1) WiMax is a loser technology. (As predicted by BC what... 2 years ago?)

2) T-Mobile lacks any growth strategy. Not having the iPhone has meant that AT&T has been eating their lunch. They've been mostly eating up the people who cannot afford to be on Verizon and AT&T (to be fair, they treat their lower-income customers better, but most people are on T-Mobile because the other networks are 'too expensive.')

3) Sprint's got no growth other than WiMax, which is a joke. WiMax rollout would've been great 18 months ago. Now it's battery-draining and ridiculously limited. And the fastest speeds I can pull in on my EVO Shift are still slower than what I get on my iPhone 4. But I don't dare turn on 4G unless I know I'm near an outlet. Fail.

1) there are more people on wimax then LTE, so i don't see how you come up with that statement. (sprint and clearwire in the US)

2) Don't care about this one it is what it is.

3) Sprints biggest growth has been prepaid, not wimax so get your facts straight. And i will not believe your bs claims of your iphone4 on gsm 3g getting faster speeds then my EVO in good 4g coverage. In downtown Kansas City i get 8mbs and at home i get 2-3mbs. And i also call bs on you owning anything than a Iphone, we all know you to well bluecoyote.

4) Sprint did not give up on WebOS palm tanked themselves. And Sprint is getting a Pre 3 so again you have false claims.

if you're too poor for vegas, come kick it in reno. half the price, equal amount of fun IMO if you've already seen vegas before. plus, lake tahoe is less than an hour away and lake tahoe is beautiful to visit. virginia city is cool too if you like western history at all.

Oh and Lte is a winning technology?

What are u basing this on? There are no Lte phones to compare to Sprint's 4g phones so how do you figure wimax is a loser tech. Wimax is a now tech which is why Sprint rolled it out in the first place they are the NowNetwork. Sprint brought Wimax because is was ready long before lte.

Verizon still has not release one phone that works on there shinny new lte network so its not clear if the advantages we believe lte has over wimax even exist. Data plans for Lte phones have not been released either.

Lets be real. Wimax does have battery issues but lte shares those same issues. Anytime you have those types of speeds coming into a mobile device there are going to be battery issues. Sprint and Samsung ...

no lte phones? um try the THUNDERBOLT diamondpro. It will shoot BOLTS OF THUNDER all over your epic's face! battery life is better, phone is better, LTE is better, EVERYTHING IS BETTER! you might as well just leave sprint now and call it a day. my friend has prototype thunderbolt, and battery life is like 48 hours dood! so wimax and sprint will be dead soon...hopefully you guys will be lucky enuff that tmobile buys you out and saves you.

prove me wrong diamondpro, prove me wrong!

As annoying as I find the Azure Canid, I do find he has a point with webOS. While Sprint didn't do so well with marketing a very well designed OS, it's also Palm's fault for cutting corners on both OS and hardware, which did not step up to the test of time. and HP doesn't want to try and rectify that, instead going with the hardcore business model of "buy the new one if you want all the stuff you were promised would eventually work on your Pre Minus." hehe, Pre Minus. And they still haven't fixed the keyboard's lackluster performance.

With that said, I did go from a Touch Pro 2 (I liked that phone) to a Pre Plus Verizon. And while at first it seemed it would be "meh", once you put on Uberkernel and Overclock it right up to 1GHz, and modif...

How long do you plan on keeping it though? I thought about getting one with TEC and keeping it for years, but I like my grandfathered tethering feature.
