    Another prepaid win...

    and contract customers like me can't help, but think we made the wrong choice. As a Sprint customer, I'm paying $50 more a month for service on the same network with a contract meaning extra fees added in. For someone who loves Sprint's service, but has trouble keeping up with their bills, its a kick that makes me want to break the contract jump over and get those savings - I've estimated something between $50 - $65 a month and that's not even including all the fees. I emailed Sprint's president and let Mr. Hesse know how really unfair this is to Sprint customers who have remained loyal, despite hard times. If anyone else feels the same way, visit http://sites.google.com/site/sprintcustomersunite/ and let Mr. Hesse know.
