    Maybe T-Moble and Sprint should Merge... too bad they do not create a cross CDMA/GMS system... are they really that different besides using a sim card and having the circut integrated into the phone itself... there has to be some way to technologically cross them... it is time to move toward a standard... Both have invested in either side... supposed to have competition, but competition has become moot when consumer hardware is the abstraction for the competition and not infrastructural upgrades and creative services. The last 2 creative services I have heard of (excuse my ATT bias regarding knowledge of plans) but the concept of ?Rollover Minutes,? which was really Cingular's and Apple's Visual Voicemail that came along with the iPhone (not sure if Android phones are enabled with a similar service).

    Please enlighten me to other carrier services... besides the standard you get this many anytime minutes and this many night and weekend... and you pay this much for txt. Someone on the data only spectrum needs to come in and Do a pure VOIP and Data plan. I rather have throttling than data caps... it sets the stage to further damage and cause desire for a non-net neutrality based web. Some company needs to disrupt the industry with a VOIP and Data service over Wimax, Lightsquared, and any other technologies like the LTE stuff. We need a push.

    My ISP (suddenlink) has nearly cut off access to bit-torrent connections. I can upload maybe 0.2kbps max. I've tested this from multiple modems across the county. Hope you report on this soon.

    So, this is just iPhones, right? No Androids? I can tether my android, and I dont pay a fee... I still have unlimited data plan... maybe I should check my plan? I havent received a letter yet....

    Not to rub it in but I download Gigs of junk week to week, thank you SPRINT! No extra charge on my EVO 4G, but if your really an iPhone5 fan rumor is Dec 2011 on Sprint Network everyone wins and stick it to ATT and Verizon for raping the consumer
