    Sprint is aggressively rolling out their LTE network starting mid 2012 with many devices to roll out.

    Ouch, that is a very touch question. The slow 3g speeds would make it tough but I believe I would have to tough it out to hold that bad boy in my hands.

    I would get it now with no problem. 3G is tolerable in my area. I have wifi at my job and at my house, so I very rarely use a lot of data on Sprint's network.

    4G isnt that great anyways. I am fine with 3G for the most part. My city where I live I don't get 4G anyways. :P

    Boston's 4G is spotty at best anyways. So for me its not a selling point.

    Also the phone is made by Samsung. Terrible company. So by default I am not interested!

    I've never used the 4g on either my EVO or NS4G and I've had 4g covereage in my area since the EVO launched, so wouldn't bother me, I'd get the GN.

    I voted no...primarily because it would almost certainly not have the LTE radio required for Sprint's forthcoming LTE expansion. This is the same reason that I am having a hard time sticking with Sprint. I am off contract and the current generation of phones looks tempting, but Sprint's network is tired and any Sprint phone purchased before 2012 is somewhat of a dead end. I'd be on VZ tomorrow if their pricing and plans didn't suck so badly.

    I'd wait for LTE and pray for network improvements. Can't best the pricing which is the biggest factor for me.

    I'm in a similarly frustrated boat as some of you above:

    1. I doubt that the GN would come with the LTE radio anyway but in the unlikely event that it would I'd consider getting one.
    2. I'm *really* ready for a @#$^! upgrade but it seems that if I stick with Sprint it is pointless to even think about a phone until mid-next year.

    *sigh*

    Yes...and as long as Sprint is able to keep replacing my wife's and my Pre Minus when they die on TEP (as they had to do this week), I am sticking with it. I just don't see it being worth locking into a new plan for 2 years with a ten dollar premium on each line for what is certainly a great phone, but one on a tired and dying network.

    When I use my daughter's Epic, I am also amazed at the state of Android usability (or lack thereof). ICS seems to be a big leap forward in that respect, but buying one without an LTE capability when Sprint is poised to ditch WiMax for LTE within six months or so seems like a bad idea. Thus, I keep rocking my Pre and biding my time.
