why would you start your call minutes before your N&W starts anyway? whether your N&W starts at 6PM, 7PM or 9PM you should know better to put yourself in the safe side.. duh!

DUH right back at you, pal. This should be obvious to you, but it is not just the case of making outgoing calls. Phones do work both ways, i.e. a person can actually RECEIVE an incoming call before their N&W minutes begin.

BTW, did you bother to notice in that very first post I clearly admitted that my ignorance of the way Sprint handles N&W minutes differently than the other carriers was my own fault? Don't you realize that if a person has already ratted themselves out, you jumping in and bagging on them AFTER they already admitted their error just makes YOU look stupid?

I think if you CAREFULLY read the entire thread, (A) you would not need to ask the question you asked and (B) you might not be so arrogant or sarcastic. Read every word I posted in ALL of my postings of this thread and you'll see that.

Being self-employed, my phone is used for business as well as family calling, and in many cases it is not wise nor appropriate to refuse an incoming call. There are also many personal/family situations when a call has to be made when it has to be made, or the call must be answered right away.

For example, have you ever been responsible for the complete care of another person, everything from day-to-day issues of caregiving, up to and including making the life or death decision for them? You might be surprised to learn how many calls have to be made and received, at all times of day or night, when you're completely responsible for the care of another person who can not care for theirself.

Did it ever occur to you that some people in this world have daily responsibilities far greater than just choosing who to chat with next, and at what time to chat with them?

Did it ever occur to you that sometimes a person's schedule is forced upon them, unlike your life where apparently everything can be done according to your own choice?

No? I didn't think you'd considered anything but your own limited viewpoint.

Man, if you're not actually "gloopey1" posting under the name "genivrej", you must be closely related to "gloopey". Comprehension R not you.

Adios, my friend.
