of course the network is critical when choosing a service provider, but it's not like the companies with the flashy new phones have horrible networks either. they just may not be as good.
i've been with sprint, att/cingular, and now verizon, and i must admit that i've been happiest with vzw. not so much b/c of the coverage, but also b/c sprint and att have always treated me like dirt.
however, my girlfriend is on Tmo and always glowing about their service and customer support. she and i travel in a similar daily circle, and her service is pretty much identical to mine here in los angeles. so for me, if coverage is the same, customer relations is the same, but one company gets the better phones first, it becomes a very compelling argument to jump ship.
