Last year around this time, we asked all of you to weigh in on your current wireless situation. We kept it simple, only asking if you were in some sort of month-to-month type of plan or if you were locked into a contract. The vote showed that most of you (59%) had ditched long-term contracts in favor of a month-to-month plan, which is something you should be proud of.
This year, we want to ask again to see how things have changed. This time, though, we’re tossing in an extra answer or at least breaking out the month-to-month option. You see, if you are in a month-to-month plan, but still have a device payment plan, you are still basically under contract, just without the nasty ETF fee typically associated with a contract. So in this poll, you can vote for a straight up contract, month-to-month without a payment plan, or month-to-month with a payment plan.
You know things may be going bad when companies will give you a free TV with the purchase of a smartphone. In a new promotion set to begin this upcoming Friday, if you purchase or a lease a qualifying Samsung Galaxy phone through Sprint, the carrier will give you a free 32″ Samsung LED TV. (more…)
Update: AT&T users of the Moto X Pure Edition are now getting Marshmallow as well, according to an update posted by Motorola’s David Schuster this morning.
Big news today from Motorola’s David Schuster on Google+, as he announced that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update should now be rolling out to owners of the Moto X Pure Edition on Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. (more…)
T-Mobile continued its holiday giving ways this morning by announcing to Sprint customers that they will receive an extra $200 per line should they make the switch to magenta. The deal kicks off tomorrow, November 26, and doesn’t seem to be limited in the number of lines you can bring over nor do there seem to be any hidden tricks. If you switch from Sprint to T-Mobile, they will credit your account with $200 per line. (more…)
Like Verizon, Sprint is also hosting a bunch of Black Friday 2015 deals. Their list of deals include everything from half off on the Samsung Galaxy S6 to free Amazon Prime subscriptions to free TVs with the purchase of an LG G4. Yes, Sprint is giving away free TVs. They also have deals on the same accessories that everyone else seems to be discounting. (more…)
After hyping an upcoming “major” announcement for this morning, Sprint went ahead and announced the “Biggest Wireless Offer in U.S. History.” The plan is a 50% slashing of all of the major US carriers’ plans, but also includes up to $650 per line to pay off early termination fees, should you leave your current carrier of choice and join Sprint. It certainly adds up to low prices, plus it comes on the heels of Sprint announcing its new LTE Plus network.
While we have already seen our readers react, there is another reaction that was guaranteed to be entertaining. We are talking about John Legere’s, of course, T-Mobile’s CEO who always likes giving it to Sprint and the rest of his competitors. However, his Sprint battles almost always seem to be the best of the bunch, since Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure is willing to fire back. (more…)
Today, Sprint announced the LTE Plus network, a combination of its advanced cellular technologies and cell site optimization. In the announcement, written by Sprint’s CTO Dr. John Saw, the carrier lays out the benefits of LTE Plus, which should have customers seeing faster service with double the network capacity and speed, stronger service with “smart antenna technology,” and more reliable service thanks to the utilization of three bands of spectrum (1.9GHz, 800MHz, and 2.5GHz).

Yesterday, we told you that Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure had a big announcement to make. This morning, he made it in the form of a 50% off deal if you bring your number to Sprint from AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile. Sprint is calling it the “Biggest Wireless Offer in U.S. History.”
I would call the deal simple, but I took a look at the mile-long terms and am not so sure anything about this could be simple, especially when you start talking about cutting prices in half from three different carriers who all offer wildly different plans at varying prices and with different amounts of data. So here is the deal, in the simplest terms I can explain it. (more…)
