Sprint Evo 4G
I'm seriously considering it as I pay 250/mo with AT&T service 2 iPhones, 1 Blackberry & a regular flip phone.
I found out I can use a friends discount so I can get 25% off monthly service meaning I'd be paying like 140/month.
It's going to be sick but I'll hang around to see what iPhone 4th gen has in store. I have a feeling it won't be anything worth staying for but I'm optimistic. Anyone considering jumping ship?
BTW that price is after my supposed discount. Imagine if I didn't have one. By the way I work for AT&T.

Great news guys. I've made up my mind and I'll be bringing all 4 of my lines to Sprint. I'm pretty sure the new iPhone isn't going to be anything crazy so I'm throwing in the towel. I love the iPhone but as previously stated I'm just tired with all the restrictions and lockdowns.
I'm going to pre-order 2 Evo 4Gs at Radioshack tomorrow. If you pre-order you have to put down $50/per phone. I would get $40 in store credit to use on accesories ($20/per phone). I'm also going to buy something small and fill out the survey so I can get a $10 coupon to use also.
With my credit I'll buy an iGo tip or another USB (can never have too many) as I plan to go to Case-Mate to buy a nice case. After I port my numbers from AT&T I have 72 hours from the port in activation to go to Sprint Number Porting Credit Application and request a $100 credit per line. I'd have to keep my service for 3 months to get the $400 credit applied to my bill just for porting.
I just wanted to fill you in on the procedure in case any of you guys are thinking of leaving the iPhone. Pre-Order at Radioshack not Best Buy because of the extra store credits you can receive.
By the way DO NOT sell Radioshack your old phones because you won't get that much for them to use as store credit. You're better off selling your old equipment on eBay and hopefully bank enough to pay for 2 - 3 months of service. By the way if you work at Bank of America or have a family/friend you can save 36% with Sprint off the total bill!
I will always love and appreciate my iPhone and ModmyI but I've had enough of the restrictions.

I'm with ya buddy. Bye bye iPhone. I'll probably still lurk. Bunch of friends have iPhones and will probably get the new one. I like to keep up with current tech too."Thanks" button. Learn it. Use it. Love it.

Yeah dude I'll hang around here. I still love the iPhone and I know when I switch phones with my bad luck an awesome app will drop and make me want to choke myself for switching.
I'm just tired of all the restrictions and minimal updates each year. I mean honestly if that prototype iPhone that leaked is the final version then it's hideous. I'm pretty sure it would grow on me but that seam is so ugly and the squared shape is something new.
I'm in school right now taking my last marketing final and then I'm off the Radioshack to preorder. If any of you guys are going that route make sure you read my above post on the steps.
@ z3r01 The hotspot feature will cost you $29.99/mo. You'd probably have to wait a week or so until they root the phone and then you can hack your way into the free hotspot capability.

Totally not worth it I dont think. I switched to the HD2 cuz Im on Tmo just so I can have 3G access. Im back on my iPhone now. That stupid Windows Mobile phone couldnt entertain me for longer than a week. Ive had my iphone for a year and a half. Point is, I used to think apps are not what makes a phone great. Well even with that gorgeous 4.3 inch screen, 5mpx camera, and 3G speeds, it wasnt even close to being as fun as my iphone. I like the apps and I dont care if I have a 2 mpx camera without flash.
just my opinion. Im just glad I didnt sell off my iphone.

Windows Mobile sucks I would leave too. I'll still keep my iPhone but the cost effective route would be Sprint. AT&T charges out the *** as it is.
By the way I don't understand the hype with WP7. The UI is hideous and everyone is drooling over it without even proper specs or hardware announced.

Just pre-ordered 2 Evo 4G's. I threatened my GF with her life if she drops and breaks the phone. I couldn't talk her into getting a Blackberry or another simple phone. Can't wait and I'm number 2 in line at that Radioshack. I filled out 2 surveys for $10 off. I have $20 to play with when I pick up my phones. It's going to be hard to leave the iPhone but oh well.
***By the way anyone want to buy my iPhone 3G 3.1.3 with a Mophie Juice Pack (Red). Shoot me an offer and I only use Paypal and ship to USA only.
I'll just keep one iPhone instead of two so make some offers.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.

The new 5MP camera and LED flash is going to be magical on the new iPhone. I'm just pissed that it takes them this long to incorporate features that have been on phones for almost a decade. It's not even the cost because it cost them cents to put those components into the new device. We already see that the new iPhone is smaller than the current 3GS so it wasn't a space issue.
I'll let you guys know how Sprint turns out.Android user suffering from iPhone withdraw.
