    I worked as a contractor for Sprint at their headquarters in KS last
    year. One day we were smoking with Sprint people literally five feet
    away from their building, and my Verison phone worked while their
    sprint service was dead. Note: I do not work for Verizon, and could
    not care less about any of them, I'm just giving and independent
    account...
    As far as ATT goes - it's the worst from any point of view -
    coverage/price/customer service.

    that is.

    If I was on break, I might stand where my boss could not call me
    either.

    On a related note, I have used my Sprint PCS phone tens of feet below
    sea level with great success.

    in their phones.

    How would a moisture sensor affect call quality?

    I used my Treo 300 from my Kayak in late 2002. Used a Verizon Audiovox
    before that. I really need a new pelican case.

    You don't even have to go all the way to Death Valley. As you drive
    along I-10 east of Palm Springs, there is a nice sign at the top of a
    gentle slope that says "Elevation: 0". The Salton Sea, just south of
    the interstate, is almost as low as Death Valley, at -235 feet. It was
    formed in the early 1900's when there was a break in one of the
    aqueducts, letting loose an enormous volume of water from the Colorado
    River. Due to its elevation, there was no way for the water to run off
    anywhere, so it stayed as a large lake.

    Incidentally, within Death Valley National Park, you can also go up to
    an elevation of over 11,000 feet! As the crow flies, it's only about 16
    miles from -282 to +11,094.

    Cool. I didn't know that.

    I did know that, though. But it's not 16 miles from -282 to +11094, it's
    only about 2.2 miles (11376 feet).

    Oh, wait, that's not what you meant.

    Yet I have an aunt and uncle that live in Overland Park, literally minutes from
    Sprint HQ which is also in Overland Park, and last time we were there we had
    no problems using my wife's Sprint phone.
