I'm not worried about Hong Kong, but most of the cities I visit in China are somewhat remote.... it's unfortunate that this is not a true Quad band phone. Although - maybe it doesnt matter?
Keep in mind that many of the places that use the GSM1800 bands have functioning (compatible with sprint) cdma networks, such as china, japan and south korea
Check sprints international coverage http://internationalroaming.sprint.com/IntlCoverage/SearchCountry.do?ECID=vanity:sww
Take note that cdma data roaming is ridiculously cheaper than gsm data roaming
