Doesn't VZW work the best overall in and around Chicago? There really only seems to be a select few places in this country where at&t works better than VZW with overall reception.

In your current scenario, I think it's worth it to switch providers to get the Note. It's simply that great of a device. Although it seems like many current Sprint-ers are holding out hope that Sprint will get it too.
Back in June 2010 when my at&t contract expired, I came awefully close to switching to Sprint just for the EVO. But then I had enough people talk me out of it...citing the slow data speeds and rather spotty reception (esp indoors).

hey Wase!!!

I just came over from the epic touch too...really digging this note! putting my old touch in my hand now feels like a baby compared to this bad boy. dont know if I could go back to a smaller phone now.

But, having said that, I miss the guys over there on the threads a lot. Especially team noctunal. But, there are some good dudes here too. Im just getting my feelers out now. I am running ICS which seems pretty good.

I came over for this phone and my sprint service was a joke. so, its the Note for me!

hope to see you around!

Hey man!

I wanted the Note since the first day it came out, and like someone said, a lot of Sprint folks, myself included, have been hoping that Sprint would jump on this phone, so it was an easy decision to switch to it; I am picking up mine this morning at Best Buy, and my wife and son are getting them too!
I'm sure there are some great dev's here too, and, more to follow as this phone gets more popular. I'll probably leave it stock for a week or 2, just to get used to it before rooting; plus, I only have Mac machines at home, and I haven't seen an "official" rooting method for mac, but I assume its probably the same as it was for the E4GT.
My sprint service has been fine in my house, between wifi and having an AirRave, but, anywhere else, the 3g service is pathetic, the 4g/Wimax is non existent inside of a house, and, frankly, the awe sum size and screen of this Note is just spectacular!
Someone asked if Verizon wasn't a better service choice than ATT; well, I had a horrible experience with Verizon 2 years ago, and I almost had to sue them to get a refund on stuff they charged me for that they shouldn't have, so we refuse to do business with them.
A lot of folks have said how much ATT has improved their service in the Chicago area, so I am hoping that is true..nothing could be as bad as getting 100kb download speeds with Sprint!!

So I was in the market to get a PMP device & figured if I'm going to spend that much $200-400 range, why not get a cheap phone that has better specs that the new Samsung Galaxy Player 70 plus. In a nutshell, I was able to find a hella cheap Epic 4G Touch to be my PMP. Playing games on it is so hard due to the small screen & being used to the Note's big screen.

I came from the EVO myself but my wife had the EPIC 4g, the epic was okay.. The EVO was awesome as far as developer support. But even that didn't makeup for the horrible service issues we constantly encountered. Where I'm at (New Mexico) sprint absolutely sucks for service. I for out of both contracts ETF free because of how bad the service was and they knew how bad it was.

I'm currently with the Note and my wife picked up the Skyrocket both on AT&T. The bill is a little ( <-lol ) higher but overall the (way) better service and device is worth it for me.

Screw Sprint, I am tired of them. I just joined with them in January and got the Epic4g Touch. I love that phone, but I can't stand Sprints data speeds. Sold it used this morning on Ebay for 320 bucks (included 3 extra batteries and charger). Paid 230 for the Note on Amazon Wireless. I am more than happy to pay the EFT to be done with Sprint.

I just came over from sprint too. I had and still have the og epic 4g. And while I love the "unlimited data" and liked that phone, I was out of contract. It was quite a eye opener when the ATT Rep told me the idea of unlimited data is great, but it isn't truly unlimited due to horrible data speeds. That's how they throttle you.

Now I have got the note and am not looking back. (First post in the note forum!!!)
