    The cost advantage at Sprint was too much to pass up. After my two week trial with Sprint I've determined the covergae to be about the same as Verizon, especially with the optional free roaming capability. Cost of phone aside (I paid $320 and I've heard Verizon going for as high as $449, if you really want to use the Treo to its full advantage with web, e-mail, pics, text, etc. and your area is well served by Sprint then the Sprint plan is undeniably better - almost HALF the cost of the Verizon. Here's the numbers from my situation:

    Sprint:
    700 min talk time - $50
    free roaming - $5
    unlimted data, pics, 100 text - $15
    Monthly total - $70

    Verizon:
    600 min talk time - $75
    free roaming - $0 (included in above)
    data plan - $50
    pics - $5
    100 text - $3
    Monthly total - $133

    "Can you hear me now?" Hahahaha! But seriously, I'm curious: Verizon's data speeds aren't as fast as Sprint's, are they?

    Sprint and Verizon speeds are almost identical. I read an article in a mag a few months back and Sprint was 1 or 2 kbps faster download. Verizon had a tiny advatage on the upload side.

    It is the same protocol on both sides...

    And if you think $50 for a data plan on Verizon is bad, imagine being an AT&T/Cingular customer and paying about that same price for GPRS! Should almost be illegal....

    Really? that could be. I guess I just assumed they were the same as I think AT&T's is about $45 or 50.

    Having used both it seems in my area at least that Sprint is faster.
