    What are the advantages of moving to Sprint with no WiMAX? I am already on the grandfathered ATT Unlimited plan but service really kinda sux in my area, my ATT iPhone 4 goes in and out of 3G and Edge to GPS all the time... and I live in a highly populated area of Houston, TX.

    I pay 145$ a month for 2 iPhones, can Sprint beat this with better service?

    also, can you talk and data at the same time?

    YES! Sprint will have better rates....

    I had Sprint before T-Mobile (5 years ago) and at my previous job (a couple years back) - no problems with them whatsoever...

    Plus, T-Mobile looks like they're getting nothing.... they'll eventually end up with AT&T - no thanks...

    I'm pretty sure Sprint's pricing will be in line with that of Verizon and AT&T...Apple won't allow it to be cheaper on one carrier vs. another....what good what it be for Apple if all Verizon and AT&T iPhone users jumped ship to get unlimited everything for $70? I'm sure Sprint will try to lure existing iPhone users with unlimited data initially... but I promise Sprint's plans will eventually (within 6 months) will mirror AT&T and Verizon...bank on it

    You're just speculating with absolutely zero basis for your speculation. Sprint has committed and re-committed to the unlimited data on the handset. Just because ATT and Verizon do something doesn't always mean that Sprint does. Sprint has numerous differentiators where they haven't fallen in-line with the big boys:

    Unlimited calling to any mobile phone
    Unlimited data on the phones
    Free nights at 7pm

    If Sprint wants to grow, it has to be different. Paying all that money for all those iPhones means that there has to be some reason for people to move from their existing carrier to Sprint. So I fully believe that you are 100% completely inaccurate in your speculation that has no solid basis for truth.

    Speculating? Yeah sure but it's based on a precedent; Verizon...did they drop prices? Increase competition? Nope right in line with AT&T's prices...Sprint will do the same...or perhaps you don't know what it means to make a profit? You think sprint has enough cash to pay apple 20 billion and subsidize phones at the same price as Verizon and AT&T? Or do you think Sprint can bleed cash forever? Key word is SUBSIDIZED...meaning Sprint has to turn a profit on voice and data plans
