has anyone on here switched from verizon to sprint???? I'm just curious if you werre happy with the service.....Thank you in advance, I am in Maryland and would love a cheaper bill, but I am really afraid to port over my business line because I need good reception. So instead I got a different phone number to use for the 30 day trail period....
Thanks for any info you can provide..I got the HTC Shift and love the phone but afraid of revception in some areas, compared to verizon
☹️ Love this phone but have discovered a serious problem: If I'm on a call and get a call-wait and do not answer the call-wait, the phone crashes and I lose both calls (the active one and the call-wait). Very disturbing.
Is anyone else having a problem downloading and opening files on their phone? Mine says file content not supported when trying to open music files! Getting very frusterating! Is there an app that I can get to fix the problem? 😢

That's two phonescoop "reviews" I've read saying that the keyboard was not very good. One from Eric and one from Rich... what gives? The keyboard won't win any awards, but I love it. I think the keys are well placed and easily used. And I also like the fact that you have to move the keyboard without the spring action. I've seen several spring loaded keyboards fail miserably. This one feels like it will last for years. Oh and as far as the video calling... I'm pretty sure it was abandoned on purpose for 2 reasons. 1. Qik being bought by Skype. 2. Everyone bitches about Vid calling on anything but WIFi. The fact is, like you touched upon in one of your articles, Vid calls aren't perfect even on a pc, so I'm not really demanding my cell phone ... (continues)
The processor is the newest version of the Snapdragon processor (the same one in the g2) and is much faster than the Evo's, not to mention a better graphics processor. This phone is essentially the g2 without the trackpad, and Sense on top. Please do your research!
