...is it going to cost me to end my contract with Sprint, based on the following:
wow I too have been with sprint for more than 10 years was going to update my wifes evo 3d with the htc one but upgrade is 199.99 for loyal customers but new customers who probably cant even a ford the monthly service can get it for 99.99 the htc one is already one year into its life cycle it comes shipped with 4.1 ics the upgrade software is 4.2 JB heck I'm still rocking the evo 4g and am running 4.3 and the developers are hard at work to get it to run on 4.4 kit kat if they make me end up paying the 199.99 it better not be a refurbished phone and the reason is the one does not have a removable battery so if its refurbished it already has some of its battery life cycles used (not cool) the only reason i was looking at the one was from what I have read is the bench marks are higher that the rest using the quad core processor
I did all my research, ran the specs, read the pro reviews, compared it against everything else out there...and it's easily been the worst single purchase I've ever made.
I feel the same way! Been with sprint for 13 years and I hate this phone. Dropped calls and the data service can't hold any connection, through my WiFi or sprint data. It is fast and love the camera, but I miss my Evo. I got it first week out and I am anxiously waiting to get a new phone already.
You guys are hilarious! I contacted the sprint store to have them order a replacement for the defective replacement, and it came in today. Before I even left the store, the tech offered to order me another one because this replacement is defective as well. The kicker, it's the same problem my original new HYC One had.
So, my third replacement is on it's way.
Apparently refurbished is as good as new with Sprint and HTC.
Sent from my second defective refurbished replacement Sprint phone.
Currently on my third refurbished replacement phone. It wouldn't turn on today even though it had a 68% charge. So, I may be returning it for a fourth refurbished replacement device...because...you know...refurbished is just as scrappy as brand new.
No wonder HTC is failing and Sprint bleeds customers every quarter.
since you havent had it for to long do a Factory Reset on it and then see what it does after that..cant exactly hurt anything .

This is the supposed coverage Sprint says is in my neighborhood, but unless I am connecting to my internet WI-FI, I can't make or receive calls or use data (internet, text, etc.). So, at what point is Sprint violating the terms of the contract by not providing service ?
