Just "Upgraded" to Samsung Ace, no Homepage changing, no Pandora!?!

by inlinefourpower    Sep 5, 2009, 9:27 PM

So, I had a Q9c with Sprint and I guess I was spoiled. Just got a Samsung Ace and I'm honestly shocked at some of the things Sprint has decided I'm no longer allowed to do.

The first problem that I've discovered in my first 3 hours with the phone is that the Pandora radio I was enjoying on my Q9c is no longer possible. I honestly can't understand why with the exact same cell phone company and the exact same data plan and the exact same operating system I'm not able to run Pandora. I'm guessing this is some draconian Sprint rule? Is there any way to get around this problem? We just got data about two weeks ago and I was really looking forward to using it!

The other problem is a minor gripe, but it really shows the attitude of Sprint. I am a victim or a sucker and my convenience does not matter at all. Every time I turn on the internet via internet explorer I am forced to look at a sprint page advertising programs I can buy. I would rather have google as my homepage or something that loads faster or doesn't try to trick me into buying things. I was SHOCKED to find that there was no option to change my homepage!

This all gets a WTF from me. I guess my Q9c with a dying D key and buggy GPS is the better phone?
