This does not make me feel good about using Sprint. I was one of the first EVO 4G customers and 1.5 years later, though my phone is nearly obsolete, it’s still a workhorse and I really love the 4G coverage in Honolulu.
However, to think that Sprint might be logging nearly everything I do on my phone does not leave me with a very “warm and fuzzy” feeling inside. Will be interesting to see how this story develops. Could a class-action lawsuit come of this?

I know many Sprint customers who wanted an iPhone will be happy to know that they can have their unlimited cake for $79.99/mo. This includes 450 minutes. I’ve got a similar plan on Sprint (for my EVO 4G) and because this plan (of mine) has unlimited mobile to mobile minutes AND most of my phone calls are to other mobile phones, I’m usually way under my limit every month.

Please contact Sprint for more details as to why this cannot be enabled.”
Worse yet, other Hawaii …

I just got my email from Google today announcing that Sprint and Google voice has been integrated. This *could* meant that Hawaii phone numbers, previously denied 808 area codes (from what I understand, due to Hawaii regulations) might actually see their Sprint numbers (yes, 808 ones) work with Google voice. I have too much on my plate to play with this during the day but tonight is another story. Stay tuned. I will attempt to activate Google Voice on my Sprint EVO 4G phone and will report on the …

For those of who want the “pure” Android experience, the Nexus S 4G will connect to Sprint’s WiMax network. I have the Sprint EVO 4G and though I’m very satisfied with the phone and use the 4G WiMax network often, I will probably take a very, very serious look at Verizon’s LTE network next year when my Sprint contract ends. Why? While I love the WiMax network, it’s really a second network that you have to turn on and off. It’s almost like wifi. I want …
