I don't have any Sprint contacts; they are specific to your region.  I
talked to them years ago and decided not to do it, didn't keep any of the
contacts.  It was relatively easy to get in touch with someone there
(unlike every other carrier).

IIRC you could start off with only 100 users.  We have a local competitor
who did it and I haven't heard whether they like it or not overall.  We
lost one government deal to them because of this, otherwise I haven't
noticed any impact.

All of the other carriers needed a far larger scale and seemed less
interested overall.  If it's going to be GMS and in the US, you're pretty
much talking AT&T.  T-Mobile is unstable financially and managerially, plus
their network is incompatible with top phones that your customers will want.
