Re: verizon to sprint
Aug 15, 2011, 9:59 AM
in the Sprint forum

Sprint has worked well for me in most cases, although Sprint's frequencies are in a higher band width so depending on your phone and the building you could have penetration issues. Sprint is supposed to reallocate it's spectrum once Network Vision is completed and they switch to 1x Advanced so penetration issues should be negligable. Make sure you do your due diligence and check Sprint's coverage map so you can see if your getting the coverage you need.

Check the signage on the door or window. In my area, the indirect's have their company name there (sometimes it's not very distinctive). If it's in a mall, I've never noticed it.

Your in luck. If it's one thing Sprint likes is smartphones with keyboards. Epic, Evo Shift, Pixi, Curve 3g, Curve 8530, Intercept, Style, Transform, Tour, Bold, ES400S and finally the Arrive. They only have 4 that are 100% touchscreen.

IMO, there are a lot of things up in the air with Sprint right now. It's Network Vision Initiative sounds promising since it will improve coverage and give them a leg up when they finally switch to LTE, but that's still approx 2 years down the road to completion. Sprint has irritated a lot of its fan base with the new Premium Data Fee and reworking it's Premier program, But Verizon has done similar things as well. Still, ...

Here's Sprints news release on Mobile Wallet. It was announced approx 4 months ago. Don't know where they are with it yet. Hope this helps. http://newsroom.sprint.com/article_ display.cfm?article_id=1703

I think Sprint is looking at it, I just don't remember which service/tech they are going with. Perhaps someone on the forum has the info?

It is a related to CDMA. I had a BB 8330 whith Sprint a while back and if the battery got to low the phone function shuts off.

Re: Wi Max voice?
Jan 17, 2010, 2:45 PM
in the Sprint forum

Thanks for the reply Yean. What about roaming? I don't think WiMax will be as extensive nationwide that your set won't need to roam, especially if your out of the metro area and in the sticks. Any thoughts?

Wi Max voice?
Jan 17, 2010, 12:33 PM
in the Sprint forum

Hi everyone, A couple of questions regarding the future. It's my understanding that when Sprint fully transitions to WiMax they will use Voip for voice. My question is, With all of the the other major carriers going to LTE, what will we Sprint customers do when we're out of our native coverage? I don't believe we will be able to roam off LTE networks. Anyone have any insights? I'm sure the answers will be obvious 3-4 years from ...

CDMA to LTE
Nov 26, 2008, 6:58 PM
in the Sprint forum

I'm curious as what Sprint is planning for the future. It's committed to WiMax, which from what I understand is for broadband not voice. Since all the other major providers have committed to LTE for all its wireless service, will Sprint stay with CDMA for voice or are they waiting until later to jump on the bandwagon? I think sticking with CDMA will either place themselves in a nice niche, or it may turn out to be a ...

Re: Need a new Temp Phone
Jun 28, 2008, 9:32 PM
in the Sprint forum

I have a temp phone the family uses if one goes down until I can get a replacement. I got it off Ebay and confirmed the ESN was clear with the seller and with Sprint. I've used it for my son who dropped his phone and had to get it repaired. I had Sprint active the temp while at the repair center and used it until his phone was fixed. Once the was done, Sprint reactivated ...

Re: Kyocera is buying out Sanyo

Sanyo's designs are somewhat better and have better quality and reception. Our firm had Kyocera's that were provided to use via our corporate account. Uinispired looks and poor reception...Junk.

I only hope that Kyocera uses Sanyo designers. Kyocera phones look one dimensional and uninspiring.

Re: Sprint phone use on Qwest?
Feb 28, 2008, 4:28 PM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

I don't know the technical aspects, but a Qwest rep told me the phones are programmed different for Qwest use only. I do know you can't unlock a CDMA phone, that applies only to GSM (Att & T-Mo). I heard that a CDMA phone can be "Flashed" so it works on another CDMA carrier. you get voice only in most cases, and some of the features may not work. There has been talk of carriers releasing ...

