How can they afford this? I'm no technophile, but apparently they use wifi networks whenever available to mitigate network costs. The rest of the time they are part of the Sprint network. You have to agree to connect at least one wireless network to the phone, which for me is not a problem as even my current phone with AT&T is connected to my home wireless network. They also reserve the right to cancel your account if you are too heavy a user, but I read that you can use up to 550 minutes, send 150 texts and transmit 300 mg of data (all while being OFF the wireless networks) before you cross the line, and even when you cross the line you are given ample warnings. I don't use that now so no problems there.

I'll keep everyone posted on when I receive my phone and how easy it is to get started.
