Default PCS Mail In Rebate

Anyone do this? I have been a customer for more than 18 months, have a plan more expensive than $35/mo, and if I purchase a vision capable phone, I will upgrade [I am not buying a camera phone ] to a vision plan. Finally I can upgrade from this POS 3585.

Sorry for the poor explaination. What I meant was, what were your experiences with it? Has anyone had good/bad experiences.. etc.

Vision capable? Like picture phone? To see the other person, or CAMERA phone? All in all, PCS ain't that great. It'* old technology, and it'* slowly being replaced.

Ones that are Vision Capable.. as in they take pictures. I think. Either way, cameras aren't going to be on my phone. Don't want it, don't need it. If I want to take a picture, I will grab my Digital Camera.

Their networks aren't too bad. I live in a rural area, and the signal isn't too bad. It is definitely talk-able.

Anyone else take advantage of this offer?

This might only be a local thing for you bud. We've done some comparisons in the past on phone service and prices.....

I've got Cingular (formerly AT&T), on the GSM digital wireless network. Phone works on analog too, when roaming.

I have Norther CA, Oregon, WA, and Eastern Idaho for my local area. 1000 anytime minutes, free evenings and weekends started at 7pm. 500 text, VM, and internet (including AIM, MSN, and YIM) on my Motorola V505 for 45 a month.

I just got my rebate check from Verizon, for my camera phone. Only took them about a month, which ain't bad for a rebate...

Damn Bill, that'* cheap. We have 700 anytime minutes, unlimited SMS Messaging. No internet, no vision, etc.. but we have two lines [$10] with free nights and weekends past 7pm [$5]. I think our bill is about $60/mo. We seldom use more than 500 minutes, but it is my mom'* business phone, so it has to have the overhead. And, around here, the only networks that work well, are Nextel and Sprint. Cingular, AT&T, T-Mobile are non-existant and Cingular is full of static. I also have both Analog and Digital roaming, however I haven't roamed since I have had this phone except when I was in Canada..

As you can see, Sprint was the best choice.

SS...Ei: What instant rebates? And, honestly, I don't think anyone owns me. I believe I am not a material object to be owned by anyone/anything. Sorry.

I added another line for Lilpooky for $7.50. She shares my free long distance, anytime minutes, and text messages. She also has free weekends and evenings, but doesn't share my internet.

Both of us have free mobile-mobile to any CellularOne, AT$T, or Cingular customer, including each other.
