    I have a Samsung Galaxy S, it's nice but has some annoying bugs due to ATT's crapware…

  2. I want a google branded Nexus to avoid the crapware that comes on most phones now days

    Good call, I wish I had done that when I was phone shopping.

  4. Well, the mobile phone guru at Pacific has used Sprint for the past 3 or 4 years and says it's fantastic (Pacific has Verizon and AT&T employee plans, so he has extensive experience with the major carriers). Plus, cheap unlimited data plans – Verizon and AT&T are both $30/month for 2gb (with some higher priced/higher bandwidth options, of course). I'd like to switch over to Sprint, personally.

  5. Wonder how much of a PITA it is to port my number over. I guess one way to find out.

  6. Would you like me to ask him his opinion regarding Android phones (recommended ones, the ones to avoid, etc.)? He's always evaluating new smart phones to determine whether or not we should add support for them, so he's probably used 90% of them.

  7. My friend at google said to get the Nexus branded one because thats the one thats controlled by google. Everyone else seems to agree that non-google android phones are loaded with unremovable crap.

    They said to spend the money and get a good one, which is the Nexus S (from what I heard).

  8. I moved from Sprint to T-Mobile a few years ago, no problem keeping my # and contacts. I am likely going to switch back, ironically, when the T-mobile buyout goes through because AT&T's is horrifically bad in San Francisco. And also so that I can have the Nexus S. I sat next to a guy with one on a plane and we compared notes, he was super happy with his.

  9. I've read some bad reviews about dropped calls, horrible data, etc. I dont know if those have been fixed in any updates, but it sorta makes me leery.

  10. Reviews on the phone, or on Sprint's service?

  11. The phone itself. Mostly the ones on sprint's website (which I think are filled with idiots, so I take it with a grain of salt)

  12. Interesting. I'd continue to research. The guy I talked to was a google employee, so ya know… I'd take it with a grain of salt. I think it's also important to remember that pretty much all smartphones have issues now and then. I've been using a Nexus 1 since it came out, and it's rebooted itself once (lost all my data but then spent an hour downloading it from the server and was fine afterwards with nothing lost), and I've had the very occasional dropped call. Most of my issues have been trying to talk to someone with an Iphone, because those things blow.

  13. Matt Anglin says:

    The only reason I stay with ATT is my grandfathered unlimited data plan. I don't relish the idea of going over my data limit and paying a huge cell phone bill.

  14. I've got a cheezer Optimus V from Virgin Mobil. Does everything I need it to do, but you're probably looking for something a little more powerful. Can't beat the plan though. $25/mo, Unl. Text, Unl. Data, 300 Anytime minutes
