Anyone using Sprint mobile phone service?

I’ve used a Palm Treo 650 for about 2 1/2 years, and it’s served me well (especially when teamed up with ChatterEmail). That being said, my Verizon Wireless contract is up for renewal, which means I can get a severely discounted new phone… or I can switch to a new provider.

Palm Pre I was going to stick with the Treo until the announcement of the upcoming Palm Pre. I’m no iPhone junkie or gadget-hound, but I’m a fan of Palm, so this new device certainly caught my eye and created a small amount of drooling.

No surprise that the Pre will initially be available to a service provider other than Verizon Wireless – that service provider being Sprint. I’ve never used Sprint, but their rates seem much more competitive than Verizon, and they do have the phone I’m yearning for.

Does anyone have experience with Sprint, especially in the New York City area? How’s the service and wireless coverage? Is data access fast and reliable?

  • I have to say, that Palm Pre is very impressive from the videos I have seen. Competition is good!

    No knowledge of Sprint service, other then they run the same network technology as Verizon (CDMA), so in theory you can roam on Verizon’s network if Sprint’s network isn’t available.

  • I’ve used Sprint for years (in Atlanta area) with no problems. Definitely cheapest plans, especially for data users, and never had any issues with availability. Calls between Sprint users don’t even count against plan minutes, so I’ve seen a couple of small companies use it successfully for that reason too.
