not trying to sound mean but youre paying Sprint for phone service not built in apps on a phone.
Sorry fireguy, I disagree. I bought the phone from Sprint, from a Sprint Store. Every time I boot it Sprints logo shows. For all intents and purposes it is a Sprint branded product. In my book the buck stops at Sprint. Passing the buck to HTC is poor customer service. If I buy a new Chevy car from a Chevy dealer and have a problem, and asked the dealer for help, and they told me to contact the factory in Detroit, I would feel the same way I feel about this.
Experienced the same problem and customer service acted like they didn't know about it. This is clearly a stunt to steer customers towards more data usage. At least own up to it Sprint!!
I have been using the Next Radio app suggested previously in basic mode. Works pretty good with minimal data usage. NextRadio - Android Apps on Google Play
since it was pointed out by another customer in here that HTC is the one that removed it AND told you guys where to go to get it back..heck he even mentioned that this was removed from more than one HTC device..soooo...must be sprint right?
Sprint's probably the reason the HTC line over at Verizon had theirs removed as well..the power they must wield to have control over their competitors...yikes..
Since most Sprint customers have unlimited data, how would that benefit Sprint? Seems like it would have the opposite effect. More traffic to slow down the network. Sprint already has a reputation for not having the best network, so this would be counter-productive.
how does this even remotely make sense?
l of the carriers are phasing out unlimited data plans. They also gain from streaming music subscriptions and music downloads. No problem with Sprint pushing for more profit centers, just don't like existing phone features to be taken away. Also, I think Sprint should get the feature restored instead of punting to HTC.
said over and over so far but this was removed by HTC..not Sprint..not Verizon..HTC removed it.
last i checked Sprint still has unlimited data on the majority of the plans..so how would this affect them in the least? youre reaching for straws here.
