    I currently have Everything Data for Sprint and realized I don't make too many calls, so I searched Google for a data only plan and found this Sprint plan. $29.99 for basically then same as I have now ($69.99) minus the calls - I would get a prepaid SIM for any calls I need to make here and there. I'm still under contract until 2012, but do you think Sprint would let me switch to this plan without extending my contract? I know they let you switch between all the better known plans without penalty.

    No contract extension. Not sure how you'd do it exactly though.
    If you call in an ask to be switched to it the rep may question why. Tell them it's for a relative or something.

    you only extend/renew your contract when you purchase new subsidized gear through them.

    Ok - I just wanted to make sure sprint relay wasn't a separate company, which would prohibit me from switching plans. So a switch should be within the terms of my contract.

    Yes a switch is okay in the terms of the contract, but I don't think they let you do a data only plan. If they let you do this be sure to let us know. That would be a good tid bit of knowledge.

    I was just looking through the Plans booklet. They have a "Primary Data Plan...for data users who do not need voice services." It is $49.99 with a one-year agreement.

    Therein lies my dilemma - the plan I want (see link in post #1) is not on sprint.com, but on sprintrelay.com, which appears to be a site that caters to the hearing impaired (so no talk minutes). I'm trying to get an idea if/how I can switch to the relay plan from my mainstream sprint plan.

    I would guess that since they offer the "Primary Data Plan" that they would not let you use the Sprint Relay plan. IMHO it is not right to take advantage of a program designed for disabled. Maybe they get a grant to help defray the cost of the program.

    hmm i never thought about it from a moral perspective. i'll have to do some research to see if they are subsidized by the government/any organizations. from what i can see on their website it looks like they're just a branch of sprint that caters to a certain group to make a profit, like any normal business.

    that is absolutely true - that is their prime demographic, but would that stop them from doing business with anyone else? if a hearing impaired person wanted a voice plan, would sprint not sell them one?
