    I am able to upload pics with the gplus app from the store it just loads my feed out of order and not all the posts I see are completely there. I.E. I may see a post where I can read a persons words but the attached picture wont show up. Where as in the mobile browser the posts show up just fine but are completely out of order.

    Unfortunately, he probably will never get Windows 10 Mobile on a Sprint branded HTC 8xt.
    Blimey. Every other post slates Sprint. How the hell do they maintain a customer base? Or do they favour the Sheep OS's???? We don't tend to suffer this in UK.

    Sprint is the last major carrier over here to offer unlimited data that's not throttled at no extra charge. The other carriers have done away with it unless you pay extra or are grandfathered in from an old data plan. And on other carriers if you upgrade your device with a new 2yr contract and don't pay the full price for your phone, you lose your unlimited data unless you want to pay an extra $20 a month.
    So with sprint it's all about unlimited data, cheaper devices and cheaper monthly bills. Basically, sprint users are a bunch of tight wads, including me.
    Unfortunately sprint doesn't support windows phone very well. As of right now there isn't a single brand new windows phone out there for sale anywhere for sprint that I know of. None of the ones on the MS website will work on them because sprint is a cdma network. And the last windows phone they offered was the 635, or maybe the m8, I'm not sure. I just started checking windows phone out about a month ago.

    Living overseas as I do now really reinforces what a freaked up system the US has (contracted phones). It stacks the deck totally in favor of the carriers and leaves the poor consumer to accept whatever is offered. A $100/month cell/mobile bill is just crazy. Prepaid is the only way to go now in the U.S.

    How much data do you get on that cricket plan? Or at what point do they throttle you?

    2.5GB high speed data a month before it falls to EDGE. Mind you they cap LTE at 8mbps and no tethering without a $10/month fee for each line used as a tether.

    Normally the plan is $40 a month, but each line bundled after the first saves. Line 2 is -$10, Line 3 is -$20 and the 4th line is -$30.

    So 4 x $40 =$160 - the $60 savings = $100 / 4 lines = $25 per line. Each line gets ts own 2.5GB high speed and unlimited everything. Technically I can get a 5th line free, but don't have a 5th person to put on there. That would be $20 a line for a family of five. https://www.cricketwireless.com/cell-phone-plans

    If it is just you and you need more data, try Straight Talk $45 a month gets you 5GB high speed data and unlimited everything. 5GB if you BYOD that is. With auto pay it is $42.50 a month. https://www.straighttalk.com/wps/por...p/serviceplans

    No, I've got 4 lines too. Still got a year with sprint though, but that's some good info to have.
