I'm glad you have had good customer service.  It's been improving, but
it still doesn't meet my experiences with T-Mo.

We have had two Nextels with 1000 min. cell, and 200 min DC, LD,
and voicemail, for 5 years at ~$90/mo for that whole time.  That's 
a lot better than most of the plans until the last 6-9mo.

According to Consumer Report's last survey (unfortunately, centered on
the East Coast), Sprint was the bottom of customer service.  Verizon was
number one.  The rest were mixed up in the middle.

In coverage, I would rank as follows: Verizon, AT&T, Nextel, (Sprint | 
T-Mobile | Cingular).   T-Mobile has priority rights on Cingular's
and is actively filling in gaps (T-Mo = Deutsch Telecom).
