I don't see anything in these articles that seems to pressure Unlimited.  Sprint just recently reiterated the importance of Unlimited as a differentiator in the future.  I'm not concerned based on this.

and it looks like they will be adding more software to their android phones to interface with this system.  hopefully it comes off easy. ;)  hope it isnt similar to carrierIQ.

Yeah, it will be interesting to see how people react to this software, as compared to the reaction to CarrierIQ and to all the other installed-by-default-and-not-removeable software that Sprint already installs on devices.  I have not problem with any of this software, but it will be interesting to see how others react.

Well, if you are one of those who want the continuation of "unlimited" data and subsidized devices, operator installed network management and device diagnostic software is what you get -- because the operator is then tasked with juggling "unlimited" data and ensuring that your device functions properly on its native network.  The operator cannot, for example, just tell a sub that he is on his own, like AT&T does with Robert and his Nexus 5 on a tiered data plan.

 

So, pick your poison carefully.

Sprint shouldn't use Unlimited as a brand. Period.

 

AJ already beat me to a lot of what needed to be said, but let's remember Sprint optimizing networks is still far better than the data monetization schemes of the Big Two.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
