Sprint Backpedals On Handspring Add-on

SprintPCS customers who invested in the Digital Link Springboard module for the Handspring Visor maybe dissappointed to learn that the device will not be upgradable to SprintPCS’s 1xRTT network as originally planned. Sprint is being pretty fair by offering those customers a $250 credit towards any new Sprint handset or PC card. Regardless of the fact that there are less than 1000 Digital Link subscribers, this is a smart move on Sprint’s part to help customers clearly interested in data to transition to the new network. Too many carriers these days are so focused on getting new customers they end up making it hard for existing customers to upgrade handsets that take advantage of new services.
