Quick background, I have been a Sprint customer for 14 years, and I currently have 4 lines. With the today's announcement of the detials for Windows Phone 8, I am just letting you know when Windows Phone 8 phones hit the market, I am buying at least one
not sure what you mean by no one is selling wp8 on CDMA, verizon is, just not release but will be very shortly - http://shop.verizonwireless.com/?id=windowsphone
I think because no one is actually selling the phones yet. You could preorder Verizon phone just like AT&T and T-Mobile I believe. I believe the first phones that will actually be on the market will be on T-Mobile in mid-November and then AT&T and Verizon should be around the same time. So I think no reason to have said no CDMA, as no WP8 phones are actually available in the US yet on any of the carriers.
DEGoff I agree but there are several threads in the community where people are up in arms that Sprint doesn't have a phone available yet. I was just saying no one does. I just always compare Sprint to Verizon because of the network similarities.
14knight. Let me help you. NewSprint is not getting any windows phones anytime soon (aka beyond spring) even if sprint does get a windows phone late summer it will not be one of the flagship phones. Your company was sold to the 3rd largest phone company in Japan. your new owner is a loyal apple fan that Steve Jobs called to give him a heads up on the original iPhone. So no, there will be no windows phone. Stop lying to customers. We are sick of being 3rd rate customers of a third rate phone company.
7 years 5 lines 4 days till I cancel as you are 3 updates behind on HTC arrive updates 2 flagship wp8 devices available on all but 1 carrier (sprint) who has the same number of windows phones as I will loose seconds of sleep about leaving you (zero). See you all on at&t, Verizon, or t-mobile. They all are waiting for sprint customers. Call now or 14knight will stall some more reading from the same scripts that have been published to the web by wpcentral and others.
Ahhhh..... Finally, my preorder is in and my shinny yellow 920 will be shipped out on the 12th.... I have paid my account up in full so all I have to do is take my 920 in and port my number and leave all this sprint shiz in the past.... I hope that everyone on this post can get their hands on the one they want at some point, but it will require leaving sprint.... Good luck!!!!
Congratulations Shizzapro. We'll all be following suit soon enough. And adding adding to the insult that beautiful machine, Lumia 920, is being sold for $99. Ouch sprint. Ouch.
That seals the deal. I've been with Sprint now for 4 years and 3 lines, and I've dealt with not having the latest phones for an additional 4 months to a year after Verizon gets them. But having not even said when they plan on having a Windows Phone 8 device, and the Lumia 920 being released in 2 days time on AT&T, and the pre-order for that majestic phone being 99 bucks, I'm going to eat the ETF and move back to AT&T.
It's been fun, Sprint, but I don't NEED unlimited data (I use less than 6G/month), and everything else I wanted was on AT&T already. The "Now Network" is a pretty horrible joke, by the way, since you have late rollouts for every phone and your 4G LTE is pitiful in comparison to VZW and AT&T. "Now Waiting For Current Technology Network" should be the actual slogan.
It's funny. I started with Sprint when they first came out. I even remember the commercials they had with the 2 guys on the radio just saying hay. I have 4 lines. I've been a Windows phone user for many many years. Currently using Windows Mobile on my HTC touch pro 2. Tried the Arrive and while it's a good phone I found it was mostly a social media phone. I've been chewing my nails for the release of Windows Phone 8 and so shocked to find out that Sprint may not get this phone. If this is true I will for sure be droping Sprint (yup my contract is up) and move to Verizon or AT&T.
It's sad Sprint put all there money into the Iphone and are scared to jump on the Windows 8 train. Hell if they said we are getting the phone in 6 months I'd wait, but nothing. And your right as for the Windows Phones in the sprint store, it's like the staff are told to point you in a different direction and try to sell you a android or Iphone.
My Lumia 920 arrives tomorrow from AT&T, officially ending a very long chapter with Sprint and final post here. Wish you all the best, you deserve it! Just not going to come from Sprint.
shut the helk up!!! what color did you get? I ordered mine yesterday morning around 8am east coast and they told me that it would not be in my hands till 12th - 14th... I read something about the yellow being a little behind some of the other colors... But you have to filter what you read on the internet because so much of it is not true...
