Ok but is there really a server in Tijuana that I would be using? lol
I guess so! It says it is run by Cablemas, whoever that is.
Re: New phone for me
Why 2013? Is that when the 2-year contract with your girlfriend expires?
I was thinking about getting the Photon until I read about Sprint's future plans today. If they're really going to start rolling out LTE mid 2012, I may just wait. I'm not in a WiMax area (Clear stopped at the border of Queens and Nassu County), so all I'd be getting is a nicer phone and an extra $10/month on my bill.
My current phone's a little slow, but I could probably reflash it and remove some apps to take car of that. Also, waiting another year would get my wife and I on the same renewal schedule and if we choose to change carriers, we can do so together.

Well, I got the Photon Thursday night. And enjoying it a lot. It has everything that makes it a Moto, great RF & call quality.
Nice! Did you get the latest OTA firmware update that came out last week without any glitches? A lot of people were complaining about problems downloading/installing it or problems with data not working afterward.
My update worked great but it did take a while for my 3G and 4G data to begin working after the update.
Oh I had glitch! Couldn't get the update to take, kept failing. Thanks to XDA I was able to flash to a older ROM, and install a prior update OTA. Then the new update OTA went smoothly.
How are you guys liking your Photons after a few weeks?
Really liking it! The receiption (including 4G) & call quality are awesome. Menus, OS & apps are very responsive. GPS actually works. So much better then the Epic & Charge I had before. Also if I would of had this phone on my trip to Eugene in May, I would of never switched to Verizon.
Still enjoying mine as well! Like Budney said there's no lag when doing any of the functions which is nice. RF is great too.
