    A business model where people do things online instead of in a store saves a bunch of money in the long run. If they want to go after a younger crowd, that could be the way to go. And in some...

    For them, it's like Nextel was with Boost. You get the same coverage area and can use the same phones on prepaid, but at a cheaper rate than postpaid. There are a number of perks when going with...

    This all sounds like what Boost started doing years ago. They wanted to have "serious" dealers, so they would let larger companies come in an cannibalize a market. In my old market, they stopped...

    I'm wondering how they define "5G". Having a speed cap on a 5G phone is like having a sports car in rush hour.

    It was an old tactic to hijack meaningful articles and conversation years ago. And people naturally want to fell that what they are spending money on is the best thing out there. Even with the...

    Sadly, they are inheriting a model that only wants to compensate dealers that have a ton of stores. They may see this as an opportunity to have stores that sale their television services in the...

    I think it's inevitable that they will go the postpaid route as Dish Wireless. Or they will use Virgin Mobile as a postpaid brand. Dish has been trying to get into the wireless game for years and...

    I had the same issues years ago. Sprint just had a better network where I lived. Once they started sharing towers, T-Mobile finally had coverage that worked properly where I'm at. Sprint's old...

    I think the issue is a number of stores are close to existing Metro stores, so it would violate the dealer agreements to pick up those locations. If I remember correctly, dealers with multiple...

    The US is known for slower and more expensive data. When I was in Korea on the subway underground, I would average 120+ Mbps. Nothing near that here in the US. The fact that there have been...

    A number of dealers would make people get the highest rate plan if they were porting over and getting a free phone so they could make something off of the transaction. They would say that you had to...

    One can also check Amazon and see how soon they can get a phone on Prime as well. My OnePlus 7 Pro came via eBay for under $300. I always recommend having an extra phone around just in case your...

    I used to run phone some Boost stores, and I would never go to a phone store for service in the US again, regardless of my carrier. I can get by on "budget" phones or last year's model(s) just fine,...

    Years ago when Boost was switching from iDen to CDMA phones, the CDMA phones were only going to the place like RadioShack and Target. Because people wanted those phones for picture messaging and...

    This sounds like addition by subtraction. They will get rid of dealers who aren't making money since they won't be making money on these plans, but they can say that the plans were there to try and...

    I had mixed emotions yesterday driving by a Sprint store and seeing a banner that was 25% Sprint and 75% T-Mobile. Selling Boost really kept the phone stores I ran alive for years longer than they...

    I haven't been in the northeast in a long time, but I remember my old Sprint service being good in areas where T-Mobile wasn't as good. But that was more of the tri-state area. Not sure about...

    I agree. If the network is similar to T-Mobile, and the price is going to be similar to T-Mobile, but they don't offer everything that T-Mobile can offer, there's not point of sticking with them. ...

    And now people will understand part of why AT&T and Verizon opposed this merger. Verizon still has a sizable lead, but things are too close for comfort. If they keep their promise of lowering...

    I'm wondering what the 5G version will be like. With the economy being what it is, and no one having a clue when it will correct itself, a lot of people won't be in the market for a $1000+ phone for...

    I'm not surprised by Verizon doing this. For Dish to be as profitable as investors would want, they'd have to go more of the postpaid route. Customers will look at it and say why should I pay $70 a...
