My dad called 7 plus times because of a billing issue and then he seen the deal for .99 and it just worked in his favor. And as far as the CS rep was talking, they DIDNT want to loose his business..

Only keep calling 7+ times if you don't value your account. Sprint has terminated service of people who call them too many times with issues.

This is active now, you have to call 1888-273-9460 .This is the retentions dept. and takes about 20 mins from start to finish. They are going to tell you they cant do it and they will only give us the 49.99 price. Just keep calling if they dont give you the price. My dad called and they said I see that you have called 7 times and your account is at risk (as in my dad was not being treated right, and he could potentially cancel the service ) what can we do. And he just said that he wanted the Sams club price match of .96, but Sprint does .99. She put him on hold a bit, but then it went thru. Good luck.

Guys This DOES work with current account eligible for upgrades too.


888-882-4030 for Everything Plus Plans. I called this number 2 times. The second time I asked to speak to their supervisor, the supervisor knew exactly what I was talking about and transfered me to Account Services. I made sure that the supervisor stayed on the line with me during the transfer. The Account Services rep was confused at first, but after she spoke to her supervisor everything was a go.

Works FINE for Sero-P Customers Smilie


SPHL710WTK = WHITE
SPHL710KTS = BLUE
***D710, SPHD710KIT SPHD710WTS SPHD710GYS = Galaxy SII not SIII

For SERO legacy, when you review your account after the purchase, do you see the plan change or would this be later after receiving the phone and activating it?

DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO UPGRADE TO THE 32GB OR 64GB MODELS!
Upgrade yourself for only $42 for 64gb of blazing fast Class 10 storage from Sandisk (a reliable brand) and Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009QZH6JS/
You will have a total of 80gb:

16 GB internal
+ 64 GB microSD
==============
80 TOTAL STORAGE!! (how do you like them apples!?!?)

Best practice for managing storage:
  1. Update the setting on your camera to save pictures and video to your new 64gb mSD card
  2. Use the internal 16gb storage for ONLY apps & widgets
  3. From now on, put music, movies, other files ONLY on your 64gb mSD card
  4. Profit!!!!!

from that other site...

So i called Sprint.xom to check how i can upgrade for $49.99 one of my lines and she said it's will be $50 to move my upgrade date which is 71 days away to today and get the Galaxy for .99 cents... I said what ?! a hwat you say there, i say ?
So today through Sprint the're doing the "metalic", "titanium" color type only for .99 cents+tax
Still Great deal for me and I thought maybe for someone else.
$50 early upgrade fee
.99 galaxy s3 titanium
3.35 taxes
$36 activatino
- $25 network credit to offset some of the activation fee

happy holidays!

For all that are reading this - I love slickdeals and may be jeporadizing me getting my phones (Slickdeal affect!! Roll Eyes (Sarcastic) ), but this is what I did. I have 2 lines and one was up for upgrade, and one was not. So I called them about that, and they gave me some spell about way, and I could do a $50 buyout to get both lines eligible for the upgrade (I was ready to go to Sams or jump on one of those $48 deals); So when I called back to do the $50 buyout today, I spoke to the Accounts Service Retention Dept, and was talking to the guy about BF, and he was like yeah, there are going to be some deals out there. And next thing you know, he mentioned that they were going to be doing their own $.99 deal! And guess what?!?!?! IT IS LIVE TODAY!!!!

I had to share this with my Slickdeals Family, because of all the deals I have got over the years!! Good luck!!!!
