I'm still liking Sprint a year later
I went to Sprint as my cell phone vendor more than a year ago, mostly because it represented about a 40% reduction in price from Verizon. Verizopn had removed my discout after 3 years of retirement because retirees are not eligible. I gave verizon enough changes and they were not interested in competing.
On Sprint, for $90 a month, I get 900 minutes of phone use and unlimited data. Generally, I have had few drops and the reception during calls has been almost as good as Verizon. Quality IS important, as i run my music performing and teaching business using my cell. Sprint has done this very well and I am happy that I made the switch.
