Wow! Really? Never did I think I would stir such a reaction from fellow forum members.
My only intention was to 'vent' my displeasure from my experience when making the purchase of my last phone with an implied (and stated!) coming service that I was looking forward to. As it turned out, the phone is a better device running on 3G than any other I've had experience with. Still, it was part of my own decision-making process to take into account that this phone was 'soon' (as stated over and over by SPRINT) going to provide some blistering speeds when needed. I am up for a new phone now. I wont be doing so until they get the appropriate infrastructure IN PLACE in my market before I purchase. Simple.
If I traveled frequently perhaps I'd feel differently.
