Riddle me this! WILL THE PHOTON 4G GET ANDROID 4.0 ICS? YES OR NO SIMPLY PUT!
Rollouts begin in Q3 2012
won't roam on Verizon from Spring?
I've noticed though, that this phone doesn't seem to want to roam onto Verizon's network from Sprint. I dive an area in LA called "Beverly Glen" (for those of you who aren't familiar) 2x/day back and forth from work. Sprint's coverage in the middle of the canyon there is particularly bad and on my HTC Shift, the little roaming triangle would come up and I'd be able to talk on Verizon's network for that portion of the Canyon where Sprint had little to no coverage.
Same route with this phone and all I get are "no bars- I don't get "no service" so I think the phone is staying locked onto a very weak (probably echoing) Sprint Signal but it never seem...
Did you update your PRL file?
Do not buy this phone!
Has anyone tried the GSM side of the phone here in the states?
I was hoping that the pictures I took while in "office" profile would be the only ones that were displayed in the gallery from "office". But actually all are there.

whose is getting this phone
I am a Sprint premier customer and received the Photon on Friday. I previously had the EVO 3D (upgraded from the EVO 4G). The Photon rocks. I get 4G coverage in areas that I never could with the HTC. It's fast, has excellent build qualit...
cool phone but...Motoblur sucks
I would wait...
Pictures don't transfer from my contacts
Is this going to be fixed or do I need to return this phone and go back to my Evo and wait for the I Phone?
Can you use the dock without tether charge
I wonder if Sprint will allow the dock on the standard plan (naturally with our carrier exclusive "premium data" charge)?
I'm going to upgrade to this phone
Questions will be:
Battery life? (way to short on my EVO)
Will it be better at WIMAX (bad on my EVO and a battery killer when the phone is searching for a WIMAX signal, whereas the Verizon charge LTE works consistently and doesn't kill the battery)?
Does it actually have GSM 1800? (not listed on the Motorola website specifications page but shown on Phonescoop.)
i may get this phone... if...
woow feel bad for verizon
and they getting the iphone too OOOH MAN!!! sprint keep releasing this monsters!!!! with that 69.99 plans verizon better come out with a plan real SOOON
Awesom specs, but...
Latest info. from moto says the bootloader WILL be locked.
Stupid, self-inflicted wounds like insisting on locking bootloaders while essentially all of the competition leaves theirs' unlocked will be the downfall of this company. Sometimes you've got to wonder what goes through the heads of those executives. Note HTC's latest revenue numbers: up 116% yoy. Get a clue Motorola!
They better release this before the iPhone 4S
Any word on the quality of that camera?
Camera aside, it looks like a beautiful phone.
