    Yeah in 3G network, that's why when the next iPhone rolls out with LTE sprint will have most cities and states with LTE network, at this moment only few current cities have it since the 15th and they actually did a freaking good job with it by hitting 7mbps-30mbps down and 4-18mbps up. But when whole nation has it then it'll still probably hit the 20mbps peak which is still good.

    Looks like once this facetime charge hits, jailbreaking will be even more rampant so that people can delete the carrier's control over it.

    if skype's charge is lower... then i would rather say hello to skype again than pay higher rates for the same service. I know FT is better... but id like better keep some of my pennies.

    It's not really poor, it's just their 3G network is slow compared to their WiMAX and LTE network. If you can be patient and get the next gen iPhone then you'll be happy with sprints new upgraded LTE network(varies by states who will have it by then) sprint.com/lte will show you their network differences of down,upload, and the peak speed, also you can be notify when LTE rolls out in your area to.
