re: Sprint Beefs Up Network For iPhone
I am a Sprint iPhone 4S customer and can attest to Sprint's quick reaction to the data speed issue. I had an alert show up yesterday on my Online account letting me know of planned system upgrades in my area, by tower, which provided details on exactly what type of upgrade was coming, and by when.

Where I live, Sprint 3G coverage is great. I haven't had any data speed issues at all on my unlimited 3G plan. When I flew through Chicago O'Hare, the iPhone was barely useable (data wise). No telling how many other Sprint customers were saturating the cell tower by the airport, but it was painfully obvious that there wasn't enough cell bandwidth to go around.

I hope they are quick to upgrade their network to keep up with the data demand of the iPhone. I replaced my Android phone with the 4S and just ordered a 4S for another line on my account, replacing another Android device.

No cell carrier is perfect, but Sprint is trying really hard to stay relevant in the U.S. cell phone market, and I am a satisfied customer of their service.
