Can I just tell you that I can't wait to give el dedo to that sad sack of technology that is Sprint PCS? Man alive, they blow so badly. Everything from their sorry implementation of text messaging, to their poor excuse for multimedia messaging support, to billing glitches, to rude as hell and idiotic customer "service" representatives.

Now I just gotta figure out what phone I'm getting next and whose service I'm gonna go with. I've got some pretty tall orders. Text messaging has to be easy. The phone has to have a camera and it has to have good MMS support. I need IMAP and SyncML. Those are the technologies my company has built a killer product on, and I'd like to be able to use it.

Oh, and I need to be able to put cool ringtones on it.

Thank you.

Sprint OWNS.

AT&T sucks dogs. They gave me a 2000$ bill, told me it was my fault until I had to call the BBB on their asses. they lost the complaint, found it, apologized and told me the bill was their mistake. Did that stop them from calling off the collection agency? No. Theyre still hounding my ass about it.

Well, when it comes to poor billing and service, I think they're all that bad. At least AT&T has good coverage and features, and they keep adding stuff and getting better.

Sprint's features are weak and difficult to use, when they're actually available. Half the time their whole web site is down, or things just mysteriously time out. Plus, they've had the same weak ass set of features for years. They just shuffle them around every once in a while to confuse you. Fuck those guys.

I've had AT&T for years now. I'm happy with the service, tho the price is steep compared to some others. Watching my friends wave their phones around in the air looking for signal makes me fear trying anything else, tho.

jwz has sprint, and it's INTOLERABLY bad. I can't ever fucking call him. We miss cabs, food delivery, plans - all because his phone sucks so much.

He did manage to hack the imperial death march into the ringtone, tho. So there's that.

T-Mobile, they're German... you know, tall and blonde
Well, I don't know about any of those crazy capital letter acronyms you are speaking of, but T-Mobile seems to be working fine for me. It is super heck-of cheap, they have lots of phones, and it seems to support wireless web phone stuff (though I have not used it). I can send pictures from my phone, and can do different ringtones. I'd check them out if I was you... Tell 'em I sent you, 'cause I get $25. Awww yeah.
