    I'm moving to an area that has 0-2 bars showing . The service isn't the
    best. Just a couple months ago I re-did my annual commitment with them.
    Has anyone had any experience getting out of Sprint PCS when the service
    isn't the best at a new home location?

    thanks

    I would try the service. I only get two bars in my location, however two
    bars with Sprint is much better in my home than 3 bars with Verizon.

    My brother-in-law moved from Adelanto, CA (down here) to California City, up
    north of Edwards. Sprint doesn't even advertise service there, so he ported to
    Nextel and they let him out of his contract with no early term fee.

    If they have a network in the area to which you're moving, and the signal just
    sucks, they may not let you out without the ETF, though. You'd have to talk to
    them.

    Depending on which phone model you have, 2 bars may or may not mean anything
    .... The key to whether the service is adequate or not is whether you either
    can't make or receive calls or if the calls start to drop. If either of that
    happens, you can call SPCS and see whether they will offer cancellation via
    a port to another carrier with no EFT.

    If you find you have intermittent problems in making calls, i.e.: inside
    buildings, but no problems outside, you might considering the $5 F&CA option
    to your account.

    Check and see whether you have the most current firmware for your phone, and
    the most recent PRL ... either 10025 or 10026. You can compare your firmware
    version to what's listed on
    http://www.sprintpcsinfo.com/modules...showpage&pid=9 .

    Last, but not least, reply to this post and mention what area you are
    talking about, with a major intersection you be moving too. Someone else in
    this newsgroup might be familiar with your new area and can pipe in with
    their experiences. Also, include in your post which phone model you are
    using.

    My sister lives in an area where there is 1-2 bars. When I visit her,
    I have no trouble making/receiving calls, or using Vision (or WW
    previously). Give it a try for awhile before you switch.
