    I have sprint and Tmobile right now. Touch pro with sprint and G1 with Tmobile. I have 3 more days to return one or the other. I am leaning towards returning the G1 and HOPING sprint comes out with an android phone soon.
    If the G1 had a flash on the camera and a video camera i would probably keep it but it doesnt.
    So im wondering if anyone knows if any android phone is coming to Sprint any time? Also will Sprint be the first to pick up another android? Cause i know in january android will be an open market....help me out please

    thanks all

    so far, the only other carrier that has mentioned an android phone is sprint. but.. that may not be for a while. its a toss up really. personally id stick with tmo as it dosnt seem kike sprint is doing that well financially.

    only thing that bothers me with tmobile is that i am not confident in their service/reception...i have heard people around here say they get good reception then i hear people say they get bad reception....i dont know what to think lol...though the G1 is REALLY nice....just hope they come out with a 5mp video/camera with flash and android, my DREAM :D

    Don't listen to people, especially if you live in an urban area.

    Around where I live, right next to NYC, T-Mobile, as well as every other carrier, has no problems with reception. Regardless, AT&T and Verizon customers swear that T-Mobile has bad service. There are two places where I don't have reception where I live - downstairs in my house and the cafeteria in my school. Besides that, everything's fine.

    If you have friends with T-Mobile that say that they don't have reception problems, believe them.

    why do you need a 5MP cameraphone? I will take a 3mp with a better lens/software/etc that can produce a quality image. 5mp is too big of a filesize to do anything with.. =/

    If you do any travelling outside of major cities and highways, Sprint has a tendency to fail. If you look at the map, the coverage pretty much sticks to interstates.

    TMO has more dead zones than Verizon or AT&T, but they still have pretty good coverage. At least I get a signal all the way to Cape Girardeau, MO (where my in-laws live) and Branson, MO (where my in-laws vacation) regardless of the route I take. A friend's Sprint phone always crapped out along at least one stretch on any route.

    If you need a 5MP camera, don't use a phone. Just buy a point-n-click. It will always be better than a phone's camera.

    yea i hear you, a few people i know said that Tmobile is pretty decent but they have certain spots they dont get reception (basements)...other than that they say its good...so maybe ill just believe them ;)

    I was being sarcastic about the 5mp camera....a 2mp+ is fine for me but a flash is a must...i just hate not having one even if i dont use it a lot...

    Yea i really dont go out of the area unless its in another big city...i go up the mountains every year or 2 to go snowboarding other than that i stick to the main cities....
