Sprint 4g Sucks
I've got two of these phones. Basically like them, but give me a break on the 4G. It is totally retarded. I shuffel between two covered cities and travel to others. When I click on the 4g antenna the antenna comes on, but the phone rarely switches to 4g and if it does it is brief and never operates in 4g. If I do any data I lose what tiny amount of apparent 4g I get. This method of communication is less reliable than carrier pigeon. Don't buy it for Sprints 4g service. It is shockingly disappointing.
