Best full 3G coverage (Sprint or AT&T) in Arizona and neighboring states?
Only have two choices (AT&T or Sprint). Which is known or has tested to have the better 3G signal strength and area in Arizona and neighboring states?
The intended purpose is blackberry tething and normal mobile broadband connections. Opinions please?

Check the coverage maps

I have used the coverage maps and I can tell you they are very optimistic, based on tests and reports I have received from sales people in the state. This is the reason I posted the question, looking for more real live data and observations for comparison.

What do you consider "full 3G coverage"? Bear in mind, it's gonna change up your handsets. Sprint NEVER gets BlackBerries. In the western US, you might consider T-Mobile.

Based on my experience with cell service in Arizona here, T-Mobile is your best bet. They're actually smart enough to put towers on top of mountains. No clue why ATT doesnt have good coverage. But bear in mind im not using 3G, so im not sure about the 3G coverage aspect

Sprint would be your best for AZ, NM, UT and most other states in that area. Verizon is now doubt the best for all those states.

Not if you want the best 3G experience.
*cue the flamewars*

This question is not intended to start a flame-war. I'm sorry for that.
I have a bunch of people that were recently issued BB on the AT&T network in the area, which have been complaining that they cannot talk and tether their laptops due to limited 3G. This was expected due to the open areas between cities, but not to the extent that I have seen in reports. AT&T is the preferred carrier due to their international coverage, but we have used Sprint in the past for domestic use. Now faced with the posibility of issuing mobile broadband cards in addition to the BBs they have.

I was just kidding. It just seems pretty popular today, even in the general populous.
