Urgent Sprint issue from a store rep...
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
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.

What was Sprint thinking???
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....

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.

best 4g phone for a new smartphone user
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!
Sprint reports Q1 2011 results, adds 1.1 million subscribers
This seemed relevant to me and as I am cheering for Sprint to stick around it is certainly good news in my eyes.

Well it's about time
MMS delivery question
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
