Well, I have to say that in Des Moines, Sprint is best for me. Their high-speed network covers most of the city, and no one can beat nights beginning at 7 p.m.
Tried the BB Curve with TMo and AT&T and found their coverage both wanting compared with Sprint.
And about the East Coast: Last summer I was at a conference in Kerhonkson, NY, in the Catskills. Practically everyone there had Verizon. They didn't have coverage. I did with Sprint.

I put a Sprint 8130 next to my VZW 8130 - side by side - and everywhere I went VZW had a solid 4+ bars. Sprint was never over 3
I'm in the greater NYC area and coverage should not be a problem but there is a noticeable difference
Also, when I call VZW for cust care I get someone here in the US and I get answers. When I called Sprint it sounded like I was on the phone with a rep in India and if my problem didn't fall into something on their cue cards they were lost. I had to request a manager before I could get any response.
I returned the Sprint 8130 within my 30 day buyer remorse period. They received the handset 10 days ago and am still waiting for my refund. Any time I've returned/exchanged a VZW handset I got credit within 48 hours of them receiving the phone
They may be pains in the *** when it comes to some things, and a bit pricier than the rest, but in the areas I need them to be strong VZW has still always proved to be the best IMOJe t'aime encore, Roguette

i live in suburban chicago, and the sprint coverage for me is AWESUM..
I have had every other provider, and i must say that Sprint coverage is the best of all the providers here, at least for me..the main problem with Sprint has always been problematic customer service, especially on Mondays!

Sprint's customer services is terrible what day you call. They have constantly received the low ratings from Consumer Reports and JD Power. Coverage on Lake Shore Drive is terrible and I had a CSR had the nerve to tell me it was my fault because I lived in a high rise. What? Unacceptable.
And did you hear they lost 29.5 billion http://forums.crackberry.com/f70/ouc...billion-21083/
They have lost over a million customers in two quarters, that is shameful.“Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done.” C. E. Stowe

All carriers have shoddy coverage in some areas. There is no best cell phone provider. The best cell phone service is the one that works in the areas that you need it to work. Don't blindly drink the VZW koolaid because it is all marketing. Do your own research. Sprint rules Southern California!

I switched from Verizon to Sprint about a month ago. Service at my home is equal to Verizon. Service at work is outstanding due to the fact that there is a Sprint cell tower on the property.
I'd agree that you should try it out first to see how service is for you.Go ahead and pin me. You know you want to! 32CA8DEA

You MUST change your phone number if you go with the SERO plan. Think about everyone who has that number if you have had it for a long time. All your contacts must be updated, doctors, schools, work, people you have not seen in awhile. Oh, and by the way, stay with Verizon...
