    My ATT contract is about to expire and I'm shopping carriers. Sprint has the best pricing in my area but I'm looking primarily for coverage throughout Northern Lower Michigan. I'm an HVAC contractor that travels widely but spend most of my time "Up North". Can anyone give me some real world experience regarding Sprint coverage up here?

    If there isn't anyone from that area on here that can answer this question for you, try asking people in your neighborhood that have Sprint, what their experience has been. You can also use Sprint's 30 day trial period to test their coverage out for yourself.

    I tried out a Sprint phone for about a week and the coverage/signal was very poor. This was mainly in the Missaukee, Northern Clare and Osceola county area. Would not advise Sprint in this area yet. We went with Alltel. The folks there at the store in downtown Cadillac sell Spint, Verison and Alltel plans and were very helpful.

    Oh well, at least you tried. You did the right thing. Try it out, and if it does not work, return it. Good luck with Alltel/Verizon!

    Frankly, I wish I could have used Sprint. Their plan was better suited to my user group/business and would have saved me about $80 bucks a month. The fact of the matter is that trying out the phone while leaving Cadillac heading east, it dropped the call four times during a 12 minute conversation. That's not acceptable.

    Agreed. I never would have recommended Sprint up in that area in the first place, but it's great that you at least tried it out. Maybe well see you in 5 years :rolleyes:

    This is a good tool, however, it is not always an accurate method of determining what a persons coverage will be like in a certain area..... Sprint has me listed in their top coverage range, yet my next door neighbor that has service with them, has to walk down the street just to use their phone. People should take advantage of Sprints new free 30 day trial period as a means of finding out what their coverage will really be like..... I am sure the reverse is also true, that someone could be listed as having not so good coverage, but using the service for a few days shows otherwise.
