    I am getting my 5th Samsung Moment on Wednesday. The "Tech" at the Sprint store offered to replace my Moment with either a "new" Moment, a HTC Hero, or the Samsung Intercept. I opted for another Moment this time. My question to you... If any of you are former Moment owners now with the Intercept, what are your impressions?
    1.What are the positives?
    2.What are the negatives?
    3.I have read that the Intercept has a different screen resolution, is this an issue with any apps that you use?
    4.How is the Data speed? I have read the Intercept has, or will receive an update that lets it run on EVDO rev A.
    5.The hardware specs are very similar to the Moment, is it laggy?
    6. Anything else I should be aware of if I decide to make the jump?

    At least it will be getting Android 2.2.

    Don't do it! Had 6 Moments each with the same software issues...was replaced with an intercept and it's garbage. It's a total downgrade. It's laggy, soft keys do not respond, shortcuts do not work repeatedly. I have to re-start several times a day. Going to try to be patient till my upgrade, but....

    Honestly, these phones are not worth the trouble. I cancelled my contract and bought an Epic. I hate Samsung with a passion but I can't stand the Evo's screen.
