How many are returning the iPhone 4S?

Well, I'm here to add to the list. Like everyone else I have extremely low data speeds, i was hoping it get better but only has gotten worst. As of this past sunday when i called sprint about my iphone they told me to clear network settings and dial a ##....# number, since then i NO LONGER CAN HOLD 3G anywhere. I also been getting a huge amount of drop calls. I had 3 drop calls within 10-15 minutes. If it was a phone issue i figured other carriers would have the same problem, they dont!!

Sorry for the long story, i needed to vent.

For everyone who return the phone in store that paid cash, how much did you get back?

did you get a full refund?

I ask this due to the fact once i cancel im heading striaght to a verizon store or att store. let me know thanks.

I use to get good coverages but ever since the iPhone came out, coverages went from good to bad to worst. Then all of a sudden, they decide to start changing everything. It seems like Sprints plans of commiting to buy 30.5 million iPhones, in order to gain subscribers, backfired. Not only are they losing lots of new iPhone subscriber, they done messed up with all their recent "changes" and lost a handful of loyal customers. If Sprints network and "changes" continues the way it does, they are going to lose even more customer (both iPhone users and loyal customers). By then, I wonder what they are going to do with all those unused iPhones. This was probably what they feared and is probably trying to make it hard for people who want to switch back to their previous carrier, or is trying to make those who bought the iPhone, keep them at all cost.

Well I am returning 2 on Friday, a 64gb 4s and 8gb 4.  Me and my girl had hooked up evo's with everything on them literally. We were very happy with them, but we are die hard apple lovers we own 2 MacBooks iPad2 64gb. We figured it's time for the iPhone, since we been waiting forever for. These iPhone's for sprint are the biggest joke, I have been with sprint for 12 years and never had a problem with any of the androids, so that is where I will be going.

Anyone knows what's sprint's best android phone now

Instead of investing there 20 billions on iPhone 4s, they should have invested 10 billions on there 3G/4g network, then another 10 billion on apple iPhone 4s.

Going back to android and if the problems still persist, I will end my career with them 12+ years

What a shame

Extremely disappointed

Don't be surprised if some one jumps off a bridge off of this, it will be on sprints head lol, then they will get sued, and then AT&T will buy them and it will be  all over lmaooo.

Over a freaking iPhone.

This all came up in simple casual conversation with a few of your close friends? Are you carrying a clipboard or are you using an Excel spreadsheet to keep track?

     I orderded mine online with CC and returned to local store per a phone call to customer service.  The local store tried to charge a $35 restock free but removed that when  I requested they call thier corporate office.   No fees at all, completely free if you return in 14 days.

I think that makes 34 phones returned?  hard to keep track

@spencerhawkins45822- No, its not enough said. Sprints data speeds have been so slow the unlimited data is worthless. That commercial with all the cell phones rocketing up and dropping off has become comical to me. I love the Idea of unlimited data, but on a network where you cant even hit 1 let alone 2 gigs a month because of the slow speed unlimited data becomes useless. Once Im out of contract I will be looking at other providers if sprint doesnt get this fixed.

just got back from the apple store. they said that apple and sprint are working on the speed issues. this exact same thing happened with the verizon iphone 4 launch. they ran some diagnostics on my iphone 4s and said its fine.

keep in mind this is the biggest launch that sprint has EVER had.

I have Verizon Now... I switched only because I needed to add a whole bunch of lines on my account, and someone else is willing to be on my account and pretty much pay all of it... so, I switched, because sprint couldnt allow me to have 5 lines.

Mine is working just fine too! I think alot of people are jumping on the "i hate sprint" bandwagon. Now I am in no way denying that people arent haven issues but I think so many of us are forgeting that both AT&T and Verzion had these same issues when they first introduced the Iphone on their respective networks. Heck trust they are having issues right now as well. However everyone already expected the worst from sprint and some (not all) are really just playing into the hype and jumping on board for every little thing.

Trust me Ive had my issue with Sprint which is why i left them a year ago. But the issues many are having to do with one or two or so things:

1. Location

2. The phone

When I was living uptown (what they call downtown here lol) I barely got two bars on my hero or evo to save my life and there was a cell tower right across the street.However my boyfriends boost phone worked just fine. Fast forward a few months and i move a few miles away, still the same city, nowhere near a tower and what do you know? Signal city! lol Location really plays a big part with how well your cell will work.

When i first got my Evo and the majority of the time that I had it, that thing was slow! My hero was the same way. Hinting I may have just gotten a bad lemon of a phone. Funny thing is I went through 3 Hero's all had the same issue but not to many people made a ruckus about that, though I know I wasnt the only one.

Guys lets be real, we all know that no matter the network, Apple's Iphones are always know to have bugs and kinks that need to be worked out in the first few months before everything is smooth sailing. Also the influx of customers switching to sprint and other things has yes cause the network to act a bit funky for some.

I'd say give it til Christmas or the the first of 2012 for things to stablize, or if you can wait until then to activate then do so. Issues should be worked out by then.

Ive only has my cell a few days, was waiting for my number to port or migrate as they call it over from Boost (thats a whole nuther story in itself lol). But I can tell you I have all of my bars, my texts are coming in just fine, my wifi is blazing fast and I have el cheapo Netgear router and Siri just worked fine and allowed me to set to appointments for later this month.

Im sorry so many of you are having problems, hopefullu things will get working for you!
