It's still called ROM because the new chips are EEPROM (Electronically Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory) Basically, there is a pin that either get's grounded or hot (voltage applied) that allows the writing of the chip, if this doesn't happen it's not writable. If I remember correctly, I haven't been in electronics school for over 10 years now....

When did they do that ? Tethering worked the last time I tried it but they don't provide an application for it, I use tetherbot when I need to. It's free and works fine for browsing http, but it wouldn't work to well for vpn or other services unless you can configure a proxy for it.

I have no coverage problems with Sprint and I travel regularly for work... What are you basing your opinion on exactly? I'm not saying that I never roam (and really, since most plans include free roaming, do you track when you roam ?) , just that I rarely have no service and when I am in a spot with no service, I can move 20 ft either direction and have service.

Thanks for calling me a redneck and accusing me of making baseless accusations. Nice try, however I'm a white Eastern European and an Engineer.

So because you're a white Eastern European Engineer you can't be a redneck? Well, I guess that depends on your definition of redneck, however, I know plenty of rednecks from all over the world. While I'm not saying you are, Location and Profession do not determine whether or not you are a redneck, if it did then profiling would be more appropriate in all cases. You don't think profiling is a good thing do you ?
