I know someone who has Sprint and this person told me he recently got a letter in the mail a few months ago from Sprint saying that they were going to cancel his Simply Everything plan this month. This person said he already went to a local Sprint store and they told him that was not going to happen. Is the Simply Everything plan that Sprint offers really going to be phased out?

Attention Sprint Reps: Help Required

Hello to one and all. I work for a company called TelTech, who owns and runs one of the most popular and effective security programs for mobile devices called TrapCall. TrapCall allows users to unmask blocked, private, withheld, and hidden phone numbers that call their phones. We, however, have been having a long struggle with Sprint. Our service works off of Conditional Call Forwarding. Because of this process, we must manually send calls to customers' Voicemail boxes if they choose to use them. We requested this Voicemail access information from Verizon, at&t, and t-mobile, who provided it without a problem. Sprint, however, is the only carrier that either refuses to give us the needed information, or simply has no clue what it is. Because...

Premiere Question

Knowing that the Premiere program is ending, I currently am eligible for my 1-year upgrade. If I cash that in on a new phone now (before the end of the year) will I still get one more 1-year eligibility upgrade in 2012?

I was trying to make sense of it from this article: http://www.sprintfeed.com/2011/09/sprint-endi ng-premier-program/

..as the article says "can use their qualifying upgrade through 12/31/12"?

I'd like to get a new phone now, but also wouldn't want to miss out on any new LTE devices released by this time next year (iPhone 5?, Samsung S3?, WinPhone 8?, etc...)

Thanks for the help!

Just lost another sale to Radioshack...

Any Sprint reps here ever spent an hour setting up a customer's account, applying discounts and educating on phones/price plans, only to have them tell you they're going to buy the phones at Radio Shack/Best Buy/Wal-Mart?

I work at a Sprint Preferred Retailer, so I'm technically *supposed* to help them even after they buy the phone elsewhere, but the temptation to tell them to get lost is great. Especially since I rely on that commission to feed my family. >_

Apple iPhone 5 to be announced October 7th!!!

Apple is sly like a fox! I could have been duped, but Apple will accompany Dan Hesse at Sprint's Friday press conference and announce an iPhone 5. Sprint will have exclusive rights until late first or early 2nd quarter 2012.

Yesterday's Apple iPhone announcement now makes sense.

How is the service?

I live on Long Island, NY and work in NYC. I currently have Verizon service but I am considering going to the Sprint network.

I am looking for a cheaper carrier but I don't want to relive my experiences that I had with AT&T about 4 years ago.

Is Sprint reliable as a cell phone provider, or will I have alot of dropped calls. According to their coverage map I should be getting good to great coverage around my home, but AT&T's coverage map said the same thing, and I didn't even get coverage at my house.

Time for Verizon to buy Sprint?

http://money.cnn.com/2011/03/23/technology/sprint_ve ... »

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- With AT&T dealing for prized asset T-Mobile, Sprint's options may be down to two: buy everything smaller than it or get bought by Verizon.

Sprint (S, Fortune 500) will be a distant third in the U.S. wireless industry if the AT&T/T-Mobile merger goes through. The carrier would control just 16% of the market, while AT&T (T, Fortune 500) and Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500) would own more than 70% of it.


"I do have concerns that it would stifle innovation and that too much power would be in the hands of two [companies]," Sprint CEO Dan Hesse said Tuesday at a panel discussion at the CTIA Wireless Conference in O

Port in credit question

To receive the port in credit do you have to port in during activation, or can you try Sprint out and if it works port your number in later and still receive the credit?

My thoughts on sprint

Sprint's double standards have been getting a lot of undeserved attention recently. If you disagree with my claim that people are looking for answers, not ideology, then read no further. Shame on Sprint for thinking that people like you and me are obtuse! No one is more acrimonious than Sprint. I won't dwell on that except to direct your attention to the impolitic manner in which it has been trying to popularize a genre of music whose graphic lyrics explicitly urge ruthless gadflies to overthrow the government and eliminate the money system. Sprint is the type of organization that turns up its nose at people like you and me. I guess that's because we haven't the faintest notion about the things that really matter such as why it would be good...

Sprint to kill its Premier Program

Saw this on PhoneArena.com:

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Sprint-to-kill-its-Pr ... »

Sprint's "Premier" program was a poorly-designed, poorly-run program that never should have seen the light of day in the first place. It ignored a huge number of long-time, valuable, post-paid customers while giving some newbie customers Premier status. It angered more customers than it pleased.

Congratulations to Sprint for finally having the smarts & the huevos to deep-six an inherently bad program. The only unfortunate thing is that it went on for so long.
