Sprint's SERO Premium plan is going to be offered to only current SERO customers
Sprint customers who were able to fetch any of the carrier's SERO (Sprint Employee Referral Offer) plans from a few years ago surely are treated to the most valued plans available out there – even making some prepaid plans look bloated. When it was available, the $30/month SERO plan offered customers 500 anytime minutes while offering unlimited texting and data. Unfortunately for many, Sprint phased it out in favor of their "Everything Plus" plans which start at $59.99 and offered the same exact items as the $30/month SERO plan plus Sprint Navigator. However, customers with SERO plans are limited to choosing feature phones, Windows Mobile phone, and older Palm handsets. Unfortunately, you'd have to sign up for an “Everything Plus” plan to experience some other more recent alternatives like webOS and Android devices.

There is good news for those customers who resisted and continue to use their SERO plan as Sprint is about to introduce their SERO Premium plan. Starting on October 1st, current SERO plan holders will have the ability move into one of those alternative devices for an extra $10/month charge. Naturally, there will be an additional $10/month charge if you happen to choose either of the two available 4G enabled devices on their lineup; the HTC EVO 4G and Samsung Epic 4G. So for example, choosing something like a Palm Pre or Samsung Intercept will only cost $40/month and will still offer the same features found on the SERO plan – 500 anytime minutes, unlimited texting, and unlimited data. But if you choose to go with the Samsung Epic 4G, you'll be paying $50/month – which is still impressive in itself.

Now the big question left unanswered in all of this is if Windows Phone 7 devices will be included in this offer, but if it does, there are going to be a plenty of happy SERO customers out there.

SERO plans are for bitches and people that have SERO are the ones that complain the most. I wish Sprint would just disolve the program because MOST of the people that are lucky enough to have SERO plans just don't know how lucky they have it.

And you're on the other side of the bitches who complain because they couldn't get a SERO plan.

thats the sad part.. the cheaper you make it, the more they bitch about it. Force them on to a 120 line and they are happy all of a sudden, even though its the same damn thing.. 2 years from now.. drop it 10 bux and they are even happier.. but they hated being on the same plan for 40 bux. people are so stupid.. LOL.

Yawn, does this really matter? Sprint has the cheapest plans anyway, SERO or no SERO you can't get a more bang for your buck anywhere else.

i did just laugh at the mixture of responses to my original post. i really had 2 point to make here. SERO plans are wonderfully inexpensive. it just seems like many of the fortunate people that have them, seem to be ungratefull for this gifted discount. on top, they seem to have some twisted vision of entitlement when it comes to service. the real matter of fact is most sprint employees HATE sero customers for this reason. Second, i don't need or want a sero. i have an Epic. it's great. i am also blessed enough to have a job with an employer that has a large enough discount to actually be cheaper than a SERO plan. for the good people that have sero plans that appreciate them, im sure you know that this was not directed at you. it was more so aimed towards the unworthy.
