Default Sprint Sucks!

Sprint employees fired for capturing shoplifter - Denver News - The Latest Word

Two sprint employees who work in a mall were on break. They hear an older security guard yell for help while chasing a man. They chase the suspect down and detain him. Off-duty cop sees the men detaining the suspect and helps. Suspect was charged with stealing software from an Apple Store. They are thanked by everyone at the scene and treated like heroes by other mall employees. Several days later Sprint corporate asks them to describe what happened. They do and they are fired for violating Sprint's "do not confront thieves" policy. (Nothing was stolen from Sprint and these guys were on break) They don't want to sue for wrongful termination because they say going back wouldn't be the same they would be treated different.

I don't blame them at all. It's a non-issue for me, Sprint's network sucks in my area so I don't use them, but if your considering a switch in the future, keep this in mind.

Sprint is connected to the anti-gun movement, they give money to anti-gun groups, just as AT&T does

We should send Sprint letters of disappointment

I dropped Sprint along with my Ex. Their coverage sucks, their service sucks, they suck.

I will stay with my Tracfone! I did not playing the corporate media $45.00 a month with singular back in 2000 to 2002.

The service sucked:

1. Reception areas was poor.
2. When the phone antenna was not fixable - it took 8 weeks, the later 2 weeks was demanding a new phone, since they lost the old one!
3. Charged too much even for a local call!

I like the plus-up method, more than contract!

Thanks for the heads up. I'll remember to boycott them.

Do you have a link to a donor list or something? It'd be good to see who to steer clear of.

I was just told by a family friend that they dropped Sprint because they had been with them for 6 years and couldn't get a free phone. Then When she asked to get credit towards a new phone because AT&T had the iphone for $99 the sprint person said and I Quote " Then go get that one". So she dropped her old phone right on the floor and walked out.

I got like 6 or 8 months then it is over to verizon because we can bundle cell, home, tv all on to one bill and save more money then I can get a droid phone.......
