Sprint Pays you to bring your T-Mobie phone to them

By: t-marco May 12th, 2011

As you know, Sprint is fighting against T-Mobile – AT&T acquisition.   But this time , Sprint is not using its Fat (cigar addicted) lady to tell you that T-MO-AT&T will not work for you. Now Sprint is waling to pay all the fess ( up to 175 US$) you will be charged if you leave T-Mobile and switch to them. Even they will avoid the ETF if you leave Sprint and return to T-Mobile if the acquisition is not approved.

”Do you have the feeling the AT&T/T-Mobile won’t end with a ‘Happily Ever After?’,”… what you think?

This promotion will initially be aimed at business customers and evaluated for future use with non-business accounts.

gdgt 2011

Hi everyone, as you may know I recently attended gdgt live San Francisco 2011 on behalf of Sprintusers! I have never gone to any kind of a gadget show so I went into this show with an open mind and a good feeling of excitement. Due to my having a day job I did not make the pre-show press conference which was a quarter of the show itself. As I browsed the show I heard that some companies such as Sling and some others didn’t even have booths at the gdgt show instead they had presentations at the press event so I do apologize for not being able to make it.

I arrived shortly after the show began and got my name tag and drink tickets (no I didn’t use them :-) ) then I was greeted with some free gdgt swag, a couple t-shirts, plenty of stickers, iPhone 3G? Cases (I’m assuming leftovers from last year) all neatly tucked in a non descript bag. One of the first booths I stopped at was the one I was most excited for, HTC. The booth had a few people at it but I made it to the front, and for the first time of the night found myself completely ignored by the reps – this we will touch more on later.

I then proceeded over across the way to OnLive, a service with potential. It’s a cloud gaming service that currently is available on Mac or PC as well as a standalone consoles that is the size of a mid-sized external harddrive. The potential comes from shown support for the iPad and according to what the presenter was talking about, support for iPhone and Android is on the way as well. Essentially, you have 2 choices to go with. You can have a Netflix style pricing model where you pay $10/month and get unlimited access to a library of 50 games and growing. Or if you prefer, you can buy the games individually and play them standalone unlimited as well. Initially, the presenter gave me and my best friend both a VIP pass for 1 free game up to $59.99 value, but later on we both ended up winning free consoles as well thanks to the #gdgtsf hashtag giveaway.

Dan Hesse Addresses Negative Impact Proposed AT&T/T-Mobile Merger Will Bring

By: Juan May 11th, 2011

Latest Sprint Press Release

Sprint Nextel CEO Dan Hesse testified today before members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, voicing opposition to the proposed takeover of T-Mobile by AT&T. In his testimony, Hesse contrasted the current vibrant competitive wireless industry which benefits the American consumer against a vision of what would result from recreating a 1980s-style duopoly.

“The wireless industry thrives on competition, which, in turn, drives investment, innovation, consumer choice, job creation and U.S. global leadership in wireless communications,” said Mr. Hesse. “If AT&T is permitted to devour one of the two remaining independent national wireless carriers, while the rest of the world achieves advances in technology and innovation for the 21st century, the U.S. will go backwards – toward last century’s Ma Bell.”

Mr. Hesse noted that duopolistic control of the wireless market, which this takeover threatens to create, will provide AT&T and Verizon approximately 80 percent of the market, creating irreparable harm to:

“Fat Lady smoking a cigar ” the new image of AT&T-T-Mobile , according with Sprint

By: t-marco May 11th, 2011

Sprint  is the first and one of the most important wireless companies that is against AT&T-T-Mobile acquisition. Sprint does not want the be way behind if the proccess passes FCC and be the third in place, only controlling less than 20% of the wireless industry. That is why Sprint has just  used was  this ad, mocking T-Mobile’s own recent ads featuring a brunette in a pink dress — mocking AT&T and Verizon as old, white balding men.

The ad, which features a cigar-smoking man in a similar pink dress, used the tagline “It makes sense if you don’t think about it,” and complains the deal will result in less innovation and higher prices. However, the ad — funded in part by Sprint and supported by groups like Public Knowledge and Media Access Project.

AT&T this morning heads before the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights to defend their planned acquisition of T-Mobile.

We will wait to hear from you AT&T.

Sprint and Motorola : we have some Android phones for your business

By: t-marco May 5th, 2011

Motorola Mobility and Sprint today jointly unveiled two new Android smartphones, the Titanium and the XPRT, that target business users. The two devices look almost the same, with 3.1-in. touchscreens and physical Qwerty keyboards. What are the difference? .. The XPRT has rounded corners and a sleeker look than the Titanium. The Titanium, meanwhile, has angular corners and is built military-grade tough to handle dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation and high and low temperatures.

The XPRT, by contrast, is a world phone, supporting both CDMA and GSM networks. It also has mobile hotspot capability in Sprint’s 3G networks, offering support for up to five Wi-Fi ready devices.

The XPRT runs a new version of Android, the Froyo 2.2, while Titanium runs Android 2.1.

Sprint Continues to Fight the Merger

By: Juan May 3rd, 2011

“Sprint cited its concerns that the merger would hurt consumers in seeking the state’s permission to intervene there.”

“Clearly, the interest of the public in this state will be adversely affected by the proposed merger because it is anticompetitive and will hurt consumers by raising prices, restricting innovation and limiting choices of wireless providers,”

Sprint has filed paperword in West Virginia stating that the proposed merger between AT&T and T-Mobile would cause more damage than good.  We’ve read a lot about this issue for a few weeks now, but what are your thoughts?
