Just picked one up for $288 - $100 MIR = $188

$30 a month gives you the following :

Sprint Employee Referral Offer 500
Sprint Vision or Power Vision Included Free
Transform your wireless experience from functional to fantastic with features and content that are very visual, extra entertaining, and perfectly personalized. Customers who choose a Power Vision(sm) or Sprint PCS Vision(sm) phone will also receive:

- Unlimited Web access
- Unlimited email and instant messaging - AOL, MSN and Yahoo
- Unlimited Sprint PCS Picture Mail(sm) with Video Mail


Unlimited Night & Weekend Minutes
Night & Weekend Minutes are used from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., Monday through Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday. If your Sprint PCS Service Plan does not include Night & Weekend Minutes, then minutes used during this time would count towards your Anytime Minutes. Night & Weekend Minutes are also shared between all phones on a Sprint PCS Add-a-Phone account.
Unlimited Mobile To Mobile Calling
Make and receive calls directly to and from Sprint PCS and most Nextel subscribers while on the Nextel national Network without using your service plan minutes. Excludes Nextel subscribes in certain markets.
Nationwide Long Distance
Long distance calls made on the Sprint Nationwide PCS Network are included in your minutes for no additional charge. International calling is not included.
Crystal-Clear Calls
Because Sprint has the largest all-digital, all-PCS nationwide network, you will enjoy crystal-clear calls while on the Sprint Nationwide PCS Network.
Voice Mail
Voicemail answers your calls and takes messages when you're not available. Voicemail allows you to retrieve your messages quickly and easily. Just press one button, check your voicemail, then press a button to return a call.
Caller ID
Caller ID shows you the numbers for most incoming calls, so you know who's calling before you answer. If you don't want to answer your Sprint PCS Phone, you can let the incoming call roll to your voicemail box. Caller ID works whenever your phone is on. It even works when Call Waiting alerts you of an incoming call. What's more, Caller ID safeguards your wireless calling privacy with Caller ID Block. When you initiate a call, you can decide whether your phone number is shown to the person you're calling. For maximum flexibility, you can activate Caller ID Block on a call-by-call basis or choose permanent call blocking.
Call Waiting
Call Waiting helps ensure that all your important calls get through when you're talking on another call. When you hear the distinct Call Waiting tone, glance at the Caller ID on your Sprint PCS Phone's digital display to see who's calling. Then you can decide whether you want to switch to the new call.
Numeric Paging
You can receive numeric pages on your Sprint PCS Phone instead of voicemail messages. When Numeric Paging is turned on, your voicemail will prompt callers to either leave a voice message or send a numeric page.
Three-Way Calling
Three-Way Calling lets you talk to two people at the same time. You can use Three-Way Calling even if you didn't start the phone call. (Airtime and long-distance charges apply for both of the calls in your Three-Way Calling party.)
Call Forwarding ($0.20/min)
With Call Forwarding, all your incoming calls will be forwarded to the phone number you specify—not your Sprint PCS Voicemail box—and you won't hear a single ring on your Sprint PCS Phone. You can activate and deactivate Call Forwarding as you need it—changing the forwarding number when the need arises. Each forwarded call costs $0.10 per minute, plus any additional long-distance charges.
Sprint PCS Directory Assistance ($1.40 per call, plus airtime)
Just dial 411 on your Sprint PCS Phone to access a variety of convenient services - phone numbers, driving directions, show times, restaurant reservations and more! For only $1.40 per call, plus airtime charges, you can receive up to three requests per call and be automatically connected at no additional charge.
Casual Text Messages ($0.10 per international message, $0.15 per international message)
Text Messaging is a global phenomenon which has changed the way people communicate. Utilizing the keypad of your phone as a "typewriter," you can create short messages from your phone or our website and send them to almost any phone in the United States while on Sprint PCS network! Learn the lingo... For example, "see you later" is commonly sent as "C U L8R." Whether your phone uses Short Mail or SMS to send text messages, it is a simple, fun, discreet way to get your message delivered, and the easiest way to communicate. Snd a txt 2day!
Plan minutes are anytime minutes
Plan minutes are anytime minutes
if you go through SERO if not you can still get the phone w/ a 2 yr contract from sprint for $199 AR

2 Day review on this phone so far......

1. Speaker phone quality is GOOD!
2. When using Phone w/ MS Voice Command phone use is simple. There is a hack to get BT Headset to work w/ MS Voice Command.
3. Battery cover is flimsy but hey..
4. Battery life is Average. ( Buy an extended battery from Fleabay for $20.)
5. EVDO, BT, Wifi work flawlessly!
6. Speed is GREAT!
7. Setting up POP email was a simple
8. Setting up Exchange email account was way too easy.
9. People say you can't do Picture Mail on this..well they are wrong there is a hack for that also <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

more to come...

