My Evo rocks. Had the chance to check out some relatives iphones over Christmas. Needless to say, I like my Evo even more now.I switched from an iPhone to an EVO and I am very happy. I think that pretty much all the phones are on par with each other its really the service that changes everything. Sprint and 4G has been amazing to me.
They have the best network in the US, so competition against ATT is good, they have been a criminal organization for the last 50 years at least.
Is there any topic you can't turn into the next conspiracy theory?About 25 years ago I had all my Toll Free 800 numbers with ATT, well they were overcharging big time in those days, they blackmailed me, they basically were going to put me out of business on a certain day if I did not pay the 1,300 dollar bill, so that is the kind of company you are dealing with.
Yeah, they'll need to upgrade to 4G as well. Not bad for Apple - For ex. Owns iPhone on AT&T for a few months, buys new one when switches to Verizon - then may buy another for 4G!http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19512_7-20028154-233.html?tag=mncol;txt
Verizon's iPhone won't be able to use data and the phone at the same time, AT & T can.
And fair warning, it's been 6 months since the iPhone 4 came out, typically a new one rolls out in June, don't be in such a hurry to jump on the bandwagon when the newest one may be just 6 months away if recent history is any indication.
The ITU finally caved this week tho so yes, as of this week, we do have 4G. But only because the ITU relaxed the standards, not because the US MET the standards, We just falsely advertised.All 4G is not created equal," Lowell McAdam, Verizon president and chief operating officer, said Thursday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The result: Users, who genuinely want a faster smartphone experience, are left awash in acronyms as they weigh a phone upgrade or carrier switch.
"The industry uses a lot of technology-based definitions that don't mean much to consumers," said Don Kellogg, senior manager of telecommunications research and insights for Nielsen, who recently studied consumer confusion over the term 4G. "People want to know how is this going to benefit them."
—T-Mobile uses a wireless standard called HSPA+, which the company is advertising as 4G.
—Verizon Wireless is using a technology called Long-Term Evolution, widely seen as the faster standard, to deliver its 4G network.
— T-Mobile said Thursday that it would be able to double the speed of its HSPA+ network this year through software enhancements.
— AT&T confuses things even more, by deciding to start this year with an HSPA+ roll-out before eventually upgrading to an LTE standard similar to Verizon's by year end. They'll call the network 4G the whole way through.
—Sprint uses another standard yet for its 4G network called WiMax.
To complicate things even further, if you were to follow the initial 4G standard set by the International Telecommunication Union, none of these networks would be worthy of the 4G moniker.
