    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.

    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.
