Unless things have changed, you can. But it does have to be over a certain dollar amount.

I'm conflicted on the Apple Watch I want one but I'm not sure if I should get the new one or the old one.

One genuine major issue I have with the iPhone is that it doesn't connect to secure wifi that is saved it will only attempt to connect to the open network with weaker signal till you force it manually! Which means I'm on data a lot more when watching YouTube and can't change the quality settings! That is all! Otherwise love the LTE performance!

I haven't come across that problem, although in my experience, if iOS has to choose between known wifi networks (secure or not) it prioritizes them in alphabetic order.

AFAIK, iOS will definitely connect to known Wi-Fi networks before anything else. It will not try to connect to an open Wi-Fi network (that it has never connected to before) over a known secured one.

This is honestly the least excited I've been for a new phone, but it's time.

 

Was not supposed to ship for like another week, so it was a pleasant surprise to get it so soon. 7+ 256gb in black.

I have never gotten any shipping notification from sprint on any phone I have ordered from them. I have only known because of the UPS notification of shipments.

Got my 256/G 7+ jet black on 9/27. I was told if would ship on 10/7. I was nicely surprised. So far I am not disappointed at all. Very nice phone.

Congrats lol you're definitely gonna enjoy. I've noticed that this year the Plus model is definitely more popular. Almost everyone ik whose upgrading got the Plus and passed on the regular 4'7' 7.

Well no dice. Being that I used a two-year contract for the device, sprint is not allowing for BB to activate it.  Im stuck.

Go to a sprint store and have them activate it. Should be no problem.

That's honestly ridiculous. Idk how your contract is affecting the sale of the phone especially since it's a contract that sprint is still offering. I hope they find some sort of solution for you.

The explanation I got is that I preordered and used the upgrade. However, now that the phone has come in, sprint is not honoring the 2year upgrade through bestbuy so they are unable to activate it.

Wow. That is completely ridiculous. The next thing I would thing to do is call Sprint and start making complaints. That unacceptable on their part especially since the 2 Year contract is still offered as a solution on their website and manufacturers sites to buy phones. If they're not gonna honor it then they need to remove it. Did you at least get your money back?

    • Sprint can't afford to go private, they can't afford to buy back shares from stockholders, going private won't happen.  Either the merger will pass (60/40 chance at this point), if not Son will find a buyer for Sprint and take a loss (hello WeWork) and as a trader the way Sprint's shares are trading its almost as if market makers are already pricing in a merger failure.  Sprint would have to do some serious trimming off its balance sheet, sale portions of its network and subs, or even file Chapter 11.  I don't really see Sprint filing bankruptcy I've seen companies with worse earnings and survive.  Son just wants out of the U.S. wireless market and merging with T-Mobile is the fastest way to do so all while pitching this "5G for all" bs <--- I don't even have faith in T-Mobile post merger if it happens.  Sprint needs someone with deep pockets like Altice or another large cable company (and most certainly not Dish). 
    • Yes, some of you disagree with me.  That's to be expected.  Sprint sucks in some places.  But Sprint is not only great in my area, but they're actually the best.  And in most metro areas, they are perfectly usable.  But guess what?  T-mobile sucks in many places.  And I can tell you here in their home market, they're the worst carrier.  Verizon also stinks in places too.  I suppose if I lived in a crappy Sprint market, I'd go.  But I can tell you I see more and more people who leave Sprint and either come back or even if they don't, admit that the network wasn't as bad as they thought and there was a complete over dramatization in the disparity in networks.  Everybody's gotta do what's best for themselves.  And if leaving Sprint is best for you, I certainly wouldn't hold it against anyone.  I've seen many go over the years.  And I still sit here plugging away behind the keyboard.  But the one thing that won't continue is the overly negative drumbeat that's happening in this thread.  You all are starting to build off each other's negativity, causing the conversation to become one sided and pointless.  Don't want to hear ad infinitum the same droll negative grumblings.  Especially the same 'ol criticisms and Sprint can't be trusted.  Frankly, the drama is not true.  Sprint took longer, yes, but it did upgrade its network, and the performance is better.  And on the whole, it's better than its ever been.  So it cannot be said Sprint didn't do it.  They did. So let's stick to the thread discussion, which is the merger.  Not on the network performance on Lower Botswana Avenue and your thoughts on changing networks because of your block. Robert 
    • Boost founder has already said he would pay $2b for the brand back. 
    • Hi, Robert While I see your points, I respectfully disagree with some of them.  Properly managed, Sprint does have the resources to compete successfully.  But the key phrase is "properly managed", and that's where Sprint has shown critical weakness time and time again. Since Dan Hesse was screwed over in the Metro PCS debacle, and then dumped after Softbank took over, Sprint hasn't shown any signs of intelligent strategic management.  Tactically, they have tried hard to succeed, and have kept up with technology, and have tried to keep up with deployments.  But Softbank's refusal to provide capital (either directly or through 3rd parties), Claure's ham-handed cost cutting,  and Masa's tunnel-vision focus on merger have all combined to put Sprint in a desperate situation. So I agree with you that Sprint could compete in the future, but I think it is unrealistic to expect Masayoshi and Softbank to actually try to compete.  If the merger fails, I think that it is far more likely that Masa will basically dump Sprint just like he dumped Hesse, and loyal Sprint employees and the few remaining independent stockholders will be left swinging in the wind.  Sprint customers (I've been with Sprint for 20+ years) will also be hung out to dry.  I hope that I am wrong.  Actually, I hope the merger goes through, but if it doesn't, then I hope that I am wrong.  But I'm not counting on it.
