Whoa ... nice change to your newsreader there Eric ... Makes it a whole lot
easier to reply to your posts ... :)

Eric, so far, it hasn't been confirmed by any official source (Sprint or
financial reporters) whether SPCS is a winner or a loser with regards to
WLNP.

Yeah I know. I was just polling people to see what Sprint could do to
secure them a winning position in the future... one in which they could
commend themselves on without a shadow of a doubt.

The churn was up, They lost 1,400,000 customers in Q1 2004; and they
declined to post the data in the Public Press Releases.

It's pretty obvious they're a loser to anyone without rose colored
glasses.

But it didnt stop Sprint from issuing 39,700,000 shares of stock to
Grant to Executives. (check their May 19, 2004 SEC filing).

No- their churn increase was in line with some of the industry leaders, and
better than a year ago. To the entire population of the world minus one
(that would be you), they have been very successful over the last year in
improving all metrics.

You stating that they are a WLNP loser is vaporfact.

You didn't read very much of the filing, did you? The filings on the 19th
are amendments to previously filed registrations that dealt with PCS stock.
The amendments were filed to convert those registrations to FON stock. One
of the registrations was for the Employee Stock Purchase Program, which is
open to all employees. And if you had read further, you would have also
recognized that many of the executive shares mentioned are being offered as
options, not ouright gifts. This is not the cash cow you are projecting it
to be.

SprintPCS should emphasize their 7 PM nights, and their excellent system
of tracking minutes used. They need some attention grabbing promotion
like free photomail for 6 months.

Sprint has lost its position as a value leader with the recent price
increases, add-on freebie decreases, and now mandatory Vision. It still
has the (mistaken?) perception of having poor coverage, and the correct
perception of poor customer service.

The public perception is that Verizon has best Network, best Customer
Service, and T-Mobile is the value leader. At a local Sam's last weekend
they had the Sony T-610 for T-Mobile for free after rebate.

I suspect Sprint thinks its going to make a fortune out of wholesaling
their network to AT&T; and maybe they will, or maybe Bell South with
gobble up AT&T (at a current 52 week low in stock price), and since Bell
South has 40% of Ciongular, it has no need to use Sprint's PCS network.

You still haven't shown anything to back up Phillipe ... Why? Why don't you
want to prove you are right? Don't you want to prove your point?

What are you, a communist? And no, that;s not an insult, but an inquiry.
Every corporation offers that to their top dogs to keep them with the
company. It's called an incentive to stay with the company ...

Churn was *down* by any measure an objective observer uses, Phill:
year over year.

And Verizon lost more than half a million more customers in the same
time period. Says a lot more about the validity of your argument,
though, than about Verizon.

That's generally because it makes no sense to post something that isn't
true:

http://tinyurl.com/2wb5h

"The PCS Wireless division reported strong financial results and added
972,000 customers, consisting of 414,000 net direction customer
additions combined with 558,000 from wholesale and affiliate partners."

I don't know, philly. 1.4 million net lost customers is a little off
the mark from the reported net gain of 972,000.

And what color are your glasses behind those blinders you've got on,
Phillipe? AT&T-Wireless Blue? :)
