Currently, Sprint’s HD Voice network is pretty small. It’s only available in two markets which are Provo, Utah, and Jacksonville, Florida. However, Sprint’s CEO stated this morning that they are bringing their HD Voice network nationwide this summer, actually July 1st to be exact. Currently Sprint’s HD Voice footprint is rather small, however the amount of devices that support HD Voice is rather large. They include the Google Nexus 5, HTC EVO 4G LTE, HTC One, HTC One Max, Kyocera Hydro Edge, Kyocera Torque, LG G2, LG Optimus F3, LG Optimus G, Moto X, Samsung Galaxy Mega, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and Samsung Galaxy S3. That’s it for Android phones. They also will be supporting a range of the iPhones, Blackberry and Windows Phones as well, for those that use other platforms.
While many people probably don’t care much about HD Voice, it is something nice to have. These days most of us don’t talk on the phone much, we basically use our phone for everything but using it as a phone. However, after using HD Voice on T-Mobile for a good little while now, I can say that it’s definitely a good thing, even if you only make one or two phone calls a month.
Now T-Mobile’s CEO might be looking to bash Sprint now for launching HD Voice – since he bashed AT&T for launching it this year as well. But then again maybe he won’t, especially if Sprint and T-Mobile are in talks about merging. I’ve noticed lately that he’s been laying off of Sprint, possibly due to Sprint looking to buy the carrier. For those of you on Sprint, with one of the smartphones that will work with HD Voice, you’re going to love it!
