    Do you think the IPhone will ever come to Sprint or all carriers?

    I think it will eventually but not in the short term (1-5 years),

    Verizone if they in fact get the iPhone next year will probably pay a great deal to Apple to keep the iPhone only on AT&T and Verizone's.

    it will keep Apple from having the market share that android does (yes I understand that we are talking handsets vs. OSs), But Apple has already demonstrated they can still make more money off of the (for want of a better expression) limited sales.

    From what I heard Wimax 2 will be updated by June of next year. Wimax is not bad, its a lot better then EDGE or god for bid IDEN for that matter. (I used to own an IDEN phone and it was a peace of ****. So glad Sprint is ditching that network in 2013.

    Plus its faster then 3G, and almost at wifi speeds.

    WIMAX is only legitimate when the conditions are perfect...i tested Clearwire in my area for about a year and it was the worst internet service i ever experienced (and we were in the top rated signal market for the test period)...thank god i had comcast too.

    WIMAX 2 at its core is only a signal boost and tower revamp...you'll still fall to the issues that plagued it before as it is very susceptible to geographic issues as well as other electronic interference.

    It's a FRACTION of high speed wifi connections, seeing under 10mbps at best and averaging 2-4mbps. WIMAX has a LONNNNNNNNNNNNG way to go before its a legitimate outlet for consistent and competitive high speed connection.
