    Sprint (S -4.8%) sells off after New York's AG files a $300M+ tax fraud suit. The carrier is accused of failing to bill customers for $100M+ worth of taxes over 7 years, in order to make its service more competitive. Fears likely exist that other states will file similar suits.

    Sprint (S) CEO Dan Hesse says he still gets "crucified" by investors for his company's deal to carry the iPhone, due to the huge purchase commitments attached, and sees it as evidence of Wall Street's short-sightedness. "There is a disconnect with Wall Street because if you’re building a brand, it does take a long time," he says. But Sprint's board hasn't always agreed with Hesse's vision either.

    AT&T (T) boosts the amount of data offered in packages for prepaid customers, as it steps up efforts to compete with low-cost plans from players such as Sprint's (S) Boost Mobile and Leap's (LEAP) Cricket. AT&T says customers using its GoPhone service will now be able to use double the amount data for the same price.

    Privately-held Cox Communications sues Sprint (S +0.5%) in federal court seeking a ruling setting out that it's not infringing on 12 Sprint telecommunications patents. For good measure, the firm also alleges in a separate claim that Sprint has infringed on two of its own patent related to multimedia delivery methods.

    The major wireless providers agree to a deal with the U.S. government to build a central database of stolen cellphones, part of a broad effort to tame an explosion of thefts nationwide. Cellphone theft is one of the fastest growing crimes, and the deal between the FCC and wireless carriers is partly the result of pressure from frustrated police chiefs.

    Sprint (S) has quietly confirmed its 4G LTE network, which will arrive in 6 markets by mid-year, will support unlimited data plans. This could be an incremental positive for Clearwire (CLWR), to the extent maintaining unlimited plans will lead to additional traffic for Clearwire's network.

    MetroPCS (PCS +1.2%) is joining its larger peers in throttling download speeds (previously) for subscribers who exceed specified data usage levels. The discount carrier is also raising the price of its unlimited data plan by $10 to $70/month, albeit while eliminating streaming restrictions. The news could be a modest positive for Leap Wireless (LEAP) and Sprint (S), both of whom still aggressively push unlimited data plans.

    Sprint (S) VP Bob Azzi says his company's 4G LTE network will be up and running in 6 markets by mid-year, while referring to bigger rivals AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ), who have a solid head-start on Sprint in deploying LTE, as "duopolists." He adds Sprint, which is looking to offer its first LTE devices in 2H, will use Clearwire's (CLWR) spectrum to provide LTE capacity in high-traffic areas.

    FreedomPop provides details about its much-speculated plans to offer free 4G services via Clearwire's (CLWR) network. FreedomPop will offer 1GB/month of free data that will be supported by ads and value-added services, as well as prepaid wireless data plans it says will significantly undercut existing offerings. Initial devices will include a USB modem, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and an iPhone case with built-in 4G connectivity. Update: GigaOm provides more details.

    In addition to raising the possibility of future M&A and spectrum purchase activity, Sprint (S) CFO Joe Euteneuer says his company is open to a deal with Dish Network (DISH), possibly one in which Dish offers services using Sprint's network and its own spectrum. Speculation is up that Dish will agree to such a deal, and that its stated plan to build a 4G network of its own is a mere bluff.

    Sprint (S -1.8%) loses ground after CFO Joseph Euteneuer says at a Barclays conference (webcast) his company is looking to buy more spectrum, and that the wireless industry should see more consolidation, albeit while adding Sprint currently doesn't have the "currency" for a deal. Sprint's aborted attempt to acquire MetroPCS (PCS -4.1%) last month wasn't well-received by the Street.
