    Are you all mostly happy with Verizon and the 700wx or do you recommend another smartphone?

    I have to switch from spring due to roaming at my new house

    Unfortunate since Sprint has the cheapest data. Maybe a home signal booster would be cheaper in the long run?

    A friend of mine, who is a Sprint Sales Engineer, told me about these in building repeaters...

    Call Sprint retentions. If you have no service at your new home. . . maybe they will kick in voice and data roaming for free. I know Sprint has data roaming agreements set up with Altell towers -- I am not sure about with Verizon. . . . . . what network are you roaming on?

    I already get voice and data for free. I just need to be able to receive calls at home, which I can't with Sprint service. It roams to Verizon's network.

    I'm upset about leaving Sprint, but do I have another option? I rely on my phones for business calls.

    Do those really work ? And where do I buy one?

    I had the same problem and ended up switching from sprint to verizon AND got one of these http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&Sku=H529-0002.

    It DEFINITELY helped. This was back before there was data roaming and I too use my phone for business so missing calls due to low signal was not acceptable.

    Try this one for sprint's signal frequency.

    Just be aware that the signal will only work in close proximity to the extender. I personally was only able to get a good signal in my home office and in the living rooom which were right next to each other.

    I pay $5 a month with Spring for roaming, and can use up to half my minutes on roaming calls. Do you think you are using more than half of your minutes monthly?
