Anyone else HATE SPRINT

I have been with SPRINT for 12+ years. The last year 3G has been nearly worthless. It's always slow. If you go to the SPRINT forums they have problems literally everywhere. Is there better service out there is every provider this bad? I'm trying to find a way to get out of the ETF and move to someone else. Maybe Verizon?

Re: Anyone else HATE SPRINT

Coverage around me has gone down as well. But having 2 Sero plans, $30/ month and $40/month I can't complain much.

Prepaid can't even compete with these prices, but if I was a new customer on a $79.99 + plan I would probably go with Verizon! You could buy Roam Control and force Roam, using a lot of data, they would probably kick you off with no ETF, but you may lose your phone number.

Re: Anyone else HATE SPRINT

This is exactly the situation I went through last year and was why I switched to T-mobile. That being said ,I don't hate sprint I just am deeply disappointed in them for not fixing the towers by the resolution dates they gave me.
If T-mobile has coverage in your area I recommend you give them a try, my 3G speeds are better than they've ever been with sprint as you can see in my sig and my 2G speeds when I get throttled after passing 10GB are still faster than sprint.

Re: Anyone else HATE SPRINT

I hate verizon personally cause of the high prices. I'm actually thinking about switching back to Sprint since they should have LTE in my area by years end, or going with T-mobile!

Re: Anyone else HATE SPRINT

I have tried several different companies out here. So far, Verizon is the fastest... AND most expensive.

@Tinkerbell ,have to ask what phone did you use to test T-mobile in your area? I'm having a hard time understanding how EvDO can be faster than HSPA(+), EvDO (in the case of Verizon anyway) is only faster than EDGE.

@Karl what restraint?
Supposedly as part of their network vision project they're taking down and rebuilding cell sites so that may be what's going on there at least I would hope so.

Do I hate Sprint? No, but I did divorce them. Sometimes splitting up cost. Best $ ever spent.

Re: Anyone else HATE SPRINT

Yes I'm fed up with sprint. Originally came over because of SERO. Stayed because of the EVO and the promise of 4g and the 1 year upgrades. Lost the 1 year upgrade, WiMAX sucks, service is horrible in parts of NYC . Will wait out my contract if I can't get sooner.
