Just to show that I really do care about consumer activism (my tepid opinion of Engadget notwithstanding) I do appreciate the efforts within the user forums to engage the Sprint network issue. It has caused me to invest more personal energy investigating it. My own consumer activism takes a rather more tangible form I am a new Sprint customer, still in my 30-day trial period, and I have been quite underwhelmed by the network performance overall. I live in what is supposed to be a "4G" city, but the spotty 4G coverage frequently forces me into 3G mode. The bottom line is that I generally got faster and more consistent network performance with T-Mobile. The root cause of part of this (the 3G upload speed) may be Samsung's issue. But I am not Samsung's customer; I am Sprint's customer. They sold me both the phone and the service, and branded the phone with their own logo. So I am leaning toward returning the phone and switching back before the 30 days are up. That is the sort of consumer activism that might get noticed if enough people do it.
