    That's my thought. And maybe he can take about 200 iPhone users with him?

    Honestly I can say this... I am one of the lucky people where I do get the 4g wimax (Jacksonville FL) . I get 9-12Mbit on average with it and use it at work. I let two coworkers tether off me when they are close on their limited att data plans since I'm rooted. As you can see below that I can use a few gigs easy (I have a week left in this billing cycle. Highest I've ever gone was 20GB in a month... Lots of downloads at work ha).

    But... If I can get this speed and data usage with wimax... LTE will be wonderful. If your in a place where LTE will be turned on soon... Even if it's like 2 months away... I'd stick it out. I mean you have already right?

    P.s yes 3g here is still like 600kbit haha. Also as another note I use WiFi at home instead of 3g or 4G wimax.

    I am not going to try to convince you to stay or go as it is your money and your choice. If you feel T-mobile is the best option for you then I hope you are happy with them.

    Lol..So many people taking up for Sprint but im sorry folks I've been in the so called "first start" area for the past 2 years. Been paying for "premium" data for this long and have yet to receive it. As we all know that 4g service was never improved and is basically none existent. Never had download speeds of more than 100kbps on Sprints atrocious network so going to T-mobile that basically has the same coverage of 4g as their 3g service you can't beat that for 74.99 per month. I never used more than 3gbs of data so the 5gb cap is more than enough for me. So with speeds of 2mbps and 80ms latency I can do all that I desire right from my handset and FAST. Tmobile also has it where tethering is built in so that I can get those 2mbps speeds on my laptop and tablet without any extra cost or rooting. Sprint LTE will be launched in Houston but who says that the coverage will be greater than its existing atrocious 4g coverage?? And why in the heck should I have to pay Sprint 160 bucks to buyout my existing contract and still pay 199.99 for the gs3 when I have honored my end of the contract by paying my plan on time EVERY month. I have been with Sprint for 7 years and I REFUSE to be a beta tester again and have to pay extra for it. It is Sprints fault that they FAILED to deliver a quality and honorable experience to a long lasting customer and then turn around and tell me basically " well we know our 3g sucks, but if you pay us a total of 370.00 bucks we will get you a new phone with the best technology that you can enjoy in 3 cities in your state. We will build out more in 2 years!!" I'd be a fool to sign another contract for a phone thats only usuable in 4 cities with only a few growing every other month..Sprints service is TRASH and this is a non debateable fact

    Instead of constantly bashing sprint and making assumptions about how long it will take them to implement LTE and how good it is just go. You don't have to justify it, if you feel you will get better service somewhere else then so be it. I don't mean to sound rude and I really hope you get the service your looking for.

    Do you think you will get unlimited data from Sprint very long???? LMAO feast your eyes on this post from the Sprint forums:

    Ok, so today I get a text message from "6772 SprintFreeMsg:" that says, "As of 05/18/12, the Mobile Hotspot and Phone as Modem Add-On Service is changing. Visit sprint.com/servicechange for info."

    I am attaching the document of what it says on the website because it will most likely change. It makes NO sense at all!!


    I used to have unlimited mobile hotspot on my cell phone for $30 per month, until I got the new Evo 4G Lte, and they cancelled my Mobile Hotspot.

    I called to get it added back on, and now, they tell me that I can only choose between 2GB for $19.99 or 4GB for $49.99.

    All of this happened last week......today I got the above text message.....

    Honestly we all gave you our opinion. It seems you want a argument rather than just say your switching.

    I get 9-12Mbit and I use 8ish GB on average. So sorry it sucks for your area. Switch and just be on with it? It's not really as big of a deal as your making it. In my previous post I was stating my experience on sprint and I was stating an opinion to maybe wait for LTE to see.

    If you don't want to stay just switch and go. Don't. Belittle people's opinions like your experiences is everyone's and just because you had it from the start makes you special or trumps anyone's opinions. It's a forum... We all said our opinions and experiences and you turn and scoff like we are lieing. Just switch and move on.

    Hey guys..Just did some research and I found that If I got to At&T and using my employee discount of 24% my total bill with 3gb of data is only 80.39 and if I choose 5gbs its on 88.79. Wow!! Im definitley not even thinking about Sprint now. Thats only about a 7 dollar difference and I have yet to use over 3gbs with Sprint. Hello to super fast internet data speeds!!!!

