I don't think this phone has Wi-Fi. Thats a deal breaker for me. Sprint has a big problem with Wi-Fi I think, they currently only sell 1 phone (HTC Mogul, $500) that has built in Wi-Fi. If this phone had Wi-Fi, I would probably get it. Since I'm at UIC for 8-10 hours a day, Wi-Fi is important since it allows me to get internet without having to pay $30/month for the Sprint data plan (also to expensive IMO). I still don't like touch screen keyboards. The one in the iPhone sucks, its a real pain to use. When I got my BlackBerry, I was able to type with the keyboard pretty well as soon as I got it. My friend has an iPhone which I've used and it is a real pain to use the keyboard. If the keyboard on the Instinct is anything like the iPhone, it is going to be a problem. I do however like the internet browser. The internet browser in the iPhone is great, other phones like the BlackBerry and Windows Mobile phones suck. Looks like the Instinct will have a similar browser so that should be good as well. I'd like to use it and see how it is.
In motorcycle terms, that's like taking your Ducati to a dealer for service, and they hand you back a 1979 backfiring Honda 400 Hawk.. because after all, a bike is a bike.
