Might want to brush up on some news most all chips in the last few years support many bands even Sprint unless your not up to date on the Clearwire days even then there was chips but not enough devices to kept CLWR afloat .....
Since that time frame about all newer devices have chips that Sprint uses .. Recall a few years back when Apple released phones to Sprint ? all it took was a agreement to use their brand the Chip was there...There are no more one carrier agreements like the old Apple and Verizon setup where if you wanted a Apple Phone you had to go to Verizon..
Wake up and smell the Roses or your going to go Broke
speculation ?....I feel share price has increased do to the News of major build outs and customer churn adding more sign ups and Lower Customer Prices not to mention the next Quarter Release most likely showing some improvements as the past ones..
One may want to read just what AMP does and it's products before passing judgement on to Sprint. I found that there could be many parts of that company that could improve Sprint in the future and I take it as another Back Door approach in helping Sprint much like Son buying 49% of the CEO Phone biz. and Clearwires 2.5 Spectrum that other counties around the Globe build on that are far more advanced then the U.S. when it comes to Wireless Tech and Phone speeds along with coverage.
Yes folks all this info is all there you only need to seek it out on a search engine.
ARM technology is used in 95 percent of smartphones and 80 percent of digital cameras, according to the company. Augmented-reality headsets, biometric sensors, self-driving cars, commercial drones and smart watches all use ARM technology.
CONS / Despite operating on AT&T’s excellent network, Cricket customers have their LTE speeds artificially capped at 8 Mbps.

All carriers have a clause on Data so what is your point ?.
Sprint still beats most carriers and the Price is Right with Sprint.. Not to mention all things in Life have their Limits....
I am willing to bet a Quarter Release that far ahead of the open market has to have some good numbers to throw at the Share Holders . I think it may be time for Sprint to go press with maybe another partnership or more info on the present ones that have been kept under raps for the past few years....
I think the Five and Dime players are in for trouble taken pennies here and there that they call Profits.. Once again I feel very Lucky I stayed Long and waited the future out..
the money is made in Public Shares..
Higher the shares go in price the more $$$ are to be made not only what Son is holding but also in Share Options in stead of just Cash Bonus.... other wise Softbank and all their companies would have been Private. Keep in mind Nobody owns Spectrum only the rights to use it so that is the stopping point
I agree with your thoughts but Sprint has seen nothing of that $20 billion yet but I am thinking along the lines Softbank may use it in a Newly Formed Company and pick up on Sprints Debt or some of it anyways and have Sprint issue to Son shares to cover it.....
Seems to me all this New companies Softbank has formed to help Sprint in one way or the other such as cash infusion or a way to reduce cost has helped the share price and seems to be holding to a point.
How what could really Slam Dunk this stock would be Son forming a company that would take over Sprints Debt and give Sprint a much lower rate . There is a reason for this $20 Billion that Son has just raised selling off other sections of the company but nothing dealing with Sprint.. Makes a person wonder
could this cash be put to use in two ways ? ..
(1) it could be use to pay down or take over Sprints Debt and the shares would climb over night once it hits a press release.
(2) it could be used to buy more Spectrum in the newly formed Softbank company that bought Spectrum from Sprint then leases that same Spectrum back to Sprint as a cost reduction and a cash infusion all at the same time.Sprint may not have entered this Spectrum auction but maybe the newly formed company did..
My guess son will use it in some form to prove sprint will be Softbanks Cash Cow much sooner then later.
seems Sprint is holding nicely.. Now if Softbank was to pick up on some if not all of Sprints Debt with nothing to lose a lonely Debt Holder it would all fall into his hands very nicely
no advantage to go private or all of Softbanks companies would have done it..public shares gives a company cash to work with this is others cash rather then their own ..
Sprint it time will be the Cash Cow Son was talking about and as shares climb say $10/$15/$20 or more a share Son will have made a bundle and they could always issue more shares at that point to meet the Demand..
Son has taken every step to reduce any cost that sprint may have had such as Spectrum and Tower leases. Phones they have sold or lease to customers in the past .
Spectrum and a lease back program not only to Sprint but other companies and put it all under one Roof and that roof being SoftBank.
Now what would happen if Softbank was to take that $20 billion or more they got for selling off other parts of their company was to do another Start Up and pick up on Sprints debt and gave Sprint a much lower rate or No Rate at all that would lead to even more cost reduction..Son stated Sprint will be a Cash Cow and driving the share Price all the way up to the other three carriers would be Major Wind fall for Son / Softbank not to mention Sprint or Sprints share holders..
Now I know many will laugh this off but really what has Softbank got to lose ?. they carry the Debt or Sprint carries it . Son I believes sees Sprint being much better off holding little to no Debt on their books and major investors and future Partners would see that also..
Sprints Not For Sale !!! My guess is the capital from Softbank gets from selling shares of other companies just may be use towards Sprints Debt even to the point where it could be Debt Free and the Cash cow Son talks about so many times..
Should that happen along with any other Major Play such as any Partnerships with more Major Players Sprint shares would Rock or over night
Sounds more of a joke to me .....when you break it down say $40 a share over 12 months would be in the area of $3 off a monthly bill that is until you was to sell it and pay the gift tax along with any other tax since it was not a cost to you..So what Pinky is seems to be doing is paying you $40 in funny money to remain a customer..
Now that is a Dumb statement cause it goes for all carries...
Face the facts the Turn around has come a long way ... 1% less then the two major plays and T isn't even mention and that 50% lower Plan sprint has over the carries puts them even closer.
So what if all this Capital Softbank is getting from the selling of shares of other companies would be put to Sprint Debt it could very well become the Cash cow Son was talking about.
