Interesting acquisition announced today....Blackberry to acquire Good Technologies. For those of you who don't know or are familiar with Good, it's basically a BYOD platform for enterprises. (Email, intranet, etc.) Not necessarily directly Sprint related, but many people use both.
(To moderators) Please move this thread if you think it fits better in another category. Thanks.
So I noticed Sprint recently deployed B25 at the tower near(ish) my house (located in Northern Virginia). I'm picking up B25 intermittently on the top level and outside. Even without B25, I am satisfied with the quality of service in my area.
The one thing I wish Sprint could do is stay more up to date with the new BlackBerry phones. I like my Q10 but am bummed they never released the Z10 or Z30. There has been a tweet or two from Mr. Claure hinting there may be a new Sprint-BlackBerry release coming. This could be referring to the Classic or upcoming Leap, but it's anyone's guess at this point. Sprint has been pretty cautious in recent years about releasing BlackBerry phones. I'm not sure if that is going to continue now and into the future.
T-Mobile is in talks with BlackBerry about selling their phones again. Even without this, there is the ability to bring an unlocked phone to TMO because they are a GSM carrier.
So, I bought a used Z10 off of eBay last night. I'm going to purchase a prepaid plan and try the service for a month. But, I'm expecting TMO's service to be satisfactory as well.. I have a tablet that can connect to TMO's network and the service is pretty good overall.
What should I do? In your opinion, is there advantage to one carrier or the other?
I'm going to also post this on CrackBerry. Perhaps this post would be somewhat more relevant there.
Just wanted to let y'all know that the BlackBerry Classic is launching tomorrow, with events in New York, Singapore, and Frankfurt. The NY event starts at 10:00am EST. It will be streamed live at the official link below.
Yep, so I am a newbie, and have a question. My life and business depends on the Airave in many ways. I live within an 8 block radius of the NOCC for Sprint (National Operations Control Center) and have had horrible prob's in the past. With the Airave and my Blackberry Tour 3G, all has gone well over the last 3 years. Been with Sprint since '98, and have heard the downfalls of buying out contract as well as other carriers and their nightmares. So I would like to stay put. My question:
If you have experienced or know someone who has recent experience like mine above, what would be the best phone and phone setup to use without staying with BlackBerry?
Thanks, but after a lot of research, I am pretty much done with BB, I don't think there is a way in the world they are going to be able to rebound but that's just my opinion.
Updated the list tonight. Here is a summary of the changes. Justen moved up several places on the list. JohnHovah moved up 4 spots. jlbattagli moved up two places. Dkoellerwx, Turas, lb124 and Trip moved up one spot. No one bumped off the list this update. And no new members added.
There are quite a few members within striking distance to get to Honored Premier. You can send me a message to find out how close you are now.
Thanks for all your support!
On a normal shared plan you can put anyone you want on it but if you do and they fail to pay then you are responsible for the whole bill, so only a limited number of people would risk this.
But for FRAMILY you could have anyone on your plan to help reduce costs and not be responsible to pay the whole bill. You could put complete strangers on your plan and never had to worry. So many people were doing this that Sprint was losing more money then they had imagined. So they said "it was too confusing for people"
Even the sales people at the Sprint stores themselves were putting complete starngers together to help you save.
In a nutshell it worked TOO well and Sprint lost money.
But of course company execs would never be dishonest, right?
