Perhaps things would have been different if the kids had gotten better grades or at least not lost so many pairs of pants.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sprint for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

For the next 24 hours or so, all of my kids’ wishes could have come true. 

When the older kids – Oldest Daughter, Middle Daughter, and The Boy – were growing up, one common theme we heard constantly was “Why don’t you get us a cell phone?

(That was among the other common themes, themes which included “I didn’t do good on that test because my teacher hates kids” and “I don’t remember where I left my pants, why do you ask?”)

We never did get them a cell phone, though – not just because I’m supermean (or so I was told) but because a cell phone is a big, expensive thing to get a kid.  The phones cost a lot of money, the plans cost a lot of money, and we didn’t have a lot of money.

Too bad for the kids – but too good for you and others who are looking for a cell phone – that Sprint wasn’t offering back then their very limited time offer of a 4G Android powered phone, free.

That wasn’t sufficiently emphatic, so let me say again:


Android™ powered EVO 4G devices.


FREE is one of my favorite words, and for the next day or so, you can make your kids’ or your wife’s or your own holiday wishes come true by getting the newest hottest phone on the market, for free.

With 4G speed.  Now, I don’t know what the “g” stands for, but I know that the more g’s you have, the better and 4G is the most G’s you can get on the market.  So you’ll have ALL THE G’s.

AND, Sprint is waiving the activation fees for a limited time when you get one of these phones.  “Waiving the activation fee” is, of course, lawyerspeak for FREE!

A smartphone might be the ultimate present: a camera/websurfing/gaming toy that you can claim (as I do) is necessary for work but which you can then get Plants v. Zombies on so you have something to do during boring meetings.  And right now, you can get them free.  But the clock is running. Literally- go to the Sprint site and you’ll see the countdown clock telling you when this offer expires.

Probably have to sign a 2-year service agreement or something.

I always assumed the G meant gigabytes, but I might be wrong.

You sir are quite the salesman. I almost bought this new phone...almost ordered several of them for friends and family. It took every ounce of willpower for me to say "no" but I appreciate the charisma that you pour forth in these ads.

I dedicate myself henceforth to study said charisma in the attempt that some of it may rub off on me and make it so that I can control others with my thoughts alone.

You shall be the first to know should I be successful.
