Something might be happening fast. Im listening to marcelo's town hall meeting and he is talking down framily for being to complicated. He keeps mentioning new simplified plans but isnt giving details. I also just found out stores are closing early Monday for mandatory training. Id guess that new plans are coming within a week.

Wow, that is fast!  Yeah, if people are having problems understanding the plans, then going more simple is probably a good idea.

Thank god something is finally being done. And training will definitely help. I am liking Marcelo already.

You also have to figure Masa and Marcelo are thinking there is an opportunity to get out there with the new plans ahead of the iphone 6 launch. With a lot of iphone 5 users (heck I still know plenty of people on the 4s) coming off contracts and looking to upgrade, there is a window here.

Just speculation and wishes...(note: I'm on an 8 line framily plan now with several family members, we managed to merge them into one framily, got the right CSR apparently), but I really hope they add some tethering into the plans, as well as simplified ways to make the per line easier to understand. The framily was a good idea had it been done before market saturation, but now it's just hard to understand the purpose.

Sprint used to have custom vans for employees. I wish i had got some before they discontinued them.

Tesla sprint custom cars partnership confirmed.

I completely agree with all of the comments from the members here, that is a really good article! The writer does make a lot of good points!

I agree!

 

I hope that new plans are rolled out! The Framily Plans does not work for me.

 

Two problems I personally have with the Framily Plans is the confusion, and the fact that with only two lines of service (one Android phone...mine, and one feature phone...my father's), the Framily Plans do not save me any money and would actually be more expensive for me. Also, I don't have a lot of family, and I refuse to recruit completely strangers.

While I do agree Framily is WAY too complicated, it does save you lots of money if you spend the time recruiting.

 

For instance, my Framily is 8/10 currently and it really wasn't that difficult to achieve. You just have to work with Sprint to merge existing customers, if you're wanting to go that route.

 

I'm very happy with Framily, now that we've gone through the work of getting everything setup.

 

Again, I do agree. Sprint just needs to make it easier overall. It is a great plan, just frustratingly over-complicated.

Personally...I don't think it's complicated per se....I just think it's complicated for the average joe to comprehend....If you read how it works, it's not that hard to grasp, but the general population (Outside of S4GRU) Make it complicated...

When the Sprint reps don't even know all of the ins-and-outs of how Framily works and you have to call back over and over again to get things done correctly, it is over-complicated - by any standard.

This guy is about making moves and wasting no time doing so. I'm liking this guy by the day. I wonder what the meeting with apple was about concerning sprint???

This is all looking very good! I really hope he starts using his twitter account too.

 

Sounds like he has some great plans, and they are acting on them ASAP.

    • Got TNX'd yesterday. On chat to switch back now. SA n71 is cool, but speeds are pretty low (~30 Mbps) and unnecessary around here. Not seeing SA n41. And losing L-Sprint network access, other than 312-250 sites (which are few and far between here) is a downside. NR CA doesn't exist yet either. I'd rather catch L-Sprint LTE (and 1x) than L-TMo H+ (which is now down to a few Mbps). Only big benefit is theoretically T-Mobile roams on a solid carrier west of here, but I can just use a different (VZW/AT&T) SIM for that. Biggest downside though is that T-Mobile *still* haven't fixed the 1.5 Mbps streaming cap on TNX'd accounts. So I either VPN in (Cloudflare Warp+ works, but not while tethered) or I get heavily capped video throughput after an initial burst of speed. Of note, if you force SA (which *does* work in Samsung Band Selector; forcing NR 71 only gets you on SA n71) you can attempt to make calls, and they'll ring on the other end, but the call will fail after a half-second or so without ringing on your side. So VoNR definitely isn't there. Did some testing last night and the n41 site nearest me reaches about 0.6 mi on n41 (at which point I get 350-375 Mbps on 100 MHz). B41 LTE reaches a little over a mile, including indoors.
    • Went up to Middletown, NY again for the first time in a few months and every T-Mobile site with the exception of one has been upgraded to include Band 2/12/66/71 and n71. The sole site without Band/n71 at this point is a flagpole site that likely won't be upgraded for a while.  I got the chance to compare both Verizon and T-Mobile at more than just my friend's house this time around and they performed similarly. I got similar coverage on both carriers and generally slightly faster speeds on T-Mobile. This is because T-Mobile and Verizon are collocated nearly every tower there. There are only about two or three sites in the city where T-Mobile and Verizon aren't collocated. In those areas, one carrier or the other typically vastly outperforms the other in coverage and speeds. For example in Downtown Middletown I was getting speeds over 100Mbps on T-Mobile while on Verizon I was getting ~30Mbps because T-Mobile has a site near downtown (eNB 48775) that Verizon isn't on. On the other hand, in parts of East Middletown T-Mobile gets destroyed by Verizon because a large portion of it is served by Verizon eNB 74282 and T-Mobile isn't on that site. The good news is that Sprint is on that same tower with Verizon so hopefully that T-Mobile decides to keep/convert it.
    • Thanks everyone.  Later in the day, I went to an area of town where all carriers have weak service (a residential area where no one want a cell tower "in my backyard").  With my old S7, I would not even be able to get LTE, it would connect to borderline unusable 3G.  However, with my S21, I now get n71 and n71 only.  Thus, the user experience was way better there since it didn't have a choice.  Hope they fix the issue that occurs elsewhere, which seems to be quite widespread.  When I get some time (and patience), I may try to contact support. 
    • Yeah these 5G phones like to jump around a lot of makes no sense, can't even lock them to SA the phone will ignore it and jump back on NSA even with them disabled. 
    • My S20 also bounces cotinually between bands and no signal, making it useless.  However, there is a bypass:  Lock it to band 71 with the Samsung Band Selection app.
