Why would they offer the same thing as everyone else? No one is going to share 1GB...that's absurd. Their own branded prepaid is a better deal at $35!

I don't see how this is going to right the ship. For the same money I'd rather have Verizon or AT&T.

Sprint's plans are good, even though a recent study by the Wall Street Journal determined that on average Sprint is the second most expensive carrier, after Verizon, nevertheless, the plans are good, the reason why people don't sign up with Sprint is coverage. The only way to right the ship is invest in the network, expand coverage to places where it doesn't exist and improve coverage in places where it does exist.

Amen to that. After YEARS of Sprint's continual shortfalls WRT their networks, it boggles the mind that they have never taken to heart that the most important thing really is the breadth & quality of the network.

Sprint has made so many network mistakes of their own from which to have learned that lesson, and they have witnessed how much more successful & profitable the competition is because they put network performance & coverage as Job One, it's just unfathomable to me how Sprint still just doesn't get it.

After 11 years on ...

Where I live and work, neither is an option. Wireless service is all about where you live and use your phone the most, not who's bigger and badder. Granted, both of the top two would be more likely to cover you than not.

If it was 3gb, then I might agree with Sprint on being a decent plan.

You must live in the magic land where only Sprint and T-Mobile work.

I use T-Mobile now and I've used Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. I can tell you honestly that there was never anywhere in my vast travels that I had any problems at all with Verizon or AT&T. Sprint and T-Mobile, not so much. That said, I don't travel like I used to and T-Mobile more than meets my needs for now.

It's called working and living in places with metal roofs. Unless a specific provider provides internal coverage there, it's useless. The WiFi network where I work is locked, so T-Mobile isn't an alternative.

With regard to outdoor coverage -- when I don't have network coverage, my phone roams, but works fine -- unle...
