I've been a long time Sprint customer. Customer service is pretty good, and I appreciate their Fair & Flexible plans. But I have to say their coverage is not as good as Verizon's, but then again, whose is? Sprint/Nextel isn't as aggressive in making sure thier signal reaches every crack and crevice, which can be annoying sometimes. 'dogg, you might also look into Cingular, which I hear rocks. Unless they don't have the phones you want.
