Another junk phone from Sprint yet again

Why do they even BOTHER releasing these phones? They don't sell worth a damn - they do nothing but give the consumer a bad taste in their mouth - meanwhile they're going to and ALWAYS blame the carrier first, and then the manufacturer second.

I would almost say they cost the carrier more money than what they make - between shipping & their service and repair issues - I don't get why they waste their time on sub-par phones NO ONE wants.

There about about 10 phones on the market that actually sell worth a damn right now, and they ALL have water & physical abuse cases that are FAR superior to what this phone has to offer, in addition to being MUCH better devices.
Sprint NEEDS to add low-end Spark phones to their lineup that answer to this market segment. Not everyone wants to buy the latest Samsung Galaxy just to enjoy the Spark network. This will be Sprint's first tri-band LTE budget phone. Good for them!
