We are encouraged to offer these plans to attract new customers. You could say I take that encouragement to extremes, lol. I love working at Sprint, I think we have a lot to offer, I like having the opportunity to share that with people who geek out over smartphones like I do

I've been on Sprint for several years with SERO that my neighbor got me on. It's changed a bit over the years, but with the unlimited mobile to mobile/data/text it is the best bang for the buck around. I had four lines, and two of us switched to AT&T since Sprint couldn't get our Blackberry issues resolved, and I'm not an android fan. But now that Sprint has the iPhone, I will be able to port these numbers back, and save about $40/month on my bill. Sure there are pros and cons to all carriers, but Sprint has always done right by me (except for not getting the iPhone soon enough).

@CowLikeObject, thanks for all the information so far! I've bookmarked this thread, but I have a couple questions.
I don't see a place to port my number over in the online form. I was thinking of doing the google voice thing you were talking about, because I'm all ready with sprint. Would I have to call in after I got my phone to port my number into the sero plan if I made one?
Also, I might not need sero if the discounts don't stack on top of each other. I got my Palm Pre through another employee who gave me a 20% employee discount, which looks like it's saving me a little more than sero would. Do employee discounts automatically transfer over to a new 2 year contract every time?
* If you are done with your contract you can do like you suggested and port your number to Google Voice. Then open a new account (be sure to close the old one first) on the SERO plan. Then port your number back from Google.
* If you still have time left on your contract you could open a new SERO account, and pay for both plans until the original contract is satisfied. In the mean time you can use Google Voice to port your original number to the new phone (I think?).
It sounds to me, though, that you already have a SERO plan. If that is the case then you are golden. You can just log into MySprint and upgrade your phone. Your plan should carry over, but you may be confronted with the new $10 a month Premium Data smartphone charge (which is probably why your plan is currently cheaper).
BTW, the place to port the number over - for those interested - is located a couple of pages into the buying process. It'll be on the bottom of one of the pages, IIRC, though the website changes often so I could be wrong.
Hope this helps. I'm an IT geek, so the rules of sales are not exactly in my realm.

As long as we're selling iPhones they will be available on the referral plan... unfortunately we've been selling out of them as fast as we can get them from Apple. If you see them in stock I would recommend hitting the "Buy" button as fast as you can. He who hesitates is lost.

When trying to buy the iphone, I dont see any information regarding warranty, but does it come with it? I dont see how I can get or choose coverage, excluding apples 99 dollar warranty.
Edit: applecare + says it offers 1 year hardware coverage, and another 1 year if I purchase the applecare+. So I go to apple if I have a problem with phone? Correct me if im wrong.
