I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

    Wait… So you guys wrote a separate article for Verizon and T-Mobile when they made changes to our contract and said everyone should jump ship, but when it comes to the chance of jumping ship from sprint you hide it in an Android Overload… I smell a conspiracy o_O

      1. Did you just comment your own post? And yeah, I’d write it up for Sprint but I mean, c’mon. Who wants out of that contract? xD

      2. Sprint let me out of my contract early when they unilaterally changed the terms by taking away my company discount on ALL extra lines. I said, “Big deal. You want me to take my business to Verizon and pay more, AT&T and get lousy service, or T-Mobile and end up with AT&T. No thanks.
