Sprint indicated that many of the customers it lost were due to its shutdown of the iDEN network, which was turned off June 30.

Cool story sprint.

It may be spin to a point but certainly something isn't right, Sprint has been consistently gaining, and not losing customers, for the last 2-3 years.....there has to be some reason why those numbers would suddenly reverse

Have you seen the network lately? It's atrocious.


As to iDEN, they were thrown some of the best offers that Sprint has ever offered. 99 cent devices that normal customers pay $150+ for - as well as PLENTY of notice of iDEN shutting down and Sprint Direct Connect being the lateral move.


So for Sprint to lose 2 million customers the moment they flipped the switch is HIGHLY unlikely. Customers were given a 1+ year and insane offers to get off of iDEN - no way did 2 million people just willfully become ignorant and decide to wait until the last moment.


Sprint lost the customers because their network is unfortunately garbage.

I'm well aware of Sprint's problems....but you don't suddenly do a 180, from consistently adding 500,000 new subscribers per fiscal quarter to losing 2 million the next without some reason....
