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 got approved for the 99 cent price match but they couldn't approve it because I had an employee account. Anyone on SERO have any luck?
No, I am on the shared 1500 family plan.

With the way things are shaping up, I think several retailers are going to have them for 99 cent Friday.

it looks like someone on the last page managed to get it done with a SERO $30 plan.

I'm already on SERO-P and wanted to see if anyone had luck getting the 99 cents with that.

i just called and got flat out denied. I believe it was the "Shantika" woman. Maybe shes the only one working right now?

Brittany just gave me the 99 cent deal. Instead of waiving activation, they offered me $15 for 2 months, so $8 total for the S3!!!

SERO-P here... got shot down 2X. 1st call dude said he couldn't even process a cancellation to go to Sero phone number. 2nd time I was hopeful as Colise was about to process the order, then she put me on hold and came back and said I'd have to call SERO but they probably won't honor the price.
DANG! So close!

I was shot down. My early upgrade fee was $100 whereas my Early Termination Fee was $70. Was not willing to price match at all.

SERO-P - called back to TELESALES SERO Number after shot down 2x on previously listed number. She mentioned the BF $49 sale at midnight, and looked up that number saying that that number is a line for a promotion they are offering to former Nextel owners (but I guess works for all but sero's) where they can get any phone for 99 cents. So maybe they'll even do that Note2 for 99 cents too.
Just want the S3 for my precious Sero plan.

Got the run around 3x now. Regular account services says they can price match to 99 cents but when they send me to to employee accounts to process the order, they say they CANNOT honor the price (even though the price match approval is in my notes). This is really frustrating.

Please let us know if anyone is able to get the 99 cent price on a SERO-P account.

My wife called to upgrade hers. The call was less than 12 minutes. She spoke with a guy named Aaron. She is on the SERO $30 plan but had previously been on the SERO-P plan until she broke her previous smartphone. We have a shared account with separate lines and I am on a SERO-P with the Galaxy S3 already. I checked the status of the order and it exists.

did she just call the regular 888-882-4030 telesales number or is there a different number for SERO and SERO-P accounts?
