    Hello,
    I am on my way to Times Square tonight to watch the ball drop for the first time. I know it will be incredibly hectic, (The news is reporting over 1 million people in attendance tonight). I have Sprint and I'm just wondering if I'll be able to upload photos and such tonight? Have you guys ever been in a dense area like this and faced any problems??
    Also, feel free to let me know what carrier you use and how it is in highly populated areas like Times Square. (I'm thinking about switching carriers)

    Thank you!

    Pretty good chance you're going to have a hard time no matter which carrier you use.

    I agree with having a difficult time with signal. There is not only a lot of others with cell phones but the media will be there broadcasting and all of the police and fire and emergency services with radios. There are a lot of frequencies flying all over the place just bumping into each other. :cool:
