    From what I can come up with, it would be the expense of rolling it out. Phones made today for EVDO are built under the Rev 0 or Rev A standard. That is where the "1X" comes from on the phone. It stands for 1 carrier. Phones aren't designed to support the 2X (2 carrier), 3X (3 carrier) standards and it would be too much time and cost for a temporary upgrade. The Rev C will be the easiest when it becomes available.

    yeah i thought about that too, i guess saving that money and putting it in to LTE is the way to go, seems most cost effective at the moment

    So why can't we have a world-wide standard for cell phones already? Is is because big corps don't want to lose money or something?

    I don't quite understand this.

    The only things that matter = do you like your carrier, phone and service?

    If you answer yes then everything else is jibberish being argued by people who have zero lives...........
    Wow... just wow. Comments like this really don't belong in this discussion. Sorry, I just had to point out this blatantly ignorant and irrelevant statement.
    BB Wishlist:
    -Gmail BIS integration with an effective 2-way read/unread sync solution.
    -More capable integrated alarm.

    One thing I have noticed with AT&T is I can text and talk on the blackberry unlike the other AT&T phones. Is this also the case with other carriers? Its kinda like 3g. Here in Hawaii AT&T is faster than Verizon and Sprint but slower than some of the other speed tests around the country. Anyone know why that is?

    For how long will Verizon and Sprint be the last ones.

    I knew it was a matter of time.
    I don't think they will ever sell out to gsm, because they just plain work in areas in America where gsm just has no signal at all

    They wouldn't ''sell out'' and start using GSM towers. It would make sense that they will be ''changing'' over and using the current towers which they have.

    I was waiting for your two cents.... Hahaha so you're saying just like Metric system - the US is once again stubbornly lagging behind?
    Hey I just noticed the word lagging has 3G's in it. Wish I had 3G's
    Lol

    yeah, moving them over to LTE towers is what there gonna do, why take down a nationwide foot print to start a new one? makes little sence to me>
