Now that I'm poised to get a new phone, I think I'll finally give it a go (maybe CM 7.1). I'll probably end up kicking myself for not having done it last year.

Anyway, I checked out the Samsung GSII first hand in the store and it feels like "the one". I prefer it over the iPhone's anemic size and fragile (though artful) exterior. I was "so close" to getting the HTC Evo 3D, especially with the $99 deal, but the SGSII looks better to me. And then of course, I hear the SGS3 is just around the corner... Should I wait?
You might want to wait for the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. You could also just go with the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

They are both LTE equipped handsets, so you will be at the forefront of 4G technology when Sprint flips the switch on LTE later this year. The Sprint HTC EVO 3D and Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II are both great handsets, but they depend on Wi-Max which is dying in a few years.
