    • I plan to switch my kids. They are on Republicwireless for $15/month with no data ($5 for 1 Gb). I'm trying to decide between $15/month with indeterminate duration or free for a year. Not sure if I can do this under my SSN. If not, I'd register them using my wife's.
    • My wife is on Sprint, but through my account. While she could start her own account under her SSN, I think she'd lose her phone number and need a new phone (since both are registered with Sprint).
    • While I want to try Project Fi, I think I could "switch" to Sprint, too. My soon-to-arrive Moto G6 isn't registered on Sprint, and I could either port my Google Voice number (or, forward it, which I was hoping to avoid). I really like the idea of saving some $$.
    My experience with Sprint service has been good. There are a few locations that are dead or weak (like near my house), but that hasn't been a big deal for me. I haven't had to deal with customer service in a while. What to do, what to do? :)

    I just ordered 2 SIM cards from Sprint and will port my kids' phones over next week. The SIM cards are $2.99 each, $10 overnight shipping, plus $1.18 tax ($17.16 total today). The activation fee is $30/account, but that should get credited back over the next 3 invoices.

    The receipt is very strange.

    The expenses I already listed are under the 'paid today' column, and I see a $17.16 pending charge on my credit card. The monthly column shows $5 AutoPay discount for each line. I expected that, too. But, there's another $5 credit per line that I didn't expect: Get an additional $5/mo. off because of where you work with the Sprint Works Program. The total under the monthly column shows $20 for both lines!!! I'm not about to complain. :D Oh....I sure hope they don't try to verify my work -- that was way back when I worked at US Bank. :eek:

    Been 20 years since I started working for TCF Bank. Have not been there in a very long time, and not in the capacity you were. Where I was going with this, I don't know... :)

    Grok, both the lost destinational train of thought, and the phone ISP not checking employer discounts <g>

    Jig, any indication of what happens after a year? Are you bound by a contract or can you walk away if you don't like what happens to the price after a year. Sprint claims great coverage in my area (though I have no idea), so it is tempting though I hate contracts.
