I think verizon and sprint are waiting for lte varients of wp7 before releasing anymore of them. Just my two cents.

Re: Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phone 7

That's bs because there are some LTE WPs going around now and they rejected them. The iPhone doesn't yet have LTE

Re: Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phone 7

@eric12341 and I already canned him and having our laugh now, rather than later. I would have rather stayed but the lack of choice and support forced my move. My bill is exactly the same and I feel my $ is better spent. I just couldn't wait any longer.

Re: Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phone 7

@eric12341 I know why you left. I was only implying that we the consumers do not have to feel obligated to a contract and put up with unfilled promises, insufficient services or lack of phone choices. The common ground is the we put our $ where our mouth is, stood up and moved on. Neither settled and albeit only 2 customers, hit them where it hurts the most. I for one, gave them thousands of dollars since 1999 or so for what? We are not herded sheep. That's all.

Re: Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phone 7

With windows phone sales, or the lack thereof across all carriers I dont see how anyone could blame them. I said from the start WP7 wouldn't pick up much steam no matter how many phones they come out with because they still have the stigma of it being a WINDOWS Mobile phone and most people with experiences with them hated em.

They gained literally no marketshare last year so you cant be mad at a carrier for not wanting to take a risk and invest in a phone that's not gonna sell. That's just business...the same way Tmobile was the only one that really took a risk with Android. The difference is, WP7 won't blow up like Android did because of it's past OS reputation. People acted like I was trolling on here but I said this is how it was gonna go from the start.

Re: Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phone 7

@brownhornet oh really? Is this why the radar and lumia 710 are the top selling and top rated phones on T-mobile right now? Reason for lack of sales is because the carriers haven't been trained on the phones or because they just don't like Microsoft and as such they sabotage sales. T-Mobile so far is the only carrier that is advertising WP, they have posters up in their stores and not a single commercial break on telemundo or Univision go by without seeing the lumia,in fact I've seen more WP commercials on those networks than I have with android.

Re: Sprint not too enthusiastic on Windows Phone 7

I'm just waiting for Google to start making their Motorola based Android phones and start pissing off Samsung, HTC and whoever else so that those companies will ditch Android and fall back on old reliable = Microsoft!

I'm not going to Android under any circumstances on a phone. Really excited about what we have now and what is planned for WP8. How could one go wrong?

--
Back on topic.... These carriers' employees just push whatever makes the most money for them. I recently heard about Microsoft pushing incentives to the sales reps and if that happens I think we'll start to see a swing for the better saleswise.
I have people all of the time talking with me about their crappy Android but not so much on the iPhone. The type of phone someone uses should be sold to them based on how they're going to use the device and not just because of the trend etc. - That's where the sales people fall down.

Looking for Nokia to wow everyone with that 900 next month!
