Verizon plan using Sprint tower

I'm a VZW subscriber and am really happy with overall coverage. One notable exception is where I work, in a hospital. I move around a fair bit while at work, and find that coverage is about 50/50 for Verizon. Interestingly, there must be a Sprint tower nearby, because when I'm on "Extended Network" the signal is great. The PROBLEM is that when my phone picks up the faintest VZW signal, it switches back... and as predicted, drops the call.

Does VZW have any phones that allow you to specify the network you are on? I'd rather stay with Verizon, since it works best outside of the hospital.

Thanks!

It's an LG VX6000. I asked Verizon that question and they told me it wasn't possible. My network options are "Home only" and "Automatic"

been awhile since i messed with that on one of those, try hitting menu then 000000 that should take you into the manual programming of the phone.there should be a force mode option in the menu that pops up, simply click on that and select pcs only and it should keep you on sprint, then just go in and switch it back when ever you want. Don't know if that will fix your problem but you can give it a try.

That worked perfectly... thank you very much!

Just one more question. I didn't pay attention to the default setting that the phone was on prior to switching to PCS only. I'm assuming it was "Digital only". Other options are "Cell only" and something with "REV3" and "REV4". Do you have any idea about this?
