  1. thanks RedSpark... I'll try again. It's about getting the right person on the other end that kinda-sorta knows what they are doing. I'm afraid to have them change my plan because then it will kick off have to reapply for my corporate discount and all that rig-a-mo-roll... Oh, by the way, thought you'd all enjoy this... one of the overseas customer service agents said I wasn't eligible for a devise upgrade / contract termination because of my new device I had recently purchased?? (Magic Box). After explaining to them what it was and much more confusion they rescinded what they earlier said.. What ever. As long as my bill is correct at the end of the month.
  2. Hopefully you'll get a rep that knows what they are doing. I had no luck dealing with Customer care after 2 tries. I have to work up the stamina of trying again. The on line chat person said I was good to go, but couldn't get the Hulu working. ( I had also called Hulu for help and they said it was strictly in Sprint's court) Online finally told me to call 888-477-4727 Sprints normal help #. Called twice... one was overseas and could not speak clear enough English to understand and kept putting me on hold to "Check with someone". A few hours later tried again. Told that only the new Freedom Unlimited plan was the only one that is truly free for customers. If you have a different plan, you will get the first 30 days free then a charge will begin automatically. I asked for escalation to a supervisor... was put on hold for 10 mins then the agent came back on to say nobody was available and to call back. This was my experience over the weekend. I was nice the entire time as being mean or forceful gets you no where.
  3. I had issues logging into Hulu... after adding it easily on Sprint.com. It showed $0.00 when I added it. Just thought I let many of you know, the Sprint rep I talked to said the "Truly" free Hulu was only available to Freedom unlimited plan customers. The existing plan customers get the first month free, then it's $6.99 /month automatically added to your bill. I have a 450 minute talk, unlimited data and text. I opted to not add Hulu as I don' t need another $7 bucks on my bill and do not want to be on another contract if I change my plan. Appreciate if someone could verify?

    Both Sprint and T-Mobile officially announced they are ending merger talks. What? Really... Yes!

    Deutsche Telekom Said to visit SoftBank, Son, this weekend in Japan to discuss Merger. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/03/sprint-t-mobile-talks-continue-deutsche-telekom-to-visit-softbank-this-weekend-sources-say.html

    I'm suspecting it's not over yet either. Official word needs to come from one side or the other and that hasn't happened yet. It's already Wednesday in Japan (8am)... should have heard something official now if it were really over.
  7. [Discontinued] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Still no clear news on what is going on... Merger talks are said to be still going. None of the business news orgs know any detail. From what is known, DT has said the merger talks are still on... This is all very strange and with no news coming out ?....

    Not a troll. Been a Sprint customer since 2000. 17+ years. Lots of broken promises. I don't like being told what to say (EVER!) to never say anything negative about Sprint. I do not "drink the Kool Aide" here or anywhere else. I'm conversing in an open forum. Without my corporate discount, their single plans are the same cost as everyone else, so don't come with leave if you don't like it. I like Sprint but wish they'd truthfully get there act together., but I've been saying that for 10+ years. By the way, they posted a net loss yesterday. Not a profit making company regardless of what you all say and one with huge dept. Bigger than any of the other players. Is the company healthy? No. Are they adding customers. Yes, with free plans, they are adding. Are they making money... ?? well...I and everyone else except some of you here, say no. It's all real.

    You're right. Sorry. No offense intended. Sprint is a healthy and viable company with enormous growth potential. with all the promised advances and everything we've been told, it will probably do very well.

    I don't see Coverage partnerships happening with companies. The way to do that and the way you're thinking would be to install signal repeaters in the hallways of large Hotels and large businesses, not Magic boxes. The hotels/companies won't pay for this. It's expensive. Sprint wont do it either so that's quite a dilemma. Most hotels in this country have Wi-fi. Really... no need or want for them to come to the aid of Sprint on this. The writing is on the wall. 4 place is where the company will be and stay unless something dramatic happens. Something will happen too. Son will not want to hang onto this company if the T-Mobile merger fails. He will unload at what every price he can get. I think he is/already tried that by the way... which is why we have an all stock deal of a potential merger. No cash involved. It's called cut your losses and leverage what you do have.... If this fails, I see some of the spectrum being sold in order to pay off or refinance the huge debt notes coming due in a few years and for them to try to do a weak 5G build... I just personally don't see Sprint surviving long term, let alone overtaking anyone... even with massive mimo, small cells or what have you... because the other big 3 cell providers are already doing the same thing.

    Good take from Bloomberg on the Sprint earnings report this morning and what lays ahead for Sprint. In a nutshell, merger is needed more than before...... https://www.bloomberg.com/gadfly/articles/2017-10-25/sprint-earnings-has-loss-awaits-t-mobile-deal

    Softbank leaving? I didn't get that feeling at all!

    The other thing I found in his video presentation was the clear lack of anything "Sprint". John jabbed at AT&T and Verizon but nothing on or against Sprint. Also, I don't know if you guys noticed, but the word "Duopoly" is the power word of late and is being used with more frequency! (no pun intended).... I think it's about conditioning the FCC and DOJ by hearing it.
  14. [Discontinued] Sprint Tmobile merger Disc.

    Sprint has reported to Wall street that they will do the same. Marcelo and company will tape a quarterly earning report as well to avoid questions around the merger. Strange behaviors. I have never seen this before.