    Dude not too sound like an A-hole but just close the thread already and go to the carrier of your choice. We all get it, you hate Sprint, love anyone else. The fact that you are even considering att is laughable. Some of us actually like our carrier and have had little to no problems with them. Enjoy your amazing, blazing speeds with your data cap. I would hate to see your bill when you go over that 3-5 gigs a month.

    I usually don't like responding to these types of threads because I really don't care who leaves Sprint, but two pages ago you seemed pretty set on not going with AT&T because you didn't want to "pay for text messages" and now you seem like you're all about them. SO I guess if the price is right you're willing to pay for anything?

    Tmobile:
    89.99 unlimited (with contract)
    70.00 Unlimite (no contract)
    Tmobile has greater 4g coverage than ATT as well and their speeds are faster.

    This is a no brainer..lol

    I've personally had all four carriers and while there are advantages to all of them, I ended up liking T-Mobile the best. The data caps are soft caps, so there are no overage fees just throttling. I'm on WiFi most of the time anyway and when I'm not I get great HSPA+ speeds. A quick speedtest yesterday here in Orange County, CA and I was getting 17 Mbps down, much faster than my friends One X on AT&T LTE which was getting 8 Mbps in the same areas. Obviously this varies depending on where you are, but where I am it works out great. Even T-Mobile's Edge speeds seem to be faster than Sprint's 3G, and by the time they roll out LTE to an area big enough to matter his contract will be up anyway and he can switch again if he chooses to.

    Question, what are the speeds like when you go over the limit? Im thinking even throttled speeds are better than Sprints right now?

Smh and their wimax was a joke. It couldn't penetrate a wet paper bag. Never had a problem with calls though. I'll consider going back in maybe 3 years when they actually have late coverage pretty much everywhere if they still offer unlimited but I doubt that will happen. They will soon drop unlimited too.. I think they will leave it long enough to steal some subscribers back and then get rid of it.

    Pandora does great for me on sprints 3g. Netflix would do good. But the audio doesn't match up with the video.

    Grandfathered Verizon unlimited for the win X 2? I pay 275$ a month for 4 lines, 3 of which are on unlimited. From what I'm seeing in here, I'm really gonna be screwed if/when Big Red nerfs my grandfathered plan

    T mobile doesn't have any coverage outside gsm network. They're cheap for a reason..because you can't leave the interstate and still make calls. can't even roam.my friend worked for them do she gave me a phone under her employee family plan. I'll stick with sprint. Yeah the fact they basically no longer have the 4g because upgrading really doesn't bother me. unlimited everything for $80 a month..and that's with the additional premium smartphone data fee. Att rip off. Verizon rip off. Tmobile cheap no coverage. Wifi is everywhere nowadays so never really on 3g anyway.

    Don't get me wrong, I have been very disappointed myself with Sprint's 3G data speeds. I live in Denver, CO and the 4G coverage area is pathetic here. I recently took a trip out to Chicago where I was on 4G at all times with better coverage, phenomenal speeds and longer battery life (because the handset was not constantly connecting and disconnecting from the network). Yeah it makes me a little upset that I am paying for service that isn't as good as I would like every where I go or even where I am usually for that matter. But I do believe they (Sprint) will pull through with overhauling the network and improving 3G data as the 4G LTE network rolls out. And given that the plans are so affordable and it is truly unlimited data, I am OK holding a little while longer. Maybe Sprint has me under their spell and I am going to keep on paying for subpar service until I am as upset as this guy and start calling my lawyer - or maybe, just maybe Sprint will make good on what they have been promising and push forward a network that is superior to the competition and better priced to boot. The way I see it is that Sprint has more motive to make good on their promise then make the same mistake they made with WiMax. Here's :beer: to seeing that 4G LTE network very soon! That wait won't be as painful once I get my Galaxy S3 White 32GB in the mail though

    I'm enough dissatisfied with the slow speeds that I cancelled my preorder and will not re-up for 2 more years. If anything, I'll buy this phone at full cost or wait until the iPhone is released and buy from an "upgrader" on Craigslist.

    Fortunately NV is coming to Chicagoland. I know it's frustrating to have data speeds suck but if you read about the Network Vision plan, uou're find it's solid. This should be a big help to Sprint in the long run.
