You are yelling at the wrong company blame HTC or better yet blame Samsung who makes the LCD panel, thats the reason they are in short supply. Research before you post.

What you say may have been true in the past but nowdays it is all about the money. Bottom line is that you can complain as much and as hard as you want the $30 dollar SERO plans do not make money for Sprint and in most cases loses money based on the Data usage alone. Retention has been coached in recent months to look at monetary value of accounts and if its not at certain levels to simply deny the request or let that customer go. In the case of the old SERO plans they have been taken completely out of the system so if for any reason whatsoever that plan comes off your account it can NEVER get put back on, the codes for old SERO plans simply do not exist anymore. Also you can go as high up the chain as you possibly can no one at any level will be able to add a hero to the account with a SERO plan code in place. What you haven't realized is the realeasing of all these new cool phones with plan limitations are designed to get people to switch to a plan that makes money for Sprint and quit just being a drain on their resources.

Also consequently that is why you cannot have phone as a modem on any of the new phones that require those plans (Instinct, Pre, Hero) because all data plans that are used while tethered to a computer (including the data card plans) have to have a 5 gigabyte cap built in to prevent torrenting and such so the network dosen't implode like AT&T's is. The Simply Everything plans include unlimited data on the handset but cannot differentiate between that and tether mode, hence no Sprint supported tethering when on a everything plan.

If you really really want a Pre or a Hero but still refuse to pay full plan price for it try to get whoever worked for Sprint that you knew at the time that got you on the SERO to get you on the new Everything Plus referral plans.

Yeah they aren't $30 SERO plans but you still save a few bucks.

Oct 8th 2009 9:25PM And you only need to wait a bit longer...

"Starting Nov. 1, customers can purchase Samsung Moment through all Sprint channels including Web (www.sprint.com), Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) and our national retail partners. Retail pricing will be $179.99 (excluding taxes) after a $50 instant savings and a $100 mail-in-rebate with a two-year service agreement." -from press release today

I wasn't real thrilled about Samsungs earlier Instincts but mostly it was thier software since this is android I expect better things.

Oct 8th 2009 8:21PM The system is hard coded to only let that phone on the account with an everything plan in place. He may have ordered the phone but wait till he tries to swap it onto the line. Ain't happenin. Sucks but thats the way it is.

Oct 8th 2009 8:18PM Yeah it'll remain on the Sero plan right up to the point he tries to swap the phone over. the system is hard coded to not let that phone along with the Pre and Instinct on without an everything plan.

Aug 4th 2009 11:51PM If its the $60 SERO that is the new EPRP plan which will work with all the new phones even the PRE its that old $30 SERO that won't work with the new phones.

Review: G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra {Cinematical}

Aug 4th 2009 11:29PM Hopefully the decision to not screen the movie for critics will payoff. I don't expect this to do as well as Revenge of the Fallen, but I am sure it will make enough that we see GI JOE II: The Government Strikes Back

It is actually Spiderman 2 which is the Doc Ock story which renders your whole argument moot. Spiderman 1 wasn't amazing but 2 was the best of the series and blows Steel out of the water.
