    That article is bogus and the April fool's date makes it even more unbelievable. When it's announced I'll believe it, and what if they turned around and said the 69.99 individual plan that's required for silver updates was their industry first and made that their new truly unlimited voice+data plan?

    Then you wouldn't be down talking RUMORS before they're even announced would you? Also telling me to do math on RUMORED plan changes is like telling the tooth fairy to predict how many dollars she'll hand out next week. Don't jump the gun, this April fool's RUMOR doesn't have a leg to stand on.

    Yeah, it says to qualify for "premier gold" you have to have a minimum $89.99 plan. That doesn't make sense when they're still pushing the $69.99 any mobile any time plan.
    Let's hope this is just a viscous rumor & nothing more.

    I know that Sprint will be announcing the world's first quad core 4 ghz phone from HTC which comes pre-rooted with a custom jellybean rom with a 5 inch screen which shrinks when you need to put it in your pocket, and folds out to 10 inches for when you have the opportunity to watch movies. The battery is said to last 40 days and 40 nights, while torrenting on 4g, and talking on the phone at the same time. It will only cost 50 dollars to upgrade, and because you are a loyal customer already, the unlimited everything plan will be reduced to $25/ month.

    This actually works! But much like metal hailate lighting fixtures your brain has to warm up to it. Give it 5 mins on high and I guarantee you'll be seeing in everything in 3D for the next week. :D

    Handy.. are u a current Sprint client?

    if you are not.. and you just returned a phone... and canceled the service. You have to wait 90days.. before you can try sprint again.

    transform does suck... but after Jan 30... all smartphone (including non-4G) phones will be charged the extra $10/month.

    Some other possibilities: 1) Allowing removal of Sprint bloatware; 2) Allowing toggle off of UI to stock android on premium phones; 3) Sprint-Netflix partnership so that SprintTV might actually be worthwhile.

    But I also think the sleeper might be that Sprint will be running dual Wimax and LTE. Sprint's always said it could easily transition to LTE, and perhaps it will to get it's 4G coverage up and running faster.

    Why so fast? Getting people off the network quickly. Once unlimited dies it's eventual death even on Sprint, gotta have some way to make sure you aren't aware of the fees you're racking up.

    Home cable - a little competition could serve that industry well. Cable prices are way out of pace for what they should be.

    Sprints big announcement may be Google music. A Google music service with unlimited downloads for $10.00 monthly. That is all.

    If that's it, MSFT missed big time with the Zune Pass linking to the WP7 phones.

    I would love to see that happen, but how exactly is that going to be a wireless industry first, it is not even a music first can we all say rhapsody? And why have a blaine? I really think they are going to start opening up wimax 2.

    That would be nice. How would WiMax 2 translate to our current WiMax devices, and furthermore, I wonder how the speeds would compare to Verizon's beast of an LTE.

    I bet it's going to be another 4G devices (that is not the iPhone). Perhaps an Android with a feature that hasn't been seen before, a 4G webOS device, or maybe CDMA+4G Windows Phone 7.

    Dan will announce a new industry first, as promised. As a follow up to the last industry first "Sprint iD", users will now be able to create their own "iD Packs" and upload them to the market. However, a Premium Usage Fee will be required for this functionality.
