    It's the day after Thanksgiving and doesn't look like Sprint is offering
    much this year other than 7pm N/W. Also drove by a few Sprint stores today
    while out shopping and didn't notice too many cars in the parking lots. Are
    the specials coming later or is this it?

    Looks like last years very successful $30 holiday special with 300 anytime
    and unlimited N/W plus $10 unlimited Vision plan is still $10 less than what
    they're currently offering. They could surely start that up again and get
    some new business.

    I'm sure that's not their bread and butter. They are not any better off
    with even 100,000 more subs with this plan as they need I believe $40-50 a
    month from everyone to break even.

    ====================

    Sprint averages close to $50 per phone, and is still losing money.

    Yeah- just like every other cellular company has done sometime during their
    lifetime. Nice try, Stevie.

    Actually, our ARPU is fairly high:

    "And Verizon, despite its strong revenue gains, is still=20
    generating a relatively low ARPU, Rosenbluth said.=20
    Verizon's ARPU per month in the first quarter was $47,=20
    compared with $59 for Sprint PCS and $67 for Nextel."

    And I think it ticked up just a little bit last quarter. =20
    Yes, our last quarterly results show $63.

    Oh, and our operating income is actually positive. The 3rd=20
    page of our release (labelled Page 2) shows that with=20
    "Adjusted EBITDA" of $912 million. We've got a lot of debt=20
    to get off our backs, no doubt about that. And that makes=20
    nothing guaranteed. But it's not *nearly* the Chicken=20
    Little scenario you'd like to portray.

    I *don't* speak for them.

    I started out with a $30 plan several years ago, and am at the $60 level now.
    Once you get a customer, you get a good chance to upsell/upgrade him later on.
