As someone who has used Sprint PCS on and off since 1995, I find this amusing. Being a prick is now a clever way to cancel your service without paying the $200 fee.

Merger of equals... DaimlerChrysler... SprintNextel... LOL.

Positives for Sprint: JD Power awards for call quality. Fastest and widest data network on the entire continent.

I hated Sprint when I had them! I am much happier with Cingular now.

*Alot* of people hate Sprint, and when I had them they were nothing but good to me. I never had a problem they couldnt resolve and for awhile they had the highest technology service and phones.

Im with Verizon now and rue the day I left Sprint. Verizon is VERY costly even though they have high quality service.

I wont even consider ATT or T-Mobile until HSDPA is rolled out widely.

BTW... Anyone remember the pre-cursor to todays PCS networks? http://www.peppertreefund.com/Images/PriorInvestments/primeco_logo.jpg

I use T-Mobile, therefore I am a sheeple.

I had a lot of trouble with AT&T years ago then they bought Cingular or whatever and AT&T became Cingular. After that my problems were gone, that and I finally bought a decent phone instead of using the freebie junk.
Now they are doing a name swap again and I am sort of puzzled but whatever.
I don't care as long as my service works.

Why would anybody complain about being dropped from a service that they have to call customer assistance that many times anyway? I would thank the powers that be and start looking for a new cellular company.
