hi all, i'm the original poster to this topic.

I would like to know if anyone has been able to clone a sero account for their friend without having to do the TOL. i don't want to get the plan and do the TOL. would i be able to call or login to chat and telll them my cousin wants the same plan as me, but i don't want to take responsiblity to his plan, therefore could they put him on the same plan under his own name?

i haven't check back to this thread for ages. it seems like there's a lot of success stories.. hopefully everyone is satisfied with their plan now.
btw, i hope everyone utilize the repping feature on this forum. THANKS


PLEASE STOP PM-ING ME. I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ASSIST ANYONE IN GETTING THIS PLAN.

Quote from Briefmyth View Post :
FYI...

The plan code for the sero 500 minute is "FF1077" Tell them you want that plan and it's still active in the computer

The sero 1250 plan code is FF1079

Make sure you say another REP gave you the plan codes and told you that you could do it. This worked for me on the first try. The guy gave me the plan codes and told me if I had any trouble or wanted to call in and get another line to use those codes.

Original plan
Sero F&F 500mins for $30

i just called and successfully added

Newly added
1x $30 fair and flex - 500mins
1x $49.99 Fair and Flex - 1250mins

called this number 1-888-882-4030

basically if your an existing Sero customer with old grandfathered plan and you want another line for a family member now you can successfully do this.

what i did was call that number above. i told him that i would like to add a line to my existing phone service. the rep asked for my number and name, he also wanted to confirm my identity, next he proceeded asking what i would like to do. i told him i was interested in signing up one more line with the same plan i have now. he told me i can add up to 10 numbers on my account and it wouldn't be a problem. i was able to get the old $30 bucks a month plan without compromising existing plan. he also allowed me to order another line on the old $49 plan with 1250 mins. this plan was the old sero plan that no longer exist.

Steps taken:
  • 1-888-882-4030
  • be polite
  • ask if your talking to the Sero Department
  • ask politely if you can add a line to your account
  • rep would confirm your identity then perhaps ask what your trying to do
  • explain that you want to open another line with the same sero plan you have now
  • hopefully everything went well
  • confirm what he did to your account
  • ask for his name and say thanks...
  • your done

NOTES - make sure you takes notes and keep logs just in case Sprint tries to screw you.
  • ask for the reps name and write down the date and time of call.
  • make sure you ask him to repeat the changes
  • double check what other things he's done to the account other then adding a new line

Hope this info is useful. i don't know if it has been posted before.

If you don't believe me, check my attachment picture

here are 2 successful stories that have been buried in the long sero thread

I am thinking about making into the modern world of smart phones and such. I have an original $30 SERO plan with a dumb phone. If I change my plan to a SERO-P plan it seems like my payment will go from $30 to $50. Does anyone know if I can apply my corporate discount then? I tried to get it applied to the $30 plan way back when but was told that it couldn't be applied to a SERO plan. Also, would all the Sprint phones be available to me or just certain phones? Particularly the Samsung SIII.
After you change your plan to the SERO-P $50 plan, you can use any phone. It is still the same as far as discounts, you can't add any discount with SERO.

Thanks for the info. That is what I thought but wasn't too sure. Looks like I'll probably just go with Virgin instead since it will save me about $15/month. Just wish they had newer phones.

No corporate discounts are allowed on any of the SERO plans.

All the phones that Sprint carries are available to you once you upgrade your plan to SEROP. It all depends on which type of phone you get when it comes to the monthly charge. I have the HTC Arrive and my plan is $40 + tax and fees = $47. There aren't many phones to choose from any more that will qualify for the SEROP $40. Most of today's smartphones will cost you $50 a month + tax and fees.

Same here, I've got Galaxy s3 online with 2nd (new) line. When I received phone I called Sprint about 10 times in order to activate it and change plan to sero premium.Those mother-truckers reject me 9 times, but 10th time was successful. And as a result, I have sero premium on both lines. Big Grin Big GrinBig Grin

I don't think so, first you got to buy a new phone with any offered plan and after you receive the phone you try to change your plan to a sero premium. BUT!!! In order to do so, you need to have at least one existing sero or sero premium plan.

I already have a SEROP with iPhone 5. The other 2 are on the family choice plan for more than 10 years but I can't use smart phone without loosing that grandfather plan. I want to switch them to SEROP so I can use smart phone like S3 or iPhone 5.
