Default Sprint Mobile To Mobile Scam 8703

Please Login to Remove!

I just switched to sprint from nextel (BB 7520 to 8703)

I had Mobile to Mobile on both accounts.

Nextel lets you call your own mobile number unlimited to check your voicemails, however I found out that Sprint doesn't consider your OWN mobile number a sprint number and you get charged anytime mins to check your voice mail.

Is there anyway around this??

What a scam.

sprint is also the only carrier that charges $.20 for call forwarding even to sprint numbers...

It is not free. It also isnt that big of a deal in my opinion. If it is in yours feel free to take your business to a different carrier, we all have to make our own decisions about the companies we give our business to.
