    TBH (IMHO) Sprint is just awful. Everywhere I've lived it's been terrible. My dad lived in Pensacola, FL and his service was terrible he was always, ALWAYS breaking up and often dropped the call. Now he lives in Jacksonville, FL and (dead serious) just about every call (90% of them) gets dropped and it makes me so mad. They gave him a free microcell and he still only get's 2 or 3 bars in the house. When I lived in Virginia Beach and had Sprint the service was terrible as well. I'd go with T-Mobile before I'd go with Sprint.

    See for me it is the exact opposite

    I had Tmobile for years until I moved to Jacksonville where I would lose service frequently. I switched to Sprint and pretty much get full bars everywhere around me and even get 4g in a few areas.

    If Sprint were to get the iPhone it would likely only be 3G capable. The only way around this would be to release an LTE capable iPhone as well. All these 4G standards must bug Apple. Think about it, HSPA for AT&T and T-Mobile, LTE for Verizon and now WiMax for Sprint. I'm sure the next iPhone will be HSPA+ capable but I can't see Apple advertising it as 4G capable if Verizon doesn't get their LTE model. In order to for an iPhone to be on all the large national carriers and be branded as 4G there would have to be different models - damn! I was so hopeful with the current QualComm chip being able to support Verizon as well as T-Mobile and AT&T!

    Why would they go to the effort of making a T-Mobile version when T-Mobile will be ATT in a year anyway?

    Because it would require no effort. The QualComm chipset running off of the Verizon iPhone's completely supports both AT&T and T-Mobile, including their annoying 2100MHz 3G frequency.

    I love sprints price but I hate how slow it is, that's why I'm with AT&T now, well that and the fact that I couldn't get an iPhone or something comparable without paying a premium for 4G.
