    Contemplating switching to sprint from verizon

    Mainly to get advantage of new lower priced data services such as
    email, web access on a treo phone

    As I travel from western edge of wash area (leesburg, middleburg,
    charlottesville)
    to southern maryland (calvert county, PAX Naval air) to northern
    Baltimore suburbs (Towson, Owings Mills) to easter shore - Lewes,
    Rehoboth along rt 16 in delaware

    would like to know how good coverage is in these areas

    appreciate cc to email for any postings to list

    As that is the home area for Bell-Atlantic now Verizon it is logical to assume,
    and my son confirms, that Verizon has the best overall coverage. It is entirely
    possible that there are areas where Sprint's coverage may be better. Go to the
    areas where you need to use the phone and ask around.

    As a person who stayed in germantown, md and traveled daily between the
    metro station near there and union station I can say I had perfect sprint
    signal. The only problem I had was in the metro tunnels. Verizon only
    provides 800mhz digital signal and 800mhz analog which rules out my sanyo
    4900 for digital roam. Which as anyone knows on the metro you will quickly
    jump out of analog cell range before you complete your call while the
    metro is in motion.

    I live in the Leesburg area and have great Sprint PCS coverage. I travel
    down rt. 15 to Manassas regularly. Through Centreville, Chantilly, Herndon,
    Sterling and Reston are my regular areas and Sprint works great for me. I
    use a Samsung i500 and it is a great phone. Good luck.

    Here's a pair of articles from the Washington Post about coverage.
    They're from 2 years ago - coverage may have improved since then.
