    While I can respect what you're saying I will NEVER go back to GSM phones, #1 reason being is they're also the easiest target for getting stolen, I don't like the thought of that, at least if you have a CDMA phone that phone is locked to your carrier and if stolen it can be shut down and not used at that point, with GSM phones you steal the phone take the sim card out throw it away and put yours in no one will even know, so yeah you could NOT get me to go with GSM phones at all... as far as the data speeds for the GS3 you can get the same speeds out of the GS2 on Boost Mobile through Sprint's network so what's the difference other than the GS3 being a slightly better phone??

    Lol..we will have to agree to disagree my friend.

    i have had sprint and boost..and virgin for that matter..i have had 3g,4g and lte phones under sprint..and never seen those kinds of speeds..not that its not possible..and i wouldn't dare call anyone a liar..but i would have to see proof of said speeds under sprints network..i had the evo lte, and live in metro DC area..and was lucky to pull 10-15 mbs down..

    Lol I hear ya all I'm saying is speed really doesn't make a difference to me as long as the device functions the way it's supposed to that's good enough for me, it's like I've said about computers, one of these days they're gonna make them too fast that they're not gonna be able to function correctly at that point, I don't need ungodly speed, no reason for it really, these devices are mobile phones and to push them beyond that with data speed is basically asking the customer to do things with the phone other than what it was intended to do... I also had the same as you've had and I've definately seen higher data speeds then 10-15 mbs down lol! :p

    I did upgrade to the Galaxy S2. It is a great phone. My prevail is being used by a family member now, as it is still a very good phone. :)

    An S3 switched over to boost. I'd want it in (see through) emerald green!
