Sprint is taking a strong stance and making a major change to solve the problem, though perhaps not in the way you might be expecting. The company has decided to cancel the accounts of subscribers who it feels call customer service too frequently. According to BetaNews, letters were sent out on June 29 to 'problem' subscribers notifying them of the termination of their service, which goes into effect at the end of this month.
