Serouisly sprint what the **** is wrong with you. Almost every carrier is bringing a windows phone to their portfolio and even us cellular is doin it. Maybe even cricket and metropc will bring it as well since they are currently checking it out and seeing the sales. Which will be pretty big with all the support.. I bet you sprint you will be a fail carrier when windows phone becomes dramatically popular with the three screens. Always last carrier of the big 4. Ok guys do you think sprint will ever bring a windows phone smartphone or they can't be f*********ked at all. Your answer

I imagine that Sprint is a little low on cash after buying the rights to the iPhone and aren't willing to bet on Windows Phone bringing them any more money. That could be why they are on the record as waiting to see how it does.
I also think that since they are so late to the game with the iPhone that it's paying off their debt for it as we quick as they were hoping for.

I used to be upset about Sprint not getting any new Windows Phones, but now I see it as a good thing. Their data service sucks and this gives me another reason to jump ship.
Even straight up EVDO speeds should transfer plenty fast but it's slower than 56k because network latency is in the 1 or more seconds sometimes!
I'm gonna end up with a Surface Pro early next year so I may end up keeping the Arrive since it does everything I want and apps that aren't out for WP7.8 will likely be available for the W8 tablets.

I'm sure Sprint will get a model or 2. Unless they were dumb and not giving customers a choice.
Even though they didn't say they were going to support it they will get at least one model to see how it does.
I'm with Verizon and I am glad they claim to support it. My Trophy is a nice phone but, not that high end touch I am looking for. I wont get it with WP7, I will have to wait till WP8...XV6700(Apache)>XV6800->HTC Touch Pro 2(XV6875) ->HTC Trophy ->VZW HTC 8X ->Nokia Lumia 928 -> Nokia Lumia ICON (929)
