    I think it would be a shame if they get rid of Hesse.. he's the best thing to happen to Sprint in a long time. Hopefully (probably), this is just some overreaction the media likes to heighten for a story.

    I too hope it's just that. Wondering if this is a discussion about LTE spending.

    Now is not the time for a change of CEO. It seems like a bad idea to make such a major shift, in the middle of a major project. Whether it's a success or a failure, he needs to see it through to the end.

    Wow. I really hope they let the man do his job. Firing him now would be like changing contractors in the middle of remodeling your house, only worse.

    On paper they have some great things to offer. Unfortunately, they lie in the same bed as T-Mo. They both need a new aggressive marketing direction. Sprint has unlimited data, now make it not crappy and brag(promote) the hell out of it.
    T-Mo you have the best pricing and solid customer service. Now hit the competition head on with the proof.
    ADAPT OR DIE is the needed approach

    Well I do hope for Mr Hesse to turn Sprint around but let's be honest. Since 2007 he took over the job and it has been a struggle. Investors are starting to have doubts and so the pressure is starting to mount. I've been a long time Sprint customer but if LTE is not up to par and they get rid of unlimited data plan, I will look at other options.

    Do you remember what Sprint was like pre-Hesse? Lmfao, it wasn't a great place to be. He has done everything in his power to make things better, which I 110% believe he has.

    To be honest I don't know how Sprint was before Hesse. I never had to deal with them because my girlfriend at the time work there. I also had a flip phone and never really pay attention to phones till I got the Samsung Instinct. I just remembered how they had trouble with Nextel because she would complain how they had issues. But I'm all in for Sprint to turn it around and hoping for the best.

    "promote the hell out of it <sprint>"

    if it was not for web boards and blogs, i would have NO idea what was going on in the life of Sprint. To date, i can honestly say that i have not once heard or seen anything on TV or radio about the drive towards the new "network vision" and i live in one of the upcoming markets.

    am i alone here?

    I think he has done a great job at Sprint and they are heading in the right direction. If they can get LTE going right, have good coverage, and they keep unlimited data this will be a major turning point for Sprint.

    They have been doing better about getting great phones and getting their name out there. Customer service is good. Only carrier with Unlimited data. And prices are great for what they offer. I hope to be a Sprint customer for a long time

    I actually don't think they are doing much marketing on the new network. So you aren't alone. Once LTE hits you will see commercials.

    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.

    I think it's safe to say that FMMV in this case. I have zero reception issues where I live and work, nor have I been bit by the shitty data speeds bug yet.
