    I noticed Sprint started N&W mins starting at 7PM for free, I wonder if any other carriers will follow suit?
    does anyone know if this is this a short promotion they are running?

    Does anybody know if it applies to customers who are existing sprint users and/or SERO plan users or for only new activations since they started it?

    N&W at 9PM is old and outdated and I'm surprised that more carriers haven't done away with that yet. 7PM is much more practical, especially if you're on the West Coast. I'm glad to see this change. Plus Sprint still offers the 6PM start time for an extra charge.

    On a family plan that would be worth paying an additional $4.00 a month vs $14.00 a month for Cingular's early N&W. unless they started increasing the additional lines over $9.99, then it wouldn't be worth it.

    I hope other carriers follow suit, I am considering it now but would have to go to a lower Anytime min plan to offset the additional $14.00 a month.

    Exactly...Family plans are still at 9pm. Very deceptive and misleading advertising.

    Only the Fair & Flexible single line plans include 7 PM nights. The family and free incoming call plans still have nights that start at 9 PM.

    WWC had 8PM nights standard and Alltel has 7PM nights for $7 a line but is normally 9PM, like most everyone else. I though T-Mobile had 7PM nights you could add to your plan for an additional cost but I can't seem to find that information on their website. Perhaps it was discontinued or it was a limited-time promotion.

    I hope other carriers adopt 7PM nights. That would be more practical based on how people use their phones. Who wants to talk at 9PM? (Well, I guess, other than me, since I don't get home until about 8:10, 9 doesn't seem that late to me.)

    T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless have never offered 7 PM nights.

    I stand corrected. Don't know what I was thinking about, then. Maybe got it mixed up with Sprint.

    I would have tried for that but I really don't need it as I never go over my minutes. Even 8PM would probably do it for me.

    Well that :censored: I guess I am going to keep looking at Cingular's for the $14.00 Early N&W. I have less then 10 months on my contract, and unless they offer me something like this for free as well as free incoming SMS I will stay Blue or see what happens with Sprint or T-Mobile. A lot can happen in a years time.

    Wow Cingular really charges $14/mo for early N&W? What happened to their $7/mo for 7PM?

    I think Cingular charges per line, wheras Sprint applies it to all lines on the calling plan for one price.

    For all lines on a Cingular family plan to be covered it is $14, $7 for 2 lines.

    Sprint's version is a much better deal. I added it to my account, it's been great so far. I may just lower our plan next month because of it. :)
