    Word has gotten to me about a "protest" at an undisclosed location.

    The sad part is that no one, employees, corporate, the police, can
    figure out exactly what the message was supposed to be.

    I am posting this on some forums to see if anyone has answers about
    this, maybe one of the protesters are on here (a long shot, I know).
    All I want to know is, "What was the message supposed to be?".

    So I will know that any responders are real (and not people making up
    stories), all I will say about the protest is that it involved a
    clothesline (among other things).

    You'll have to get the location AND the setup correctly for me to take a
    response correctly.

    No one can act on a protest if they don't know what the message is (sad,
    but true). If we get the message, then maybe someone will take it into
    consideration in the future.

    Please feel free to respond to this thread, PM, or email me what you
    did. I will not call the police, corporate, or anything like that
    (you're in the clear), they would just like to know what the message
    was.

    Thank you.

    increases.

    I doubt that is it, and I couldn't find anyhting in the news involving
    what was involved.

    Also, the Verizon wireless and Cingular (partner with Bell South) would
    have also gotten the protest.

    Not only that, the 'protest' would not have involved what it did.

    (And also, there were no people, just something was set up in front of
    the store over night)

    Re: Sprint PCS Protest?

    All I know is Sprint POS is the worst.

    1) Dropped calls regularly.

    2) Terrible coverage. My wifes ancient Nokia 8260 get FAR superior
    coverage.

    3) BS "takes" that aren't really taxes at all. The scam is that there
    are goverenment fees for doing business that Sprint claims it's passing
    onto the consumer. What they don't tell you is that they're not really
    taxes at all and that Sprint is grossly inflating what they charge and
    is really just a sneaky way for Sprint to gouge thier customers for
    profit above what the contract terms are.

    Many consumer advocacy groups have pointed out that Sprint is grosly
    inflating the fee it charges it's consumers.

    4) Terrible CS. Sprint ranks at the bottom in studies done by groups
    such as Consumer Reports.

    5) Terrible billing headaches. Sprint's billing policies combined with
    inadequatly informed/trained CS regularly has the result of adding
    mistaken fees which can only be disputed by more calls to incompetant
    CS, and ly resolved (if you're lucky) in future billing cycles which
    means a customer has to continue paying Sprint POS for bad service just
    to have they fix their prior billing mistakes, while hoping they don't
    make any more of course!

    STAY AWAY FROM SPRINT P.O.S. !!

    Look a Sprint POS apologist. What a surprise. Employee perhaps?

    But anyone who doubts this whole "his word against mine" crap can simply
    stroll over to Consumer Reports to see that Sprint ranks on the bottom.
    Or Google for customuer satisfaction studies from other major
    publications to see thay all rank Sprint POS at the bottom.

    But of course that makes me a "troll" becasue any unhappy Sprint
    customer is automatically a "troll" as any Sprint employee will be happy
    to tell you.

    Btw: that is exactly the attitude one can expect from Sprint POS
    untrained and unhappy sounding CS if you call them.

    It's always amazing to me how some people in business are so shoddy they
    make no connection between what they personally expect from customer
    service and what they provide to their customers.

    What a company of A-holes!

    All I know is that the guy must have some time on his hands. He just
    shows up out of nowhere and posts four *very* long posts on the same day
    which all say about the same thing.

    I read his initial postings and it does sound like Sprint gave him the
    shaft. But why someone would come in and post such long, drawn out
    stories is certainly puzzling. If he is not happy with how Sprint is
    handling his billing problems, then file a formal complaint. Coming
    into a Sprint newsgroup and thrashing everyone in here who seeks more
    information about his story doesn't help anyone. If he is rid of
    Sprint, or is going to be rid of Sprint, than wouldn't he try to focus
    his energies into finding a provider who suits his needs?

    Interesting use of the word "apologist" here.

    <<But of course that makes me a "troll" becasue any unhappy Sprint

    No, a troll is someone who repeatedly posts the same story in every
    thread even after everyone has already read it. Say it once, and that
    should be enough.

    Re: Sprint PCS Protest?

    It's real simple.

    I post occasionally to this forum.

    I can say from personal experience Sprint Sucks.

    People should know how badly they suck. I don't mind spreading the word
    when a company really sucks. I type quickly.

    Consumer Reports and others all say Sprint ranks the lowest i.e. it's
    not just my opinion that they suck, it's a widly held belief based on
    scientific study that they suck.

