Sprint really shouldn't do that... Clearwire already screwed up with the WiMAX network... they don't deserve another chance.

And there goes any chance Sprint had at improving. Clearwire is nothing but a deadweight.

So what is Print supposed to do for its customers who purchased WiMax-enabled devices? Give them the middle-fingered wave? Tell them to go to VZW? Or?

Why not? They've already done so with their other bs policy changes. No one told Sprint to stupidly go the WiMAX route with a company so deep in the hole. It's not like Sprint is doing anything else with WiMAX, might as well let the deadweight go so they can go to LTE, something the fools should've done in the first place.
Verizon sucks, but I have to give them credit for their aggressive LTE expansion. That's what Sprint should've done. How ironic that they were the first ones to get "assumed" 4G and yet are in last place with it. Even AT&T and T-Mobile have HPSA+ or whatever the hell it is. AT&T is about to get LTE now.

Correction... Sprint. The edit function of PA doesn't seem to work on an iPad with iOS v. 5 :-(

Sprint....always finding new ways of proving they are all about F A I L.

they didnt "change their mind" as much as "continue supporting existing and soon to be sold wimax sets for at least the next few years".
If they didnt extend the deal then everyone with Wimax sets right now would be very pissed off that they lost service.
