ok, so T-Mobile has be fuming. My old MDN, bless its heart, had broke recently. There may be the option of turning in my old smartphone for $100 credit . so that I can get $100 off of the retail price of the TP2 retailed at around $550.00. There is the option with my plan to buy it today at $190 plus $19 added to every month for 20 months. so that I will still pay the FULL RETAIL PRICE OF THE PHONE... with less than 1.5G coverage in data..
lets move to Sprint. I can open a new account and get the same phone CDMA for $599.99retail, $-100 mail in rebate, $-150 new customer two year service agreement. So that in all i pay $349.99 for the phone THATS more than $100 CHEAPER... and this includes the FULL 3g coverage data.
On the issue of Sprint's plans. I currently have their Everything Data 450 plan. I have 450 anytime minutes with Unlimited Text, Unlimited Data and Unlimited Pic/Video, GPS Navigation and TV and Radio all for $69.99 before tax. I also have the $7.00 Equipment replacement plan. I have an employee discount of 27% so that helps out. I love my plan. I know 450 mins is not a lot but it is enough for me. I don't talk all that much but I sure do text and check email and from time to time I go on the internet. So yes it is worth it havinig unlimited text, data and pic mail.
