    VZ has a great network. But you'll have to adjust to not getting your phone updated while other carriers update. Verizon is always late to the party

    I switched to to Verizon from Sprint a few months back after being with them for 15 years. I might look at Sprint again in 5 years when they have their network completed.

    Sprint can go to hell. Their network sucks and I got sick of all the lies. The best was having no service in a major towns that I now get four bars of LTE with Verizon. The sprint rep told me that I should be fine since they just upgraded the tower. Funny since I didn't have any signal for the two months leading up to it and for many months after the so-called update. I hate Sprint.

    Your right about that I have no problem with paying extra for a great service. So sprint can kick rocks

    And don't get me wrong, I tried Sprint for almost a year. It was an expensive proposition on many levels since I lost my unlimited data with Verizon. I can't tell you how many times I couldn't get data services. It was always the same - there's a tower down in your area. I even had trouble getting data in Midtown Manhattan. Glad I am out of that nightmare.

    Not according to their huge numbers of churn this last quarter - I have lots of company apparently.

    I switched from Sprint to Verizon just over a year ago.
    It's not that Sprint lies to you, it's more like they don't tell you the complete truth. After doing some homework (and trying to figure out why my Verizon friends were having better connections) the truth came out. At that time Sprint was touting their 4G and unlimited data. I was promised 4G with the year which never happened. After some reading, it became clear. Sprint was still on the Wimax 4G which more or less fell through. So, to make up for for that bad decision, they decided to move over to 4G LTE which has been painfully slow. I had to ask myself; why am I waiting and waiting for 4G LTE, and what the heck good is unlimited data if you cannot connect? So, when Verizon offered the "double your data offer" I made the switch...got 4gig for the price of 2gig. Truthfully, I have never looked back... good bye Sprint. However, now that Verizon has gone to the "share everything plan, " I can see why some would question leaving their current provider. I still think Verizon is most likely the best provider, but their new plan might be a deal breaker.

    I just don't know why they couldn't maintain 3g service while they were switching over. I get that sprint uses different frequencies and that they don't penetrate buildings well but there were just way too many places where I couldn't get a data signal or load a Web page. The only thing I will give them is that voice service was always good. Probably because sometimes I would roam on Verizon. But the data was a joke.

    The real reason why I switched is because sprint was going to cancel one of my lines because we roam to much. I payed my bill on time and everything.

    I was with Sprint for about 14 years. I got tired of dropping calls in a major metro area, having to leave the GF's apartment to go make a phone call or check email. Sprint is a shoddy 3G network. When I can now drive around and not lose your call and you do the math and realize that you can pull more data in 1 day on Verizon than you can in a month with Sprint... the choice is clear.

    I was never a hater until I went to cancel with Sprint 3 months before my contract ended because I needed my phone to work in a small town where I travel for work. I went through all the paces in a courteous manner and had 3 different reps tell me that with termination fees, the final bill would be $75. Got the final bill: $165. Called them and disputed it. Due to a lack of proper notetaking on their part, they wouldn't honor their word and they would not go chase down the call recordings, acted like I was lying or trying to scam them. Then they sicked a collection agency on me after only a month. Lousy lying bastards. I hope they go under swiftly. Never felt so wrong paying a bill in my life.
    If you are inclined to spend a lot of money and want a pretty trophy with which to pass the next few years of your life that talks to you in a condescending voice, can't navigate to save its life, expects full control over all you do, demands $13 for a $3 purchase, allegedly has a single recessed button, needs an expensive computer and a credit card to do anything, hates your music and has purses designed just for it...

    Get married to someone you hate... or get an iPhone.

    Darn. You had Sprint Cell service before Sprint had Cell service which started in 1996. It will be 16 years for me in December.
