Do they charge if I have insurance on my phone with a partially bad screen and the speaker is going out. It is a refurb that I got in May.

HTC Evo 4g.

not gonna lie, want to get the phone replaced and then either switch to my own plan or switch to a different provider and have a nice shiny phone to sell if the price is right. haha

Usually they will just replace parts on EVO's as the parts a very common to go bad. also no charge at all.

I'm working at autozone, they cut hours (regional manager needed to meet his goals to get his bonus) i was down to 17 hours a week. i walked in to this store to get my phone fixed and one of my former co-workers mentioned something about needing a tech, i needed the money to i took the job on, that was 3 weeks ago, i got a call today about a job i interviewed for back in september, they want me to start monday. Told my boss "hey, just got a call about a job that pays me 20% more, fully paid benefits, and has a regular schedule" she said "can't compete with that" so we shook hands and my last day back at sprint is tomorrow.

interesting, i wonder if icloud was turned off at one point and it didn't back the pictures up... or maybe its just sprint's terrible service? I'm really not sure. I always advise anyone with an iphone to backup their phone with itunes.

why cant i get shit for service anywhere anymore, other sprint phones have the same problem in the same areas as me, other providers phones work fine. and with them dropping the 1 year renewal for premium members and my bill getting rediculous, I am in the market for another provider to buy out the 5 lines on my plan. sad I was happy for 13 years with them, this year I have had enough. o and the new windows phones are very appealing now that the androids have followed the simple path of Apple

We are switching to Verizon at work and I am ecstatic! I am so sick of sprint. I wouldn't pay 1 red cent for sprint, I would rather go phoneless. The only reason I have it is because it is free.

they are using pretty much the same network as they were 3 years ago, before android was on everything.

android isn't going the way of apple

I got so tired of Sprints horrible data speeds that I loaded a Verizon prl on my phone and ran it for three months straight, using 10-12 gig per month of roaming (actually useful) Verizon data. That was enough for them to terminate my contract. I sold my GS3, and GS2, switched to tmobile and got a Note 2, and 2 GS2s with unlimited data for the same price as 2 lines on Sprint.
Sprint also carries the note 2, and this phablet is bad ass.

I wasn't talking west Michigan. I was talking Metro Detroit. Can't imagine what it's like in west MI - must not work at all.

For example, drive down I-96 from say Brighton to I-275. Service goes in/out constantly.

And, 2 years ago I was told they would be upgrading to "4G" soon...2 years later, network still blows and is rarely 3g
