    Default Cell Phone Providers

    At the end of next month, my contract with Sprint will be up and I will be free of their incompetence.

    What I would like to know is what cell phone providers y'all use. I want to hear all the stories, good or bad, before deciding who to jump ship to.

    Thanks for your help

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this was "DON'T USE SPRINT!!"

    But...I see you already know not to. LOL. I use T-Mobile. They're about as good as anyone else (except Sprint, they're just plain horrible)

    I wish I could help you but I was sucked into the Sprint black hole until 2007.

    I have verizon. The coverage is good. The accounting dept had problems merging accounts and the it took a while to find a competent tech rep for a software update; but, overall not any worse then other services.

    I had Cingular and cancelled within the trial because the coverage so terrible no one call went thru or stayed connected the first month.

    SPRINT sucks. They slammed my land line a few years back. Took a week to straighten it out.

    Cell phones are evil, and addictive.

    I've still got an outstanding complaint against them with the FTC that's a few years old now. At the time they told me I'd basically have to "get in line." That should tell you how many people actually filed complaints against them. They were (may still be) under investigation by the Fed's for fraudulant charges (claiming portions of the bill were for taxes when they were not.)

    Yeah Bob, I agree with you 100%. They SUCK!

    I love Cingular... granted I've dug myself into some steep phone bills in the past, but that was my own damn fault (liking to talk and all).

    Thanks for the suggestions. Cingular and Verizon seem pretty similar and both have gotten pretty even feedback to me. I will likely go with Verizon, as they have a phone I *really* want on sale thru the website. Hopefully its still there when I clear off my CC!!
