Gosh Dangit Sprint. You are some clever beasties. I'm trying my best not to curse here because I'm an adult, but it's very difficult.
I switched to Sprint about two years ago from Verizon and have not been disappointed. Verizon likes to say they've got the best coverage, but in my experience they didn't where it mattered. At my house as well as my work I had service where Verizon and AT&T (etc) customers did not, so of course I have loved the coverage despite campaigns from other providers.
I love my Moto X and when I found out that the 2nd Generation Moto X was being rated the highest out of ALL the smartphones put on the market (yes, above your precious iPhone as well) I was ecstatic to receive it. BUT YOU AREN'T GOING TO CARRY IT.
In a disappointed flurry I went to see if I could find a comparable plan on another network so I could have the flipping phone I want but they're all more expensive and offer less data.
So, while I can't complain about a cheap and great phone plan, I can say that if saving money wasn't so appealing to me I would switch in a heartbeat. You had better believe when I have ANY sort of disposable income, I'll be switching to a provider that can offer me exactly what I want.
Maybe not, I'm very angry. I love that you guys are the only place that has unlimited data. But this limitation is the most frustrating thing I've dealt with, after AT&T's customer service that is. I predict half of Moto X users will switch, and the other half (which I'm in) will stay because you guys know no other company can beat your unlimited plan. Gosh dangit.
That's because the iPhone was exclusive to AT&T for a while before Sprint could offer it. No one else had it.
Not offering the Moto X makes no sense though. Especially since it's been confirmed that they are getting the Nexus 6. Someone made a stupid decision.
Just wanted to add that I feel the same way. The Nexus 6 is way too big and expensive. The second generation X would be just right. I am interested in early upgrading my wife and I to this phone, but I'm definitely staying with Sprint. I hope Sprint is seriously considering carrying this phone.
I also feel the same way. I have the Galaxy Nexus and my wife the Nexus 5 (off contract). I have been without a contract for a while now, and wanted to upgrade to the Nexus 6 but was disappointed that the leak about the massive screen were true. I'd get a Nexus 5 but I prefer the AMOLED screen the Moto X Gen 2 has. I have been a Sprint customer for over 16 years but I am seriously considering changing carriers if the network is not upgraded (hardly get LTE in the Bay Area) and the company offers the phones customers want.
Carl, you don't speak enough English to understand my frustration. I'm probably going Nexus 6 for my next upgrade because I really like the features. The only thing I don't like is the size. But, and this had nothing to do with Sprint (or any cell phone provider) the newer phones with the best features are getting bigger.
I echo the statements above. If the new Moto X is not offered by Sprint quickly, you will lose all 4 lines we currently have with Sprint. I do NOT want the new Nexus, I want the new Moto X and so do the other 3 lines we have! The shortsightedness of this decision may prove to have some unintended consequences. Once you have lost a customer base, you are unlikely to get them back. Sprint should be more worried about maintaining market share and potentially gaining but certainly not with decisions like this one.
