I average 3-4 gb per month easily and yes I do use wifi as well. Good thing I too have unlimited grandfathered in with ATandPee. But for how long I wonder that this too will vanish and become the stuff of only legends...

hey guys, you are all not looking at the big picture, iphone is comming to Sprint obviously....here are facts: Sprint has the best plans period, Sprint has the lower credit approval rating meaning easiest company to get service through, Sprint offers the highest employee discounts, Sprint has UNLIMITED data....

If Sprint were to cap data, they would of already done it which they wont due to increasing ETF, Upgrade fee, and lets not forget, the $10 add on for smartphones which has been going on...

Even if they cap data, big picture here is, ALL THE OTHER CARRIES HAVE A CAP!! that being said, Sprint still has the best deal, again due to best plans, and easiest to get, who cares about 4G, its a game over for all carries, now Sprint will have ALL the phones to choose from. We know Sprint doesnt have the great coverage but for me its fine, its when you compare rural areas in which u will never be in is where there is a problem.Ive had all carriers and have no issues other then AT&T being number 1 in dropped calls.

Capping data wont happen, atleast not for a while, they have invested millions in marketing the no cap commercials and what not, you have have seen them putting a hault to that.

I bet all the price for the other phones will go up to match the price of the Iphone soon just like what verizon did.

As of late sprint has been making all the right moves. I would say that the coverage can be way better than it is rite now but as far as the latest phone selection and plans sprint might survive this lil carrier war. I agree that the no data cap is working wonders for the company but probably once consumer numbers goes up it might come; but for now its not going to happen or going to happen anytime soon. Im in love with my photon 4g. Its speedy and powerful yet still survived heavy data and voice usage. The next phone on my list is the SGSII. I Simply can't wait for it to drop. Overall Sprint is doing great things and im loving being in the now network.

jsjr76 I use netflix on my 4.3" screen on my HTC EVO 4g, why don't u stop being a bitch and take one of your guns and blow your head off. No really what we do with out TRUE 3G AND 4G is none of your concern. I easy go through 5gb each month with no hassle, and my wife uses Facebook and other media apps and still hits 5gb on her EVO 3D. We don't have internet or WiFi at our house so we rely on our mobile internet to get us by. If you don't like it, don't come here running your mouth telling us how to use our phones Steve jobs Jr.

In all honesty, this has been a simple catch and release to see what the consumer really wants, and I couldn't agree more with ALL of you. I do appreciate the passion in which everyone have responded and do apologize for any "confrontational" exchanges. The fact is, ALL of the providers have been so busy trying to screw the other that the consumer has become the victim. For whatever reason it is that one uses their device, whether it be for Facebook, Netflix, whatever, there's no excuse not to have unlimited data. These yahoos saw the technology coming and where it was headed, and knew damn well what to do next. They just didn't, and now there are around 300 million cell phones out there and not enough spectrum (suppposidly) to support them. Shame on all of the Big 4 for their failures to provide the consumer with what they need. They certainly have the capital to do it. And double shame on the FCC, y'all just plain vanilla suck and are the largest welfare recipient group in the nation that serves no other purpose than interfere with someones life so you can have a job. Our phones are behind the curve and greedy controlling service providers make our experience "less".

DUDE you know what, my bad, look I have been hearing alot about POS people acting as if they are better then us (sprint users). I'm personally am tired of it, 1st Sprint ks for the getting, 2nd people can't afford iPhones because their poor. BUT once sprint gets the iPhone at a better rate for cell phone service, those same people try to use another excuse to bash android users. I'm tired of fake ass people, i can't help it i get more use out of my 14 month old HTC evo 4g with better plans then those who pay more money and use a different phone other then android. I even tether my ps3 and TiVo box with my evo and still manage to only hit 5gb a month. I use my service to its full potential in which i pay for. Sprint has the bandwidth to provide a network for unlimited data that can handle all the extra trafiic. If people have a problem with how i use my services i pay for then that's just to bad.

Sprints iPhone will only work on their slow ass 3G network. It's CDMA so no simultaneous voice/data. No sim card,so if u have two phones on sprint only one can be used without calling in to activate/deactivate. Puuulease I'll stick with ATT. I'll have the iPhone 4,galaxy s2,and iPhone 5 jus pop n the sim,and roll.

I applaud sprint for the year they have had for there customers. We have all the best dualcore devices on the market. EVO 3D, PHOTON 4G, SAMSUNG EPIC TOUCH 4G, HTC HERO 4G, and will close with the IPHONE 4S AND NEW IPHONE 5. Definitely a great year..

Go troll some place else DV-"iphad fanboy"...your comments make it completely obvious you know nothing about android...random reboots?...lol. Android will always be ahead of Apple because of AOSP...with multiple carriers constantly in comp to better their phones as opposed to Apple's once a year release to all the apple drones who blindly buy the lame upgrade they trot out each year. Go back the apple store and hang out with all your "reeeeally cool emo apple friends" and pat yourselves on the back for overpaying for an inferior product. But hey, at least you think your phone makes you look cool...you can be a legend in your own mind....lol. Apple lol.
