Re: Sprint runs circles around t-mobile

Eh? OK, I can honestly say this, and feel free to reply with your thoughts. When it comes to data services, yes, Sprint runs more than what T-Mobile does. HOWEVER, that's about where it stops. If CDMA was so much better than GSM, why wouldn't more companies run it? Aside from here in the states, I am pretty sure that very few companies run it abroad. That's why Verizon is having to start putting sim cards in their handsets (Storm) to use internationaly. Secondly, if Sprint is so much better, why are they losing millions of customer per quarter? Last I heard, Q4 was a little under 750,000 lost customers. I know that every company will have those customers who think that the grass is greener on the other side, but 750,000 is not a few customers. When it comes to handsets, touch is not always the best. A large number of our customer base do not want a touch screen handset yet. I mean, most customers are not even looking for a full QWERTY keyboard. Most customers out there are looking for a solid, MP3 camera phone, and T-Mobile has that base well covered. Each carrier has their problems. That goes without saying. Every carrier has outages, some are larger than others. Wasn't it Verizon who had their entire BB server go down a few weeks ago? So, the argument that T-Mobile has outages and Sprint doesn't won't float.

And my final thought? What other carrier has their CEO on National TV pleading people to try his company out?
