Hope it works, but history hasn't been kind to these types of ventures. Plus, if I heard correctly, they're using Sprint's 4G network and that might not work well enough for a lot of people.

I'd like to try it if it would firmly register as an extended middle finger to the Big Two carriers.

I realize that they are in beta/startup mode, but ONLY serving 6 Midwestern cities!?!?

Nothing within 150 miles of me with these guys, for now

$10/GB you may be better off just going directly to Clear and getting a puck. 1500/500 for $35 unlimited or 3-6Mb/1Mb (they say 3-6 down but I usually get 6-12 down) for $50 unlimited. And unlike everyone else, unlimited means unlimited. I do nearly 200GB/mo with Clear.

Even if you don't use much data this isn't a good deal IMO. Problem is with iPhone you already are forced to pay for a data plan so you end up paying twice unless you unlock and go with a different carrier in which case you might as well do Straight Talk for $45, voice/txt/data


not quite right
I'm not cool enough to be a Mac person

I signed up for it. You don't have to get the case:

I got the Photon. It's supposed to arrive Oct 8.

My reasoning is that I can use it for my iPad, my PS Vita, and my iPhone if I need faster data when the hated AT&T is throttling me.
