Anyone else thinking about this phone???? I'm really thinking about dropping my bb tour for it. Looks like a PURE BEAST

I think you will find Sprint simply doesnt have the 4G network to utilize this phone. Verizon is the first carrier to make the investment in the 4 G network. At&T barely has any 3G.

What are you talking about Sprint is lighting up NYC, Pittsburgh, Miami and DC in OCT and Philly already has 4G these are my main travel area's and this is before Verizon even launches 1 market and from what I'm told Verizon wont even have 4G until summer of 2011...

Only part that's missing for my area is NJ and that will be filled in as Philly and NYC markets expand....Oh well 4G is not an issue for me for sure.

Too expensive and I don't like the $10 monthly fee.

Gotta love that Verizon marketing...

Verizon is NOT the first carrier to make an investment in a 4G network. Sprint is currently the only carrier with a 4G network as has been for a while now. Verizon's 4G network doesn't launch until the middle of November.

At any rate, the Epic looks...epic. I plan on getting one some time in September.
