Sprint to announce a “wireless revolution” tomorrow


If there’s one thing we love when it comes to carriers, it’s cryptic emails. There’s just nothing like getting speculation swirling ahead of an announcement and what better way than to send out a hype-mailer to get people’s gears turning. Above is an email sent out today to Sprint Premier customers, giving them a bit of a heads up that something big is coming tomorrow via newsletter. Did we say ‘big’? Big just doesn’t cut it, people — this is shaping up to be a “wireless revolution”! We’re not going to make any guesses here, but considering the email references Simply Everything, Right Plan Promise and ReadyNow, odds are good it has something to do with a new type of service or plan offering. Odds are also good that it has something to do with this “Any Mobile” site listed as coming soon that was dug up by our tipster. Anyone care to wager a guess?

Thanks, E!


Sprint to kill off Hesse commercials for better or worse

Sprint to kill off Hesse commercials for better or worse

Let’s face it, Sprint’s latest round of commercials haven’t exactly been well received. Many found Hesse’s attempt to be the “people’s CEO” laughable while a much smaller group thought it was cool that he wasn’t afraid to engage the public. How many other CEOs do people openly recognize other than titans like Steve Jobs and Steve Ballmer? Regardless, Sprint has decided enough is enough and the run is no more. We’re not quite sure what route Sprint will be taking next in terms of advertising but with its Simply Everything plans bundling so many cool features at competitive pricing, perhaps it should use the money saved elsewhere while we await the Pre. Customer service maybe? After all, Sprint’s Customer Care department is thought by many to be one of the main reasons customers are ditching Sprint.

Thanks, Roger A!
