At Sprint we know customers appreciate the flexibility and convenience of purchasing third-party mobile content – such as weather, sports, alerts, trivia or subscriptions - and paying for them through their monthly wireless phone bill. But no one wants to pay for things they didn’t purchase. “Wireless cramming” refers to instances in which a wireless customer asserts that he or she did not authorize the third-party content charge that appears on his/her monthly wireless invoice.
Since its beginning, Sprint has set the standard for innovation. Sprint built the country’s first 4G wireless network from a national carrier, the nation's first all-digital fiber optic network, the first nationwide digital PCS service, and the first nationwide push-to-talk iDEN service. At our Research and Technology Lab in Burlingame, we continue this rich heritage of innovation.
