400k loss is just proof that unlimited data is not working. Time to change gears.

400k loss is largely contributed to the loss of Nextel customers that cancel because they are in areas that Nextel has good coverage, but Sprint does not.

Agreed about the loss of Nextel customers, they knew they wouldnt migrate all of the IDEN subscribers. We need to know how many post paid additions compared to post post paid losses and so on. They actually migrated more IDEN to CDMA then predicted. And as they free up the spectrum used by IDEN(850 ESMR band) they can repurpose it for CDMA and increase coverage and signal strength.

They recaptured 59% of iDen customers and moved them to CDMA. Here is a full break down: http://www.fiercewireless.com/press-releases/sprint-nextel-reports-third-quarter-2012-results

So it seems that plan to be such a seemingly strong iphone carrier isn't working all that well

No one except the sprint board is surprised.

Sprint has actually doing pretty good considering their predictament and have been overshadowed by it.
