And I still fail to understand what you need such huge screens for on a phone?
For some, smartphones are less about being "phones" and more about being personal computing devices. I suspect I use less than 150 minutes a month on my cell phone - or basically, I rarely use it as a phone. For everything else, however... from email, to web browsing, to watching movies, to using apps, reading PDFs, and more other uses than I need to list here, more screen real estate is better. The problem you may have is inherent in your question... that you don't understand the why a screen needs to be large on a phone. Just try to realize that we all use these devices differently. More often than not I hear or read about people saying once they went to a larger screen they could not go back to a smaller one. At least with Android we have a choice, and that's a good thing. No one tried to tell us that our preferred phone needed to be a certain size or didn't need other options or features.

The issue is that you have device that isn't good for anything. It's too big to be a phone and too small for any real work.
My issue is that I can't seem to find a really good smart phone with 4.0'' screen or smaller besides the iPhone and it doesn't look like there are many of those in the pipeline.
Be careful on virgin mobile - you can't use a phone on their $35/mo plans (idk if you can use your own phone on any of their plans) unless you buy the phone from them, and then if you drop them, you have a really expensive brick, since the phone you bought can't be unlocked and used anywhere else. imho, it's b.s. for virgin mobile to claim you can 'cancel any time', when in reality, who's going to cancel and eat the cost of a $300+ phone a month or 2 into the service? locking the network negates the entire point of offering a no contract plan. At least if I spend big cash on an unlocked phone to use on a prepaid network, if I decide I hate that network, I can sell the phone on fleabay or whatever.
Thanks for the info - thats dissapointing that you cant even take the phone to another carrier!
