It's easy to say Verizon has the best service..'cus it most cases, it does. Smile

I live in SoCal, an' spend a lot of time both there an' in NorCal (Hayward/Oakland & San Jose areaa). Trust me, Verizon beats Sprint in both areas (tho' the gap is probably bigger up north). Both Consumer Reports an' JD Power agree too.

Sprint a better value? Depends. On their Family plans, they do give you a little more minutes than Verizon fo' the same money. On individual plans, not really.. 400 Anytime minutes for $35, plus 50 more minutes for another $5 if I go over? Sounds a lot like Verizon's 450 Anytime minutes for $40 when you add it up to me. Tho' the Fair & Flexible thing is nice if you chronically go over your minutes. But T-mobile is cheaper still.

I don' know.. I think if Sprint really were 'all that', they'd have a better customer loyalty than they do have. Their churn rate is 2.1% (post-paid) compared to Verizon's 1.08%(post-paid).. so Sprint loses customers twice as fast as VZW does. Not exactly 'all that' -type numbers.

They also didn't add nearly as many customers as Verizon did last quarter, an' thats even talkin' the combined Sprint-Nextel here.

Far as Sprint bein' able to use the entire Verizon network at will.. thats the first I heard of this. I know VZW has a pretty extensive roamin' agreement with ALLTEL, but Sprint? Hum, lemee check into that one an' get back to ya.. that don' sound completely right.
