I had Sprint, 4 years ago, everyone was bragging about how well verizion was, so we tried it. Not any better, but still good. Now I'm back to sprint with the tour. At my home, I get 5 out of 5 bars with sprint, with verizon, I got 2 or 3. My plan with sprint is as follows.. 2 blackberries, everything data plan 1500, unlimited text and data, unlimited sprint tv and navigation, NO blackberry charges, 129.99 per month - 23%(corporate discount) Comes to about $98 per month for 2 blackberries.
I looked into staying with verizon, It was 89.99 for 2 tours and 1400 minutes. Unlimited texting is $30 for both phones. Verizon also charges you a MANDATORY $30 minimum blackberry fee per berry. Sprint, nope. So basically 90+30+30+30= $180 per month. I would get a discount with vz as well, but not as good. So for me it was a no brainer.. I have better reception, faster downloads, and a much cheaper plan. I'm saving at least $60 per month. I am one happy Sprint camper and I get creat service at work, home, parents, inlaws, etc..
Don't always believe the hype, Sprint is ok, and their customer service has been quite fine as well.

Agreed. I have Sprint and my brother in law has Verizon. Sometimes there are places where I can't get my home network but Sprint has free roaming so it don't bug me anyway.

Sprint does require data plans for their smartphones but they are relatively cheap compared to other carriers and they include web, navigation, tv, picture and video mail and text, as where most other carriers charge you for each one.

Sprint had some growing pains but look at them now, they have the first 4g network --- Verizon is just starting to test market LTE (4g) -. Verizon is good but they are a rip off, too expensive. For unlimited data and text with Verizon its $50 a month ....its only $35 on tmobile. Verizon is just too expensive. Im sure the Spring Tour and Verizon Tour are pretty much the same except for the verizon or sprint branded apps you get on the phone by default.

I must be the exception because I have always had pretty decent experiences with the CS and have pretty much gotten what I wanted without to much trouble. And I have traveled all over and have never had a problem making or receiving a call. The plan that my wife and I have, Verizon,AT&T and others have admitted they can't come close to my rate for a comparatable plan. Now I have (4) phones on this plan. 3000 anytime minutes, unlimited data, unlimited text, free nights and weekends, and my nights start at 7.
