    Are there certain smartphone features you hope to utilize as Sprint continues to expand its 4G offering (especially in support of the EVO)? Are you most interested in streaming media or using the phone as a hotspot/tethering device? I think its exciting to see how the market is maturing.

    Beat me to that one. My most exciting experience while doing that was watching the battery expire. Play time is either short or done whilst feeding the battery.

    Once 4G ACTUALLY kicks in it would be useful for downloads and Front Facing Camera's I don't think 3G speeds can utilize it correctly. Sprint so called 4G isn't currently 4G nothing released is really. Not until the speeds hit 100mbps on the downloads anyways. currently Sprint's speed is around 6-10mbps. It will take years before Sprint's 4G actually produces 4G speeds. It would also be great for quick loading of videos and etc.

    Nothing. 4g is mostly advertising hype and not actual substance yet. I would be nice if they would develop 3g to it's full potential instead of this 4g vaporware thing.
