That's pretty impressive considering their LTE network is in early stages, these phones have only been available 3-4 months max and it doesn't count the iPhone 5.

You are an absolute and atrocious liar; I drove through that part of MN over a decade ago and I had Verizon "D" (Digital) service all the way; this of course was before 1X, 3G or 4G.

Don't know about that specific area but I travel often and carry both a Sprint and Verizon phone (work and personal) and both carriers have dead zones. They are both great networks but there are places where one works and not the other, and the opposite is also true. Also remember that Sprint and Verizon, both being CDMA carriers, have mutual roaming agreements. In theory, their networks footprints are very similar because wherever Sprint doesn't have native coverage, the typically roam on Verizon (or others), and wherever Verizon doesn't have native coverage, they roam on Sprint (or others).

Sprint's sold a ton of EVO's and Galaxy Nexus', too. The Photon Q 4G LTE is too new but I'm sure it will sell well.

Yea, except for the fact that this excludes the iPhone.

on a seperate announcement, sprint said "The 50 LTE users that live in a coverage are rave about it"....
