    Why wouldn't someone just go to Walmart and get a Straight Talk prepaid for $45 per month? No contract and uses the same network. Seems to be the same as the $90 plan Verizon is offering.

    I switched to Tmo last week because they offered an unlimited data-voice-text for $79.9/month!
    I am glad to see that prices are going lower ... Finally; they have made BILLIONS in profits for the past 5 years!

    This is where it is all heading. Voice plans will continue to drop and data will become more expensive, especially on smart phones where they mandate you have a data plan. VoIP such as skype have forced the carriers to rethink the price plans.

    I keep hearing a few folks sing the praises of TMO and I guess that's good if you are in a small pocket where their coverage holds up, but what about customer service and quality. Sprint is just trying to hold on until someone can buy them. Based upon network technology (CDMA) the natural suitor would be verizon but the FCC would never let that happen. Sprint is trying to keep subscribers and raise capital to make the switch to LTE. At that point they can merge with TMO successfully and make a run for it!

    From time to time, you have to wonder...... What was I saying?

    I reluctantly switched to Sprint after nine yrs with Tmobile. The main reason for switching was pricing. I now have 3 lines w unlimited text, data, 1500 minutes and free cell to cell for $132. This is my final price after all taxes and surcharges and applicable discounts. T mobile could not get anywhere near that price. And as for customer service, Sprint has not let me down thus far. In June I'm due for an upgrade and am hoping we will get the nexus one by then. I actually have less dropped calls with Sprint. Don't get me wrong, I loved T mobile and was extremely happy with their service. In the end pricing is what made me make the move. AT &T, Verizon and Tmobile are just simply more cost prohibitive for me. Sprint provides me what I need (unlimited text & data) at a price I can afford with good coverage in my area.

    hmmm... I have Two lines on tmobile. A G1 and My Berry. Both have unlimited everything (minutes,data,text,pics) both have insurance. $207.35 not bad. tmobile is great. But i must say ive been thinkin about switching to Verizon because everytime i call customer service i get somebody that i cant understand, and they cant understand me. its killin me what happened to the great customer service i used to get ??? FML.

    PS. nothing against people that have accents, im from Texas and you can hear it when i talk. but hell, customer service was my biggest reason for goin with Tmobile. now i cant get help when i need it. FML 2 times

    Because Sprint is the worst Cell Phone company known to man.

    Over priced, the phone selection sucks, the Customer Service Sucks.... i'd rather have Cricket than have Sprint... and i will not watch Nascar till they get get rid of them. im not giving them one more penny of mine....

    I've heard several rumors that T-Mo is looking to buy Sprint.

    I wonder if this sudden reduction of price by Verizon followed by AT&T is in preperation of the Tablet release which will need a carrier and the fact AT&T is losing it's iP rights opening the door for a ton of new customers weather it be a Tablet user or iP-4 user.

    There's a map for that.

    Because the coverage map is different. Just like bigs reds coverage map for prepaid service is different from post paid.
