    Does anyone have this on their phone? I was looking into adding this to my phone if I switch over to Sprint. How is the coverage/quality? Are you generally happy with it or does it suck? Any feedback would be helpful as info has not been easy to find on the service.

    I don't have it. I have AT&T's version, which is pretty good. I watch a lot of tv on my phone, but the display on my phone is small and kind of sucks. As for Sprint, I was visiting my mother, showing off my phone and how I could watch tv on it, she whipped out a Palm Pre out of her purse and put on SprintTV. It was amazing. Way better than what I have. The Pre's screen is a lot bigger and clearer than what I have. It looked like a small Hi Def TV. I say go for it, just get a phone with a good display.

    Is there any way to connect the phone to a laptop and watch it on a bigger screen? I would think there would be an app for that. My laptop is dual screened to a 19 inch flat screen TV. This could be pretty sweet.

    It would seem to me they would have to make some sort of hardware connection to the tv or laptop to make that happen. It would be more do-able if Sprint released a PC app to catch the SprintTv stream.

    The service on AT&T that I have, CV video, really isn't worth the effort blowing up. It would be pretty pixelated.

    I hadn't thought about a reduced resolution on the smaller screen. Makes sense. There is a USB connector for most phones. Probably easier to just stream off the net. I was hoping to get around that pesky 5G limit.

    On some of the phones with the larger display, the picture looks pretty amazing. It's about 5 inches across. Small, but it wouldn't take long to get used to, especially if the phone is only an arm length away. My next phone will have a larger screen. Mine is only about an inch and a half wide.

    Ive been looking at the I4s through Sprint if thats where I end up switching to them. They sell adaptor cables to hook your Iphone to your flat screen tv, So what ever is on your phone is on your tv.
