Here is the review anyway:
I’ve been an iPhone user on AT&T for ages, iPhone 2, 3 and 4. As much as I dislike AT&T’s customer service and pricing, everything does basically work
On recommendation from friends using iPhone 4 and Android on Sprint, I switched over when iPhone 5 was released.
Not a good move. We have 3 phones and none stay connected to the network for any length of time – we always see the “could not activate cellular data” error. The only way to connect is to switch into and out of airplane mode. On the rare times the phones do connect, the network (on 3G even though Sprint has a laugh and charges for “premium data”) is amazingly slow – like 14.4 dialup would be faster.
As my daughter says “going to Sprint is like changing from a smartphone to an ordinary phone”
Oh – the phone my wife uses has a defect and gives horrible call quality, need to get it to the store for replacement.
If it worked, iPhone 5 would be OK. The 4 and 4s had way better build quality though. There are a lot of posts on the Sprint forums and elsewhere about the poor iPhone 5 performance.
Hopefully there will be a solution that doesn’t involve buying an iPhone 6 or switching to another carrier!
Steve Jobs must be turning in his grave – I can’t believe this is the experience he wanted his customers to have to endure!
So how about it, Sprint? You going to fix it?
