I have been happy with Sprint service for 8 years, but I am rarely happy with their phone choices.  I think it sucks that there is such a huge difference between the phones available on the different services and I suspect there are daggers and $ behind those decisions.  That said, MS has always been the "almost" cool kid on the block with "so much potential" (say it like a mom).  MS simply can't open phone markets and they have tried a long time.  So I suspect they will be be late to market, take a while to get things right, and then at end of life, they will really have a great product (Zune?).  I like my EVO so I don't see my loss.  Sprint may lose a few million more subscribers, but they are used to that.

As long as I can get one of these in Canada (Manitoba), I don't really care what carrier I get.

phone  are there going to be out and 2010? I really want to get the first window mobile 7 phone to hit the market but at the same time T-mobile coming out with 4G, Sign of a Dual core hitting mobile phone etc etc. All i want is a kick butt phone.

Sorry Microsoft. I was all hyped up to get in on WP7 as soon as the gates opened this fall when I'm eligible for the on-contract discounts, but I'm not waiting. Android will get my business for another year at least.

Way back when it was Omnipoint! Anyone remember Omnipoint? Not one issue with them yet! tried AT&T for a week to get a feel on their service 10 years ago. It sucked back then it still sucks now! And they tried to extort 1 months service from me even though I returned the phone 7 days before the end of the grace period.

Fingers crossed for windows phone!

I know I'm in the smallest percentage of Americans. That is, those with no GSM network available anywhere close enough to be useful. But I thought Verizon was a pretty big deal. So why is it that AT&T scoops up so many exclusive deals? And for that matter, why are there so many network exclusive phones at all? Nobody seems to think that highly of AT&T's network. At least not the ones who post.

is used all over the world. CDMA is used mostly in North America and I don't think even Canada uses CDMA. Most cell phones are built with GSM especially from cellphone makers outside the USA. CDMA also costs more to make. AT&T and T-Mobile uses GSM and frankly, I hope Tmobile will get the exclusivity to a really high end phone instead of AT&T since they already have the iPhone.

By some point in 2011 it won't matter anymore, since Verizon is switching to LTE.

Better come out with a kick ass phone for this os. say something that looks like a zune hd but with a slideout keyboard similar to the g2. tmobile's latest version of 3g should work perfectly with this phone's online services and come as standard to compete with sprint's 4g service. if at&t gets the better phone, i will be extremely disappointed for tmobile to once again drop the ball. how freakin hard is it to negoiate a deal to subsidise an iphone! really!
