    I live in the northern suburbs of Detroit and am looking to buy a Note 2. Sprint here is the slow 3G variety. No hopes for a network upgrade. I did some speed tests with the Note 2 at both stores and TMobile is way faster downloading, but Sprint is faster uploading. I am leaning toward TMobile. Any advice out there???

    FWIW, my buddy just got the Note 2 for Sprint, DC/Baltimore area, and complained that data was slower than his disappointing EVO. Check tha Note 2 forum for the comments from other Sprint Note 2 owners however.

    My 3G speeds average 1-2 mb down. 4G averages 6-8 mb down.

    1. Would be cool if this phone actually had wimax on it.
    2. Would be cool if you have wimax coverage in your area. I don't.
