I was wooed by the droid, awed by the evo and surprized by the i1. I worked for virgin mobile back about 6 years ago and one thing I learned was pre paid phones were not as feature laden as their cousins. Sprint and Boost are both promoting this sturdy phone. are the feature set in this phone the same across the board? I believe the 50.00 flat rate some of the pre paids are charging are undercutting the traditional contract savings. What brings me to android is the choice of software. I understand that the i1 is currently "stuck" on os1.5. This could be theoritically remedied, but I really want to see an update performed on the i1. I thought that since android was a os google would release an os update and like magic it would update. iden seems to be an issue for some, although as I understand it opera browser may make it , um ... useable. plus there is wifi all over so no harm no foul. Unless it is like my Sony PSP's wifi. useless. I can use the psp wifi at home and that a few locations and that was it. anyplace that had the confirmation page to log on th the internet was a failure. on the road at a rest stop. no. at a hotel with wifi, no. resturaunts. zip. Will I see the same kind of service with the i1? ok im done for now. thank you.
