    You just have to laugh

    If you are trying to compare the sprint wireless network with Verizon, you should do a little more research. 4G LTE is the future of wireless, and sprint's network is not capable of 4G LTE service. Remember back when VCR's were the main form of recording? There were two technologies, VHS and BETA. VHS won out, and BETA disappeared. Well, in the battle between Sprint's WIMAX and Verizon's 4G LTE, Sprint will be the BETA of the battle. So a move from Sprint to Verizon is extremely bullish.

    • Jonny,

      You are right......wirless is fantastic...all you say fantastic........BUT............It has zero to do with RSH

      Not sure what your rant about Sprint or VZ is so I will try this again. It doesnt matter. RSH is not wireless carrier. They have no product. They are a reseller of products for these carriers.....nothing more. ALL WIRELESS CARRIERS LOSE MONEY ON THE PHONES.......Do you get this? They make the money on the airtime and offset the loss. RSH does not do this. They get tops 5-10 bucks per phone and when all is said and done it ended up to be a loss in the Sprint case. Go look at ATT/VZ/S earnings comments on the phones. They lose money hand over fist on the iphones and others. They are super happy to have the shack write these contracts for them. Its unclear what you do not understand about this buisness. the last VZ confrence call the CEO stated............HAVING A 3RD PARTY WRITE CONTRACTS AND OFFER PHONES HELPS vz BOTTOM LINE,

      WHY? Because this buisness is a loss. RSH hopes it will sell chargers and phone hook ups to offset the loss. I dont know about you but I never buy that extra garbage when I get my phone. It obvious no one did at the shack either. probably had better done alot more research before you bought into a company you didnt understand.
