also part of the reason the AT&T network suffered when the iPhone originally launched was mostly due to a sub-par network for the number of users they had (they still have this problem), sprint does not have this problem. their network is capable of the users they currently have as well as many more.
There is amble reason for us to be concerned. Sprint's network can currently handel our data useage, but all of the Apply fanboys that come out of the wodwork could screw us. We will need tojust wait and see how popular the Sprint iPhone is and tak eit from there.
