    How many companies would you like me to list that consistently lost money

    True, but not the 25% you keep throwing around.

    But they added customers, didn't they?

    This from a guy that can't answer any questions about the industry- great
    source of info.

    Pretty big words from someone who NEVER listens to the other side.

    I don't pay anything to Sprint, and I don't intimidate- I ask questions you
    are too ignorant to answer.

    I still don't know what all of this is about but I can tell you that I
    did not take a trip to Mexico in 2000. I started posting on this usenet
    forum in 2001 so anything before then was not from me.

    You keep forgetting that they offer data speed and coverage that NONE

    travelled quite a bit for years and have only had one roaming call.)

    Can I get unlimited data over my phone, whether it's used as a display

    carrier?

    Thats not what Wall Street is saying. Don't confuse money losing
    SprintPCS (PCS) with better capitalized Sprint (FON). The fact that
    Vision is so cheap is a minus, not a plus.

    Well, that happens when you spend more than you bring in ... SPCS is still a

    Uhhh, they all have high churn rates.

    Ahh, but they did add customers this last quarter ... didn't they?.

    Oh? Did they drop their place in the order of size of cellular system

    Totally bogus Phillipe. That was talk about LD & not wireless. What's more,
    Bell South dropped the offer.

    You are so full of ****, your eyes are brown Phillipe ... CS has improved,
    as reported here, and you still haven't proved calls can not go longer than
    6 minutes ...

    You did not predict a ****ing thing you moron, you posted a link to a
    web site and made a comment about it. Can you explain how you had
    anything to do with that web sites prediction? Are you saying you
    work at thestreet.com and you had something to do with that article?

    Here is a perfect example of you taking inital misinformation and
    running with it. Besides your obvious ****up about the ip address for
    Sprintusers.com (which you have yet to acknowledge), does someone
    really have to point out to you that there maybe more then one Larry
    or Larry Thomas in the US? Or the simple fact that many people use
    fake names on usenet and online? I've used many fictisious names over
    the years for usenet, registering software, posting questions in blogs
    etc.. Only you would take some half baked idea and make it a fact.

    You are getting more and more desperate.
    The first step in fixing a problem is admitting a problem exists. The
    only person who has yet to see your problem is yourself.

    Thank you.

    I assure everyone that I have never posted anything over Usenet prior
    to late 2001. I have never used an alias or changed my ID. I have not
    taken any trips to Mexico either. It's pretty amusing that old Phil has
    resorted to this personal attack on me to try to cover up his own
    stupidity.

    I apologize Larry. I am trying to cover up that fact that I am in love
    with you and that you are so much more intelligent than I could ever
    hope to be. I take trips to Mexico all the time... I don't see what's
    wrong with it. I would go, but that would require me getting up off my
    knees.

    Signed,
    Phillipe

    Sorry, you'll forever be labeled as a Mexico apologist. Every "Larry
    Thomas", pseudonym (sp?) or not, its you.

    (Note: Sarcasm)

    > actually help a user.*


    Stretching words again? We had a call center person here stating the
    AVERAGE call time was 6 minutes, and if they were really helping
    customers, the supervisors didn't mind them going over. Do us all a
    favor. Sit down with a stop watch and time 6 minutes. You'll see how
    long that is. Now, most calls to call centers are "what's my balance",
    "how many minutes do I have left?", "Where can I make a payment", and
    countless other questions that it takes longer to pull up the account
    than it does to answer the question.

    Now, say you handle 5 calls, for your *AVERAGE* call time to be under 6
    minutes, the total would be under 30 minutes.

    Call one, what's my balance? - 2 minutes
    Call two, Can you flag my account for a PRL update - 2 minutes
    Call three, Where is a SprintPCS store near me? - 4 minutes
    Call four - When does my biloing cycle end? - 2 minutes

    (assuming they round UP to the nearest minute, but the numbers would be
    lower if it was by the second)

    OK, so we're at 10 minutes now, 4 calls done. (Call center clocks are
    times from when you answer the phone to when you hang up, the rep can
    note the account when they're off the phone).

    That leaves call #5. What will it bo? To stay under the 6 minute
    *AVERAGE* call time, that call can be up to 19 minutes long. Pretty
    long time to take care of someone if they need it (and if you think
    not, take your stopwatch again and time 19 minutes).

    There is a HUGE difference between *average* call time and *max* call
    time. We've had an admission from a call center rep that it is
    *average*.

    As for Sprint PCS's stock "Crashing" why has it been going back up? My
    401K company match is either in FON or PCS stock. Since PCS is low
    right now, I've upped the percentage into PCS. Also, when it was very
    low, I put more of my own contribution into PCS stock (bought between
    $2.91 - $3.50 per share) and then I sold enough at $5.50 per share to
    get out what I put in, and the rest is profit to me. Sure, it's gone
    down, so I upped my contribution into PCS again a little.

    Actually, I'm more puzzled by why you gloat so much any time there is
    bad news about Sprint. I can't figure it out. It's just a friggin' cell
    phone company, fer cryin' out loud. If its service deteriorates or its
    prices rise to the point where I no longer consider it to be a good
    deal, I'll switch carriers--particularly after number portability goes
    into effect later this month. You rant about "Sprint apologists," but
    you're the one around here who seems the most emotionally invested in
    Sprint PCS--only in a negative way, so that you love it when something
    bad happens. Very curious that. Perhaps you should consider getting a
    life.
