Just wondering WHY all my local stores are dropping support for Sprint.

My Local Radio shack No longer carries Sprint stuff, BEST BUY no longer
does, and Circuit city no longer does. WHATS going on?

Just signed on with Sprint at the local Radio Shack in Dearborn Mi. Seems to
me they have all the Sprint stuff I needed: ie accessories,holsters,
chargers....
I would guess thats what you mean by Sprint stuff.

Circuit Sh*tty hasn't sold Sprint in at least a year. Was reported here on
a.c.spcs. Best Buy and Radio Shack, as far as I know, still do...

Radio Shack and Best Buy still have a contract to sell Sprint.

I went to my local radio shack Last Night. they had No Phones, No
Software, No Holsters, the display was gone. The kid working there
didn't know diddly.

I remember about Circuit City. But our best Buy which is right across
the street had NO sprint merchandise either. Including phones. same for
my local Radio Shack.

Most radio shack stores are privately owned franchises. The store owner can
sell/do whatever he/she/whoever wants.

Less than 3% of Radio SDhack stores are privately owned franchises.

Another possibility could be that he lives in an affiliate market, and
that particular affiliate isn't doing a very good job of keeping the
local retailers stocked.

Other than that, there doesn't seem to be an explanation. Radio Shack
is still selling Sprint phones and service on a national level, and it
would appear that Best Buy is, too.

Exactly. It's just getting a little frustrating that every store i have
near me is dropping Sprint. Now, I have to go much further to an actual
*Sprint Store* to get anything I need.
