I currently use both in the Bay Area and am very happy with Sprint, but not
so happy with T-Mobile. I know that Sprint seems to have a very bad
reputation, but I've used them here for five and a half years and honestly
can't complain. The coverage is fine, and I haven't had any problems to
speak of. T-Mobile has had weak coverage in my experience - though, this
may be a function of the phone.
As for switching, though, the carriers still don't have the kinks worked
out if you're planning to port your number. I'd wait a little longer to
make sure it goes without a hitch.
