go look at the minneapolis / st paul coverage map!! Sprint why would you launch such incomplete coverage ? you should have waited

its a soft launch. only about 50% of the initial build is up and running. the full build will be up in 30-60 days.

Indeed. I live in Hopkins (Mpls Metros area) and there's no coverage whatsoever! And the western suburbs (like Minnetonka) are left out completely... I sure hope they're going to keep expanding...

"Technically", it's there just not in all of the areas yet. They're going to be installing them in segments across the metro area(s). It just takes time to do this. Does anyone remember when 3G topologies were rolled out? It's was same process. Again, give it time.
