Advice on dealing with Sprint

I spoke to a sprint salesperson about 2 weeks ago and was told that I
could not get any kind of BGP4 peering with Sprint unless I had a
Cisco 7000 series router.

This is my experience also, althought I was able to get my sales
weasel to say that they might except a 45xx series if it had
sufficient memory, as some "exceptions" had been granted on a "case
by case" basis.

As a reseller of IP services they will not manage my router for me,
but said I still had to have a Cisco(tm) router, even if I'm not
peering BGP.
