I was with Sprint years before Hesse took over. It was an absolute nightmare. If there's someone to thank, for Sprint having more "feature" phones nowadays than it ever had in the past, it's Dan Hesse. The guy turned a company that was basically on the verge of going under, to a company that really started to compete a little more than it had in the past.

It was always seen as an "uphill" battle, ever since Hesse took over as CEO. Some even criticized him heavily for leaving ATT to go to Sprint, just because analysts felt that it was going to be a "losing" cause. I have no doubt that Sprint would've been bought out or completely vanished if it weren't for that guy. He's a "forward thinking" type of guy. And you better believe, if the investors decide to can him at some point, they're going to bring in someone that'll drive up prices like crazy, just to make those investors happy and feel like they're making a profit. That's the last thing any of us want.
