    My 4G map is solid blue. But I'm getting only 1 or 0 bars in 4G. Worst part is that while it switches from 4G back to 3G back to 4G, there seems to be a moment of "dead time," where I have no service at all for a few seconds. When I was updating the software, I just turned 4G off in order to speed up the process. Whats up with that?

    Definitely not worth $10 yet. I want to see how fast it is, but it won't stay connected long enough. Yes, I must be in a bad spot at my house, but did I mention that the 4G coverage map is solid blue for me? Oh well.

    Phone is awesome, though. It even syncs up with Outlook. Bye bye blackberry.

    Keep in mind.. if they sell a million units.. thats $10M a month ($120,000,000) aside from any other funding sources to outfit the 4g network.. just like when 3g was first launched... IMHO have some patience :)

    Get over the $10, that will help fund the future 4G towers.......one day sprint will only be a 4G network and they need the money to do so.....

    Now, now, we all have read that the $10 tax is not for 4G. 4G is free... the tax is for the premium data experience you are getting (specifically, with a fast processor and big screen). At least that's what the Sprint website says :rolleyes:
