I have to tell you all I am near tears right now.  I am so stoked that Marcelo listened to us, directly.  I am sure he listened to all the feedback he heard.  But I believe S4GRU was influential in th

I'm still shocked and amazed how successful S4GRU has been in staying online, remaining relevant and keeping quality members and staff all with member donations from a relatively small pool. When we

Maybe he's outside of the city limits. He'll tweet as soon as he's back in town with a data connection.

Something might be happening fast. Im listening to marcelo's town hall meeting and he is talking down framily for being to complicated. He keeps mentioning new simplified plans but isnt giving details. I also just found out stores are closing early Monday for mandatory training. Id guess that new plans are coming within a week.

Wow, that is fast!  Yeah, if people are having problems understanding the plans, then going more simple is probably a good idea.

Thank god something is finally being done. And training will definitely help. I am liking Marcelo already.

You also have to figure Masa and Marcelo are thinking there is an opportunity to get out there with the new plans ahead of the iphone 6 launch. With a lot of iphone 5 users (heck I still know plenty of people on the 4s) coming off contracts and looking to upgrade, there is a window here.

Just speculation and wishes...(note: I'm on an 8 line framily plan now with several family members, we managed to merge them into one framily, got the right CSR apparently), but I really hope they add some tethering into the plans, as well as simplified ways to make the per line easier to understand. The framily was a good idea had it been done before market saturation, but now it's just hard to understand the purpose.

Sprint used to have custom vans for employees. I wish i had got some before they discontinued them.

Tesla sprint custom cars partnership confirmed.

I completely agree with all of the comments from the members here, that is a really good article! The writer does make a lot of good points!

I agree!

 

I hope that new plans are rolled out! The Framily Plans does not work for me.

 

Two problems I personally have with the Framily Plans is the confusion, and the fact that with only two lines of service (one Android phone...mine, and one feature phone...my father's), the Framily Plans do not save me any money and would actually be more expensive for me. Also, I don't have a lot of family, and I refuse to recruit completely strangers.

While I do agree Framily is WAY too complicated, it does save you lots of money if you spend the time recruiting.

 

For instance, my Framily is 8/10 currently and it really wasn't that difficult to achieve. You just have to work with Sprint to merge existing customers, if you're wanting to go that route.

 

I'm very happy with Framily, now that we've gone through the work of getting everything setup.

 

Again, I do agree. Sprint just needs to make it easier overall. It is a great plan, just frustratingly over-complicated.

Personally...I don't think it's complicated per se....I just think it's complicated for the average joe to comprehend....If you read how it works, it's not that hard to grasp, but the general population (Outside of S4GRU) Make it complicated...

When the Sprint reps don't even know all of the ins-and-outs of how Framily works and you have to call back over and over again to get things done correctly, it is over-complicated - by any standard.

This is all looking very good! I really hope he starts using his twitter account too.

 

Sounds like he has some great plans, and they are acting on them ASAP.

    • Ah, yeah that would do it. This one targeted the three lines that didn't have any payments left on them. Email came on Thursday. I went to the store to do one of the upgrades and they did say it was a company wide promo. If there are any other lines needing upgrades and are paid off, might be eligible. 
    • Actually going back to my original post it was definitely a different promo.  The text came in Tuesday after Easter about it and it does explicitly say 50% off with eligible trade in.  And it was probably just targeted at my specific line too, my wife didn't get that text.
    • Possibly....or maybe they just really only gave half credit for the G8X (keep in mind this is the base phone I have and not the dual screen btw, though the regular G8 didn't have a dual option anyway).   Without it being officially on the list of acceptable phones for the 'free' deal though its hard to complain I guess.
    • I traded in my Dad's LG G8 and got the S21 for free + tax. Upgraded it to the 256MB version for $2 a month. Maybe a different promo? I should add, the phones were completely paid off, so that might have impacted the promo.
    • Whatever calculation was done, it was done automatically by the system.  I checked 2 other lines and no change there (one was a G7).  So I suppose they just didn't publicize the G8X, though if they accept a regular G8 it would stand to reason they'd take a G8X too.  I doubt they'd credit anymore for a regular G8 than I got though.  I'd be curious to see what the system offers someone with a V60 5G.    I kind of wish I'd have been able to get at least an S21+ 256GB for half off, its a little hard adjusting to the size downgrade to 6.2, but now that I finally have a Supcase for the S21 I'm noticing the actual size differential isn't as large as it seems with no case at all - the thing felt tiny by comparison.
