    Has anyone ever used the Theft Deterent Device that is advertised in the Sprint Commercial? It looks like it works fairly well at least in the TV commercial. :D

    Haha, thatis a pretty good commercial. I thought it was hillarious, one of my favorites from the superbowl.

    I think that the phones on the Nextel side of the merger would be much more effective, not to mention as much of a chance of it breaking when it fell on the floor.

    Yes that commercial is pretty funny. I have a 6700 and insurance, so beware! :evillaugh

    I also like the one "only place I could get RF with my old phone" commercial. :D

    recap of ad....two guys are in the locker room talking about thier phones trying to one up each other. guy 1 and guy 2, guy 1 " I can take pictures on my phone", 2 " yeah I can take videos", guy 1 " I can watch tv, 2-"I have the new crime deterent phone, try and steal my phone", guy 1-"give me your phone", guy 2 throws his phone and hits the guy in the face.

    I also liked the fed ex commercial during the superbowl, where the caveman is getting yelled at, goes outside kicks a little dinosaur and stepped on by a big one.

    I guess that ad is either on a channel I don't get, or on a channel I don't watch. I notice a lot of Alltel & CellularOne ads on TV, but you can't buy either service here. The Alltel ads are very funny though with the Sprint guy bowling with Cingular Jack's head, and another Alltel ad has the Verizon guy asking "Can I call her for free?" referring to the TMO lady...

    I tried searching for the commercials, but had no luck. I have never seen the Alltel commercials, but would love too. I have heard many good thing about them.
