Kudos to Sprint on the Sonim XP Strike
At last, a glimmer of hope that Sprint is taking more seriously the Nextel vanguard. Good news indeed.
Sprint's "Loyalty Rewards" for Nextel customers
I received a letter dated Nov. 19, 2012 stating that effective Jan. 1, 2013, as a Nextel iDEN customer I will be PENALIZED an ADDITIONAL $10/line/month unless I switch to Sprint CDMA service before Jan 1st.
Rather than just let the Nextel iDEN customers go right up to the June 2013 cutoff, because iDEN's performance warrants it in many areas, and rather than offering greater incentives to switch to Sprint CDMA, they are actually PENALIZING Nextel and PowerSource customers in an attempt to get them to switch before June.
I am so gratified that Sprint has chosen to honor my 10+ years of on-time, postpaid loyalty as a Nextel customer by penalizing me to the tune of ...
Looking for some opinions from the new LTE users
Aside from these two phones does anyone know of any new smart phones coming out between now and the end of the year that may be worth waiting for?
AD discussions continues below...
Sprint Dura XT
1. The new PTT has way better battery life. Two full days of use compared to just one. This was how my old i90 performed.
2. Better coverage due to roaming. I now can use my DC anywhere I use the regular phone. The V950 was confined to 3G areas and my i90 to network only coverage. It takes three seconds to connect when in a 1X area.
3. This version of Sprint DC has the familiar roger beep at the end of a transmission rather than the annoying bonk the first generation had.
4. Sprint's horrible one click menu is no mo...
Service restoration following Sandy
Can anyone explain how it is that Sprint's wireless operations fared so badly in NYC compared to the competition in the wake of tropical storm Sandy? Sprint keeps touting how great their state-of-the-art equipment is, how it is smaller and more flexible and uses so much less power than the competition's older equipment, as a result of the "Network Vision" thing, yet Sprint's wireless network did by far the worst in the NYC area, and is still the farthest behind in resto...

HEARING AID USERS- Compatibility
After receiving no help from HTC Customer No Service..trying to get them to get me an update, SPRINT stepped up to the plate after my persistence of 2 months of emails and calls and has agreed to send me a Samsung Galaxy III S.
SPRINT IS THE FINEST or was it me for staying on top of it..?
Whatever...For those folks who wear hearing aids MAKE SURE before you switch check out your AID manufacturer's website to make sure your phone is compatible.
SPRINT CANT EVEN FIX A SIMPLE VOICE ISSUE
*Have had service for almost a year with no problem
*I am disabled living in Florida with all my relatives in Virginia
*I have two close relatives who have line land phones with call block
on their phones for years
*Problem started September 20, 2012 with the message “This caller does
not accept callers who block their number, Please unblock your number
and try again”
*Called Customer service September 23, 2012 that assured me the problem
would be resolved within 72 hours with a call back. How many 72 hours is there in 10 days?
*There was death in the family and I have been unable to call when
needed, she was like a grandmother to me and she died and buried and
I’ve been unable to grieve with my family
THREE DAY Nationwide Outage for Sprint Direct Connect
I guess Sprint must be glad that Howardforums is still hijacked, or they'd be getting even more negative postings about the unreliability of Sprint Direct Connect on CDMA.
After the massive outage, I wonder what FEMA now thinks about their committment to switch from iDEN PTT to CDMA PTT...

How to prep a phone for sale
Since Sprint isnt partnering with ISIS, does that mean mobile payments arent in Sprints future?
Here is the article that lists the wireless carriers that are partnering with ISIS, Sprint isn't listed as one of the carriers.
Best all around phone??
I am havin problems with coverage,etc. and this is in Phoenix area? you think Sprint will get better soon or would Verizon be a better way to go?
Sprint EFT policy
I am 1 yr into my contact and want out, but need to wait until the amount lessens...any idea as to how much it goes down by the month? or quarter?
iDEN to CDMA conversion
I mention this for two reasons: 1. I do so as an FYI to fellow users on the forum. 2. I also want to squash any credibility that some of the clueless morons may have gained via trolling this forum.
Once the towers are all changed over, the enhanced coverage and reception will be phenomenal. 800 ESMR CDMA is about as good as it gets in terms of structure penetration and square mile coverage.
Anyone who was lucky enough to use Nextel about 10 years ago remembers that, where it worked, it was unbeatable. Now, it's going to work in a lot more places and be fully unleashed as ...
Data Usage I Never Used
Then I get my first bill with some $50 activation fee, which would have been fine, if they had told me there was going to be one. That was a surprise headache I didn't need and then the next bill came along saying I owed $72 for data usage! I don't use my phone to go online, that is what my laptop is for. So how the heck d...
