    Need Sprint Answers

    Advertisement



    I am with sprint and have the 8130 Pearl but I really want the curve 8330. I have the full $7.00 insurance package and want to know if something were to happen to my pearl then can i request to get a pearl in its place and maybe just pay the difference of their cost at the time of claim. They are both BB products so Im hoping it can be done.

    No chance of doing it that way Insurance only covers the phone that's listed on the account there are work arounds but you will need a GOOD store manager to work that out I swapped my 8830 for a pearl hated it and swapped back to my 8830 recently ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I would say try and buy the curve on here or on Ebay and then sell the pearl. Trying the insurance tricks isnt a good idea.

    Or talk to a store manager and see what they can do for you.

    How long have you had the pearl?

    Ok I was going to say less then 30 days take it back but that wont work. I would try and see if sprint will work with you.

    There is a procedure called an Advanced Exchange and any phone can be chosen as a replacement, that is all covered by your $7 tep insurance.

    cp6169 is right...i did it with my pearl and upgraded to a curve in store when the 8320 first came out...also just need to talk to the right people in store...however the longer you've been a customer the more willing they are to help you has been my experience...but try different sprint stores and see what they'll do for you...good luck
