Sprint is a failing company any last ditch effort to save their worthless selfs is better than nothing...to little to late 🀣 🀣 🀣 🀣 🀣 and stop with the stupid commercials noone gets them 🀣

Sprint has one of the best networks out there. They are dominating the the wireless industry in DATA and are already building a 4G network thats more than I can say for AT&T which hasn't even got a complete 3G network yet. I have to admit that they ha...

See...I dont believe that Sprint as a company is failing..I do however, believe that Forsee is part of the reason the company is doing so bad after the merger...the merger was a great idea, just under the wrong visionary ( is that ever a word? ) I be...

Capacity issues on IDEN/ Poor Customer Service/ PTT Iden/Cdma interoperability

I have to tell ya folks, I love Nextel for it's PTT, and I love Sprint for it's crystal clear voice quality, network reliability and competitive pricing. I think that alot of the struggle that Sprint is having right now is due to the capacity issues on the IDEN network. I loved Nextel up until the dropped and blocked calls began and such. Up until 2 years ago, everyone I knew loved Nextel too. Now,unfortunately, alot of the people I knew that had Nextel, now have Verizon. Personally, I am not too impressed with ATT or Verizon. Here are a couple suggestions I would have if I worked for Sprint/Nextel.
Listed in order of importance.
1. Fix capacity issues immediately to retain Nextel customers.
2. Beef up CDMA coverage and advertise it.
3.I...

As much as I dislike the leadership/lackthereof of Forsee, Nextel was to blame for the iDEN capacity issues.

Customers always say, "everything was great until the merger." Well, hate to break it to you, but a network doesn't turn to crap overnig...

I have to say that some of the things you said were false and some were true. There were capacity issues a while back because of the consensus plan and because of the Boost growing so quickly, but those issues have already minimized.

I switched from Nextel

I switched from Nextel because the coverage is spotty, I tried Sprint but they seem to have the same swiss cheese coverage model.
I understand that the coverage may be spotty with Nextel, but Sprint is about a complete 180 from Nextel. Also, how long ago was it that you were with Nextel or Sprint? A lot has changed in only a few years with regards to coverage!

That's wonderful for you, but for others, Verizon would be a poor choice...

Let's be realistic.

Having only the facts at hand(the headline story), I can say only a few things about this story. First, I knew when SPRINT bought out NEXTEL they would have some issues (big ones). Let's be realistic though, the SPRINT company does have less than desirable customer service and the store experience is enough to send you running with the bulls! I was a NEXTEL subscriber until I lost my job,got $80.00 behind and was attempting to make payment arrangements when they told me the full balance was due and you will be disconnected in a week if you don't pay. Well, on principal I let that happen and got the reconnect fee waived, the principal balance was whittled down to $45.
Based on the former, you would think I am going to slam dunk SPRINT/NEXT...

That is not true with the consensus plan. They are not giving up their whole 800 MHz holdings just some and then with another band but yes the FCC is going to be ΓƒΒ’Γ’β€šΒ¬Γ…β€œgivingΓƒΒ’Γ’β€šΒ¬Γ‚Β Nextel the 1.9 GHz spectrum (10 MHz).

Didn't the government require Sprint to divest the landline business as a condition of the merger? That landline business became "Embarq".

Sprint Employee

I am a care rep in employee accounts and I've been with Sprint for 2 years, in that time I haven't seen anything peticular impressive come from Mr. Forsee. I say we're moving in the right direction with care, products and services so if booting the CEO will help speed up that process or boost stock prices I say let's do it! I think Sprint is a great company that just needs the right leadership πŸ˜‰
I agree with you! I think that Customer Service is headed in the right direction, but it's going to take a long time before it actually gets to the place that it needs to be. Coming from a company that is around #1 in Customer Service, to this one, ...

I think the only way to fix the customer care and dealer care problem is to revamp the whole system...... the number 1 complaint in the store i get from customers is they cant understand the rep they talked to on the phone.(get rid of overseas call ...

Well said! I've been in the retail side for 3 years now, and ever since I started service about 5 years ago, I've always thought Sprint had the most potential out of all the carriers. Its always felt to me like a company thats trying really hard to be...

...Amen.

It's about time we did something.

Maybe they'll pull Tim Donahue out of his yacht on the Panama Canal to come back...

But regardless of WHO it is...it's definitely a step in the right direction.
a donkey could do better
