Sprint to Cut 800 Customer Service Jobs Nationwide

Half of the cuts are coming out of Texas.

 

I suppose it makes sense given the additional headcount they got from Clearwire (it was previously disclosed that some consolidation would occur).

 

Regardless, it's never any fun and I hope anyone that is effected by this on S4GRU can transition to another roll at Sprint or another position quickly.

Major bummer.  :(

Sadly, with Sprint continuing to bleed subs we may have more of this blood-letting

before the NEW Sprint has a chance to strut it's stuff; when you get behind the curve in

technology it's very,very hard to keep market share; the landscape is littered with corpses:

CDC, DEC Vax,Univac,the inital Apple (prior to iPod/iPhone), SGI,Sun Micro...these are just

a few I can remember...Sprint can do what Apple did but someone with deep pockets has

to have a vision that extends beyond a year or two

Dang that sucks and I feel we will continue to hear bad news until next year.

 

Sometimes you need to breakdown to have all the pieces you need to build yourself again.

 

Things will get better for sprint in the long term. Ready for triband!!!

Did they have to make the number 800?  Couldn't they do 799 or 801?  Everytime I see this headline today I think it has something to do with the SMR band...

 

/Seriously though sucks for the employees and also sucks for the consumer -- you do not improve your customer service by eliminating a part of the front line.

Is this number on top of the layoffs from the US Cellular purchase? There were over 600 laid off in Chicago alone.

Sprint didn't buy usc employees or stores so Sprint didnt lay off this people technically.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
