    Data Plan

    I am considering getting the data plan for my laptop. I currently have a tmobilie phone and would prefer to keep it and just get a data plan from sprint but had some questions.

    I first off saw some people claiming you can get the data plan for less than the 59.99 on the site. Does anyone know where or can point me in the right direction?

    What are the speeds I am searching for them but haven't had any luck yet.

    Could I get a phone with data plan and just tether it for a better price?

    And anyone in the Lexington, KY to Cincinnati, OH area how is your service?

    Sprint SERO plans offer it for $50, if its worth the trouble to you you may check out info about SERO in the Sprint forum, or search for "Slickdeals SERO official thread" for a good summary.

    Technically, but it would involve getting the $30 SERO calling plan (which comes with unlimited data for your cell), only getting one of the certain phones that would allow you to adjust settings to tether for free without (hopefully) getting caught, and, as I just implied, violating your TOS. I don't think it is worth it overall.

    For the legal route I think its an additional $40 to allow tethering of a cell phone.

    You can tether with any regular voice plan at an additional $40 per month. This feature does not work with the SERO plans.

    Any further discussion of SERO should go into the official SERO thread, please.

    Ok I was just looking at the Sero and got an email a few ago. The $50 version do you have to have a voice plan?

    Nope, because the broadband cards have their own number, but you cant use it to call anyone... i have a broadband card and love it, go to the sero site and get your card for free and 50 bucks a month for unlimited data, hope this helps, because thats what forums are for, but some people like to come on these forums and bash people for asking a question... im sure they know everything


    if you have anymore questions you can pm me

    Also I definitely do appreciate the help. I am sure a good deal of this is on the forum and I am searching for it and have answered 2 of my questions myself. But I am attempting to get more information.

    The best deals on data are not with a SERO plan. If you sign up for the regular $60 plan and qualify for a discount through your employer, you can get the service for less. These discounts are as high as 27%, depending upon where you work. Call 18887884727 to find out whether you're eligible.

    Except, I thought Sprint would not give corporate discounts on data plans(or PAM). The corporate discount only applies to the calling plan(not including SERO) part of ones subscription.

    It seems SERO & corporate discounts aren't suppose to mix, but that hasn't stopped people from getting them applied (including myself).

    Keeping in mind that a lot of people play the CSR game with Sprint, repeatedly emailing and/or calling until they get someone who will do what they want.

    edit: Sorry, that was unclear, what I mean is, don't count on a corporate discount, I think the people that get all the discounts applied are those who lik ea good deal for the sake of a good deal (i.e., like getting a deal, even if the effort put into it outweighs the direct benefit)

    I was under the impression that you could not use corporate discount with data plans. Also I was under the impression you can only get the data plan for $60 if you have a cell phone with Sprint in which I don't.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I just signed up for the $50 Sero plan but have plenty of time to change things. Also I work for Dell which is a 25% discount.

    At my company, the discount applies to all plans and features. The only thing I don't get a discount on is international roaming, ring tone downloads, etc.

    Other companies may have a different discount with Sprint, so call 1-888-788-4727 to find out what you're eligible for.

    To be 100% crystal clear, you CANNOT get a corporate discount on SERO plans. Only regular service plans. Yes, some people have gotten away with badgering Sprint into this, but it's not supposed to happen.

    Now back to regular SEROjacked thread discussion...

    Not really a Sero jacked thread I am asking questions not really about Sero.

    But the question I noticed you didnt answer was:

    I was under the impression you can only get the data plan for $60 if you have a cell phone with Sprint in which I don't.


    If you don't have a phone with them its apparently $80 a month which even with the 25% discount I can receive is still $60.

    aircard charges

    The charge for an aircard plan is 59.99 IF you have a voice account with Sprint PCS. If not it's 79.99 (I just was reading up on this and I think I am right re price.

    My wife works for a nationally known Mega research hospital, they give discounts on everything BUT the aircard service but they give you the rebates and instant discounts on the card, just like any regular customer.
