    Now that Sprint's joined the ranks of AT&T and Verizon, how are any MacRumors members enjoying their new iPhones on the Now Network?

    Nope, data speed still blows. Calls are great though, no drops at all.

    A cousin and a friend both got a 4S on Sprint and love it. Both are not noticing slower data speeds either.

    I absolutly love my iPhone 4S on Sprint. The data speeds are comparable to what I was getting on the evo, and the iPhone blows the evo out of the water on ease of use and it just simply a beautiful piece of technology.

    Yep! I'm usually running very well, but I'm in the Seattle area, which has a very strong Sprint network.

    I'm loving it. Data speeds are between 700Kbps to 1.3Mbps. Calls are crystal clear.

    The speed I have on my Verizon phone is slower than say when I had my AT&T iPhone 4 but the fact it's reliable and never gets server timeouts means that it's awesome. I'm sure sprint is the same.

    What good would my results serve anyone that doesn't live here?

    Far too many people are hung up on that. If you live in a different area, you're results aren't going to match. It's also going to be affected by network congestion, nearness to towers and etc.

    Decide what is, or isn't acceptable to you.

    I've read quite a bit that AT&T offers the fastest speeds (area-dependent) but that Verizon offers the most consistent of speeds across the board. Also, Verizon's call reception is second to none but then again, I'm sure we all know that.

    ----------

    I'm wrong I'm sensitive I'm any of the above.

    Same here. The data speeds in Pasco county were so bad.

    Happy so far. Data isn't that fast, but it's fast enough. At least I can get a signal in my house. ATT sucks ass when you go off the main roads into neighborhoods. I lived in two houses in Virginia with ATT and got nothing, then moved to Florida with ATT and got nothing in the house. Now I've got a signal with Sprint. It IS a phone, afterall.

    I'm not as happy as I thought I would be.

    I've been on Sprint for a few years now, and I have run into the limitations of their data network. For the most part, I was ok with them. The devices I was using for data usually weren't optimized well for what I wanted to do with them, or did the job enough of the time for me not to complain. Basically, I was willing to settle for less since I had already settled for less.

    But now? The iPhone is a beautiful piece of technology. It needs a network that handles data as seamlessly as the device itself does. I should not have to hope to run into a more powerful wi-fi network when I'm walking around downtown Philadelphia and want to download an app. Youtube videos should not stutter to a stop every 2 seconds. And I shouldn't have to think about how many calls I've missed that have magically turned into voicemails because my phone did not ring. Sprint's data service is not good enough and the voice isn't either. I'm seriously considering trying another network.

    I've rooted for Sprint. It's time to do better.

    Switched from AT&T to Sprint. AT&T data was a bit faster but was dropping calls often. While Sprint's data isn't as fast it still does the job. I stream radio pretty much all day with no issues. Voice calls have been great as well. South Florida, Fort Lauderdale area.
