  1. Well if anyone from Sprint Corporate does really read this forum, like I suspect, (so they can understand what is actually going on) the video may get pulled.
  2. Wastegate, Thanks for the update, I just purchased 2
  3. The HTC website list the upgrade price as being only $199.99 for Sprint. I may try and call them to double check as I cannot get their website to connect to my Sprint account. BestBuy Page is up and also showing a Sprint upgrade price of $199.99 but says coming soon on the order button. Has both the Gunmetal Grey and Amber Gold (BestBuy Exclusive) colors listed. Shouldn't be much longer I'd think.
  4. Not only are they charging $50.00 more to upgrade compared to new lines, but only having the one color isn't good either. I didn't order the two I had planned on due to these factors. Will wait now and re-evaluate my options. :angry:Verizon not only got the in-store exclusive, they are selling the phone for $199.99 for new lines of service and BUY ONE GET ONE FREE plus a $100.00 bill credit. Bet that will attract a few customers to take advantage of the offer.
  5. HTCSOURCE website is claiming that Verizon will get a 2 week exclusive launch according to story picked up by PhoneArena. I hope this isn't true and have some doubt with AT&T giving away one for five days previous to tomorrow's announcement. Sorry, I can not post links still.
  6. You should of read the post above you from 12 hours earlier.
  7. "And take a peek here for the ENTIRE presentation." That one hour video was well worth the time to watch it. It explains the plan in detail and how he can get the USA there.
  8. Posted on Android Central. Son says he will start a Masssive Price War if T-Mobile purchase is approved. http://www.androidcentral.com/sprint-chairman-claims-price-war-will-start-if-t-mobile-buyout-allowed-go-through

    I also got the final update today but hesitant to load it. I may wait and see if there is a public release in the next few days / week.
  10. Is this a close out sale before a name change,
  11. For some unknown reason I am not being able to quote any messages but this is in reference (quote) to the previous post. The Truth Hurts sometimes but if it gets results then it is a good thing.
  12. Everyone would not have to be Premier today if the qualifications were changed so you have to be an account in good standing with 10 or whatever number of years.
  13. I would like some advice and opinions from the S4GRU members. I have 2 lines available for an upgrade and 3 more available on 03/01/2014. With the possibility of subsidized upgrades going away most likely would you upgrade the 2 phones to Nexus 5 now through Sprint for the 16GB models or would I be better off getting the 32GB from the play store and possibly loose all upgrades when they disappear from Sprint? Is there that big of an advantage or need for the extra 16GB to cover the extra cost of $300.00 per phone? in advance. Dennis
  14. I leave Sunday for a week in Disney and will check what I can with my EVO LTE so it wont be as good as a Triband device. Just hoping to have coverage at the parks and surrounding area.
  15. Okay I am trying to crunch the numbers as to whether this makes sense to switch from my current EPRP data plan. Am I understanding this correctly? With the effective date being January 10, I have 5 lines now and 2 are upgrade eligible. If I upgrade them before the Jan 10 then convert all 5 to Framily, Sprint will wave the $15.00 per month, per line for the 2 lines I just upgraded and got new phones for the subsidized price of $199.00 each or so?
  16. Stake in Company to grow to 70 percent over the next five years. Japanese carrier SoftBank is eyeing an investment in U.S. phone distributor Brightstar. The deal will see SoftBank take a 57 percent stake in the company for $1.26 billion in cash, and has already been approved by SoftBank's board. Brightstar is a name you may not have heard of before, but is one of the biggest phone distributors (acting between manufacturers and retailers) with a presence in over 50 countries worldwide. The deal will make Brightstar the exclusive distributor of handsets to some SoftBank affiliates, presu
  17. I am also wondering why the Lima area seems to be ignored. I am in Van Wert and it seems this area is the Big Hole they forgot about.
  18. Approval sets dates for when their HSPA and LTE networks must be completed in the Alltel areas. Current Alltel customers will also be given free phones equal to their current device with no contract extension. The sale includes spectrum licenses on the 700, 850, and 1900Mhz and over 600,000 customers. AT&T also agreed to operate CDMA voice and data roaming service on the Alltel network until at least June 2015. How will this effect Sprint customers if at all? I know I roam sometimes on the Alltel network here. http://www.androidcentral.com/att-purchase-alltel-approved-fcc
  19. Robert, Congratulations on the New Position (a well deserved Promotion, I'm sure). The move will be the worst part of a very bright future for you and your family. All of us on this site will be forever grateful to you for what you have built here. The staff you have assembled is more than capable of stepping up to the plate to retain the quality during your move. I am sure that like myself many others were thinking of leaving Sprint (after 12 years) until we found this site, not to mention all of the new subscribers that have signed up after getting the truth about the future of
  20. Thanks David. I had to change it from a .png to .jpg file and put it in the Public Folder. I edited my original post. Dennis
  21. I connected to 1x800 and eHRPD this morning in Van Wert Ohio for the first time. BSL: 6500-6898 Convoy Rd, Convoy This tower is over 7 miles from where I work inside a Brick Building that I normally roam on All Tell or Verizon.
  22. Connected to 1X800 for the first time this morning from my office. I normally roam on Verizon or Alltell unless I am outside the building. I am happy to finally see some work getting done in my area of Ohio.
  23. Robert, First off, Thank you for this website but more Important Have a Very Safe and Fun Vacation. You have earned it 100 times over I'm sure.
  24. Sprint just lost 5 port in phones from AT&T. I was recommending my sister-in-law and her family switch to Sprint from AT&T for better pricing and service. They agreed and just waiting for them to be out of contract this month. I was planning on using the EPRP that is the same My Family is on. Yesterday, I logged on and showed them the plan and even went through everything up to the point of checking out. The MRC was $204.96 plus taxes and fees which was acceptable. Today the EPRP is gone even though it is still shown and described all over that website but when you start sh
