My uncle and mom have Sprint phones. My uncle had to spend a week to
get his voice mail activated properly, and my Mom has spent the last
few months trying to fix what is now a $200 billing mistake.

A friend in Cary, NC (Containment Area for Relocated Yankees), found
that his Sprint phone didn't get proper reception at his
not-out-of-the-way house.

I don't have experience with Sprint yet, but what I've seen so far is
not good.

If you want to travel outside North America anytime soon, you'll want
a GSM phone anyway.
