Pros Live streaming videos, radio, and Sirius satellite radio. Power Visions content can be used off of the EV-DO network. Unlike Verizon's limited VCast services. 10 times more content then VCast.
Cons To get the complete package it will run you $25 a month. Which is not a bad deal for what you get access to.
Summary I have used Verizon's pathetic attempt at offering VCast content. Since Sprint has been offering live content on their 1x network for years now, you can use Power Visions content ANYWHERE on Sprint's network. With Verizon you can only use it in the places where they have EV-DO up and running. Also with Verizon, you are forced to use BREW. That means no third party web browser, e-mail clients, applications, games, ect. You are forced to use what Verizon lets you use.
Sprint on the other hand uses the Java, which is used world wide. So you can use any free application you can find.
Also with Verizon, they limit what music files you can play on your phone. This due to a copy-right deal they made with Microsoft.
Sprint on the other hand does not have this limitation.
On every single level Sprint's Power Visions is better then VCast. Sprint also allows you to use the $10 and $15 dollard Visions access with PDA phones. Verizon charges $40 dollars extra per month!!
Trust me, stay away from Verizon. If you want to have access to more content and applications, then go with Sprint.
Pros Live streams from Nfl Network, Mtv, Cnn, Comedy Central etc etc.
Cons Need more local channels and some video's have an occasional hiccup. (distorted picture)
Summary The sprint service has a myriad of programs ranging from sports to made for mobile programs. (Sprint power view and Bones mobisodes) The live streams are great, and the picture quality is good. The addition of MTV and Comedy Central makes Sprint TV a winner!!Updated
Oh and did I mention the full track downloads are only 99 cent!!!
Pros Fun Little Movies does provide episodic, made-for-mobile series.
Cons It's a little hard to find the episodic content hidden behind all of the longform prominent content.
Summary I am kinda partial(b/c I work for Fun Little Movies), but FLM's content is entirely mobisodes, including the Emmy-winning "Unreal Housewives of Kansas City," the Mofilm Grand Prize-winnning "Turbo Dates," and award-nominated Mr. Wrong.

"Best I've Seen"on by jeancarlosan
Pros Fast, To the Point, Easy to Use
Cons Service is not available everywhere. Music too expensive.
Summary My brother has the A900 and we are both very impressed. The Screen is huge for such a slim phone with pack features. We switched over from Verizon's service and can't complain. Can't say happier since we just got the service, but all looks good so far. I got the Sprint 6700 and I'm sad to report it does not come with "Vision" but Data Service since it's a PDA. I wish it had the Vision Service since it's easy to use and built for the small screen. On my PDA, I am still learning how to use it and I am looking for some PDA Friendly Website for better viewing experience. Back to Vision, I like the On Demand Feature the best which gives you info like movie times, weather and news. I like the fact that we also got 5 free songs, we’ve download the songs already, but I don’t think my brother will pay to get any more. Why when you can just upload your MP3s. I would pay the $2.50 per song if it was a must have and I wanted to show off, but I rather just transfer as well. I am happy with Vision.
