Yes, but anything uniting with Google should face an Antitrust lawsuit :D

Yes, I was, of course, joking :) But thanks for clearing it so that people like the "anonymous" guy get it too.

Google's making a huge mistake dealing with a sinking ship called Sprint, they should've partnered with Verizon instead.

You dont see verizon stepping up to the plate??? nights still at 9!!! thats was over and done with in the 90's. Verizon is still behind in the times there data is ok but they dont have phone as a modem sprint is just keeping up with the changing times dont see any walkie talkie servis yet from verizon??? they tried but fald badly! Sprint is going to get even bigger and be better then then verizon just look at the deal they made today with ClearWire. and Q chat comming out in less then a month. SPRINT GET ON IT!

Some of you guys that post on here really need to take some English lessons, or at least use a spell checker. Sprint has come a long way, they're voice and data service will surpass Verizon as long as the can get pass all these set backs. These partnership will definitely give them a hand. Also with the release of their new phones and cheaper plans. They will remain a top contender. Do some research and learn to blog with some proper English.

Only people that go to sprint are people with bad credit and can't get on verizon's network. Sprint will allow anybody into there network. The people that compain about verizon had a 400 dollar deposit.

Ha Ha! Well put. I think all customers bitch. I think Sprint is just getting desperate and is willing to pair up with any company at this point. If you ask me Verizon is waiting until Sprint is worth next to nothing and then will make an offer. It is the only likely company to do this. TMobile would be stupid to even think about purchasing Sprint. Think about the millions if not billions of dollars that they would have to invest in the network to get everyone on one system (GSM). Something that neither company has been good at so I dont feel it would be a good idea. Sure Verizon may have as what you would call them "ugly phones" but the numbers dont lie. They consistantly add more subscribers every quarter and have the lowest churn rate in the industry. Along with the best network out there. No one can argue with that. No one.

Sprint's partnering with Google is genius. Only the iPhone and Helio Ocean offer the best experience with youtube. Now Sprint will be able to offer it on most phones currently in stock and if not all, then most of the news ones coming out. With the arrival of the Instinct, the Raphael, and Diamond, as well as the arrival of WiMax, Sprint is on the rise. New CEO Dan Hess has made cust svc his #1 priority as well. Sprint may well be the #2 carrier by the end of next year!!

I totally agree,with the qChat, instinct, future devices coming to us, why do you think alot of big phone compnays want there phones with sprint cuz they know they can bank with us. VZW is just a big company. And yea tot he person who says people with bad credit go with sprint is untrue.I have kinda sorta bad credit. I got approved 3 lines no deposit for vzw. But i just chose sprint cuz of there speeds and network.
