    Consumer Reports in its February 2004 AGAIN rates SprintPCS service the
    worst of all major cellular providers.

    It's stock has gone up lately (23% in December) but thats as an
    arbitrage bet that SprintPCS will soon be bought out.

    Not according to Wall Street- you should read more.

    So far, you've been wrong on all counts:

    Sprint has not felt the effects of WNLP
    They no longer have the worst customer service
    ATT has come out as the first buyout candidate, not Sprint
    Sprint financial performance for the 4th quarter has not gone into the
    toilet
    Sprint churn did not sky rocket- but I'l bet ATT's did

    All of your rantings over the last six months have proved what we've been
    saying all along- you have no clue about anything to do with cellular. And
    everytime I read another real horror story on the ATT group, I do laugh my
    ass off. You switched to a provider that makes Sprint look like the model
    of efficiency and customer service (I know they're not, but ATT is much
    worse). Someone who spouted so much crap here for all those months probably
    should have done his homework.

    Still stung by the failed short of PCS stock? Your attempt at rumor
    starting failed once, don't screw yourself again.

    BTW ... all the posts and online reviews I have seen lately show that
    AT&T Wireless fails in coverage (GSM only) and customer service
    (especially considering porting). How is the stint with your new
    provider going?

    I think most of the stuff Consumer Report puts out is dead on. Sprint
    just doesn't know how to take care of customers. They have developed
    a bad rap because they hire stupid people to work for them who
    straight out lie to good customers. CR just backs up my personal
    feelings, Sprint screwed me over, lied to me, had me deal with morons
    and wasted my time.

    Yeah, but if CS was actually any good it still wouldn't give you a bad
    survey. All sending it out via email would do is skew it toward affluent
    families and 100,000 is not awful. You only need 10 Sprint subscribers
    to know that CS is awful there. I don't see how this would skew Sprint's
    CS anyway.

    Sprints CS IS the worst. AT&T's has recently gotten as bad, but please
    remember that Sprint's CS has always been awful (in fact, it has
    improved a little bit over the years, from say 3 years ago, from like an
    F to a D-). In contrast AT&T's only recently got bad. So I think if
    someone called and surveyed me (and I have had both Sprint and AT&T for
    a long time) I would probably say Sprint is worse, even though right at
    this instant in time AT&T is worse, in part because of the poorly
    handled transition to GSM.

    Also, the "let's make a deal" attitude at Sprint CSR and various
    promises people make on the phone doesn't win them any friends either.
    AT&T did not used to do this but recently started and I am sure this is
    annoying customers too.

    Actually Sprints CS is SO BAD, I can't think of another company or
    organization that is as bad. For example, the customer service at the
    DMV or electric company is better and they are truly awful.

    Because its not the worst NOW. It was, but the intelligent tend to live in
    the present, not the past.

    Poor GSM transition, a continuous stream of serious billing software issues
    since October, hold times measured in hours and the portability black hole
    of the universe. These are just a few of the MAJOR issues mentioned by ATT
    customers in the last three months, and this does not appear to be a
    temporary set of circumstances- in fact, things are getting worse, not
    better.

    So again, ATT is doing something that makes Sprint bad in your eyes.
    Doesn't that make them just as bad?

    Try ATT, if you can get someone to answer the phone.

    How did you arrive at this conclusion? From what I saw AT&T was ranked
    last in more markets than Sprint was.

    Of course, you probably had to swerve 47 times before it happened. You
    probably also have incriminating video tape of techs cheering when you
    finally manage to flip the phone open.
