Also keep in mind they're network is VERY slow in a majority of their areas. Nobody will put up with that, even if it is unlimited.
Sprint 3G is slow but 4G is still good, I'm getting 6-8Mbps and up to 12Mbps - unlimited. Good enough for me and I'm using 6-8GB/month, so VZW/ATT are out. A smartphone really only needs 3-4Mbps if that. Sprint stated they will continue unlimited with LTE. Doesn't look like they'll stop anytime soon as it's the only tool they have left.
If you are in a Sprint 4G area, it is still worth considering, especially since LTE will have better coverage (and building penetration) than their WiMAX.
