    While Sprint appears to have scored a victory with the bands in the new iPhones, other carriers were not as lucky. The new phones do not appear to support LTE Band 12, or 700 MHz A Block Band Class 12. The phones support LTE Band 13 (700 MHz Upper C Block MHz) and LTE Band 17 (700 MHz Lower B...

    Masa Som.... Does Sprint provide the services Dish currently lacks, per below ?
    The firm notes the drawback of Dish Network being only a pay television company due to its satellite dish format, while wired pay television providers can offer a host of other options such as Internet and phone services.

    Sprint is also working with Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) to accelerate the launch of devices that can take advantage of three-carrier carrier aggregation on its 2.5 GHz TD-LTE service. Those devices will come to market in the first half of 2015. Sprint plans to deploy three-carrier carrier aggregation on its network by the end of 2015, producing peak speeds of 150-180 Mbps.

    While Sprint appears to have scored a victory with the bands in the new iPhones, other carriers were not as lucky. The new phones do not appear to support LTE Band 12, or 700 MHz A Block Band Class 12. The phones support LTE Band 13 (700 MHz Upper C Block MHz) and LTE Band 17 (700 MHz Lower B Block), which are used by Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T Mobility (NYSE: T), respectively, for their primary LTE services.

    A number of other wireless carriers like T-Mobile US (NYSE:TMUS), C Spire Wireless and U.S. Cellular (NYSE:USM) own 700 MHz Band 12 spectrum. A spokeswoman for the Competitive Carriers Association, which represents smaller carriers, did not immediately have a comment on the situation, and an Apple spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Sprint has said it will add 700 MHz Band 12 capabilities to some of its devices starting next year. Further, AT&T has agreed to support 700 MHz Band 12 as part of the FCC's 700 MHz interoperability agreement announced last year, but it does not appear that the agreement swayed Apple to include Band 12 support

    Sprint (NYSE:S) MVNO TextNow, a no-contract service from Waterloo, Ont.-based startup Enflick, announced the launch of its new prepaid brand Touch Mobile. Touch Mobile is aimed at expanding the company's services into the prepaid space via low-cost, Wi-Fi-first service plans and inexpensive handsets.

    TextNow started in 2009 as an over-the-top messaging service, similar to WhatsApp, and lets users send and receive unlimited text messages within the United States and Canada free of charge. The company offers customers a dedicated TextNow phone number, and because the service is cloud-based, users can use that number on their phones, tablets or the web to sync messages. TextNow launched as an app, and expanded into the MVNO business last year by offering handsets under a no-contract model with service from Sprint.

    Now, the company is branching into the prepaid space with Touch Mobile, which offers many of the same prices and services as TextNow and runs over the Sprint network. Specifically, Touch Mobile offers service on three specialized handsets, the WiMAX-powered Samsung Galaxy S2 and the LTE-powered Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Victory. Prices for the phones will be set by independent retailers, but will range between $100 and $250.

    It is not triband.

  • Hey Marcelo....nice moves...

    Sprint Corp. (S) introduced an “iPhone for Life” plan that lets customers get a new version of Apple Inc.’s smartphone every two years for $70 a month.

    The service also includes unlimited data, Sprint said today on its website. Customers make no initial payment for the phone or related taxes on the device because they are essentially renting it, the company said.

    Chief Executive Officer Marcelo Claure said today in an interview, is counting on the new iPhone 6 to help Sprint start adding subscribers again after a seven-year streak of customer losses. By tying promotions to Apple’s device, Sprint is following in the footsteps of controlling shareholder SoftBank Corp., which used an exclusive iPhone deal to gain market share in Japan.

    Sprint is up against steep promotions from its competitors, which are clamoring to use the iPhone 6 to drive customer growth. Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) is offering an iPhone 6 for free to customers who trade in older models and sign up for a new two-year contract. The offer comes in the form of a $200 gift card that can be applied to the regular $199.99 price for the basic 16-gigabyte version of the device, Verizon said on its website today.

    Earlier this week, Sprint said it would match other wireless companies’ deals for smartphone trade-ins, similar to an offer that smaller rival T-Mobile US Inc. announced the same day. The trade-in campaigns are designs to lure customers who want to upgrade for the new iPhone 6.

    New Phones

    Apple unveiled today the iPhone 6 and its larger cousin, the iPhone 6 Plus, which have screen sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. The devices have rounded edges and a thinner frame than earlier models, as well as higher-resolution displays.

    With a traditional two-year wireless contract, the iPhone 6 costs $199 to $399, while the 6 Plus is priced at $299 to $499. The devices will come in silver, gold and space gray.

  • Sprint (NYSE:S) stock has taken a beating in recent weeks. The plans to merge with T-Mobile were scrapped and investors did the same to the stock. The stock dropped 18.96% on the 6th of August. Since that drop the stock has continued to lose another 6.10%. The stock has not seen lows like this since January of 2013 when it hit a low of $5.53, that doesn't even match the low of $5.39 that the stock hit on August 19, 2014 on the bad news. To say the least it has not been a positive time to be an owner of Sprint. My question arises from this recent thrashing of the stock. Does the current drop make it a good time to buy Sprint?

    Market Cap and Revenue

    The beating of the stock price has brought the market cap down to $22.5 billion. The revenue from the past 4 quarters was $34.55 billion. This leaves the price to sales ratio at .65. A very low price/sales ratio compared to the industry.
    did some basic ratio analysis to compare the stock price of Sprint using the price/sales ratios of its competitors.

    If we take the revenue per share of Sprint and times it by the price/sales ratio of the competitors we come to the equivalent stock price. As the range shows the price should be anywhere from $7.81-14.65 when compared on an equal price/sales ratio. We can even go on to say that we think a company should be worth at least as much as its annual revenue in a year. If we do the following to Sprint we get the following:



    Sprint

    3,945,492,794

    34,555,000,000.00

    34,555,000,000

    8.76


    The annual revenues of $34.55 billion leave us with a stock price of $8.76. A 55.29% increase of what it currently is valued at.

    Now of course this is not to say that the stock price should be just that. Ther

  • Marcelo on a roll....

    Sprint thinks the new iPhone 6 is a special device, so it’s offering a $50 unlimited plan not available to its other smartphone customers and creating a new “iPhone for life” trade-in program that will put the newest iPhone in customers’ hands every two years.

    The new unlimited data, talk and text plan is a further discount over the new $60 a month unlimited smartphone plans introduced last month, right after new CEO Marcelo Claure took over. The iPhone for life plan, however, presents an additional opportunity for customers to save on device costs, though they’ll technically be renting the devices, not buying them.

    For $20 a month, customers can get a 16 GB iPhone 6 on Sept. 19, which they can trade in 24 months from now for whatever new generation iPhone Apple releases at the time. That winds up being $480 in device payments. Customers who want to buy the phone can finance it over two years for $30 a month after a $58 down payment, or they can sign a two-year contract and pay only $20.

    But contract phones come with a hefty monthly price tag: $85 for the service plan, which is frankly a ripoff. At that rate you’ll wind up paying $1,040 for the phone over two years compared to the other offers.

    Since its planned merger with T-Mobile bombed, Sprint has become a much more feisty competitor, and it’s obviously taking advantage of this major device launch to show up the other operators. Of course, the other operators still have plenty of time to chime in with their own promotional offers before the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus go on sale.

    But this is probably the right iPhone for Sprint to go crazy with. It’s the first iOS device that supports Sprint’s new Spark network.
