    I’m so dropping Sprint next upgrade. I want more reliable service. They’ve yet to ever get even their normal 3G service in my area cleared up and I find them to be worse now than T-Mobile. Wont be making the same mistake next time. Going the route of a non-contract carrier and buying the device outright and save a ton of money and make sure that the carrier is not a sub of Sprint!

      Thinking of doing the same thing myself… my contract is up with Tmo in 18 days. Gonna go Straight Talk from now on.
