Both of them are bad. If the T-mobile-Sprint mergers gets approved, it won't matter. It will be hell as they integrate both networks, though. Think Nextel-Sprint.

I used to have Sprint and HATED it. Their "unlimited data" was a joke (unless you like 3G) and coveage was spotty...constant dropped calls and constant problems with the towers near me.

Switched to Verizon about 14 months ago and I've been happy with it. I'm on the 2GB plan since I don't use tons of data. It's about $15 more a month than Sprint was, but no aggravation AT ALL.

I'm not a fan of either, but I do have some friends that are on the unlimited t-mobile plan and see to have decent luck and are happy.

We had T-Mobile when we first moved to Dallas...very bad service in the Park Cities (or anywhere with lots of trees/foliage): dropped calls, unable to use cellphone inside house, etc. Switched to Sprint and the service, while mostly 3G, is so much better. I love Sprint because of the unlimited data/unlimited texting. With 2 teenagers a shared plan would have been very hard. Husband has his own plan on Verizon...he travels a lot for business and likes Verizon coverage nationwide. Kids and I like Sprint and haven't had any problems with service in the area we live...on their unlimited plan over 2 years now.
