Why am I still on Sprint??
 

 
So after the big let down on the Huawei Mate 9. And me selling my Note 4 for $225 via Swappa(come up) I was forced to buy another phone.

So I copped Motorola X Pure Edition 64gb(best buy had it for $249.99)

So I'm thinking it'll be a simple call, swap and it's on.

They're telling me i need a sim card or some type of code (I think universal code)

They tell me the card is free but we will charge you for shipping unless you go to a store.

So I go to store and the rep like "sim card for what phone?".

I tell her Motorola.....Oh we don't have that type of sim card. No store does.


So I'm right I went down there. Called them from a cell phone in store. Homey said 3 business days for sim card...Free.


FD up sh*t is I shipped my phone to homey activated but tomorrow morning I'll call Sprint to temporary suspend service. Idw to talk to them anymore tonight.


S/N t mobile told me all I need is $21 for sim. Bill will be 75. 5$ off for autopsy and employment discount

Been on Sprint 12+ years, never had issues. Have heard HORROR stories though

I'm going through it with my cable right now though ever since Verizon sold out to Frontier. Frontier ain't sh*t.

1st crazy issue. Been with them since 2004. I guess it's my ignorance to not knowing how unlocked phones work.

So the phone works now cause I'm on wifi but once I step outside..... I'm a goner.

Kind of crazy they(maker of unlock phone) don't include sim card

Rep in store told me they do have some but only for Galaxy & Apple. They don't have for Motorola cause they don't sell Motorolas in store.

Sprint shipped one tho.

NSS - National Sales Support???

It sounds like they were just giving u a hard time since u didn't get the phone directly from them. There's no type of sim specifically for Apple or Samsung, if your phone takes a nano sim then they're all the same or if it takes a micro sim they're all the same.

They were giving u the run around in hopes that you'd get rid of your unlocked phone and buy something through them.

Crazy sh*t is I kind of thought that. I never had a sim phone but that sh*t didn't make sense.

However what did I expect from a store that rep told me "we don't sell phones outright. You have to either finance or lease" around time LG G4 came out. Same store

Wow I guess they weren't. I've never had sprint but I've been on all of the other big 3 at some point or another so I've never heard of this before. It's crazy sprint would make customers jump through hoops like this just to use their own device on the network. Seems like that would alienate some of their customer base.

The rep you talked to in store is an idiot. They should carry the 3 in 1 SIM card kit unless it's sold out. It's available online to avoid dealing with the people in store.

Not anymore. Credit checks have become much more strict. Sprint doesn't want any part with customers with sub-par credit, especially now that it's lease or installment only for phones if you were to buy a new phone from Sprint. You can still BYOD and start service with a no credit check option though.

This isn't true at all. My credit is sh*t and I just switched over to Sprint at the beginning of the month and only had to pay $145 down (traded in my old phone so I didn't have to pay nothing). Got the iPhone 7 plus. Had to pay $400 at T-Mobile for a regular 6S in 2015 and my credit was better then. I've been with all 4 of the carriers at least once in the past 7 years and Sprint is the best in terms of saving money and getting the most for your money. They also have the best upgrade program (JUMP On Demand is trash).
