What are US networks like? What are they currently on, 5G or something?

Never heard of Sprint, only AT&T and Verizon, guessing they are the network leaders?

I can't get reliable 3G or 4G yet. This is my first time with a data plan and even when in Chicago the 3G/4G connections were iffy. I was at a hospital complex with a good WiFi signal.

Sprint is a big game player here. Problem was for a long time they didn't worry about the smaller markets, that doesn't work in today's world, you need to cover every nook and cranny.

AT&T and Verizon were the same way. Verizon around my area is still spotty on their coverage. My EX has to switch too and talked to a friend of ours who works as a trainer for Verizon (she goes around the US training employees at stores on the new products) and she recommended my EX not go to Verizon since coverage is bad in our area of our state. Go three miles south and all is okay, cross the state line into Michigan and the signals are far and few until you get around the big cities.

Those companies offered more plans and phone options since they stayed in the big market areas, but smaller companies like US Cellular offered superior coverage and more reliable service. They could not offer as good a deal on phones though and usually had fewer plan options. Odd how that worked out, but as I said, things have changed and the big companies are having to cover areas they ignored before. The big population markets are saturated and the only area to expand in is the areas ignored before.

We find good service we are very loyal.

Right you are. I'm quite liking it thus far.

The real test will be whether the GPS works next week in Beijing or not!

Unfortunately I have had to let my main system go as I really needed to buy a laptop for a upcoming course that I'm going on..

The only thing that lets this system down is the low res screen, but for gaming on the go its fine and when I'm back home I can just run a 23" 1080p monitor of it..

I have also installed a 120gb sammy 840 into the 2nd hard drive bay

My old phone died so had to get a replacement and am very happy with it, even though i got the black one, the white one reminds me of EVE from Wall-E.
And the head set for £90 i thought was a steal as my old xbox headphones are good and all but they dont have a mic i can connect, plus it goes with my mouse and Keyboard nothing wrong with continuity through accessories

And shaun if you got the phone for its water proofing look up nano coating for phones, can have any phone you like with the same waterproofness

They do waterproof coating? O.o It's okay, I really like the Xperia Z. Sony have added some nice touches of their own to Android.

I've not bought anything since I don't think. Bills doesn't count lol. Saving up the pennies for a motorbike now. That'll be next year though, just passed my car test last Tuesday, and already got my motorbike theory book delivered.
