Sprint coverage map is *very* deceptive about coverage and in places, out and out LIES. Read the fine print, "no roaming" means NO 911 calls. Neither company gives a flip as long as they sell their product. I did my homework on phones, frequencies. and coverage areas and STILL have to drive 2 miles to get more than 2 bars. They are slapping lipstick on smartphones that don't have much, if any, service. Feel richer yet??
I live in the middle of one of the most populated counties in Florida with no bars in my house and only two outside.
Go the prepaid route directly with an established carrier, Verizon or AT&T, if your cell phone is the only phone you have to rely on.
