  1. Apple’s next-generation iPhone will launch on Sprint’s network next month alongside AT&T and Verizon Wireless. In an effort to distinguish themselves from the competition, the third largest US wireless provider…

    Is that the best you could come up with? Really? I'm pretty sure every major brand has fanboys and fangirls. Nvidia, AMD, Intel, Apple, Google, Microsoft. Even brands outside of tech, Ford vs. Chevy. Hell even McDonald's probably has some pretty hardcore fanboys.

    Anyways, I'm somewhat tempted to go to a carrier offering an "unlimited" plan with the iPhone and bring a hardcover dictionary with me and show the sales person the definition of UNLIMITED to determine whether or not this is actually unlimited. You know, doing so in the most sarcastic and smart *** way just to mess with them.

    Where did this picture come from? Is it official?
     
  5. I think the 79.99 for Unlimited Data, Messaging, and calling to any mobile (same plan mentioned without unlimited talk) should be mentioned as well.
     
  6. I wanted a Samsung Galaxy S2 but Verizon sucks so I will probably be getting this...and I hate Apple...but I want the best no matter what it is.

  8. Well considering the service and coverage of Sprint is absolute TRASH they need to offer unlimited data because you will never have a connection to do anything. I was a Sprint/Nextel customer for 3 years and that was the worst 3 years of a cell phone I could have ever had. Since switching to Verizon and having them for almost 6 years now I will never switch to another service provider. If you were smart you would have grandfathered yourself in with an Unlimited Data plan on Verizon's Network before the Iphone releases. I had my Blackberry for 2 years so I will be getting the Iphone 5 with Unlimited Data and I am sure there are plenty of others out there that will be in the same boat.
     
  9. I have sprint with an EVO 4G and this service beats the **** out of the crappy AT&T dropped call service i had for two years with my previous iphone. i will definitley get the new iphone with Sprint.
     
  10. I live out in a wooded area of Alabama and although the signal isn't always great, I have the bars to make a call. And when you figure in unlimited roaming it doesn't matter weather sprint covers the area or not, someone does.

    I also Have the Evo 4G and its the BOMB! I know sprints service isn't the best coverage but I have maybe had a dropped call once in the five years I've been with them. Usually if your out of their service rage you get full bars on roaming and since sprint don't charge you for roaming who cares! Plus if your with Amway you get 18% off your bill each month! AT@T and Verizon cant come close to Sprints prices!

    I'm more than happy with my Sprint Evo 3D 4G. Not going to switch.

    Psst, Sprint roams on Verizon, so where Verizon has coverage, Sprint will.
