    I have heard that Sprint isn't such a good service provider if you go outside major cities, is this pretty much true? I might not travel outside of many big cities but when I go to a rural area I would like my cell phone to work. I have also heard that Sprint does not have month to month calling plans anymore. Does anyone know how long sprint trial period is? Thanks. Also please post your reviews of sprint. Thanks

    From the Western Forum page, near the top left, you'll see a Search feature/field. Type in <u>Sprint</u> and feast your eyes.

    The Sprint trial period is 14 days. Your cell phone will work just about anywhere if you have a dual band but once you go off the SPCS network roaming charges will apply. They do still have month to month plans but it will costs an extra $10/month not to have a contract.

    i have had sprint on various plans for about 8 years. during the y2k crunch i was all over the western US and pretty much had solid coverage in most cities, except for the bunkered banks with underground systems.

    oddly enough, i had terribly coverage near our home office in petaluma and found spotty coverage all along the 101 corridor - a main freeway in california. there are wierd dropouts even in alameda county (pop. 1.5 million). in heading east, i found coverage to terminate in the sierra hills entirely while cingular, cellone and ATT users kept coverage right over to the nevada side.

    i really seems to matter what kind of phone you have, also. you cannot get by with a cheapie.
