Hmm, you're doing or missing something because in the last week or so there have been about five or ten people with close to the same issue (HELP, I'M BRICKED, MY LIFE IS OVER...etc.) and we've mangaged to get them all work. I've posted dozens of replies to those people and they've been able to get up and running following others and my advice(s).
Spend some time and go through the first few pages of the Q&A, Help forum and read all the way through some of the similar posts. Then try what is suggested in them.
You will resolve your issue. IF you don't, just warranty your phone or grab an iPhone.

I broke down and stopped into Sprint tonight. I had tried the process on 3 different PC's and still no luck. They tried to flash it and weren't able to as well. The woman in the store told me they could not exchange it because they do not have the phone yet. I was confused by this. The phone that I have has "Sprint Spark" on it which is a tri-band phone and the stores do not have it yet. My company has a large plan with Sprint and we get our phones shipped directly to us. She said I would have to have my procurement person request a new phone for me. My model is actually SPH-L720T. My guess is that this was causing my issues.

Thank you to you all who tried to help out.

That would be the problem.

Just wasn't making any sense to me up until then. I've done numerous phones and never had any issue before so I was just baffled.

Trying to find a MK5 rom that will download. Working on one now that is pulling in at < 200 KB/s.

I didn't think XDA had a forum up yet for SPH-L720T.
