SPRINT WILL OFFER FREE CALLS AT KOREAN FESTIVAL

 SPRINT WILL OFFER FREE CALLS AT KOREAN FESTIVAL
 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE: FON) will


offer free domestic and international phone calls to people attending the "19th Annual Korean Festival of L.A." to be held today, Sept. 17, through Sunday, Sept. 20, at the Ardmore Recreation Center on Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles.
 Sprint will offer attendees a free three-minute phone call within the United States, to Korea or to one of hundreds of other countries around the world. Sprint is a major sponsor of the festival and the sole sponsor of a magic show for children and their parents at the festival on Saturday, Sept. 19, at 10 a.m.
 "Sprint understands that communication is a vital part of every culture, especially when it involves international ties with relatives, friends and business associates who share the same culture," said Dave Schmieg, president of Sprint's Consumer Services Group.
 Sprint offers a special combination of two calling plans, Sprint WORLD and The Most, Sprint's leading residential calling plan, to those calling Korea and 49 other countries. For $3 a month, customers can call Korea for just 77 cents a minute during plan hours and receive a 20 percent discount on calls to the person with whom they talk the most. When the most frequently called number is in Korea, customers pay only 62 cents a minute to call that number.
 "Our goal is to provide quality long distance telephone service to members of the Korean community and all our customers through our highly developed domestic and international facilities," said Gary Forsee, president of Sprint's Business Services Group.
 Sprint offers international direct dial service to 220 countries and locations around the world.
 Sprint announced several new ventures, services and products for Korean customers in the last year.
 -- Sprint Clarity. Sprint Clarity is a flexible platform of services to help Korean and other business customers who spend between $100 and $75,000 per month in long distance. Sprint Clarity offers a fully integrated communications solution of customer-defined invoicing and reporting, standard and enhanced call management tools and multiple access options to small to mid-size businesses. It also combines all of a customer's switched and dedicated outbound, 800, card, cellular and international usage from all customer locations and applies this combined usage for greater volume discounts.
 -- Sprint Korea Inc. Sprint formed a Seoul-based subsidiary that provides local service and support to data communications users in Korea.
 -- Phone Fraud Protection Brochure. This free brochure, titled "Phone Fraud: We All Pay," is one in a series of brochures cosponsored by Sprint that addresses the most common problems that immigrants from Korea and other countries face when they use the U.S. phone system. The brochure will be available from local community service agencies.
 -- U.S. VisaPhone Service. Visa cardholders from three of Korea's largest banks, the Korea Exchange Bank Credit Service Co., Ltd., BC Card Co., Ltd. and Hana Bank, can use their Visa cards to charge long distance calls made while traveling in the United States to virtually anywhere in the world through VisaPhone service provided by Sprint.
 -- Packet-Switched Data Networks. Sprint provides packet- switched data networks to Korea Telecom (KT) and PosDATA, a data communications and information services subsidiary of the Pohang Iron and Steel Company Ltd. (POSCO).
