    Re: Sprint Ahead >>>>>>

    Today was unofficially the release date, however good 'ol Sprint is behind once again. The 8830's are available, but when we go to order one, or activate for that matter, the item id wont go through.

    Im hoping tomorrow I can have this bad boy up and running.

    The speeds on the 8830 should be the same as the 8703e and 7130, as they are all on REV0. The 8830 does have a better processor, so that may help give better results.

    Do you have Alltel in your area? Sprint has a data roaming agreement (for lack of a better name) with them where they don't have RevA yet to get a higher data rate. I keep my cell phone on REV0 to keep my battery from draining too fast. I've got the 7100i from Nextel, plan plan to switch to the 8830 asap.

    The only true REV A phone that Sprint has on the market currently is the PPC-6800. You can't switch between REV 0 and A at will. This is a network configuration that only Sprint can activate when their REV A system is fully operational in a given area. Only REV A phones can utilize the REV A speeds since it is a hardware upgrade not a software one for the phones.

    So in essence- what exactly did you mean by what you said when you indicated that you keep your cell phone on REV0 to keep the battery from draining?

    All Sprint Wireless Aircards are REVA, I mean the ones we currently sell. As mentioned above only the 6800 is REVA.

    When you go into the DATA menu, there is a section to adjust EVDO settings. Your choices are CDMA, HDR, or Auto. I keep mine set at CDMA. If I want to get access to a fast network, I'm probably not going to do it from my RAZR.
