  1. Son clearly didn’t study the US market before buying up Sprint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Plus they’d need a whole revamp of the brand from the ground up. What truly sets Sprint apart from its peers? Is seems like they are lost in identity. I don’t think they are a value brand no more. Comparing the cost of my Sprint line and my Verizon line, the diff is $0. Sprint did cost more with that god awful account spending limit that needs to go away. I wonder why they haven’t? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I agree but sadly they had no intention on fully owning Sprint but grabbed the low hanging fruit, prep it up and sell it off. The Apple of their eye was T-Mobile from the start. Sprint is easily forgotten they’re either the #4 carrier or just not mentioned at all and it’s sad that Sprint has gotten to this point. What is needed is a CEO/Owner who is serious about righting the wrongs and making Sprint a serious competitor besides on price. I don’t want the merger to go through in some aspects but truth of it is that Sprint will struggle with the people who are running the show. We are at the point now where we are seeing Sprints true with asset wise but will never see it fully blossom under the Sprint brand due to bad choices, CEOs and past mergers(nextel, not executed well) and full network upgrades (good old network vision——what a time) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Oh I believe it. Sprint digs their own holes. It gets hard to stand behind them then they do ish like this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Geeze...Sprint is always caught in some. Some like this is self inflicted. I just don’t see how he can really clean that up too much. That’s feeding into the hands of the AGs. I wonder now what other blunders Sprint has now. I wouldn’t be shocked if more come out. Sprint ALWAYS show their hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I don’t see why they didn’t do that from the start. This merger has been nothing but a long in the tooth journey. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. In what ways could it impact the merger? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’m not shocked here. John was brought in to perform a certain task and he executed it successfully. So now Mike will be taking over and he’s more of a back room business type of guy. I think we will see The New T-Mobile more align themselves with the big two. The name of the game is now profit and not a free for all. Let’s see how the T-Mobile loyalist take to this news.

  9. I’m sure AT&T first responders network will hold up when they really need it unlike T-Mobile’s and their lack of generators at their cell cites. When will T-Mobile get to the point where they will let their network speak for itself and not the crazy antics that has been very successful for them gaining subs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. You got that right. I’m just can’t wait to see the promos that the carriers are going to have to try and suck in Sprint customers and what T-Mobiles plan will be to retain Sprint customers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Once the two networks are combined, will it honestly be competitive with the big two? Especially in areas where both Sprint and T-Mobile struggle or have no coverage? Also, in a area where Sprint is stronger and T-Mobile is weak, will the T-Mobile tower get decommissioned or will the Sprint tower still go? These are my concerns and why I don’t want the merger if I take a hit in coverage because of T-Mobile favoring their own towers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. F dude. I’d laugh if everything in his portfolio is losing him money. I’m kinda on the fence with him being apart of The New T-Mobile. He’s kinda left a bad taste in my mouth after this Sprint debacle(everyone connected to it too). I’d give my money to Verizon. However, we shall see how much say he has.

  13. Meh numbers. At this point, I’m just going to ride the wave out and enjoy my plan until the conversion happens. I guess I lucked up being in a market that has no real service issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. [emoji849] and boost is gone once the merger is complete. He’s talking like boost is the savor to the wireless industry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. As much as I don’t want to see Sprint disappear, I’m just them to rip the band aid off now. I just hope Tidal and Hulu are kept and added to future plans. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. When this merger is complete, I hope whatever money Softbank sinks into whatever company just fails. It was a real missed opportunity being that Sprint had the brightest future (starting to show now with their ease in deploying 5G). SoftBank just wasn’t the right company to take on a real challenge that was Sprint and coming up with way to improve them for the long term. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. You beat me to it. It’s great to see that but it also shows the untapped potential Sprint has always had. Next step is them maintaining that second place spot and slowly increasing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Coming from a X, I’m using the Max Pro and it’s great! The battery literally lasts me all day (7:45am - 10/11pm). It appears that my data connection is better when it comes to speed, upload and even at my desk where my phone(iPhone X) would fall to 1x or 3G, it now holds onto b25/b26. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. It has no doubt been beyond crazy. At this point, just throw the entire merger away. Get rid of the people at the top of the pole at Sprint, bring in folk willing to take chances and a CEO with a vibrant, risk taker yet has a track record for revival. Sprint has some life left (ex:current 5G status vs their competitors) it just needs the right team to further enhance it and bring it to the front. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Well I have been off Sprint for about a year now. I decided to come back to save a little money. Before I left, I had issues with the service. Coming back as of the start of this month on a trial basis, I did notice a difference in coverage more so in my apartment that was only covered in b26 and having to use a magic box to get decent speeds. Now I have b25 that gives me about 10-20mbps along with major speed increases around Columbus. Finally having VoLTE was a nice treat as well. After these experiences, I decided to port in my line to replace the number Sprint generated for me and signed up for a IB. Now is it perfect everywhere? No but my Verizon service wasn’t either but for me it’s worth the switch. Also the added perk of Hulu, Tidal and Amazon Prime saves me even more since I was paying for these already.

  21. Just got my 11 max Pro today and I must say. My speeds are good here in Columbus OH Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Nice! I hope it’s enabled in Columbus OH. It’ll be a nice treat extra treat when my iPhone Max arrives on Monday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Anyone order from Best Buy and was promised delivery on launch day and then got a delayed shipping status? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. 64gb Pro Max in Green. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. I was able to get in through Best Buy this afternoon and still have a delivery date of 9/20. The cool thing was they still offer installment billing and it was only $39 per month. Has there been a article posted on here yet concerning the RF performance for the new devices? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
