SPRINT OFFERS COLLEGIATE FONCARD TO STUDENTS

 KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE: FON) today introduced the Collegiate FONCARD, a calling card designed for college students that gives them Moonlight Madness domestic calling rates of just 9 cents per minute between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., every day of the week.
 For example, on a 10-minute call from Chicago to Los Angeles between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., students save 35 percent with the Moonlight Madness rate when compared with AT&T's basic calling card rate. In addition to the Moonlight Madness rate, normal phone card surcharges apply to all calls made with the Collegiate FONCARD.
 Students with a Collegiate FONCARD automatically earn Sprint Priority Collegiate Rewards for every $100 in long distance calls. Sprint will give students rewards, absolutely free, just for using the Collegiate FONCARD.
 The Collegiate FONCARD also offers Sprint Priority Party Call, a conference call capability that allows college students to call two friends, in two different places, and talk to them both at once. When the Sprint Priority Party Call is made during Moonlight Madness hours, students get the 9 cents per minute rate on both calls.
 "This is the first time college students have been offered a special calling card that includes late night discounts to fit their lifestyle," said Dave Schmieg, president of Sprint's Consumer Services Group. "Most college students are very careful about how they spend their money, but our low Moonlight Madness rate makes balancing their budget easier. Sprint has made it convenient and affordable for students to keep in touch without breaking the bank."
 College students may call Sprint at 800-795-5971 to sign up for the Collegiate FONCARD. The first Sprint Priority Collegiate Reward is on Sprint as soon as students make the first call. New Sprint customers who sign up also receive a complimentary Sprint Priority Party Call, good for up to 10 minutes of three-way party calling.
