    Thank you for contacting Sprint. I understand your query regarding the 4G coverage.The 4G coverage is available in almost all the areas. Unfortunately, we have not been to cover your area as yet. I apologize for the inconvenience. As part of our extension plans, we are in the process of upgrading and adding new areas under the 4G coverage and hope to finish it soon. As of now there is no confirmation date for 4G availability in your     area.     You can also check the coverage availability in your area by clicking the following link : www.sprint.com/coverage We value your business and appreciate the opportunity to answer your questions. Please reply to this email or visit sprint.com if we can be of assistance.

    So again no answer to the question about coverage in my area! Love words like "almost" and "soon".

    you never getting it.  I'm going to metro soon as my ETF drops, might even just sell the phone to cover the ETF and go to metro.  Metro going to have voice over LTE soon.  You don't get the latest phone but its a heck of a lot cheaper and you actually get 4G.

     

    Sprint isn't building out anything else in South Florida.  If I'm wrong, that let a sprint rep come on the record and say so.  They made a public announcement, they are done.  Literally done as soon as everyone figures out how much of a joke they are in 4G compared to ATT and Tmobile and even Verizon now that actually have mobile 4G,  not pockets of wifi that are useless while moving.  If you are even near one of those pockets.

    latest news is sprint moving to LTE, i'd be surprised if anymore wimax is done.  maybe some areas already mostly done, but thats it, we have obsolete phones that we paid top dollar for.  honestly, I don't see how sprint is going to recover from this disaster.  I know i'm out the door to tmobile or metro as soon as I can.

         There is no 4G in Miami Beach that I know of.  Never have seen it work on my Epic 4G.  (Promised for November 2010)  I am waiting for the Class Action Law Suite about paying for services not delivered or available.

    It's mind-blowing that Sprint doesn't have major "4g" coverage in Miami Beach to at least show that their services are good stuff to visitors using Sprint or new residents who may sign up. Maybe they figure it's a lost cause with all the international vistors and residents in Miami Beach who are on GSM and soon LTE.

    I just signed up for Sprint, but may not be staying past the 30 days because of the crappy "4g" service I am seeing in Southern Broward County. Sprint does have the best overall price for sort of unlimited compared to everyone else's sort of unlimited. T-mobile was my next choice, but the AT&T monopoly purchase made me look elsewhere. I wonder if frustrated Sprint customers end up going to Verizon LTE even with their totally crappy prices?

    As far as class-action lawsuits go, don't you have to hire a lawyer to take you on first? There is a never ending call for class-actions on tech company web sites which says something quite awful about the product quality control and the false promises of contracts of all these so-called reputable companies. And yet, how often do you see someone fork out the bucks to start the process rolling?

    you don't fork out any money for class action,  the lawyers get fees for it, but thats the problem, they get the fees and the class usually ends up with next to nothing.

    regardless, i'm surprised people even waste time posting here, its apparent that sprint could care less about its customers, they have proven that by blatent lies about where they would have 4G in south florida and compounded that by having reps say they are still building it out. 

     

    but they really don't care once they have you under contract.  I find it particulary amusing that when getting a phone replaced thats under warranty they charge you 35 dollars for the priveledge with the excuse that the phone manufacturer warranties it and you can go to them if you don't like it.

    Thats like toyota saying to go to the radio manufacturer if it breaks.

    interestingly 4g has poped up all over Coral springs and deerfield, problem is its in the wrong places. who needs 4g in the evergaldes ? turtles and snakes Dl'n animla porn?   Southgate south has it, 595 has it, 95 up to hilsbero blvd has it.  I should have it wher eim sitting now per sensorly as it shows that othe rusers have sucssfully connected to it but alas I can not.

    I have spoken to sprint about this and they have swapped phones 2x done all sorts of testing and it seems that if you have a realy old acocunt 6+ years there is a switch that needs to be set in the system to allow 4g to connect. Once it was set I was able to conenct for 2 days then it went dead again. A call back to sprint presented the same issue, the account switch had to be set again. Thsi has happend 3 times so far and its every 2-3 days. It seems like there might be a lot of users that could conenct but might not have the feature tuned on even though they pay for and have 4g service.   Has anyone had any luck connecting in the coral springs area ?
