Re: Prices for devices
Precisely why I refuse to use Sprint. The company is basically bankrupt yet has this obsession with restricting who should use what and where.
The probably assume that if they block BYOD, we'll just flock to their postpaid plans; which offer little to no value to me.
They can stick their network saturating and practically useless $40 unlimited where the sun does not shine.
lol. Sprint is a bit more than $40 for unlimited; lol.
I use the network but from an MVNO. Better Customer Care than with Sprint.
As i've been saying; if they were smart; they'd spin off ALL of their retail brands; merge Clear and Sprint together and just become a MVNO and be done with it. Open the network fully up and let anyone go at it that wants to and as the $$$. They're slowly opening up their MVNO partners the option to roam; but at a pretty penny which is the reason most won't unlike TING; which is why their prices are so damn high.
It may be because of the cost of the roaming agreement. Verizon only offers it because they are mandated by the federal government to do so, and I'm sure they charge the absolute maximum rate they are allowed to by law.
