    I'm currently on Sprint. Should I expect the same exact coverage and performance if I switch to Virgin?

    For calling coverage I think so, it's not bad as is.

    For 3G it depends where you live, in the LA area, VM's 3G is unusable.

    so it's not the same as Sprint's 3G or does Sprint suck there too?

    It should be pretty much the same except that with Sprint you can roam onto Verizon towers.

    I had Sprint before going to VM and there is a big difference in the Dallas area. I often cannot send or receive calls or texts. The other night I couldn't receive a MMS from a friend (small picture) for several hours. Had to be in a different area with Sprint towers nearby to get it. Not happy with the coverage but you get what you pay for....

    Where are you? In Chicago it works well.

    IDK about Sprint 3G vs VM 3G, however I would NOT be surprised if VM users get sloppy seconds when it comes to sharing Sprint's data pie, afterall Sprint users got roaming dibs :(

    VM's dumping of Androids over BF have lots to do with the slow dnload as more phones vying for same data.
