Any word on Sprint service?

hi everyone

So far I have not heard when Sprint service will be restored.

Has anyone heard anything?

Is anyone still on Sprint and able to do anything beyond texting?

Or is a reboot/reprogram (or whatever it is called) needed?

Once things calm down, I am definitely switching to AT&T.

Switch to AT&T now! Sprint has abandoned the territory so all Sprint customers should abandon Sprint. You can buy cheap AT&T phones on ebay or have someone in the States get one for you and mail it Express.

I'm waiting on my AT&T phone to arrive in the mail.

Yeah I plan to just waiting for things to get a little more back to normal otherwise as there is too much going on right now.

I always got free phones with Sprint due to my excellent credit, so hopefully I can get a free one with AT&T. (I never got the latest phone free, but a model or two older than the current one, which was fine by me)

LOL. Right after Irma, the only cell service on the east end of St Thomas was Verizon and Virgin Mobile. Two companies that you never think of having a presence here.
