Sprint iPhone 8 pre-order deals vs T-Mobile

Sprint just declared war with a free iPhone 8 deal

September 18th, 2017

Last year, all four big carriers hammered each other with iPhone 7 pre-order deals that were great for customers, but terrible for the bottom line. 2017 was supposed to be different.

You probably shouldn’t take Sprint’s iPhone 8 deal

Sprint vs Verizon unlimited plans:

Sprint is just straight-up trolling Verizon now

July 21st, 2017

In absence of actually having a good network, Sprint is relying on some top-notch PR to bother Verizon.

T-Mobile Q2 earnings analysis vs Sprint

T-Mobile can’t stop making money

July 20th, 2017

T-Mobile, the little magenta phone company that could, isn’t so little any more. On Wednesday, it posted yet another stellar set of quarterly results, blowing away analyst estimates on the financial side. But far more importantly, it showed a record-low rate of customer attrition — in other words, customers are staying loyal and staying with …

Sprint lawsuit vs Radioshack

Blame Radioshack’s death on Sprint, lawsuit claims

June 30th, 2017

When Radioshack announced earlier this year that it was entering bankrupcy for the second time, we all assumed that it was simply because Amazon had made it irrelevant. But according to a new lawsuit filed by Radioshack’s creditors, Sprint might be to blame for the ‘shack’s ultimate demise.
