Urgent Sprint issue from a store rep...

I work at a 3rd party Sprint store (United Cellular).

An couple entered my store today and expressed their desire to terminate one of the lines on their account which was still in contract (ETF $180) and immediately add a new line with a Data 450 plan and an HTC Evo. I was happy to add a new line for them and thoroughly went over all the ramifications of terminating a line. They understood and asked me to set it up.

Since I'm not able to cancel a line in store (not sure if even a corporate location can do that) I called account services and told the rep what the customers wanted. He asked to speak to the customers. He apparently told them that it would actually be cheaper to buy the phone at retail cost (485.00) and that if they did t...

Sprint's continued turn around

In big turnaround, Sprint matches Verizon for customer satisfaction as AT&T, T-Mobile drop
Associated Press Newswires 17 May 2011 -- By PETER SVENSSON

NEW YORK (AP) - Sprint Nextel Corp., once dead last in customer satisfaction among the Big 4 national wireless carriers, now has the happiest subscribers, along with long-time leader Verizon Wireless, according to a survey released Tuesday.

The American Customer Satisfaction Index also shows tentative declines in customer satisfaction at the other two big carriers, AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile USA. That comes as AT&T has agreed to buy T-Mobile USA for $39 billion in a deal that could close next year.

The acquisition could make AT&T and T-Mobile customers even less happy. Claes Fornell...

What was Sprint thinking???

You all tell me, what in the world was sprint thinking in aquiring a company that has nothing in common with their technology?

CDMA vs. iDEN?

All it has done is force numerous Nextel customers, who didnt realize how chitty of a network they were on to do some research and switch to a superior carrier like Cingular, and as much as it pains me to say it even Verizon.

Although with all the progression cingular has been making and is looking to make, in about two years the capability of cingular's network will be unparalleled.

when they start offering download speeds of 28 Mbps and 11 Mbps UPLOADS!!!!! your local cable companies and DSL providers wont be able to compete....

Why don't you all jump off of your network and bring i...

Nexus S 4g from Asurion

Why is it only $50 to replace the NEXUS s 4g through asurion when the epic and the evo cost 100?? That does not make any sense! I had to replace mine because it was stolen and it the deductible was onl $50!!

Sprint drops strongest LTE hints yet

U.S. mobile operator says announcements to be made soon; aims to reuse 800-MHz iDEN spectrum.
Sprint has given the strongest indications to date about adopting LTE to power its high-speed mobile network.

"There is a high likelihood that LTE is in our future in one flavour or another," said Geoff Martin, who heads up the U.S. operator's M2M collaboration centre in Silicon Valley, on Monday.

"Announcements will be made soon," he declared, without giving a specific date.

Sprint has until now used WiMAX technology as the basis for its next-generation mobile network, but with LTE adoption more prevalent among the world's mobile operators the ecosystem for WiMAX is likely to be limited by comparison.

"We don't want to be

best 4g phone for a new smartphone user

Hello all, I am unsure which phone: epic, evo, or nexus s, is an appropriate phone for someone new to smartphones. I have heard the nexus s is better if you want to void your warranty and do crazy things to your phone. It has some interesting features but is it better than the Epic and still ok for a new user? Or is the Evo still a better phone?

I just need the basic email, games, social networking etc. The cameras are not so important to me and a QWERTY keyboard isn't necessary. Bottom line: it should run smoothly without crashing and provide good battery life.

Thanks for your input!

This seemed relevant to me and as I am cheering for Sprint to stick around it is certainly good news in my eyes.

Clear question

So now that Clear is selling wholesale to Sprint, does that mean soon I will have 4G on my phone, if I live in a area that is currently served by Clear, but not Sprint WIMAX?

new messeging phones

My rumor 2 has too many issues now. I am surprised they will not come out with a 2011 set of new phones. I would get an android, but do not have that kind of money. I think the rumor touch is ok, but i think there could be alot more. Verizon and at&t has way more of the high end messaging phones. Has anyone heard anything for sprint., g-rumor-touch-virgin/4864-6454_7-34093844-2.h tml?ord=creationDate+desc&tag=uoBody

Sorry to post this here

Don't know where else to post, I figured this would be the best place. Does anyone know what ever happened to CamelTowing, or DiamondPro? Looks like CamelTowing got banned or something (finally), but DiamondPro's account is still active. I'm jw, I miss some of his responses. Always good for a laugh.

Which 4G phone toggles on fastest?

From experience it seems the average time it takes Sprint's 4G phones to turn on the 4G radio and connect to 4G is about a minute.
Are any quicker, slower?

Anyone know of an official release date for the Nexus S on Sprint? All I can find is that it will be released in the late spring.

MMS delivery question

Ok my only experience with this was with the Epic 4G. I don't know what if any other handsets act this way, hence why I'm asking.

It's known that Sprint's MMS delivery comes through their network and if an Android device is connected to Wi-Fi an MMS won't come through until you turn off Wi-Fi.

What about Blackberries, do they act the same way?
I've used Blackberries on all other carriers and they all receive MMS just fine while connected to Wi-Fi.

I ask cause on top of Blackberries I've used Android devices on other carriers and they all received MMS just fine while hooked up to Wi-Fi. Which leads me to believe it's something to do with Sprint's MMS delivery system.

Echo...not so bad after all

After having played with an Echo on and off for the last two weeks I'm honostly pretty impressed. The hinge is REALLY well done, doesnt feel week in the least bit. The apps work really well across both screens. The "simul-tasking" apps actually add functionality and work as advertised. And the phone itself is quite snappy and hardly noticed any hang ups at all. Oh and its pretty much stock android which was pretty nice of Kyocera not to crap all over it.
