Dear Sprint (PCS): You suck!

Samantha's second Samsung A560 died last week, so I got mad and called Sprint to try and get out of the contract. No way -- a kidney and my eldest child is the only way to get out of this deal with the devil.

So, until March 2008, the phone will be powered down and stuck in a drawer. We will grudgingly pay the bill, knowing that we can then tell them to take a long walk off a short pier and not re-subscribe.

On Sunday, we added Samantha to my T-Mobile plan and she now has several fine phones to choose from out of my existing collection. I really don't see us going back to a CDMA service...ever.

  1. How does the fact that Sprint is CDMA have anything to do with their phone dying unexpectedly or requiring a service contract? Every provider I know of has an early termination fee, and phones are hardly their fault - it's not like Sprint manufactured it.

  2. Unfortunately, my issue lies with T-Mobile, who, up until recently, was a wonderful provider but now that I'm not able to go elsewhere until 2009, I'm doomed. Ah, well. I have no intentions whatsoever of renewing with them, though I've been with them five years or so. I trust you will have a good experience with them since, as I said, it wasn't until recently that I was displeased.Cheers!
