Sprint introduces Framily Wall apps & social network
Following the announcement of its 30 day risk-free trial programme, Sprint has introduced Framily Wall, a "private and secure social media space for customers to connect with those who matter most". This makes the nation's third largest carrier the first to "provide a social media space for consumers". 

Launching soon for Android, and heading to iOS, Windows Phone, and the web, Sprint Framily Wall features the ability to share content with one or several members of your Wall, organize calendars and contacts, keep "best memories" in a shareable album, share phone locations, and more. Taking a page from the Google+ playbook, SFW lets users create multiple "private Walls" to communicate with separate groups of contacts, with each being separate and private.

SFW also has a premium version available for a $2.99 monthly subscription. This gets you up to 10GB of storage (the free version is limited to 100MB), video and voice messaging, upload, and sharing.

John LegereThe app is available regardless of which carrier you're on. Thus, we wonder whether T-Mobile's John Legere will be giving it a shot...

What's the point of this sprint? When I was with them I couldn't even get a video or a picture to load up from Google+ the network was so danm slow that it would be loading one pictures for 3 minutes just to view it so I ask what's the point of offering something if your customers can only use it while being on wifi!

I actually think this is a good idea. I'm not on that plan. But I see this for a family who is not immersed into phones like we are and see it as an easy way to share things. Not everybody has FB or wants one. This way a group of 10 people can share things only among themselves. This would be good for people who are just starting out with smart phones. I know this would be great for my parents who don't want to spend more than 30 seconds to learn how to do something. And they certainly aren't going to sign up for Drop Box or other services. It's good to see Sprint trying out new things. Yes their 3G network stinks, hopefully it improves as more people move onto 4G. You can slam Sprint all you want, but this is something new. In the meantime AT&T and Verizon are doing what? Same old same old.

It is a good idea, but it is WAYYYYYYYYYYYY to late. Facebook is so ubiquitous now that this will just end up a way for Sprint to burn more money off. It's good that it doesnt require you to have Sprint to use, but the private sharing features are something EASILY doable on Facebook or Google +.
