To late. I changed carriers yesterday.

As always. Sprint was/is late to the game. I have been using an HTC "Arrive" Windows 7.5 phone on Sprint for the last two or more years. Best phone I ever had. Windows Phone 8 arrived to the market place three months ago with some high end phones. All reviews were over the top. It was time to stay up to date with the new operating system and upgrade to a better phone. After months of contacting, emailing and talking, the best I knew was that Sprint "no longer supports Windows phone" but may reconsider in 2013. I was also repeatedly told that "we have some of the best Android phones available". Certainly not a good answer for a 14 year Sprint customer with six devices on the account. I've been loyal, supportive and patient. But no more. Yesterday I moved my first phone to another carrier. Not only did I get a high end Windows 8 phone but I also received LTE. WOW WHAT A DIIFERENCE!. I also now have a strong signal at home and in my daughters college dorm. Two things I never had before. I was trying to hold out for Sprint to offer a Windows 8 phone and LTE but the straw that broke the back was when I was told to check the Sprint website for LTE roll out updates and FUTURE launch cities. The "drop down" menu for future states didn't even have my state as an option to choose. I read that as NO FUTURE PLANS. Sad, considering I'm in a metropolitan area with greater than six million people. Three of my Sprint devices were "WI-Max 4g". I purchased two of them on their launch day three years ago. To this day Sprint has never provided the "WI-Max 4g" service to my region. I wasted alot of money on a promise that never came. That history makes me think the Windows Phone 8 and LTE are also promises that may never come, and if they do it will be very little and a long way off. As I said at the beginning, TO LITTLE, TO LATE!
