    I have a feeling there will be plenty of refugees heading to Sprint come September if the rumors are true. As a Sprint customer, I hope they are.

    Um, I think you've got that all backward. As a Sprint customer, I sincerely hope there are ZERO refugees! It's going to be bad enough when the iPhone goes to Sprint, we don't need any more network hogging than is necessary!

    Then again, I'm sure that Sprint will employ the same exact data tier system once Apple has their way with them. Luckily for me, I'm going to be grandfathered in to my current unlimited data package and have NO plans of EVER changing that for ANY iPhone. Love my EVO.

    While I loved my Evo, and now I love my Evo 3D, I do hope that Sprint gets the iPhone. I don't want them left in the dust. Being the nation's 3rd biggest carrier is cool as long as Sprint hangs around and I don't wake up to a Verizon acquisition one day. And I do agree with you, I could care less because I will never leave my unlimited plans with Sprint. Period.

    As big as the iPhone is, I don't think that the balance of Sprint's fate rests upon acquiring it. Then again, it doesn't matter. We all know they'll get it at some point.

    How are you enjoying the 3D? I have to admit.. 3D on a phone sounds plain stupid and gimmicky. I mean, how can it really be anything other than gimmicky ? I'm sure it's fast though.. especially if you get rid of all that 3D nonsense and root it etc...

    You're definitely right. Sprint will get it at one point. I do like the 3D, but the 3D aspect of it is ridiculous. I leave the device in 2D and I like it much more than the Evo 4G. Battery life is noticeably better thanks to an application added in that helps with power consumption greatly. I'm not a Sense fan, but I have to admit that Sense 3.0 is very, very good. I'm interested in the Photon though also. That phone looks very nice. Motorola normally has very good quality.

    If you haven't already, you should try GO! Launcher. It's by far the best launcher I've tried, and it's free. It beats the pants off of the paid ones IMHO. Quite the number of options and themes.

    Sorry guys.. didn't mean to hijack the thread. My bad.
