Default verizon vs. sprint

I dont mean to start a Holy war here, but here goes...

I currently have a 7130e on verizon, I mostly love it. Someone at work has a bigger screen BB ( I THINK its an 8700) on Sprint. His screen is bigger, but I actually LIKE suretype and the smaller keyboard. So I am keeping the 7130e on Verizon.

well... Here I sit in St. Petersburg Russia with a useless phone. My buddies phone worked in Frankfurt including data, here in Russia it works as a phone fine, but no data. Meh, thats fine. My phone ONLY works in the U.S. and I also have the advantage of no GPS. OH, and dont forget, if I switch phones, no SIM card! so nothing moves to the new phone. woohoo!! :(

Am I missing something here? It seems like I should definitly switch to a carrier with better service. Spring has EVDO for tethering (so does verizon) and works in Europe (not verizon). I am thinking of switching when I get home, but I dont want to regret it later.

any opinions?
(other than "SPRINT SUX", yes, I will stipulate that ALL carriers suck. with that stipulation, what else? )
