The jokes when Bono dies are going to rival Jacko's death.

Steve Jobs is that kind of guy to many people, and in the context of the online world, a context he helped establish, it does strike me as bad taste to make joke like that.

And no it doesnt make you a bad person. Just a person who tends to say arguably inappropriate things at times online.
That's all very reasonable. I just think the level of inappropriateness is obviously about 100x worse if you're talking about an actual family member/friend/ etc.

Either way, I don't want to be the guy to test your theory about Bono around these parts

Does anyone know how slower Sprint's network would be then AT&T? I'm switching from T-Mobile to get the new iPhone, and Sprint's unlimited data thing is really appealing. Any recommendations?

Hey Gump I am currently on Sprint. Their 3G service is ok, probably better than ATT. Here in SF ATT customers get a lot of dropped calls and I haven't had one on Sprint. It all depends on where you live and should check the coverage map to see the signal strength. But Sprints Unlimited plan is the best of all the carriers, but to be honest the speed the speed does not compare to verizon's.

I wonder if when Sprint gets their 4g up and going, if they will still be unlimited?

I've been very happy with Sprint. I have no idea how they compare, but in all of the cities I've traveled to, dropped calls have never been a problem. Their WiFi stick that we use doesn't seem to have as good of an antenna as my BB 9650 Bold, but the antenna in the new iPhone sounds impressive.

Thanks for the responses - I live in NYC, where AT&T service is known to be spotty, so this is a plus. Just another question for you Sprint users: does international roaming work well?

It costs, but it works. I've had no trouble in Canada [(Vancouver, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, Moncton(--little spotty)]. The little I used it over the summer for U2 in Canada only added about $30 to my bills total.

Australia, New Zealand, Beijing very few problems, but very big bills. Last time in NZ, the int'l rate was $3/minute That bill sucked.

That's great to know, thanks a lot. I'm really leaning towards Sprint. I'll have to decide in the next few hours, as I want to preorder the iPhone tomorrow.

Basically, I don't worry about using my Sprint phone in Canada, but anywhere else in the world if I needed to make more than a few, sporadic calls, I'll look to rent one locally. The price is just makes sense.
