Q. In your instinct vs iphone comparison you said with the Instinct you can download 'over the air' and the iphone you cannot. what does that mean and what does it mean to me in a practical sense? Also, what other limitations would this feature, or lack of the feature, cause?

A. Over the Air downloading means that you can purchase and download songs and video directly to the phone using your cellular connection.  Apple limits iPhones to only being able to purchase songs from iTunes via WiFi, while Instinct is capable of purchasing songs from the Sprint Music Store over EV-DO (cellular connection).  So the practical implication is that if you want to shop for music on your phone, you'll have to be connected to WiFi in order to do it from an iPhone.  Thanks for the message