Does Power Vision include EV-DO or will they attempt to charge extra for that?

Sackajacka said: [Q]Does Power Vision include EV-DO or will they attempt to charge extra for that?
Includes.


This is my second phone via SERO first one was Samsung A940 and i have EVDO on it.

where can I get an e-mail for the SERO plan? Will I be able to convert my plan over? Finally, I don't see any Text Messaging with SERO, am I reading it wrong?

rwaheed said: [Q]where can I get an e-mail for the SERO plan? Will I be able to convert my plan over? Finally, I don't see any Text Messaging with SERO, am I reading it wrong?

You need to get an email addy from a sprint rep or anyone you know that knows a sprint rep<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border=0>

TXT msg not included <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0>

Where did you find this rebate and how do you know it is valid with a SERO plan? The SERO website has the price of the phone at $288 without any rebates. There are no rebates available when you order.

it is posted on sprints website and microsoft mobile website...beleive me it is legit....

Sprint website scroll down

It's a manufacturer rebate. It's legit.

Final reason for me to jump to Sprint. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0> Thanks OP.

I've tried this phone before switching to A900. Didn't like it. Battery life is HORRIBLE, for example. Also it's way too bulky. Horizontal keyboard isn't great either. On-screen dial only sucks. Don't waste your money and go for the Q or Treo or Blackberry.

Anything you need/want to know about this phone available here

The question is - will this phone last 2 years ?! Most people recommend getting a 1 year deal.

I have the PPC 6700 and the $30/month SERO plan. It is fantastic. The 6700's are very powerful and flexible PDA with WM5 but are not that easy to use as a phone. Unlimited EVDO is great!

Love the phone.

But EOL is this month, FYI.

JUST to clearify:

To access web unlimited does not mean you can use this phone as the modem to get broadband from Sprint.

Also, if you live in rural area, the reception is sucks.

Just returned and deactivate the sero plan myself......

But I will give you a green.

Actually, you're wrong. The PPC-6700 is the only EVDO phone that does not support sprint's tethering restrictions. You can use it as a modem with your laptop/pda all you want and will not get charged extra.

Currently have SERO and PPC6700.

Agree with Archon810, the battery is worse than horrible!! If you are getting this phone, make sure you get an extra battery for it. It doesn't even last a day (casual phone user myself)! Functions are great.

Although not too happy with the phone, I am very happy with the plan (500 minutes with 7pm Night). Paying ~$20 a month with all the discounts, you can beat that anywhere else.

*****Please don't PM me on how to get the discounts. You can find more information HERE*****

im looking at the sero site and cant see the 6700 anywhere there, can someone point me in the right direction? thanks

premed428 said: [Q]im looking at the sero site and cant see the 6700 anywhere there, can someone point me in the right direction? thanks

It's there; I just checked. Need to have a valid sprint email to log in. That's all.

Is this really unlimited? I've heard some stories of people being shut off for too much use or being charged excess $$$ ? Any truth to this?

If this really unlimited then I could possibly use this as my regular broadband connection for my desktop as I am in a place where I can't get regular phone co/cable broadband easily but am in the EV-DO coverage area.

Someone please clarify this. thanks.

What is EOL?


Thanks to the OP for posting this. Been waiting to get another rebate on this phone.

You can use your phone as a modem. It's just not broadband speeds. I do it on my SERO Treo 650 all the time.

So this is really $30 a month for 500 minutes and unlimited data??? Seems insanely cheap. Also, I currently have a Cingular 2125 that I quite like. COuld I buy this and sell the phone...then transfer my cingular phone to this plan? ANybody know?

Edit: okay, so I definitely can't transfer my 2125 (Cingular) over, but could I buy this phone, get the plan, then sell the phone and buy another (Sprint compatible) phone on eBay and transfer the plan there? Or does this plan have to stay only with this phone? Thanks.

SoyChulo said: [Q]
What is EOL?

