He also keeps complaining about his iphone dropping calls, but could be his crappy AT&T connection.
Fair enough. And yeah, if you have AT&T or Sprint (in the Nashville area at least), you are just asking for dropped calls. Horrible coverage/service here. Verizon is king in Nashville.

Nope, I'm in London/Corbin, KY area. My Sprint is fine, even in the boonies I live in, I get good calls, and data rates.

its not bad, it just lacks a lot of the polish found in apple products. It is my first android device, although it runs a modified amazon version that requires you to get apps through the amazon android store, so this limits the amount of apps available. Theres no app for twitter, facebook, youtube, google maps, etc. Instead it relies on using the web browser for most things and that ends up being a laggier experience than the apps on my ipod touch. You can sideload android apps if you dl the .apk file and load them on your device, but the interfaces typically lack polish for the device with low resolution icons and such. Apps always run in the background eating up battery so you have to dl an app to manage tasks and kill processes to save battery. I got it mainly as an amazon prime streamer for the bedroom and it works fine for that purpose, although when initially buffering videos, it doesn't do any error correction so randomly screeches and messes up throughout the vid. 36mb down so shouldnt have problem, it just doesn't make sure the buffer is flawless. Its a good device for the price and I have fun playing with it but will probably sell it and get an ipad 3 if I feel like I want one
