention Sprint Reps: Help Required

Hello to one and all. I work for a company called TelTech, who owns and runs one of the most popular and effective security programs for mobile devices called TrapCall. TrapCall allows users to unmask blocked, private, withheld, and hidden phone numbers that call their phones. We, however, have been having a long struggle with Sprint. Our service works off of Conditional Call Forwarding. Because of this process, we must manually send calls to customers' Voicemail boxes if they choose to use them. We requested this Voicemail access information from Verizon, at&t, and t-mobile, who provided it without a problem. Sprint, however, is the only carrier that either refuses to give us the needed information, or simply has no clue what it is. Because...

Premiere Question

Knowing that the Premiere program is ending, I currently am eligible for my 1-year upgrade. If I cash that in on a new phone now (before the end of the year) will I still get one more 1-year eligibility upgrade in 2012?

I was trying to make sense of it from this article: ng-premier-program/ the article says "can use their qualifying upgrade through 12/31/12"?

I'd like to get a new phone now, but also wouldn't want to miss out on any new LTE devices released by this time next year (iPhone 5?, Samsung S3?, WinPhone 8?, etc...)

Thanks for the help!
