I've been a Sprint customer since 2004 and the service has been great!  I've had no problems whatsoever.  Their phones have improved over the last 4 years as technology does.  Their plans are a big expensive though if you opt for "The everything" plan which comes with unlimited text, calls, internet, downloads, etc.  It'll set ya back about $100 a month though, which I think is a bit much!    Their customer service for lack of a better word SUCKS!  …
