Sprint is a complete joke with their 1G service lol. Yeah, unlimited data with their current data speed is silly, unless your one in a few million.

One guy (Sprint) fell off a water tower that had a Sprint cell site on the top of it. Be interesting to compare the accident rate before NV to now. The hard part is that some people are dying for a Sprint network that's still unusable in a lot of places!

guessing it's something you don't wanna answer? I want to get a 5s but not if the data issue isn't fixed, my s4 works much better.

The s4 has band 41, which is necessary for sprint spark. The iphone 5s/5c does not.

If you are referring to me I didn't respond to that question of yours because I don't know. I'm sure a Google search comparing the two would give you the info you're looking for though.

Are you sure? I think the original s4 doesn't come with that, maybe pure referring to the g2? I remember the g2? HTC max and another phone having the capability.

Thanks. I assumed since you gave a good reply the first time. Sprint iPhone 5s goes real cheap on eBay and Craigslist so I'll check into that.

At this point anyone who stays with Sprint is getting what they deserve. Why anyone would take that horrible service is beyond me. Especially when other companies like TMo are buying you out of contracts.

I keep Boost Mobile (Sprint subsidiary) because it works really well in the country rural areas I visit outside of San Antonio.

Though for the $30 I pay, it's worth it for me.

Atleast it's unlimited right? lol I pay $80 a month (AT&T with post office discount) for two lines (10 gb shared with 4 lines, combined with my parents who pay the other half + their next charges).

I had Sprint, i'll never have Sprint again.

Do you have any experience with Boost/Sprint inside San Antonio? I posted my results a few pages back, but I'm curious to see how your experience has been. Also, what rural towns are you referring to?

I absolutely abhor Sprint/Boost inside San Antonio. It's why I have a secondary line with T-Mobile.

The small rural towns include:

Bulverde
Hondo
Castroville
Bandera
Kerville
Pleasanton
And other assorted small areas between.

Honestly I'd rather have a cap w/ reliable service as oppose to unlimited with very spotty service. Different strokes for different folks.
