Thanks for the confirmation about Sprint’s service here, Jake. I had a feeling that life out here in this “geographically undesirable” location (see entry above) wouldn’t allow for the service I want.
And BT, I’ll definitely keep you posted on my purchase, once it happens. Of course, the new iPods are making me drool — but it’s either a cell phone with a proper antenna or an mp3 player for me, for the time being. Sigh.
