"Verizon wants $44.99 per month for data, Sprint only wants $10!!"0.5 starson by cornerofnonwhere
Pros: Great PDA phone, full keyboard.
Cons: Verizon wants way too much for their data access!
Summary: Verizon wants for most of their PDA phones $44.99 per month for their unlimited data usage. Sprint only charges $10 for that very same access. With any EV-DO device, including PDA's, Sprint charges $15 a month for unlimited.
Verizon limits everything you can download and use on your phone. You have to download BREW programs from (ONLY)Verizon for use on your Verizon phone.You can not download a BREW program from anywhere else! You also can not use JAVA! So all of the programs made by companies from all over the world are useless to you are your Verizon phone. And since Verizon holds all of the cards, they can also limit what sites you may goto. Ask any Verizon customer that uses the web and let them tell you the their annoying stories.
Also, Verizon does not allow you to take your MP3's & photos and use them on your phone. No! ONLY VERIZON CONTENT!
Sprint on the other hand lets you use any of your custom ring tones, video ring tones, streaming video, wallpapers on your Sprint phone. Sprint does not limit what sites you can access. Sprint lets you use ANY Java programs on your phone. Sprint has the peace of mind to know that their customers are not little children and lets them have their privacy.
Verizon's VCast is really limited. Very few things can be customized and added. Sprint lets you choose from, and customize your content. Verizon has some pretty pricey plans. Sprint has Free Incoming and the Fair & Flexible America plans. Free PCS-to-PCS & PCS-to-Nextel calling. On top of roaming on the entire Verizon Wireless, ALLTEL, and Many other networks for free. Nights starting at 7:00PM and 6:00PM! Sprint has way more plan features then any other carrier.
I am happier with Sprint!
