    Hey guys, I decided I want to get the iPhone, and it seems to me that Sprint has the best individual plan for me. They also said they have a student discount for me.

    Anyone have thoughts on sprint, negatives/positives?

    I hope positives... because I really am not sure how I'll be spending more than 80 bucks on an individual plan for myself

    It depends where you live. There are some areas that have data speed problems. I don't in the Seattle area, however.

    Here comes the Sprint bashing thread!! In all honesty, I don't have problems with Sprint or their coverage. My speeds on the 4S are pretty much the same as before with my Evo. I am happy! Their customer service is not the best in the world and can be a pain sometimes but they are getting better and I don't have a problem when I call in any more. Just my experience, I am sure others will have other things to say about theirs.

    Not too sure how much your student discount takes off but a quick way to save $10 and gain 50 extra minutes is by using the Open Employee Referral Program. Sprint's VP of Strategy has openly given out his email/cid (Russ.S.McGuire@Sprint.com and 383) via his own website. Not so much of a big thing like the old school $30 sero plan (I used to have). I'm not with Sprint (I just switched to ATT) but I thought it'd be helpful.

    Be sure that you want to stick with Sprint service because even if you cancel between the 2 week cancellation period, they'll still come up with some nonsense and charge you a lot (even if you only tried out Sprint service for 3 days).

    They nailed me and I only had their terrible service for 4 days. I ported my numbers to them and then ported them out. Numbers I've had for 10 years! They want to charge me for a whole month as well as activation fees. They say because I ported my number out they charge for the whole month.

    Don't believe their coverage maps. My area showed strong signal but I still had trouble with dropped calls and nonexistent data. Real easy to offer unlimited data when it's so hard to get it!

    Just make sure the area you are in has good sprint coverage

    Personally, I haven't had an issue with Sprint. I go to school near Sacramento, travel frequently to San Francisco and Seattle and it's done me good. Granted, there are some rough spots like any carrier but overall, its a good bang for your buck in my opinion. Just make sure you check out your coverage in person with the phone during your trial period(like you should with any new carrier) and you should be fine! Enjoy your new service/iPhone :D

    Switched to Sprint from AT&T. My company has a nice discount with Sprint and AT&T was dropping calls like crazy for me and my family. While the data is slower than AT&T I haven't been dropping calls so all in all it has been a good move.

    Oky, thanks guys, At&t also has a discount for students, so I might actually look into At&t now because they offer me more of a discount
