Plan question

I am currently on an Everything Data Plus Plan, and wondering if there is a SERO version of the Unlimited for Life Plan that I could switch to. Thank you for your help!

has sprint totally phased out samsung galaxy s2?

just wondering because I have one that is not working right and sprint said they would order a new phone since they could not fix my current phone. However, I don't see the s2 on the website and they had none at the store. I am hoping they will give me a new s2 or an upgrade. Does any body know if they have anymore s2's?

Sprint Breaks GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® Record

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), September 04, 2013 - Sprint (NYSE: S) has long been the industry leader in cell phone recycling. Now the wireless carrier has a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® achievement to prove it.

This week GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS recognized Sprint for shattering the record for the number of cellular phones recycled in one week: 103,582 cellular phones, more than double the previous record.

“We are committed to keeping old cell phones out of landfills and are so pleased that our customers supported us during this record-setting week, as they regularly do throughout the year,” said Jaime Jones, senior vice president of consumer sales at Sprint.

Sprint = provider going no where

Well if you like buying 4g phones for years and not having 4g (except a few big select cities, LOL and somewhere in Nebraska (Why??) Go ahead and buy that new 4g phone and be prepared to be laughed at by many with your paultry 3g and maybe some wifii if you like paying for home internet and using wifii to make up for your sprint crap service. It truly is sad when my friends stay with them and I am next to them with 4g Lte in the rurals of a small town in Illinois and they feel good about unlimited 3g????? Don't be a poor sprint goat, friends shouldn't let friends stay with sprint. Ohh and if sprint tells ya that they are working on towers near you, and on phone scoop some news about sprint "says" they will have network all 4g by end of 13'??...

Boise ID needing to switch from VZW

So... I'm not thrilled about it but I believe I am going to have to leave VZW after 8 years.

Like a lot of people I find myself in a situation where I need a new phone but do not want to give up my unlimited data or pay full retail. Anyway, I have heard pretty good things about Sprint in this area and was hoping I could get some feedback.

Is the data truly unlimited or is it throttled? Any other unadvertised restrictions?

Realistically what am I looking at for a monthly cost? SMS and data are what I primarily use the device for I use almost no voice minutes.

HTC One vs. Galaxy S4 -- Please Advise

Hi Everyone,

I currently have an HTC EVO Design 4G. I have had it for two years and am ready to upgrade. I am considering the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. They are the same price.

I use my phone for texts, email, web (mainly checking the news and Google searches), photos, calls, and calendar (pretty much in that order). I occasionally watch videos on Youtube.

I loved my current phone because it was a fairly easy transition for me to a smartphone. Not too big, not too bulky, and easy to learn.

I would really like opinions on which phone would be the best for me given what I use it for. Thanks in advance!!!

Jeff

Direct Talk battery life

We've been putting our old Nextel phones to good use around the homestead via Direct Talk. It seems to me that the phones use more battery in Direct Talk mode than they did in iDEN network mode. Anyone else using Direct Talk notice less battery life compared to when they were still running on the IDEN network?

How can Sprint provide better service in Little Rock, AR than St. Louis, MO

I live in suburban St. Louis, MO. I recently have been to Little Rock, AR on a business trip. My Sprint phone worked MUCH BETTER in Little Rock, compared to my home town of St. Louis. How can that be?!

Prip (new PTT app from NII + Motorola)

Just curious, has anyone out there tried "Prip" yet?

http://prip.me/blog/2013/07/15/the-road-to-prip/ »

I pasted the link to the Prip "introduction" page above because it gives some background on why Prip came about and who is involved (NII & Motorola). Interestingly, Prip was apparently born in Reston, VA (the former Nextel corporate HQ).

I'm looking for real-world feedback, because our Sprint Direct Connect service works so poorly where we live. The Airave Sprint gave us actually turns DC off, so we had to turn off the Airave, and Prip claims they can use any data connection with any carrier (3G, 4G or WiFi).

If Prip works as advertised, it might be a decent alternative for the many people who have had poor results with Sprint Di...

Verizon or Sprint

Hey everyone. Just a quick question. I have had Verizon for over 10 years now, and my wife is considering switching to Sprint. She switched jobs and her company phone/personal phone will be disconnected at the end of May. We are thinking of getting a shared unlimited plan with Sprint. I have a Verizon plan that has unlimited data on it, but as most VZW customers know they no longer offer unlimited data plans. If I upgrade any part of my plan I lose unlimited data. That is a huge deal to me since I average 4.0 GB per month data. To purchase that data plan per month from VZW is highway robbery!!!! So I ask is it worth switching? I am happy with Verizon, but if I ever do want to upgrade my VZW phone I have to purchase it full retail or eBay it ...

anyone else having issues with the Sprint service at Busch Stadium

I have noticed that for the last few years while watching a baseball game at Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis, I always have trouble using my Sprint cell phone: especially sending pictures and using my data 3G connection. (Currently Sprint does not offer 4GLTE in metro St. Louis, so I am stuck using 3G). Is this an issue of over-capacity and Sprint not wanting to upgrade their systems in the St. Louis area? Is this a question of time? Money that Sprint does not want to spend? To be honest, I see this a lot of times with my Sprint service if I am in a area of St. Louis that is well populated and there are many people in one general location.

NextMail re-launched as pdvConnect

As I've posted before, as a NextMail user since 2003/2004 or so, I find it a very productive tool. As part of the shutdown of Nextel, Sprint & PDV (Pacific DataVision) have re-branded the former NextMail service as "pdvConnect" (which is also available with AT&T's PTT now).

http://www.4-traders.com/SPRINT-NEXTEL-CORPORATION-1 ... »

Note that pdvConnect is not limited to PTT phones, it is just as easily & productively used with non-PTT phones by installing the pdvConnect ("NextMail") app. I've used the Android version, and it works very well.

So long Sprint :D

Paid the 350 to cancel service and couldn't be happier. Just couldn't deal with not being able to use my phone due to their painfully slow network, and waiting over a year and still not having LTE. Now I'm with T-mo and still get unlimited data that I can actually use.

Planning to leave Sprint, any advice?

Ok, this isn't one of those hate on Sprint things. I like Sprint, I really do.

Unfortunately I live in an area not covered by Sprint. On their maps it's a huge white hole. I've got by with an Airave for the past 3 years (that they made me pay for) but I just can't handle it anymore. I have 4 lines total, the other 3 live a couple of hours from me. They at least have voice service and even though it's green on Sprint's map data crawls at 0.01kbps.

In the past, every time I've talked to Sprint about this they've said they will let me out ETF free. What's the best way to ensure this is done properly. Also is there any best time relative to my billing cycle? I want to do it in the middle of this month and my cycle runs I believe ...

Get Galaxy S IV or wait for Galaxy Note III?

What would you all do? I have 2 lines ready to upgrade in July and August (1 each month basically). I am debating whether to go for the Galaxy S IV now or wait for Late Q3 to early Q4 to upgrade to the upcoming Note III? I am currently using a Motorola Photon (NOT THE Q) that I had since December 2011, which IMHO, totally sucks inspite of Moto's decision to treat customers like bastard stepkids and not give them at the minimum ICS for what was a recent phone enough for the timeframe when they were supposed to have updated them to 4.0.x atleast. And please don't anyone jump on here trying to convince me to go Photon Q. Not after this farse they pulled! Hell with Moto!
