They can share photos, messages, video and audio files, calendars, contacts, lists and even location information. Multiple Walls can be created, and each is separate and private; the Wall's "administrator" decides who is invited to add to it.

At its event, Sprint also introduced the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport, a phone exclusive to Sprint and yet another example of Samsung's savvy ability to make a good thing keep working for it. (AT&T exclusively offers the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active.)

The GS5 Sport includes all the promised features of the GS5, as well as three hard keys that make the phone easier to operate while you're active and a textured body that makes it easier to grip (especially when hands are warm and sweaty).

The GS5 Sport will also be the first phone to feature Sprint Fit Live, a "complete mobile health and fitness package giving customers instant access to their favorite fitness applications and activities," Sprint said in a statement. 

Fit Live enables users to track, monitor and share their workout activities; it integrates with MapMyFitness (which is included free for 12 months); it can access Spotify Workout playlists (and Spotify Premium free for six months); and it offers a roundup of healthy lifestyle articles and other content.

Basically, it can "educate, motivate, track, monitor, measure and analyze overall fitness," Todd Durkin, a well-known performance-enhancement coach on hand at the event, said in a statement, adding that nothing works better to help people reach their fitness goals than "instant feedback."

Beginning July 25, and for a limited time, Sprint will offer $50 off a Samsung Gear Fit—a device that complements the health and fitness features on the GS5 Sport.

The GS5 Sport will begin shipping July 25 and will be available for 24 payments of $27.09, and in Electric Blue or Cherry Red.
