The Wall Street Journal is reporting that SK Telecom and Sprint are in talks, but the discussion is a joint venture, and not a merger. The talks include ideas about new handsets and other shared services and technology. If SK Telecom were to make any sort of investment in Sprint, it would be minor, and not an outright acquisition.

NEW PHONES!!!

if Sprint gets some phones like what HELIO had (Im talking to you Pantech Hero) I would switch in a heart beat!!

[before people get all critical it would be nice if the Hero had Bluetooth]
They still have to fix coverage. I've had dropped calls.

Plus the introduction of R-UIM cards would be nice.

Korean Phones!

How about Sprint debuting the Anycall line for the US market.

hey, one can dream right. Those Korean handsets are so far ahead of anything even remotely available in the US market.

"Not a merger"

Uh huh. Sure. This is how it starts...
and it should be a merger (or even better, acquisition)

Nothing is too late guys!

Remember sprint is still number three with tons of spectrum. Sprint isnt gonna die.

besides att and verizon are so big now and so expensive that eventually people will give sprint a try and hopefully their customer service will improve.

and if peopel can hold out, can you image what sprint could do in 3 years when they can develop a cdma wimax iphone. they would blow att out of the water and sprint doesnt charge more based on internet speed like att.

att is horrible company.

Sounds great, but is it too little too late?

I think it is safe to say that their reputation is forever tarnished. I do not think creating the next iPhone (ugh it pained me to say that) will bring the masses back over to Sprint.

No, but it...

You'd be surprised how companies can turn their image around to attract customers. Apple is a great example of a company that did horribly in the 90's because of how popular Microsoft was. I'm surprised the company even survived. Now, it's cool to own...
