Sprint just made a huge move to steal you away from AT&T and Verizon [updated]

Although Sprint has been the wireless world’s whipping boy for years, the carrier has been showing some signs of competitiveness in recent months and this week it’s announcing its boldest move yet. Per Re/code, Sprint this week will start offering a new pricing scheme “that it claims will halve the bills of customers who defect from AT&T and Verizon in the latest salvo of an increasingly bitter price war.” More →

Sprint’s stench is rubbing off on SoftBank too

It’s been more than two years since Japanese mobile powerhouse SoftBank bought Sprint and the carrier is still a complete mess that’s losing both money and postpaid subscribers each quarter with depressing regularity. Now Bloomberg reports that the sick man of American wireless isn’t just hurting itself anymore but is now hurting its parent company — or, some might say, its Framily company. More →

Despite its new CEO, Sprint continues to be an unmitigated disaster

Despite its new CEO, Sprint continues to be an unmitigated disaster

Sprint may have a new CEO, but it’s still putting out the same dismal quarterly earnings reports. In its fiscal Q2 2014 earnings released Monday, Sprint posted a net loss of $0.19 per share, or more than triple the consensus estimate of a loss of $0.06 per share. The company also missed on its revenue expectations as its quarterly revenues of $8.49 billion were less than the consensus estimate of $8.59 billion.  More →

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.

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 →
