Sprint wants to sentence you to ‘iPhone for Life’ with new iPhone 6 promo

Sprint has come up with a new program for smartphone buyers loyal to Apple who want to upgrade to a brand new iPhone every year, 9to5Mac reports.

Sprint T-Mobile 600MHz Auction

Don’t expect game-changing improvements from Sprint or T-Mobile for at least another two years

Don’t expect game-changing improvements from Sprint or T-Mobile for at least another two years

T-Mobile has done a lot to improve its network over the past couple of years, but even the scrappy “Un-carrier” has admitted that it would not be able to match the network quality of AT&T and Verizon unless it gets access to more low-frequency spectrum, which propagates better than high-frequency spectrum and more easily penetrates buildings. Because of this, both T-Mobile and Sprint must be disheartened to learn that the Federal Communications Commission has delayed a key spectrum auction that could have given both carriers a major shot in the arm.

Sprint CEO Claure Framily Ads

New Sprint CEO explains why he’s killing Sprint’s godawful ‘Framily’ ads

New Sprint CEO explains why he’s killing Sprint’s godawful ‘Framily’ ads

While we’re not aware of any awards for making the year’s worst ad campaign, but if they do exist then 2014’s winner would undoubtedly be Sprint’s godawful “Framily” ads that featured a family sired by a talking hamster. FierceWireless reports via Twitter that incoming Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure seemingly agrees that this year’s “Framily” ads were truly horrible by any standards because they did a lousy job of communicating exactly what Sprint was trying to offer.

Sprint International Wi-Fi Calling

Sprint is offering a great way to save money on calls when you’re overseas

Sprint is offering a great way to save money on calls when you’re overseas

Amazing but true: Sprint really does seem to be stepping up its game when it comes to offering more value for customers. Sprint on Thursday announced that it will offer free Wi-Fi calling to customers who travel overseas and who call the United States, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands. As you might have guessed, Wi-Fi calling lets you make phone calls using your local Wi-Fi network so you don’t have to use a carrier’s cellular network. This obviously eliminates the need for international roaming and thus will save you money on roaming charges as long as you’re within range of a working Wi-Fi hotspot. More →

Sprint brings down the hammer with $60 unlimited plan… but there are some catches

Sprint’s not going down without a fight. The carrier on Thursday announced a new plan for individual subscribers that would give them unlimited talk, text and data for just $60 per month, the lowest price of any unlimited data plan offered by a major wireless carrier in the United States. However, there are a couple of catches with this deal you should probably know about. More →

Sharp’s virtually bezel-free smartphone is officially coming to Sprint

As we expected, Sprint on Tuesday announced that it would be getting the new Sharp Aquos Crystal smartphone exclusively on its network in the United States. Although the Aquos Crystal is a mid-range phone in terms of internal hardware, the device is notable for its display, which comes the closest to being completely bezel-free of any phone we’ve ever seen.

Sprint now wants you to pay $5 a month for its smartphone bloatware

Sprint is ready to bring its carrier bloatware game to a whole new level, as it’s looking to convince customers to pay a monthly subscription fee for an app it will preload on its on-contract devices – the Sprint App Pass. Basically, Sprint is ready to offer subscribers unlimited access to certain apps on their Android devices for as long as they pay the subscription fee, and for as long as they remain with the carrier, Android Police has learned.

Sprint Vs. T-Mobile Network

The biggest reason Sprint’s aggressive new prices might not matter

The biggest reason Sprint’s aggressive new prices might not matter

So Sprint has finally gotten with the program by unveiling competitive new plans that double the amount of data available on family plans without raising prices a dime. If nothing else, this is certainly superior to Sprint’s previous strategy of showing us a talking hamster on TV and expecting us to give them money. However, the latest data from RootMetrics shows that there’s a still a huge obstacle to Sprint becoming relevant that has nothing to do with its pricing: Namely, the dilapidated state of its wireless network.

Sprint Family Share Pack

Sprint finally gets serious, unveils more competitive family plans

Sprint finally gets serious, unveils more competitive family plans

True to his word, new Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure on Monday unveiled some aggressive new pricing for Sprint family plans and the best part is that the word “Framily” was nowhere to be found in the official announcement. The new Sprint Family Share Pack plans — note the lack of the letter “r” in “family” — will effectively double the amount of data subscribers get for their money. So for example, the $160 per month plan that would give you 10GB of data across four lines now gives you 20GB of data. Verizon and AT&T, for comparison’s sake, still offer 10GB of data for $160 per month. More →

This new smartphone is the closest thing to being bezel-free we’ve yet seen

While handset makers keep slimming down the bezels of their devices, Sharp has designed a smartphone that comes closer than any we’ve ever seen to eliminating bezels all together. The best part is Sharp’s Aquos Crystal phone will be available to American buyers, Engadget reports, as Sprint is getting ready to launch it in the U.S. In fact, Sprint’s Tuesday New York City media event for the Aquos Crystal is aptly called “Take the edge off.” More →
