Is the 3G service on Sprint as awful as it is with Verizon? I recently spent 4 days in downtown Chicago. The coverage there was ridiculous. I lost count of the time of times I had 1x or no data coverage. I was a Sprint customer for about 8-9yrs straight and never had any issues with them. I'd never used an EVDO based phone with them though. Switched to Verizon for the Droid on launch day, regretting it more and more everyday. Then again who knows how much longer Sprint will even be around.
