Sprint Lays Out Smartphone Roadmap
The Future is SO BIRGHT...
Poor Nextel, still living in the ice age, no future data & voice improvement.
Have they stopped bleeding customers?
* I'm sure both the Pre and the Hero will help them quite a bit. But they STILL need to stabilize.
* I'm not hating on Sprint btw, just making an honest statement that they still need to stabilize.
So essentially BGR said that same thing I did, that the Pre and Hero should help stabilize Sprint. But I didn't go as far as using the word "gains". Gonna be a while longer still before that happens, could be quite a while. The way the economy is, flocks of people might go to these cheaper options that are available from as the article said Boost, and Metro and Cricket I think will see a lot of gains in the next 12 months.
Well, I guess one thing that has helped them to prevent going off the edge is they sold they're network right? They don't actually operate it anymore. Plus Boost is doing very, very well, as well as Virgin. It is amazing though that Sprint can introduce a plan such as Unlimited Everything, and yet even that still doesn't help them!!! Even the Pre & Hero isn't helping them, well, at least not as much as they need it to. Well, we'll see what next year brings when they start having WiMAX smartphones, see if that helps at all.
Wow 2yrs losing money without going bankrupt, that's kind of interesting that they can go that long losing money without going bankrupt.
Jay, you obviously misunderstand bankruptcy -- a situation in which an entity's debts outweigh its assets or its ability to satisfy those debts. Sprint is not even close to bankruptcy, as Sprint's licensed spectrum alone is worth tens of billions of dollars.
Additionally, the originator of this thread, cellfoneluva -- a name which suggests a young imbecile -- repeatedly brings nothing constructive to the table, rather just carries a grudge against Sprint.
I am not an inherently antagonistic person. I just want people to seek truth -- or, at least, greater insight. Such makes us all more knowledgeable.
From a media and news point of view, Sprint is indeed suffering. It always appears that their(Sprint's) accomplishments get lost in the stream of negative exposure. The media can be the most powerful figure for people in determining a direction or trend of events.
I have contended all the long that Sprint is on a very aggressive path to rebuild their respective position it once held in the industry, but a cycle of historical human trend is taking part.
I had claimed in an earlier post on another subject that People will hang out at a certain club simply because that is where everyone else hangs out. They want to be part of the "in" crowd.
The opposite reaction has the same effect. No one wants to go there because no on...
Also all the Sprint customers who are going Prepaid, they are all going over them so ,technically , in Hesse terms, he is not losing customers.
what was that bit about not allowing tethering, can someone from sprint clarify?
Sure others offer it, but I'm just saying Sprint actually came up with a name for it other than just tethering.
Personally I don't believe in paying for tethering, I'm sure you know that though, as far as I'm concerned if I'm already paying for a data plan enough is enough!!!
The notion of a connection card is great, unless you're one of the people that only needs the capability from time to time. Why pay $59.99 a month when you could pay the extra tethering fee only when you actually need the service?
Another case of people thinking they know how to increase revenue forcing custo...
