Sprint is looking for motivated individuals to help make positive changes on behalf of the blind and low-vision community.
My experience as a low-vision individual has proved an asset to shaping Sprint’s goals for the blind and low-vision community. I invite you to join me in furthering wireless accessibility for other blind and low-vision individuals. In order to do this, I need your input.
I know that each person has unique needs and preferences when it comes to their wireless devices and how they communicate. What is helpful and appropriate for one person may not be so for another. That is why I am asking for your help. I want to make sure Sprint’s accessibility, customer care, and wireless plans meet your individual needs and encompass everything you look for when choosing a wireless plan.
Getting involved is easy. You do not need to be an existing Sprint customer to participate. Get in touch with me via e-mail, [email protected], or call me at (720) 988-6744. I look forward to having an open discussion with you about any or all of the following:
- What kind of phone/device do you use?
- Which features or services are most beneficial?
- What can we do better as a wireless partner to serve you better?
- If you aren’t an existing Sprint customer, what would motivate you to switch carriers?
