    The most important thing when going to a new provider is that you can cancel and return the phone in a certain time period. You can't believe the maps they give you and the salespeople don't know where all the little black holes are. It is nice to have a fancy phone but not so great if the phone does not work.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I have a Nokia 3595 and I love it.

    The battery lasts at least a week without being charged, although I usually charge it back up every few days.

    Hey Disneylan - Have you 'pulled the trigger' on the phone purchase yet, or is this still in process? Because you might want to have someone else from the company loan you one of their Sprint phones for the day before you switch providers and cancel your old service. They will let you cancel out of the new contract, but it's a hassle.

    I've been in lots of places where I had a solid Verizon Wireless signal and the other person's Sprint phone was DOA. If it happens to you once or twice you can laugh it off - but if it happens too often, it stops being funny real fast.

    Fun is having to tell someone "I'll call you right back - we're at Haunted Mansion and the lap-bar just lowered itself." And seeing you still have a three-bar signal.

    Agree with Bruce. Verizon is better than Sprint.

    OMG I must be the only person without a cell phone in the world, my husband has one, my daughters have theirs which are entirely useless to me since when the mom ring sounds it up to their discretion if they want to answer it or not. Dont get me wrong I have had one ...the first time i was loading groceries in the car and my husband called and said did you get whatever the heck it was at the store and i didnt I just looked at the darn thing and said I dont need this as i trotted back into the store, the second one took up space on the counter since I never took it with me so bye bye it went. When I go out and my husband is home he gives me his so he can reach me oh boy!!! And the girls think I am an idiot for not having one , because thats only when they want to call me and think I should answer it for them LOL. I run a business that requires me to be on the phone most of the day , I resent having a phone attached when I am at leisure. Its the only modren day tech that I just resist, of course I am in a place that I dont have small children to worry about.

    Hey thanks for asking! I still have my Verizon LG6100(I had to check :o )for now.

    My husband got his sprint phone a slider one, it's way cool, he says he gets better reception but who knows, he's crazy.

    I'll be keeping my verizon for awhile longer. Thanks for all the input!

    The wierd part is, Sprint and GSM style phones can do better in dense urban areas, where they blanket the area with micro-cell sites. But in the suburbs and rural areas, frankly, they stink in comparison.

    If you are driving cross-country (like from Los Angeles to Las Vegas) you have coverage along the freeway - but the minute you get out of sight of the main road, fuhgeddaboudit. "No Signal" If that is where you are working or playing, you have a problem.

    I do have to just jump up and down about the new phone I got - it's the Motorola v551 from Cingular.

    The phone plays MP3s and midis for ringtones, uses jpgs and animated gifs for wallpaper and screensavers, and can take pictures and video! It also has Bluetooth so I can can transfer files and phone #s!

    I've gone nuts and made lots of wallpapers for my phone and ringtones too. It's a very nice phone!
    Happy Anniversary, MiceChat!
