    I have sprint right now but I can't decide whether or not to stay with sprint and get the Evo or switch to ATT and get the iPhone I've always been wanting.

    Anyone have any thoughts??

    With all the current issues the iPhone is having, both the older models and the 4, I would go for the Evo, especially since you're with Sprint already. I've been an iPhone owner since it came out, been happy with it most of the time but lately, I have to say it sucks. The new OS 4 pretty much brings the older models to a crawl and I'm sure you've heard all the issues the iPhone 4 is having. Not to mention the AT&T side of things sucks as well. Their new price plans and terrible service. Check in on CNET and other review sites to see how the two phones compare.

    A few for you:

    Cost: Even with the $10 surcharge for 4G data, Sprint plans will still be significantly cheaper than ATT.

    Unlimited Data: ATT has discontinued unlimited data. Compare the plans and your data usage to see if this helps or hurts you.

    Your tech savvy level: Android is a fast moving beast. The app market is not monitored like the Apple App store. If you're cool with, or indeed like the fact that Android 2.1 is already great and that EVO will get 2.2 (Froyo) in a couple months and that applications may be seriously flaky, requiring extra review time or just experimenting, go Android.
    If you like to have things "handled" or sanitzed for you so they "just work" go iPhone.

    EVO is a beast. Beware it's battery usage but it's an amazing phone and I can't wait to have one and turn it into a 4G wireless hotspot in my house! (Now I've blown my cover, yes, I'm an android fan.)

    All that said, I'm pushing my mom to get an iPhone. She doesn't need to be confused by stuff and will freak out if presented with too many options. Apple will hold her hand and make her do it their way. Easy. ;-)

    Is MD a 4G zone?

    I thought the 4G was limited to mostly cities and the west coast.

    Sprint is posting the release of the 4G zones.

    As of now some areas around Baltimore appear to have 4G coverage.

    First I want to say the HTC HD2 (T-Mobile) is a complete piece of shit. I have been through three in the last month. There are so many problems that I don't want to take the time to list all of them but here are a few. These problems have all shown up with all three phones.

    1) Dropped calls, its a miracle for a call to stay connected more than three minutes and this is in places where I have never had connection problems with this company. It that is not bad enough it is difficult to get a connection that is strong enough to make/receive a call/text in the first place.

    2)Battery life is non-existant; I mean three-hours on a full charge and that is with wi-fi, all updates, just about anything that could be battery draining turned off.

    3)It decides the main password is not accurate out of the blue when I know I am entering it correctly.

    4) I have to take the battery out several times a day (when not charging) and replace it and it then sometimes takes up to ten minutes to reactivate so I can use the phone.

    5)All of these are bad enough but the one that is really bad; it has is a touch-screen so I do not allow my fingers to touch the screen or get it too close to my face when using the phone but it still will place a caller on hold (if I am lucky enough to be on a call long enough) and randomly places calls to people from my contacts book; because of this I can't use the phone after about 9pm because there are people (clients, older family, etc) that I don't want to call late at night for no reason.

    T-Mobile replaced the three lemmons under warranty and I am waiting for a Samsung Vibrant which is an Android phone. I have never used I-Phone nor one that is Android based. I would like to know if anyone on here has any tips on using this phone, getting the most out of it and any aps which you have found to be very useful which work properly.

    I really think the problem with the HTC HD2 is the fact that it is windows based; there seem to be a lot of clitches with it.

    One other thing, I have basically been without a phone for the last ten days because the most recent one just does not work. I literally have to be standing in a window at my house to use the phone because there is no connection any other place in the house. It is not much better other places. Do you think I would be out of place to ask T-Mobile to credit me for this time even though they have replaced the phones? I have been with T-Mobile for eight years and this is the first real problem.

    Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks guys!
