I am a current Sprint PCS user... With a great plan...
I love the fact of good coverage plus unlimited SMS.
I tried going to "carrier forums" but biased opinions is all I get in answers, since this is a device forum I think people will care more for the the Blackberry service they get rather than a particular carrier.
Regarding Blackberry service of the 3 main providers(Cingular, Sprint/Nextel, Verizon) who is the most reliable?
I already knw that V and Cingular provide mostly equal coverage (PHONE) and I have read PC MAG that states that Since the BlackBerry e-mail system is optimized for slower networks, the fast EV-DO network doesn't shine quite as brightly when you're using the BlackBerry as a handheld. The system just doesn't transmit enough data for EV-DO's speed to become important. E-mails arrived at the same speed as on a BlackBerry which uses the much slower GPRS/EDGE network. As the BlackBerry Internet Service boils most attachments down to formatted text.
I have unlimited SMS w/ Sprint that i like and for me is a BIG plus...
How do you guys in other networks cope without unlimited SMS (how do you guys go around that).
I want to go for Blackberry but i wanna ,ake a good Blackberry service decision.
In my city Boca Raton, FL all carriers provide 3 to 4 bars of coverage. please help.
