While in some areas, Sprint has a good 4G connection, but in others, it's spotty. Then you have Sprint's 3G network, which at least in my area, it's slower than shit. Think 350kb on a good day with a ping between 200ms to 999ms. Point being, if Sprint is going to push this, they best have a plan to revamp and deliver 4G faster than they currently are now. Considering that Clearwire is going under, it'll be interesting to see what Sprint plans to do. Personally, this could be the end days of unlimited, or higher price hikes for customers on the Sprint Network.

According to cnet, Sprint is shifting to LTE and is planning to launch the service early next year: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-20112095-94/sprint-to-launch-own-4g-lte-network-in-early-2012-scoop/

Check on the news regarding Steve Jobs, and please let us know if the bad news is true.  My condolences to his family and friends.

I never was an Apple lover, but hearing that Steve Jobs passed away, a man who shaped the computer industry, we've honestly lost someone valuable. As Biceps has said, my condolences to his family and friends.

Sadly, it does appear to be true. http://www.apple.com/stevejobs/

I can imagine that the iPhone is going to slow down the broadband traffic of Sprint. I am unsure. What they could do is impose caps exclusively for the iPhone. Or they could charge a special (more expensive) iPhone price. I am on Verizon, and since the iPhone 4 was introduced to it, I have noticed a much slower service on my broadband... Oh well. We all lose.

They may charge the $10/mo "Premium Data" price that they've been charging on the 4G Android phones.  They say that the carge is because the phones are "data intensive" rather than because they're 4G.  Following that logic, I would expect them to charge the same for the iPhone.

Where have you been? That fee applies to all smartphones Sprint sells, not just 4G phones. Also, if anyone has seen Sprints latest commercials, they now advertise their cheapest plan as 79.99, so it looks like the fee is across the board for everyone now.
