Hey there forum, I just got the newest Consumer Reports and I was surprised to find a small segment about Sprint's Spark. I personally don't know much about it but I wanted to offer up their point of view.

That talks about simultaneous voice/data. And yes, that's a HUGE drawback. I have a VZW phone for work and I use that all the time.

I've heard its only like this for now until sprint would launch the new 800 band. Don't know if its 100% true.

If the article comments are accurate, then per the FCC it will be after 2/2016 before sprint is using 800MHz for data.
