Could be dependent on if the area you're in has been upgraded TO rev A? That's all I can think of..

Rural MN here, if it was network based, I would think you would have a better network than I.

Dunno, maybe they sent some that weren't rev A (mine says 0 too) so who knows. Some say 'with google' on the back too (mine doesnt), so maybe that's a factor? (again, pullin ideas outta my rear end)

Wouldn't be surprised then if those ones are different in some way (perhaps rev A).

My doesn't say "with google"

But I ordered one from the warehouse to thinking i wouldn't get one at the store. I just looked at the one from the warehouse and it says "with google"

So with google = rev A

I would hope sprint would not falsely sell a phone label it as Rev A and then ship out "with google" models that are upgraded over non "with google" models. It seems alil piss poor to me.