    Am I changing carrier, yes I already said that.

    Will I feel gratified if even one consumer reads this and goes to
    Consumer Reports or Googles to find other customer satisfactions studies
    to find out just how badly Sprint ucks and then thinks better before
    signing up with Sprint? Absolutly.

    All I'll gain from that is the gratification that someone didn't sign up
    with the lowest rated cellular carrier. I've read other people's reviews
    of services and had them save me trouble by pointing me to such reviews.
    So what goes around comes around and that is a large part of the purpose
    of this forum.

    In regards to your opinion on my posts: when you're paying me for them
    or advising other people considering paying me for them in the manner I
    paid Sprint for their service like otheres are considering doing, then
    I'll actually care about your critiques of my posts.

    In the meanwhile you might ask yourself why you're posting.

    If you think you know more about my experience than I do maybe then
    you'd have a reason to post. If you think that Consumer Reports and many
    others don't rate Sprint POS the lowest than maybe you'd have a reason
    to post.

    In the meanwhile..... post all you like, but it doesn't change the facts
    or have any relevance that I can figure out.

    I don't think anyone has claimed to know more about your experience than
    youself. But you are relying way too heavily on the Consumer Reports/JD
    Powers/etc. You had some really bad experiences with Sprint, but just
    because you did and they rate low... doesn't mean that *everyone* has
    had poor CS from Sprint... and anyone who posts otherwise isnt
    automatically an "apologist".

    I have had a mixed bag with customer service... good and bad --
    nothing to the extent that you have had however. But you just have to
    stay open that some people have had good CS experiences, and not to
    discredit them or write them off if they talk about it. I think that is
    fair, and at the same time, doesn't refute anything that you have said
    previously today. Just because Consumer Reports does a study and Sprint
    rates low, it doesn't mean that *everyone* agrees with the survey
    results (i.e. agrees with what the polls say). It is a crapshoot as
    someone put it, and everyone's CS encounter is unique to them.

    Yes ... very occasionally. Once in Dec, asking about a possible Vision
    outage, and mentioning you have an A500 - http://tinyurl.com/pij8
    Next, in a promotion plan cross thread in Sept.
    http://tinyurl.com/pijd

    And then you post today ... Funny thing is that in neither of the two
    above posts do you talk about dropped calls ... as you did in your
    original post today. You also didn't mention why you needed a
    different phone number, or how many minutes were in your plan.

    So, just because you talked a hellava lot with your SPCS phone this
    past month over your plan minutes ..., and didn't get your way in CS,
    you want to spend all this time talking about an incomplete report?

    Geez, you need to get a life ...

    Re: Sprint PCS Protest?

    Eric-

    Apparently you didn't read an earlier post i made about personal
    experiences (which are anecdotal and should be taken as such) and
    studies done scientifically.

    This may come as a shock to you, but two people can post opposite
    opinions of a carrier based on their personal experience and both be
    right. That is why it is reatrded for people like 'bob' to come on and
    say their opinion is more right becasue it is theirs.

    I never said that.

    What I did say is that I had a horrible experience which is supported by
    multiple scientific studies which is verifiable fact. Anyone who argues
    with that is just a goon who doesn't understand the above points and the
    difference between subjective and objective truth.

    Multiple studies done scientifically could all be wrong, but the odds
    are against it. If you don't understand that, I suggest you stay out of
    casinos and other places based on probability.

    The simple fact is this: no matter if a few or even several people here
    love Sprint more than life itself, studies confirm that my horrendous
    experience is more likely with Sprint than with any other carrier. That
    is fact based on the best present knowledge.

    In addition from personal experience I can offer opinion on why that may
    be, which is what I did.

    People who defend a carrier against the statistics based on ther
    persoanl experience or who are argumentative about my experience which I
    am obviosly the most qualified to talk about here; those people are
    either in Sprints employ or stupid and lacking some concepts such as
    those mentioned above and the concept of competative capitalism and how
    informed consumers are a necessary part of that.

    Ok bob,

    You seem to be completly retarded or at the least very confused. I've
    posted several times to various forums here much more recently than Dec.
    Never did I post that I have an A500.

    So basically your whole last post is completly idiotic.

    Apparently your searching and reading comprehension skills are on par
    with your quote posting skills.
