    Sprint, Framily plan

    I was considering switching to this being that it would be 25 dollars a month it seems like a great deal. Any one on this plan or have sprint for their cell phone coverage? It doesnt seem to have a lot of areas under full power in NE Iowa so Im not sure its worth switching for me. Any help would be appreciated :)

    Wanna be in my framily?

    For NE Iowa, you could be in trouble. It's been a while since I've been up there a lot, but it's good on the major highways (20, 218, etc), but off on the state highways and county roads, you can lose coverage.

    Re: Sprint, Framily plan

    The plan itself is good and we like it. I personally always am complaining to my wife though about Sprints coverage. I get horrible reception at my shop in Des Moines, horrible reception on I-35 up to Ames and I don't have the best service at our house in Ames. If they could get their coverage area working better it would be a great plan.

    I had awful sprint coverage when I lived in Ames, but that was ten years ago. So it's probably the same.

    the coverage stuff is what I was afraid of, I think thatd be frustrating as all get out to be part of Sprint because of that.

    First and foremost, Sprint's coverage sucks. I use their coverage through Ting and the only reason I put up with it is that my wife and I's bill is <$45 a month.

    The reason I haven't done this is I believe you no longer get your new phone credit every 2 years

    While that's neat and all, I travel once a month to some small towns dotted all over the west side of the state and am out of signal more than I'm in it. Again, for what I pay a month, I can't really complain too much.

    I would have considered switching to Sprint after I married my wife - if her phone wasn't roaming in our apartment. In eastern Davenport. Where she basically had to step outside of the building to take a call so she wasn't roaming. Nice to see their coverage has improved over the years...

    Verizon's customer service sucks, I can't renew my contract to get a discounted phone because I'll lose my unlimited data, and it's bloody expensive - but I put up with it because the phone works practically everywhere.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    One day I'll probably make the switch to Verizon, but for now, my current bill is too good of a deal to pass up.

    Thats weird that you didn't grandfathered in on the unlimited data plan at Verizon. When Ms A and I upgraded last time they did it for us.
