Hopefully Sprint is quicker to use the added customers and revenue to build out their network, it seems to me that AT&T waited for 2-3 years before finally building out their network. If I remember right they wanted to make sure the fad stuck around.

They will... They are bringing 4g to more cities this year and Los Angeles is part of the list (end of the month) so Sprint knows whats up lol. AT&T on the other hand got to excited in getting revenue from the iPhone that they forgot to update their network.

Good point, although 4G with SPRINT has huge gaps in most places right now, but the plan is good. AT&T spent 2-3 billion less in 07-08 on the network than previously, and that right there contributed to the issue. Plus, as STEVE JOBS previously stated, any other network would have had the same issue. IPHONE just grew too big too soon.

I think other carriers would have reacted more quickly. I recall reading articles that AT&T wanted to wait and see how the iPhone played out before investing large sums of money into their network.

Sprint has more than a network to worry about. I went to a store and played with evo for a few minutes nice hand set, hope they can use this as start to level off the bleeding customer base.

This phone would have sold 4 times the amount on AT&T network and more than 2X if Verizon had it on theirs....good thing it is not AMOLED.

no one said what 4g is or how it works so to me 4g is just 3g with some speed restrictions removed.
