    Sprint (S) CEO Dan Hesse faces increasing scrutiny from the company's board as it tries to head off any missteps by the exec and becomes "stunningly engaged" in the carrier's direction and operations. Though Hesse has the backing of directors for now, Sprint's five years in the red has them edgy.

    Sprint (S) announces it will sell the ZTE Fury (ZTCOY.PK), a low-end Android phone featuring a 3.5" display and 1 GHz. Qualcomm (QCOM) Snapdragon processor, for just $20 with a contract. The phone probably won't appeal to anyone set on buying a high-end Samsung device, but is evidence of the price pressure ZTE, which has been rapidly gaining share, could place on other Android vendors in the U.S..

    The FCC has sent a letter (.pdf) to Verizon (VZ) requesting documentation to back up its claim it will run out of spectrum next year unless its deals with several cable providers go through. The letter could be a sign that the FCC isn't thrilled with the deals, considering it once sent a similar letter to AT&T over the T-Mobile deal's supposed job benefits. Sprint (S), T-Mobile, and DirecTV (DTV) staunchly oppose Verizon's deals.

    Sprint (S +7.8%) shares surge after Wells Fargo says the no. 3 wireless operator is picking up subscribers from AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK). AT&T has hiked prices on smartphone data plans for new subscribers and has set caps on heavy data users; getting the iPhone last year also has helped Sprint gain users from T-Mobile.

    Giant carrier subsidies for mobile devices are wreaking havoc on the wireless industry, says T-Mobile USA (DTEGY.PK) exec Cole Brodman, whose company has seen major subscriber losses due to the fact it doesn't offer the heavily subsidized iPhone (AAPL). Nomura recently lamented the impact iPhone subsidies are having on Verzion (VZ, VOD), AT&T (T), and Sprint's (S) margins.

    Sprint (S) plans to end its network-sharing agreement with LightSquared as early as next week, Bloomberg reports. Sprint would take the step as LightSquared approaches a March 15 deadline to meet certain conditions under the agreement. The loss of Sprint would cause yet another blow to the viability of LightSquared. S +1.3% premarket.

    Verizon Wireless (VZ, VOD) is introducing a home broadband service that leverages its 4G LTE network. However, the 10GB data cap placed on the service's $60/month plan suggests few video-loving users will be interested. Meanwhile, T-Mobile, Sprint (S), and DirecTV (DTV) are requesting the FCC halt its 180-day review of Verizon's spectrum/reseller deals with cable providers CMCSA, TWC, and Cox.

    Virgin Mobile (VMED), which offers prepaid mobile services over Sprint's (S) network, is unveiling a new ad campaign that touts the carrier's unlimited data plans, and features heavy doses of social media marketing and founder Richard Branson.

    MetroPCS (PCS -5%) and Leap Wireless (LEAP -7.6%) are downgraded at Bernstein, which says carriers are being forced to target more middle-market consumers instead of the low end they've built their businesses on. Moving up will pit LEAP and PCS against the likes of Sprint (S) and require more spectrum to provide service to such customers, the firm says.
