    Anyone with these two carriers in the DC area? Just want to see if you find a huge difference in service quality in the area. I have VZW but may be looking to switch to Sprint for the cheaper plans. Thanks.

    I have both Sprint and Verizon 9650's. Both work great in and around DC. I don't use the Metro so can't tell you if they work in the tunnels. If you're thinking about NEXTEL forget about it. Awful coverage and dead air all over the place. Sprint's customer service is all over the place once in a while you'll have a great experience the next plain awful!! It always seems the minute you invoke them things go south on your account. When I switched over from NEXTEL to Sprint it was a disaster. Verizon CS has always been great, all though more expensive than Sprints Simply Everything plan for the flat 99.99 a month.

    I've never used Sprint, but I was in DC all last week and can confirm that Verizon works well in the Metro tunnels and stations that I used.
