    Sprint…how about announcing some new phones for a change?  It’s like you went to sleep after getting the iPhone. 

    You’re lineup’s getting stale compared to Verizon and ATT.  Are your protecting your iPhone sales from new competitors, since you doubled down with Apple to purchase a gazillion in the next 5 years?  If your customers want an iPhone, they’ll get one.  If you’re afraid of customers choosing a different device, limiting your offerings will only steer them to your competition. 

    I’ve been a Sprint customer for 4 years.  Now, I’m ready to upgrade 4 phones, but the other guys are offering a lot more choices…and reasons to jump ship.  I signed up for Sprint News and Updates in the fall, anxiously waiting for some new phone choices.  But since getting the iPhone, you seem to only be introducing low-end phones…or current phones in white.  C’mon already!
