    I have been bidding on a Colt Magnum Carry on Gunbroker this week. As the auction drew to a close today I just happened to be at a small fair with my sons. I was following the auction on my EVO 4G and as I tried to up my maximum bid with 1 minute and 15 seconds left on auction my 4G reception disappeared. By the time I got the phone switched over to 3G the auction was over and I was outbid by $10 by a new bidder. I am so bummed. At least I get to start looking for another one now...and the hunt is 90% of the fun. :)

    Have you had issues with your Evo? Mine freaks out on the regular, I have missed auctions on Ebay due to it. It won't register my touch sometimes or when I click on x screen or message it will go to something else.

    My company uses Sprint for their cell phones, and I rarely use it. Service sucks, network is slow when you're trying to use the web. Verizon all the way. Rule the air!

    Well, if you can PROVE that you would have won it then maybe you have a complaint, but there's no way to know if your bid would have actually won.

    i have bid many times on different sites-- i always watch the bidding to see how it goes, then i try to pull up a similar pistol --or the same one(or item) to see what it went for, and at the last ten min. of auction i put my bid in for that amount --or as much as i'm willing to spend,then let the proxy system take over--its up to the next bidder to figure out what you bid--and that can take time !! all you have to beat is the high bid ,not what your proxy is-----

    my thoughts only.....steven

    I was thrilled by the reception I got with my Verizon service. However, their customer service sucked every time I needed it. The reception I got with my Sprint service isn't near as good, however they, at least so far, have not been jack-asses when I've needed customer service. Catch-22. Save the bombardier...
