I understand your frustration, really I do but it is like beating a dead horse. Either way you will have to switch. The network has been vastly improved since you tried them last (you said it was months ago). This outage you speak of... its a new technology, its bound to happen. Look at Verizon's LTE network, they have nationwide outages all the time and it is down for days. LTE, like the new Direct Connect, is a new ...

Yes, the camera can be disabled BUT once it is done, it can not be undone. So, if you disable it, the camera on the device is dead forever. No amount of factory resets will get it back for you!

It is launching on 1900 but when iDEN is shut down, it is incorporating it into the Network Vision model, so LTE will run off 800 as well.

Jul 28, 2010, 10:12 PM
in the Sprint forum

The reason they dont want you changing your number a million times is because once you change your number, the old number goes into the system but cant be used for 90 days and keep people who need a number in that market from getting one if they are all used up. So, if you keep changing yoru numbers like that, the system will recognize where the hold up is coming from and block you from doing it! FInd ...

i really dont understand why people are in such a fuss over it. If you dont want to pay it, dont get it. People who had to pay attional data charges for an iPhone never complained. The statement has been brought up may times and posted on the site and it seems to be overlooked> The fee provides additonal bandwith to those devices so that the service (while on 3G or 4G) is at its best.

Re: Spending Limit Program Charge
Feb 13, 2010, 8:47 AM
in the Sprint forum

It isnt based off your credit score biut rather your payment history through your credit history. If you are always late and dont pay on time, thats why there is a spending limit. This is why they give you the option for auto pay to remove the charge. It isnt the end of the world! Its either you hav ea spending limit account with sprint or pay over a $1000 depsoit at VZW or ATT

Where/Why did you get it. If a phoen is replaced for any reason, it is almost always a refurbished device. I actually hae better luck with refurbs then I do with new devices, so I never complain even though I am on my 6th BB Tour because of trackball issues!
