I apologize if this his has already been posted (searched and didnt see it). Smoking hot off the press, Sprint is basically matching Sams Clubs price for the S3!!!! nod

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?

I don't have the link to Sams Club. I went to Sams Club the other day, to see if they were going to have it for 96 cent, like they did Nov 17-18 like they did for, I think Att, and to see if they carried Sprint (Morrow, GA) because all Sams do not carry Sprint, and they did, and the Sales Rep there told me they are going to have them, for all the carriers, for 96 cent on BF, and they open at 7am on BF.

I can confirm it does work as well, just call and threaten to get the phone from someone else or leave and they will transfer you to their retention's department and give you the phone for 99 cents. They also waived the activation fee Smilie
