SPRINT IS READY FOR HEAVY MOTHER'S DAY CALLING

 KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day is traditionally one of the busiest residential calling days of the year and Sprint is prepared for the high volume of calls it expects to receive.
 Sprint recommends that residential customers try to call loved ones on Mother's Day during non-peak calling times. These include calling before 9 a.m., or after 2 p.m. CDT, when it may be easier for calls to get through.
 "Mother's Day is unique in that there are heavy calling volumes to areas that generally don't receive large amounts of calls and this can overload local telephone switches," said Dave Schmieg, president of Sprint's Consumer Services Group. "Sprint is fully staffed with operators to handle these volume increases and expect calls to go through with few delays."
 In addition, Sprint will also continue its nine-year tradition of providing free calling to thousands of military personnel around the world over the Military Affiliates Radio System (MARS). The free MARS calling will begin Friday, May 7, and run through Monday, May 10.
 Sprint's residential calling plan, The Most, will save Sprint customers 20 percent on their calls to whatever number they talk to the most each month. An additional 20 percent discount is provided if that number is also a Sprint customer, giving a combined savings of 36 percent, which can be a nice Mother's Day benefit.
