Way to Go, Sprint!

I'm enjoying rhe network, prices, and extras I get every month as a subscriber. Keep up the good work.

I'm betting that later models of iPhone 7 will receive the headphone jack. Apple is undoubtedly keeping its older model around until it sees how well their latest offering fares.

I was thinking the same thing. I wish that bluetooth headphones/earbuds had a wired option. That way, you could use them the old-fashioned way when near your device and wirelessly when too far.

Before Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, we had Phonescoop. At least when fights broke out here, nobody knew who you really were.

Sprint is merely doing what the other three carriers do: match their competitor's prices and/or plans to retain customers. In fact, my current plan through Sprint (10 gigs each line for $100 for a family of four) even has the T-Mobile name attached to it on my billing.

The prize goes to all the trolls who love to naysay everything about a carrier or brand they dislike. On the other hand, those of us who use Sprint, either for work or personal, welcome this news because it means better things for us. If you dislike Sprint or some other brand, here is a novel idea: don't purchase their products or services; it's that simple.

You can, as long as you are on WiFi or LTE. Talk and surf doesn't work over 3G or 1X because both are CDMA based.

Yes, ANY phone being produced nowadays needs LTE capabilities for the reason you've described. Moreover, Android is capable of powering basic phones as well; why not use that OS rather than one with rigid limitations? Even though basic phone buyers typically don't care about features, some people will have them because an employer purchased them for business use.

AT&T's basic phone coverage is very poor in rural areas. At least with Sprint, you can roam.

Whether they need to or not, the claim has been addressed by Verizon. Their comeback is, "Well, we're consistently fast everywhere." What they don't and can't say is they are the fastest. Unlike you, Verizon tells the truth about their network rather than making opposite statements from reality.

If Sprint's network were slow, the other guys would be trouncing them on TV and in the courtroom for claiming otherwise. However, that isn't happening.

SMS Interoperability

The feature for which I have been waiting is SMS. If Facebook must require us to use a separate app for IM, at least allow us to control all of our messaging in one place. I keep hearing they will do this, but I do not see it happening.

in the Article: Houses Passes Bill that Could Cripple FCC's Net Neutrality Rules forum

While I believe that anyone or any group (like the FCC) means well, price controls ultimately are counter productive. The bottom line is that no one is ultimately required to own a business that provides goods or services, especially those that humanity could survive without having. This is why minimum wage and other artificial economic controls don't work. Once an outside player comes along and forces companies to "do the right thing," they, in turn, respond by charging higher ...

I wish that Phonescoop reposted false prophecies like the one above to discourage this sort of behavior. It's absolutely disgraceful and stupid.

The Identity of the Third Party

I'm betting that the unnamed third party is actually someone within Apple. That way, they can have their cake and eat it, too: pretend your against privacy invasion publicly while secretly helping the government.

Once again, the trolls show their true colors. I'm certain if Sprint had announced that they would not pursue any free trials, the same idiots complaining about this announcement would deride them had they chosen otherwise. How badly it must suck to be one of them...a life that is incomplete without saying nasty things about a telephone company that they don't even use.

I once had AT&T's DSL service; it was reliable but slow. It too had a 250 GB cap, but even with all three of my household members using it constantly, we never came close to hitting the ceiling. On the other hand, Sprint's new "unlimited" data caps your high speed at twenty-four GB. I alone blow through that amount in a month. That is why I could never turn off Charter.

Until mobile networks can provide truly unlimited Internet, services like Netflix are best enjoyed at home, hooked to a wired connection.

Trolldom at its Finest
Mar 15, 2016, 9:43 PM
in the Article: Sprint Claims to Reach 300Mbps Downloads with Galaxy S7 forum

If your Sprint and Phonescoop runs an article about how slow your network is compared to other wireless companies, the trolls come here and bash you for that. However, once you're faster than everyone else, those same, hypocritical idiots change the conversation to "quality versus speed." Well, if that's the case, Sprint's 3G network was recently rated better than everyone else's as well. Oh wait...3G is too slow to be considered in any serious network discussion. Here's an idea: go ...

Actually, I did not declare myself the winner; I declared you the loser. You are a loser for defending someone whom you do not know for doing something that is totally inexcusable.

Well, there you go again. You lost this argument two posts ago, yet you continue with your ill-conceived talking points. My guess is that you and Mr. Rawlford79 are the same individual. That would be the only reason to defend a person who responds with personal attacks to criticism of content he or she has shared. It must be a lonely world in which you live if disagreement with the presentation of ideas is equivalent to disrespect. I know of ...

I doubt that you would be happy or complacent if someone called you lazy and illiterate. I told him his post was too long, and I did not read it all; he attacked me personally. Do you honestly equate criticism of what someone says with personal attacks?

Re: Waste Of Money/Resources

No, it isn't perfect. He didn't use correct punctuation nor write using complete sentences, yet he has the audacity to call me lazy and illiterate. He epitomizes everything wrong with people today: he composes a humongous, dreadfully boring rant against the policies and practices of a wireless carrier that no one is forcing him to use, then he personally attacks me for daring to call him out for doing so. In the process, he makes himself look like a ...

Perhaps when you learn to write using complete sentences and use correct punctuation, then you can call others lazy and illiterate.

in the Article: Sprint Announces 'Better Choice' Plans for Shared Data forum

It's an even greater shame that people like you post things without fact checking. Sprint's network may not be on par with Verizon, but they certainly cover more people nationwide through roaming agreements than AT&T or T-Mobile. Try using either of the latter-mentioned carriers in rural areas and see how great they are. It doesn't matter how "quality" a network is if it doesn't provide blanket coverage in areas where you'll need it most.

If you have a 3G/4G tablet, it doesn't share on this plan...only smartphones and regular phones are eligible. Big bummer! :(