End Of Life. Means that they are retiring the phone.

For those who think it is a bad deal since the phone is being retired...i'll have to disagree...just because it is being retired does not make this a poor model etc....Just means new bleeding edge stuff is coming out that will cost you about $600 and will probably have just a few more features....THIS PHONE IS SWEET....BT, WIFI, EV-DO ALL IN ONE PACKAGE IS NON EXISTANT EXCEPT ON THIS BABY.....


FOR THOSE WHO JUMP ON THIS MAKE SURE YOU VISIT THE FORUMS FOR THIS PHONE! There are updates to the firmware etc....

I am ready to jump .... But this plan seems way too cheap?? Can anyone who is on this plan comment? Thanks! Also when on the plan how hard is it to add or remove extra services?

Also don't see nights and weekends, but guess you could add that for 10.00

I have this plan for a year now ..
excellent plan if ur area has good sprintpcs signal .. otherwise it's frastrating ..
It does include weekends and nights ( starting from 9:00 PM not 7PM)
U can add other features for extra.

And those of u who are thinking using this phone to get internet in ur laptop or PC ( through phone #777 ) for free , sprint will cancel ur power vision once u move from casual to regular usage.

Not true...i tether daily w/ #777 and have had no issue for almost a year now....

Not true...i tether daily w/ #777 and have had no issue for almost a year now....

You are correct, but the PPC-6700 is even better. The reason is simple. Unlike other phones that people used with Sprint to connect to the internet, when you use this phone (PPC6700) to browse the internet it also uses #777 by default. So they have no way of knowing if you are downloading MP3's or video's to the phone or through the phone to a laptop or other PC. You can use bluetooth or USB. Both work great. This is the only Sprint phone with this ability to use #777 without fear. The phone has the ability to download and play any form of music or video, and using the bandwidth required to download these is included, so huge downloads are nothing unusual with this phone, even when not used as a modem. No "Red Flags" pop up on their end because the phone suddenly is downloading max data. Still, do not abuse this or they could someday stop or limit the data the phone could receive (nothing to do with phone as modem).

As a phone, it is not that great, unless you get a bluetooth headset, and setup the included voice dialing, then it is O.K. Without bluetooth, on screen phone buttons are and menu's are not easy to use.

Built in wireless is also great. I map a network drive on desktop, link to it from PPC6700, and play the desktops huge library of MP3's while out it the back yard, through Logitech Bluetooth (for ipod) headphones, and it's great. I have also used Orb to watch recorded movies off another one of my PC's while traveling in another state. This is a good example of the sort of streaming video that uses the unlimited data to the max, yet still falls well within the Sprint TOS agreement. True unlimited data.

I've also installed PCAnywhere and can access any desktop running PCAnwhere from this phone, which opens up a whole new area of things you can do.

The included unlimited Sprint to Sprint allowed me to switch from a previous 1200 minute plan to the 500 minute plan, and still not come close to going over, as everyone here now seems to have Sprint for best reception (west central florida).

I got my phone on eBay for $100, (like 100's of others), instant rebates when signing new line of service, and after the required 30 days of the starter $60 plan, was able to switch to the SERO plan with a phone call to Sprint. Later switched existing plans on other phones to SERO as well. Have had the PPC-6700 since about February, or 8 months.

Another tip is the first week you have the phone, call Sprint and tell them you want the $5 monthly customer loyalty discount. Yep, even a customer for only one week is eligible. You can use it to get N&W at earlier time, or just get $5 off your bill. I actually got both, because I was told N&W were to start at 7pm, which later was charged $5 for. After calling and telling them it was supposed to be free, they credited account $5 each month to make it free, then also took off $5 for loyalty discount. Great company to deal with!!!!

i had this phone for about 5 months until i broke the the joystick on it. this phone does a lot of things, but the weakest thing about this smartphone is the phone part. as a phone i missed a lot of calls, but from what i've read that is a common issue. as a modem the phone works great, surfing the phone with EVDO is almost comparable to DSL. bluetooth works fine. i've even used the infra red which also worked fine. so if a EVDO modem or pda is more important than a reliable phone than this is the way to go. i got so tired of missing calls i ended up getting a katana which is a great phone, but that's pretty much all it does. i'm going to wait and see if they get the bugs worked out with the PPC-6800

I ordered late friday night. Did others in this time period get any kind of agnowledgement?
