Sprint will try anything to get its good customers back. I've been getting email after email and gotten a few flyers in the mail...

Sprint's desperate attempt when all they had to do was treat us right in the first place

You have WAY more right to hate them than I do!

Bastards!
Yeah they screwed me over good, but truthfully they screw every customer over with there bs service. Acting like they're cheap, but they're actually really expensive for what you get lol

I guess I'm lucky, both of my business lines are on Sprint and I have never really had any issues in the Atlanta area. I have decent data speeds, never a dropped call and it's very in expensive.

Rootametrics states Sprint has improved a lot, so Sprint competes with all carriers now.

Im getting anywhere from 20-100mbs here in NYC with 2x CA. Im fine with Sprint for now and dont see a reason to switch.

$56 off my ~$200 annual Premium AAA membership.

No.

But nice try!

I wouldn't even switch to Sprint if they paid my entire annual ~$200 Premier AAA membership. Actually I wouldn't even keep them as my main cell phone provider if it was free. They are unreliable and not worth the dropped calls and slow data. That costs me time and money. And I live in a large metro area. The other Big Three work great. Just no to Sprint.

Which metro area? Just curious.

At the iPhone hacks section.
But I thought this time would be different! Nah, same. Guess they fooled me twice. :p
I hear you, its like a crazy ex girlfriend type of situation.
You kinda miss her at times and think she might change and things will get better.
But nope, within a few days she reminds you why you dumped her in the first place and you realize this time you're ending it for good :D

I won't argue location. But the places where I am at Sprint was bad. Got to the point we could not make phone calls from home. Less than 1mbps down at home on LTE. Buffering of music while driving because towers in between were 3G only.

But hey, the Olive Garden next to Desert Sky Mall gets blazing Sprint speeds. Too bad I don't frequent that restaurant much.

It's situational. Where Sprint is good, it's great.

I get the post cards and mailings and am tempted but I don't like how they lock your sim.

As in, if I took my sim out and put it in another phone to use, it'll be blocked.

So if I buy my phone free and clear, I'll still have to tell them that I'm switching phones!

I get a lot of mailings too from Sprint - I had them 16 years before I moved to Verizon

Yesterday my sister and I drove from the Bay Area to the Fresno/ Sanger area streaming her Pandora over Sprint service while it didn't stop or buffer. When we would stop for gas I would do Speedtests and her Sprint speeds were 1- 6mbps vs my upper Verizon 20- 40mpbs

Needless to say -I toss all Sprint mailers and offers immediately - the only way I become a Sprint customer again is if they buy Verizon