Re: Change in coporate business philosophy
Feb 21, 2008, 11:51 AM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

I think no matter who they team with, Qwest would have to change phones due to software issues. If they want to stay CDMA then they have to go with Verizon. Alltel doesn't cover the geographic area, at least in Colorado. The only other big players that cover Qwest's market is ATT and T-Mo.

Change in coporate business philosophy
Feb 15, 2008, 6:27 PM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

Several articles state that Qwest is renegotiating with Sprint on how the service is resold through the telco. Qwest wants to copy the model they use for reselling Direct TV. Currently Qwest acts as a go-between for Direct TV and the customer. Direct TV handles the installation/equipment and CS. Qwest just bundles the service with your bill in which you get a bundling discount. An analyst also reports that due to the large rural area that ...

Re: Sprints billing is so confusing
Feb 1, 2008, 10:58 AM
in the Sprint forum

I know what you mean. I've been with Sprint since October. I've been happy with the service, but every time I've added or deleted a service on my account, I always have to call CS due to a overcharge/credit on my bill. This seems to me Sprint's biggest issue. On top of that, I've given up calling CS on nights/weekends because I get someone overseas who either can't understand me, I can't understand them or we ...

Re: Any reps on here?
Oct 31, 2007, 8:38 AM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

It would be interesting to see if Qwest does lower prices and get more aggressive in luring customers on the wireless side. I agree that you have to take what the reps say with a grain of salt. It's rare that you get someone to give you a realistic apprasial of what they are trying to accomplish. If you look at their marketing strategy, they emphasize bundling and push DSL, but rarely do they do anything with the ...

Re: Any reps on here?
Oct 30, 2007, 12:29 PM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

Good luck. Qwest has a wierd pricing tier with new phones that makes them non-competitive with the larger cell carriers. Qwest rarely drops the price of a phone unless it's been on the market for a long time or it's being retired. As an example, Qwest sold the Katana for 69.99 up until the Katana ll came out for the same price. Qwest is now selling the Katana's @ it's kiosk for 39.99 until the inventory was depleted. You ...

New Territory?
Sep 20, 2007, 3:12 PM
in the Alltel forum

Alltel has coverage in Southern Colo and every state surrounding except Denver and the northern part of the state. Are there any plans to expand coverage to the Metro area? This would be a big market for them.

Re: J.D. Powers Report (P.S.)
Sep 20, 2007, 12:02 PM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

Good points. I understand that Qwest's CS has improved over the years, and that may be why Qwest customers percieve that the quality is better, if they are treated well and have their expectations met.

J.D. Powers Report
Sep 11, 2007, 10:18 AM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

I saw in the 07 J.D. Powers report the Qwest came in second to Verizion in call quality, with Sprint coming in third. Qwest tied Verizion in 06. My question is: Since Qwest uses Sprints network, what do they do to enhance the quality of the coverage? Especially since Qwest beat Sprint by several points?

Can someone tell me what Sprint's roaming, off-network roaming policy/charges are? Thx.

Thx Yean for the feedback and everyone else's input. My contract expires next month, so I'll consider all the info.

CS Questions
Aug 30, 2007, 3:02 PM
in the Sprint forum

Am considering switching to Sprint after my AT&T contract expires because I have poor reception in my area. I hear the coverage and plans are great, but if you need to get in touch w/ customer service; "God help you". I've heard that CS is outsourced overseas and you experience long hold times. I've also heard that Sprint is making an effort to address these issues. Any comments from reps or users would be appreciated. Thx.

Re: I'm impressed with Qwest's new Smartphones.
Aug 20, 2007, 4:02 PM

About time! Qwest is really behind it's competitors in marketing and pricing it's phones. It's surprising to see Qwest coming out 1st with something new.

Re: Motorola phones from Qwest
Jul 30, 2007, 8:53 AM
in the Qwest Wireless forum

Qwest appears to have a conservative strategy when evaluating phones. From what I've be able to glean when talking to CS, they go for reliability over style, although most Motorola's I've seen except for the Razr appear pretty durable. Qwest is slowly getting more competitive in the wireless game, but they still have alot of catching up to do in phone offerings and marketing if they want to capture a bigger market share. I did hear ...
