Hard To Justify..

Hard to justify giving Sprint more money, when they are not only backed by Softbank, and their billions of dollars, and lack of investment in the network, as well as lack of interest in anything about Sprint except yelling at them to make money...but really hard to justify giving Sprint anything when they so blatantly spent money buying a bad investment in RadioShack stores.

I mean, that money there could have gone toward network improvements, as well as customer service improvements, but Sprint has always been the only carrier to blow through cash like a fire in an orphanage.

Totally agree, they are in WAY over their head, fighting a price battle they CANNOT win.

...and they want their "Sprint sucks and is going out of business any day now" mantra back.

Before you waste mine and everyone else's time with the predictable "I never said Sprint was going out of business, I just said blah, blah, blah," please allow me to defeat that fallacious argument now.

If Sprint sells stakes in its company, then the only way it's a bad investment is if the company is going bankrupt or going nowhere. In spite of people like you who constantly pour on the hateraid, they've managed to do just fine. Not every company can be Verizon, Apple, or Toyota -- some merely make modest profits for those who invest in them -- nothing is wrong with that.

I'm not going to try and pad a claim in defending Sprint, but what is frustrating, is only having one Sprint store in a major city such as mine. And it is the other side of the city. What most of my VZW and ATT friends love about the two largest, is local convenience.

Since Sprint is not purchasing or keeping all Radio Shacks open, at least the perception of having more local stores available can only build on credentials for having better customer service. I hope another one or two will remain to recede frustrations.

I agree Slammer. S has less than half the store ATT and V have (even fewer than T). This will put them even or over at bargain prices. It does sound weird but if you really think about it they need the retail footprint, they don't have it, and this is a cheap way to get it. probably smart. Network, prices, and customer service don't matter much if you simply don't have enough locations to sell enough products from to be profitable.
