making a switch from verizon to sprint

has anyone on here switched from verizon to sprint???? I'm just curious if you werre happy with the service.....Thank you in advance, I am in Maryland and would love a cheaper bill, but I am really afraid to port over my business line because I need good reception. So instead I got a different phone number to use for the 30 day trail period....

Thanks for any info you can provide..I got the HTC Shift and love the phone but afraid of revception in some areas, compared to verizon

To Root or Not to root

Exactly as stated... I don't know a whole lot about it but is it really worth rooting your phone?

re: Phone crashes on Call Waiting

Love this phone but have discovered a serious problem: If I'm on a call and get a call-wait and do not answer the call-wait, the phone crashes and I lose both calls (the active one and the call-wait). Very disturbing.

file downloading problem

Is anyone else having a problem downloading and opening files on their phone? Mine says file content not supported when trying to open music files! Getting very frusterating! Is there an app that I can get to fix the problem? đŸ˜ĸ

Open Programs

So I bought this phone for my wife the other day. I have the Samsung Epic 4G. I am used to having the program monitor where I can turn off apps that are draining the battery. Well I downloaded an app killer program for her Shift since it doesn't come with one, maybe I'm using the wrong one. It's called advanced task killer. Anyway, my issue is, after she makes a call or even when she uses an app, she goes into the task killer to kill the apps in use. Well there tend to be a lot that she hasn't even used that are running like Gmail and amazon mp3 for example. Does anyone know why these apps are running when she isn't using them and how to possibly turn them off? Thanks!
You do not need a task killer. Just because it shows that it's in the background doesn't mean it is using any cpu. Android is not like windows or osx, it loads everything it can to memory waiting to be called up. That's a very big misconception with a...

Voice dialing

I currently have a Hero, and voice dialing is useless. How is it on the Shift??
I use the BlueAnt S4 speakerphone on the EVO and the Shift and it works fine with 2.2 for voice dialing. 2.1 did not have that option.....

Rich, we disagree...

The keyboard isn't great. The disappointment starts when you slide it open; there's no spring assist to snap it open and closed. The keys themselves are separate and raised from the surface, but their flat shape makes them surprisingly difficult to tell apart by feel.

I happen to like the sliding mechanism. It reminds me of the Motorola DROID because of the fact that it doesn't 'snap' open. I prefer that style of keyboard. Once opened, I find the keys to be great. The feedback I get from pressing them is great and I wouldn't have it any other way. This may indeed be one of my favorite keyboards. It sure does beat the heck out of the Samsung Epic.

Which style of keyboard is your favorite...

after having it to mess around with, I've determined that in a world without the Evo, this is sprints meow. Yes-over the epic. Gave to play with it because specs don't lie, but they don't do it justice. Great phone

does it have the light leak like the EVO?

Just wondering, since it has the same buttons under the screen.
WTF is a light leak? And if youre talking about light from the sides of the phone which is extremely minut then... your just nit-picky.
No it does not. I work for Radio Shack and have sold one to a friend of mine already. I do use the Evo and I can definitely that it doesn't suffer from the same light leak. the bottom bezel is much larger on the Shift than the Evo 4G, and I think that...
