    Sprint couldn't even move iPhone's, with any legitimacy, in their first year of offering...Sprint's popularity is circling the drain.

    And add to that the pure lack of LTE support in so many major markets...why would you want an iPad from Sprint if you couldn't even use one of the major functions of buying the iPad with cellular antennas?

    Why a person would actually WANT a Sprint based iPad is what really shocks me.

    Oh, I was just curious about it. I'm not with Sprint (anymore). But thought it was odd. You explained it, though.

    TMobile should actually be one of the most attractive offerings really, because of their unlimited data packages...something that the other carriers still don't offer, even on the iPad (if memory serves me right).

    Sprint for some reason always does things different. I believe they are a failing company that will be swept up by Verizon over the next few years.

    I don't think T-Mobile does unlimited data for tablets. Unless you just unlock the APN on the iPad and put your phone sim in there.

    If you do a little research, you'll find on apples website that sprint will indeed offer the the new iPads and have more competitive data plans than T-Mobile and other carriers.

    This is why you would want sprint. OMG Still no Sprint iPad but now T-Mobile has it?  What happened?-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1382509080.294178.jpg
    These speeds with unlimited, non throttled data. Maybe you should have stuck with sprint just a bit longer. They are doing much better these days. Sprint's new one up program is great too! Pay the total cost of the phone of your choice over a 24 month period with the option to upgrade every year to a new device all while discounting the cost of your plan by $15 which means Unlimited talk, text, and data my way unlimited plan for $65 a month instead of the normal $80(which already is an awesome deal). Can't beat that! Not to mention the ability to add a 1gig hotspot to your phone for only an additional $10 a month. In my mind the 1 gig hotspot would be a better, cheaper option if one were considering getting the new iPads. Just get the ipad wifi model and tether internet from the phone and save $130 on the ipad. Not to mention also saving an additional $4.99 a month.

    The screenshot of your LTE speeds are moot. The point of his statement was that Sprint has a severe lack of support for LTE in major markets. You happen to be the exception. Just like everything else, there are exceptions.

    This thread is so uninformed. A simple visit to Apple.com will show that all the 4 major carriers are carrying the iPad.

    I suppose you are right. I am just tired of people bashing sprint all the time and making gross generalizations about how terrible sprint is. I can't tell you how many times I've heard the age old, "I've been with Sprint for the last blah, blah, million years...but these speeds/calls suck and I'm leaving". Makes perfect sense to put up with it for ten years to leave right before it gets better. And truly it has gotten much better especially within the last couple of months(results of the softbank merge no doubt). Speeds have gotten better on the 3g side and LTE coverage is rapidly expanding. To think that sprint won't and can't do better is just ridiculous in my mind.

    If you take a gander at post #10 you will see that I have addressed the mal-information.
