does anyone have any real information if this is actually coming to sprint? there were tons of rumors and recent articles about a possible softbank partnership with sony to bring the phone to sprint at the end of this year, but based on the IFA details sony only mentions about t-mobile on the U.S side..

sprint is quick to posts the obvious (typical) new upcoming samsung phones in a press release here, yet mentions nothing about the xperia, while t-mobile posts the xperia.

sprint will really be going down the toilet if they don't start expand the phones they offer.. samsung, apple, samsung, apple, samsung, apple, samsung, apple, ..ugh....

Problem with Sprint is its CDMA. All networks this phone is coming too are ALL GSM.

hope so.. there were a couple highly reputable website such as Reuters and Wall street journal that received inside info that the device is coming to sprint on a deal made by softbank with Sony.. so we shall see. something tells me that t-mobile will have some exclusive launch period though, or perhaps sprint will wait until they launch the new note 4 / edge before mentioning the xperia as they might not want to piss off samsung since they have a strong partnership i would assume..

there is a thread over at sprint forum about people wanting the device, so if you have sprint please take some times and show your support by submitting a post that you would like to see the xperia on sprint; https://community.sprint.com/baw/thread/170526

the Z3 models L55t/L55u are CDMA, just saying

(^ only works with China CDMA networks, not compatible with Verizon/Sprint's LTE)
