Tmobile has their own note now, or is going to release it. I don't keep up much with post paid phones.

I bet it will be frickin expensive as hell to get one unlocked so I can use the prepaid for it.

so we don't even know what the specs are for this reverb phone? >_<
ah well guess I'll give the EVO V a shot after all. If that doesn't work I might try the Galaxy Nexus with Straighttalk or Tmobile.

I say go T-mob if that doesn't work out. They finally have a uncapped 4G for $30 now. But I think that only gets you 100 mins.

I thought the uncapped was 49 plus 20 or something like that. I think I read that in the link in this thread...

The one you're talking about Kahroo I think is 30 a month for 5GB and 100 minutes of talk.
I'm not chatterbox but I don't think 100 minutes would be nearly enough for me.

They also have a data plan of 100MB unthrottled. Really?? Only 100MB?? That's so stupid.

Very upsetting news in my opinion. I mean I'm sure the Reverb is a nice phone, but definitely not conference worthy.

I suppose I'll wait a couple weeks until there's more info on this phone, and then I'll decide whether I should get it, or just buy a brand new Galaxy Nexus and go to Straight Talk.

Based on the picture though, the shape on the bottom of the phone is just plain ugly.

Well, there it is folks. If you don't like the EVO 3D, your choice for an upper-tier prepaid phone ain't gonna be VM.

Underwhelming news to say the least, although the S2 on boost peaked my curiosity. But since it's still on Sprint network, nothing would change for me. A great phone on a lousy network in my area.
Oh well.
