Sprint's delivery and set up service launches in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver

Sprint's delivery and set up service, Direct 2 You, is now available for customers living in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Denver. Back in May, Sprint announced that the service would be expanding at some point in June, and that time is now. The idea behind the service is simple, customers can purchase a new smartphone and a Sprint representative will deliver the smartphone, set it up, and even personalize it.

The service is now available in 28 cities currently, and Sprint anticipates to continue expansion throughout 2015. Are you in one of these new markets? Be sure to check out the best Sprint phones available today.

  • I guess it is ideal for people who don't have retail/authorized store near by. But I wonder if Sprint will charge extra for this service. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Worry about the network sprint. This is all good and all but you idiots need to get your priorities straight. Posted via the Android Central App
  • The network is the only thing that matters. All the fluff in the world can't make up for network weakness.
  • The network is weak, but what does this have to do with it. If Sprint wants to use gimmicks to get customers oh well. Obviously the people who will use this service probably have made up their mind about the network already. Posted via the Android Central App
  • "What does this have to do with the network?" Well, I guess one way to look at it is instead of offering this service to consumers (it's a good service), why don't they focus all the resources that they are going to use for this service and invest it into their network instead. This actually is quite expensive because you need to buy vehicles, pay a killer amount on gasoline, insurance, and pay the drivers. That's quite a bit of money that could go into upgrading their network in places where it is needed most. Posted from the Nexus 6, Nexus 5, or Surface Pro 3
  • I'm not defending Sprint nor their network. But the cost of this service is pennies compared to network improvements. What I'm saying is every company in the world is trying anything possible to get customers by whatever means necessary. This is Sprints gimmick at this moment in time. Down the road, there will be a different one, it's just marketing really.
  • Wow. How lazy are people? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Well, I would not mind. I work 6, 8-10 hour days most weeks, I really don't want my only day off spent in a store for a couple of hours. I can think of some other non lazy reasons as well. Suspended license, no car, to old, sick, housewife, way to differentiate your brand, mobile advertising (on the vehicles). Posted
  • I think it's less about lazy people and more about how desperate Sprint are.
  • On the blazing fast sprint network.
  • On the state of the art 3g network Posted via the "None-Ya" app
  • The network is good in New York :..I don't know why people keep talking about this I have sprint n live in ny to be honest all the companies have issues even vzw just go and see their Facebook page they have issues with network the market is pretty the same thing tech has move alone way n plus sprint is the only company that offer truth unlimited without trouttle you down, is not that people are lazy in my opinion and must major cities people are busy and when you get to have a day off you want to stay home some people work everyday here non stop I think is a great idea by sprint.
  • @Xnider......sprint was not truly unlimited with the data. They have lied to people for years. ...now sprint says they will stop throttling.

  • Try actually reading that article. The throttling was only happening at congested cell sites. Instead of throttling everybody to manage usage/capacity, they started with throttling the high data users. We in the industry call that "network management".
  • If sprint goal is to add more customers this is going to back fire. Sprint network is horrible at best once the so called people you fooled into coming to sprint use the service. They will leave and guess what when there friend or someone they know ask about sprint they will pass . Point I'm trying to make is if you got a good product (network) then you wouldn't have to waste your time on trying crazy stuff to get customers. Focus on getting 4g lte in more cities for crying out loud its 2015. I was with sprint before 4g lte and after and in Rockford ,illinois there 4g lte is was slower than the hspa i had when i had tmobile. I get dropped calls alot no matter what side of town I'm own. Hell when i go to Chicago it's the same thing . Only time i get good signal is in a sprint store. If i didn't have internet at home i would of left sprint years ago.
  • Well at least something in their service is expanding. Posted via the Android Central App
  • *inserts comment about network* You guys already said what needed to be said. Sprint really needs to focus and this is not it.. Maybe they only released in those areas because they have decent network all over not just spotty coverage is certain areas. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Sprint service is fine. Before you sign with any carrier make sure they have adequate coverage in your area. Posted via Morse Code
