I’ve heard that existing SERO customers will be able to upgrade to a premium plan that will allow upgrading to iconic devices. I haven’t heard the same for F&F, so doubt that one’s true. More info should be coming at sprint.com/everythingplus soon.
Note - this will only be for existing SERO customers.
this pretty much confirms it all. That combined with previous statements of how SERO was stopped because we used soo much Data it cost too much and lost them money.
Combined with how Sprint says its cheaper for them to produce 1GB of 4G Data cheaper than anyone else.
So if you don't have a SERO plan now, this is not for you.

Ditto on the bitter folks. Plenty of them around that repeatedly insist that there are no changes coming when all evidence points otherwise.
They can keep hoping and praying that nothing happens but those of us that waited will be laughing it up (at least I hope) come October.
Glad I held out!

Is this a literature analysis class?

I'm on the boat who is certain that a change is coming.
For all the doubters, can you give me past history where Sprint leaks similar information and backed off later? Otherwise, your analysis or argument is pretty meaningless to me. Your posts make me laugh.

Thank you for being so gracious to answer all of our questions. Your responses have been very helpful to us all, and there is some debate as to exactly what the conversation between you and user Elliott on July 28th means for SERO users.
Specifically, does the opportunity for SERO users to switch plans on October 1 provide SERO users the opportunity to upgrade to a plan that would;
Cost $10 more ($40/month for users of the $30 F&F SERO 500 users)
Include Any Mobile Anytime
Include Text Messaging
Allow the addition of iconic devices (including the HTC EVO and Epic) for the $10 “iconic device” usage fee.
Whether you’re able to divulge this information, I am not sure, but it will save internet posters and your call centers time and trouble through speculation.
I appreciate your time and trouble, and would definitely enjoy hearing any specific information you can provide.

@mdb, I just passed along your question and the answer back was “yes on all counts”. (I think there’s another $10 charge for the EVO on top of the premium charge, but I could be wrong.) Good news?
