I think Sprint is the best service. i live on long island Central, only 5 miles from sunken meadow stae park. My service is Great. I nevr have a problem making a call. I love walking past all those ATT and voicestream customers who have no srvice while im making a call. Sprint is the largest growing network prob with the best phones and technolgy. Samsung and sanyo are the giants Lg is good too. The fact is there all made by Quallcomm,, and all samsung phones are the same software base so there easy to use. Plus great web features lik AOL IM and many tolls shooping sports weather news Plane info flight times etc. If your looking for a good phone Try sprint.
