So I have a family plan with 5 phones, 2 are eligible for an upgrade through Sprint. The lines are for my mother and grandmother who just have basic phones and do nothing more than make calls on it. Looks like I'm going down to the Sprint store tomorrow and upgrade both lines to iPhone 5's, pay the upgrade price, change the lines back to the old phones and sell the iPhones for a nice profit.

You pulled the trigger too soon. I don't see more than one post before yours that seems to be in the "Apple hater" camp. I suspect you may be of the "troll" or "attention whore" camp yourself.

You could have waited just a little while longer, then your statement might have been better backed.

It tries to make iPhone people look like dumbasses, but ends up making SIII people look like jackasses. They just had to trade playlists, videos/pics right in front of the line. These kind of phone commercials are part of a terrible cycle of fanboyish bullshiat circle jerking that is unnecessary and childish.

Well they still have to advertise (what they think are) the sellable aspects of their product. I think it was a well-done spot.

Apparently you live in some bizarro fantasy world where everybody gets offered exactly the perfect job for them and they live happily ever after. Remember the "horrible Obama economy" you conservative types keep ranting about? You can't just pass up on, or quit, your job because you're not happy. Even when unemployment is only "kinda bad" there's plenty of job seekers such that they don't have to settle for someone who won't shut up and do what they're told.

You also apparently missed the part of the article where a previous disturbance was caused by the factory promising raises and then backing out.

Anyway, I thought we covered this point before: Mitt is not going to be your BFF, so you don't have to defend him and those like him.

I'm still struggling with this. You're not trading songs, you're just providing a list, right? So the other farker you're sending a playlist has to already have that shiat on their goddamn phone. That would mean they've probably heard all that stuff before. Is this a "OMG, you've gotta hear these songs together, it's beautiful man!" That's stupid. No I don't want to hear your goddamn playlist. Keep your playlist infected herp-phone away from mine.
