Surprised this topic doesn't come up more. The most recent one I found was from April. In that thread, the general consensus is to stay away from Sprint. Which is funny, because I've had Sprint for probably 4 or 5 years now, and have been very happy. No real problems whatsoever. There's been times when I'll have full signal strength one second, and the next second the call has been dropped, only to regain full strength the next second. Kind of annoying, but that's a rarity.
I'm not leaving Sprint because of the service; I'm actually leaving because of the phone selection. My main requirement is that it has Bluetooth built-in, but is not one of those huge-ass cellphone/pda things. Verizon has a new phone out (e815, I think) that looks great, so that's who I'm leaning towards. But my other general requirements are that it's a flip phone, and I really don't care about cameras or anything like that. I just want a phone that's a phone. (God, I sound like my dad...)
But as far as service in general goes (voice quality, coverage areas, signal strength), does anyone have any input (good or bad) about Verizon in the metro NY area? What about T-Mobile, Cingular, or Nextel?
I guess we could make this the "official" cell phone discussion thread .
