Not thrilled with switching to over to Sprint either, but take a look at this masterpiece:
Preorder has already started at Best Buy and Raido Shack. I'm so fired up for this thing.
Right there with ya brother. Preordered yesterday at the BB in parker.
CANT WAIT for this phone. I had the HTC Hero (which turned out to be garbage, imo), so I'm hoping this phone will be a home run. IF NOTHING ELSE, it'll give me an 8mp camera, fm radio on the go, and the 720p recording capability.
4G isn't going to be available here, either, until the fall. BUT, the extra ten bucks isn't a big deal to me, since it also gives you an unlimited download capability (especially good if you decide to tether or turn the phone into a hotspot), and my plan will STILL be a lot cheaper than Verizon or ATT with similar plans.
The best part about sprint, is the all mobile included with any of the plans 69.99 and above. Basically, ANY CALL to a mobile number is free. Doesn't use any of your plan minutes. That's pretty amazing.
This phone is going to be SOOOOO ****ING SWEET!!! 4.3 inch screen seems big but after holding an HD2 it's really not too bad.
I also can't wait to rub this in my iphone loving friend's face.
