Now that Cingular and ATT combined and Spint and Nextel have combinded who do you think is providing the best service? Does cost matter to you? Is Sprint worth the direct link walky talky style?

I had bad luck with sprint. It seemed like every month they got the bill wrong. Calling customer service every month sure gets old. I dropped sprint well over a year ago. I am not with verizon. I have heard good things about cingular though. My mom has cingular and never seems to complain about it.

Yeah when I had sprint I didn't like it because you had a $150 limit and if you went over that in overage minutes they didn't just bill you on your next bill they shut you off till you could pay 75% of it and then still charge you the overage minutes. I hated that. Its not that I couldn't or didn't want to pay the extra minutes but sometimes I had to wait to a payday and that ment my phone being shut off for a week or a week and half just because I went over in minutes. Stupid. And the reception. I didn't get it good around where I live at all!!! Lots of dropped calls or choppy calls. I dropped Sprint as soon as my year was up! I switched to ATT which later became Cingular so thats who I am still with. And they have AWSOME customer service!

Any one else have an opinion on this? I was really looking forward to some feedback because I was trying to decide if I should stick with Cingular or switch to Sprint. My times almost up and my parents have a walkie talkie phone through nextel (which is sprint now) I just don't know if it would be worth switching? What do you think?
