A Sprint iPhone 5 on contract review

Feb 21st 2013 at 11:46 PM


I got a Sprint iPhone 5 on contract and then called sprint and told them that I needed to get the phone unlocked because i was going to travel to Mexico City. i did this with my iPhone 4s and I never had a problem with it overseas. Sprint NEVER said they can’t unlock it, in fact the international department was very nice and said "yes, just restore it and you should be fine" i did that and i got a message on iTunes that said that the iPhone was unlocked.

When i called to do the same with the iPhone 5 i got the same response but this time when i did the restore, the iPhone is unlocked message did not come up. i called sprint again and they said that they were having problems unlocking the iPhone 5s and that they send the request to apple but never get a confirmation that the device is unlocked on their end like they did with the 4s.

They told me they would contact me later and eventually a manager emailed me and asked that I do the process again. I had the same result and just left for my trip, when I got to Mexico City I put in the sim card and the phone started working no problem, so i thought that the phone had been unlocked successfully. I can call, receive calls, get 3g get SMS messages but i cannot send any SMS messages

This is a problem that affects ALL sprint iphone 5s that go overseas; it’s a huge problem and needs attention.

Android is crappy, complex and as jittery as a meth addict. You can't defend it. You have to install things just to make it run right, like apps to cut apps from running all day off. Space trash in an aesthetic sense. Your "droid" has little resale value. Most users toss them in the trash when they are done with. Go to Craigslist and you get an offer for 25 bucks and you realize the gas it takes to get this clown will be 30 bucks, so you toss it in the trash. Craptastic phones for shady people. I bet you are staking out a bank right now you clown.


And I dropped my new 5 into a bathtub, dried it in rice and it works lie before and not even the moisture sensor changed color! Am curious how the other plastic phones hold up in water? And i really regret i didn't buy a iphone 5 case for my brand new iphone 5, actually i had seen a cheap iphone 5 cases on the nearby street!
