I posted this in the Portland forum - got lots of looks but no bites, so I am cross-posting here. Moderator, please delete if this violates rules.

Hi folks, I am a long term (14 year) AT&T/Cingular customer and I am finally thinking of trying out Sprint, mainly for their very affordable data plans. If there are Sprint users on this forum, I would greatly appreciate hearing from them.
1. How is Sprint signal quality in Portland and Beaverton/Hillsboro?

2. How is Sprint up and down the I-5 corridor?

3. How is Sprint on Oregon state highways, especially in Eastern Oregon? We take road trips to places like the fossil beds in John Day, etc. and I want to make sure we at least have reasonable coverage on the highways. Does Sprint have free roaming agreements with Verizon in Oregon?

The last thread on Sprint was almost 1.5 years old, so I figured I would ask again in case the service has changed significantly recently. Any advice is much appreciated!

I can't comment on how the Sprint service is in Portland. But I can tell you that Sprint is in terrible shape right now. Last year they lost 4 million customers and 29 Billion dollars and has one of the highest churn rates in the industry. Meanwhile, VZW, T-Mobile, and AT&T have continued to gain customers at Sprints expense.
