Directions for February PhoneArena.com Monday: Dan Hesse...4G...WiMax...Sprint...Green...HTC...Android Tuesday - Sunday: Repeat Step 1 over and over and over IS PHONE ARENA A REAL INDEPENDENT BLOG or A CORPORATE BLOG? About us page says they don't sell phones but they have a Blackberry store and Sprint store? Plus nothing but Sprint ads.

They might have some kind of affiliation with these companies which would explain their preferences We have to admit that Sprint's customers need a little good news every now and with the company losing people and all. Phonearena is not really repeating the previous info they just added to it.

@rwolf i swear you people are the dumbest commenters on the internet. if they praise the iphone theyre backed by att, if they say something good about vzw theyre getting a kickback, now they report a story on sprint and all of a sudden theyre getting money from them. theyre a cell phone news/review site for gods sake, they report news (often rehashes of press releases, which of course are going to be spun.) get a life...

Mr. Anderson...They have a Phone Arena Sprint Store and at the same time Phone Arena claims that they do not sell phones. Sprint has been over done on this site (excessive banner ads, excessive praise...there is a bias towards Sprint on this site) more than any phone or carrier. Phone arena did a store where someone took a GSM HTC Hero and used it as a controller to operate a small robot. Well a GSM Hero isnt on Sprint... I just want to know where I am getting my news from. Will I stop getting my info from phone arena if they are Sprint Corpo bloggers...prolly not...but I just want to know.

I don't think a site shilling for Sprint would have Verizon listed first among Carriers in teh left navigation above. The Carriers area listed by subscriber numbers in descending order which is the best and most practical method I have seen if you are trying to show impartiality...

And anything 4G or even 3.5G is newsworthy in my book since it is on the near horizon.

rwolf are you serious, Sprint is just doing more than the other customer to start the year to make their network and company better, In January it was all about the ipad. Phonearena post whats relevant in the phone industry on that specific date that it is posted. Its not their fault that the other companies are doing right now is creating bogo deals, or talking crap about each other in commercials, or busy replacing track balls that the other companies are getting their customers to just switch to newer blackberry that do not have a trackball.

I know this is two moths later that I'm posting in regards to the comment made by corps1089 - but I believe they've listed verizon as the first due to they're the biggest carrier right now - just a thought - that noone will read - that I'm just wasting time at work with
