    i'm seriously thinking about getting rid of my epic and going with the prevail. i'm paying 100 bucks a month basically and I can get a prevail and have unlimited everything and my bill goes down to 35 bucks over time.

    I'm so with you! Even just a 450 minute plan is $96 after taxes, premium data, and insurance.

    I asked my sister if she would add me to her AT&T family plan, and she said yes. So, pretty soon here, I'm done with Sprint, and I'm done with Samsung!!

    Really? Go from a 4.0" screen to a 3.2" screen?

    Good luck!!!

    Seriously, I mean it. I couldn't wait to upgrade from my Samsung Moment with the 3.2" screen to the Epic's 4" screen.

    It would be torture for me to use a 3.2" screen again.

    Good luck to you.

    going from $90/month to $40/month... $600 a year.
    if 3.2" is a problem...they can purchase a tablet to use when they want a bigger screen.

    Well they can go from $90 per month to $0 per month, just use payphones, VOIP, borrow someone else's phone as well... LOL

    Somethings in life are worth paying for. $90 per month is not so bad, not when you compare to how much more the plans would be on other carriers.

    And I use to carry a RAZR, and then Palm Centro on my Sprint F&C plan paying $30 per month, wondering how anyone could justify paying $100 per month for the iPhone. These days I think that it's totally worth it for me. I pay around $70 per month after discounts on my ED450 plan. There are plenty of discounts around, including credit union, student discounts etc, that can bring the $90 down a lot.

    Also, don't pay for the $7 per month TEP insurance - that's a waste of money.

    I also have ViewSonig gTablet and iPad 2, but I don't always carry my tablets with me, and it's a pain to have to tether all the time just to check a web page or two real quick. I'm lucky I have a 3G iPad 2 that always has internet on it. Even so, a 4" screen is a must on my my cellphone.

    It is crappy that the budget carriers don't carry a bigger android phone. I mean, I don't expect them to have high end phones, but 3.2" screen...come on! I guess for light/casual users, it's no issue.

    I'm actually debating betweein 4" Atrix and 4.3" Inspire. :)

    IF I were to go to AT&T, I'd choose the Infuse, right now at least. :)

    But I would pay a whole lot more to get a lot less, so Sprint it is for me for now.

    Infuse is a HUGE phone. Inspire is big enough to make you wonder if you want a phone that big, and Infuse is even bigger (I haven't seen Infuse first hand yet but read the dimensions).

    It actually isn't that bad. It's just slightly bigger than the Evo. You should check one out in person, it's a pretty cool physical form factor.

    I will. I went to the Shack, and they didn't have it, but Inspire felt big but I don't think too big. Keep in mind I'm tiny..5'1"..size 4.5 ring finger. And I would like to use a case because i'm such a clutz.
