Actually can someone grab that .apk for the clock/weather widget I'm looking at?
I would enjoy that.
I think not being able to change sim is a problem for a lot of people.
And I threw my last HW keyboard phone off my house and watched it get run over by cars I hated it so much.
But again that widget is cool. Someone get it please

It would be a excellent phone if it wasent for the three major factors I see. 1) The qwerty keyboard, 2) no removable battery and 3) no removable sim card.
so that the consumer has the choice what carrier to use (both internationally and domestic).
Verizon Gives Motorola LTE Razrs Their GSM Wings
much like the photon, developers have managed to unlock GSM for US in these verizon gsm LTE phones.
Photon Q's locked Sim is all about limiting consumer's choice and making the phone useless on a non-Sprint (or sprint affiliated) network.
as for your example of "losing the LTE card", sim cards are inexpensive. The convenience of an unlocked SIM is far greater than the costs of a replacement SIM. Sprint stands to gain far more money (through exorbitant calling rates) on a sim locked phone than they stand to gain (or have gained in the past) from replacement sim cards.
Sprint put the bottom dollar ahead of the consumer when designing this phone, and that mentality is going to end up hurting their bottom dollar (due to decreased sales).
I'm assuming he thinks I only like the device because i work for sprint, and not because i intend to OWN the device.
