    I've updated my three Cellular Carrier Evaluation web sites. The biggest
    update was in the carrier ratings, and was prompted by the deterioration of
    AT&T TDMA service in all three areas.

    I also included a short report and a long analysis of the February 2004
    Consumer Reports article on Cell Phone Service (but you'll have to buy the
    magazine, or go to the library, to see the details.

    These sites are objective, non-commercial sites that are designed to help
    consumers choose a carrier.

    cites and references if you take issue with any of the content.

    I had not been to the above site in a while; interesting info, and
    below is quoted the opinion of sprint:

    "7. Sprint is in a hopeless situation. Their best hope is to be
    acquired by someone or to exit the wireless business and sell their
    spectrum"

    I haven't been in Manhattan in a year or so, but while last there I
    found my sprint phone to appeared to work normally; guess that shows
    what I know.

    "7. Sprint is in a hopeless situation. Their best hope is to be
    acquired by someone or to exit the wireless business and sell their
    spectrum"


    This is going a bit too far I would say. They had a pretty good
    quarter to end 2003 and added 1 million total customers while keeping
    churn rate lower than the same time a year ago. I don't see how this
    translates into a statement like that. This is more of an opinion than
    a fact.

    I assume that the OP's comments applied to the NYC area only.
    I know that SprintPCS is doing quite well in the SF Bay area, and their
    recent nationwide overall performance hasn't been all that shabby.
