I have to ask, "WTF, Sprint?" Why have you not done ANYTHING with Nextel since picking up the network?
If Nextel was still independent, they would have developed their own 3G/4G network by now. Sprint, on the other hand, has done absolutely nothing with Nextel. They seem embarrassed by it.
The 3G/iDEN "hybrid" phones did work, BTW. My ic902 has been a great phone and it works better than any other Sprint phone out there. I just wish they would list the complaints that people had with the technology.
In short, if the phone is not at least 3G, then Sprint might as well NOT RELEASE it. Keep your junk, and offer us something that works, Sprint!!!
Now, if Sprint/Motorola gave the i1 a similar treatment as the EVO (have both iDEN & WiMax) then this phone would be something.
When someone goes onto Nextel/Boost Mobile and SouthernLinc they are aware that it isn't made for high speed data. If they don't know they will find out. The saving grace for this phone when it comes to data is the WiFi.
