Sprint now lets prepaid carriers remove Sprint branding and bloat from phones

I'd say it's cool. If this gets us closer to seeing phones like the Optimus G, Galaxy S III or EVO 4G LTE on Virgin/Boost/etc., I'm all for it. This could be a big win for Sprint's prepaid subsidies. I just got myself the S II on Virgin, and I'll be kicking myself if an even better phone shows up there in a couple months. :p

Wow, never realized how many MVNOs Sprint has. Maybe that's why their network isn't the best it can be. Boost and Virgin is enough, IMO.

You would be surprised at how many MVNO's are out here. All of the big 4 carriers whore out their networks, Sprint just has some of the more well known MVNO's of which Virgin Mobile and Boost are the only ones actually owned by Sprint.
BTW, the Network Vision upgrades Sprint is doing take into account MVNO load on the network, that's why they are over-engineering the project to be robust and support the added traffic.
