Thread Details

My SERO 500 plan expires in two weeks. I want to renew my plan but upgrade to a smart phone. I am thinking about the Palm Treo 800. However, in reading through some of the threads here it seems that some of the phone upgrades require you to switch plans. My main goal is to keep SERO. Does anybody know what smart phones I can upgrade to without losing SERO?

I tried logging into the "Employees Referring Customers Progam" at http://www.sprint.com/landings/ev...P:20100209 with the email address above, but I'm getting an error message.

Does the email and CID code still work? Or is there another avenue for updating my out-of-contract phone? I've been on the SERO plan for about 4 years now.

Thanks!
You don't need to go through that site to update your phone. That site was only to sign up for SERO. I updated twice, once by phone and the other through the Microsoft store.

just wanna confirm, so you got it for $100, correct? Was that straight up, or after MIR and/or instant rebates?
No MIR. The iphone 6s plus is $299 through sprint.com, at Target it was $249. For iphone 6s it is $199 through sprint.com and $149 at Target. Flat $50 off right there in Target.

Can someone tell me if it still pays to upgrade my old Sero F&F $30 plan? I haven't gotten a new phone in about 10 years and I was probably due about 4 with all kinds of rebates that it's too late to take advantage of. I'm looking at the latest Samsung Galaxy. Any and all advice would be appreciated.

I haven't had SERO for 5 years but it used to be you couldn't upgrade it to something like a Samsung Galaxy. It was very restrictive about what phones you could use it with. With RP/FP these days, I just don't see the point of the SERO plan anymore.

you can upgrade, but you have to move to the data plus plan on Sero which is $50 per month. I haven't upgraded my line for 10 yrs either and am on the crappiest phone. HTC Touch Pro. But I'm so stuck on that $30 plan. I upgraded my mother's line a few months ago and got the Galaxy S6. Battery life is horrible btw. I may jump in on the new is S7 that is said to possibly come out this month or next. The S6 was purchased for $150 thru sero, but I think its the same even if you're not on Sero now.

You can upgrade, whether it pays to or not that's your decision. Most major carriers are not subsidizing phones or offering 2 yr. contracts. Sprint, as always, was last to the party and just announced they will be doing the same. All that means is that people now have to buy the phone outright but carriers break down the price into monthly payments, which is almost like being on a contract. If you do upgrade to a smartphone, especially a 4G/LTE phone, you'll plan will be SEROP at $50 p/mth. Just about every phone out is available on Sprint and SERO, like the iPhone and Android phones. There are more carriers today that offer plans for $50 p/mth or less then when SERO was offered, so do some research, The one advantage with SERO is you have unlimited data if that's your thing. I'm going to assume it's not, since you haven't upgraded in 10 years. If you're happy with Sprint and their service I would say stick with them. You'll have to upgrade either in a Sprint corporate store or by phone. Don't think you can go to like Best Buy and have it done.

I haven't researched phone plans in so long that I'm not even sure what RP/FP stands for! Do you mean the pay as you go plans or the monthly plans where you buy your own phone at a Costco? What did you switch to?

I have an even worse phone and haven't used it in close to two years as I can't even find the charger. I just didn't want to give up the Sero plan!

A few years ago, I was just about to upgrade and then family health problems precluded me from pursuing it. For some reason I just let it go as I don't get that many calls. The reason I'm thinking of Sero is because I really want the unlimited data more than the actual phone. Between streaming audio, video and web searching, that's really all I plan to do with the smartphone.


Is there any other plan that will allow me to do that for $50 a month? Friends tell me about the monthly plans but I'm not sure if those plans give you full unlimited data at top speeds.

They are free plans. You can get 1800mins/1800txts/1800MB per month for free. Except for the data, unlimited on SERO, all those are better than my SERO plan was. Why pay for something you can get for free?

I don't know of any plans that will give you unlimited data for $50. You might want to check on smaller carriers like Virgin Mobile, Republic Wireless, Cricket, etc... T-Mobile lets you stream audio for free and they recently introduced BingeOn which lets you stream video for free with some limitations, that requires a line with a minimum of 3 gb of data but it will cost more than $50.
