I totally agree with that! You can't take what works in Japan and just port it to America and expect it to work here.

Classic Sprint. Maybe Son has been infected by the Sprint culture instead of the other way around!

Yeah I agree. All commercials are horrible these days, I watch commercials on mute when I'm watching the nba playoffs.

I recently heard that Sprint was going to start throttling it's high data users. So they'll be going from 1mbps to .5mbps.

Yea. They are so bad, it's embarrassing. Kevin Durant launches away? I would have fired the entire marketing team on the spot if that was presented in a board room.

I'm a former Sprint user who jumped ship to Verizon and I'm thrilled with the service on Big Red. Especially outside of big cities, Sprint's network is insanely bad. Some folks have posted awesome speeds on Sprint LTE but I've never been in range of LTE on Sprint. With Verizon I'm on it almost all the time, even out here in the wilds of Northern NJ.

Well, here's the thing!

Masayoshi Son DID fire the ENTIRE marketing team when the Softbank/Sprint deal finalized!

These commercials were created AFTER that firing!

Go figure…

That's freaking hilarious! The other commercials I don't remember really at all. So they weren't bad. These are just god awful.

Over the weekend my sister got an iPhone5s when her iPhone4s died. Excellent price with her tradein-net price with Best Buy sale was $125ish after all the discounts, SHE LOVES 2 YEAR CONTRACTS.

So Im setting up her iPhone 5s yesterday and its bouncing from 3g to LTE every 2 seconds- after all was set up I ended up testing it- voice= great, immessage/text=great and data=horrible.

I begged her to jump on my Verizon plan for $40 a month- but she didnt want to buy her device full price....I cant believe Sprint in my area is stiiiillllll so bad.

I left Sprint 2 years ago after 16 years- never regretted it at all. Yesterday was a reminderr of their better network promises that dont pan out.
