"Great network but with Sprint I get free Verizon/Alltel voice and web roaming"2.5 starson by MEGAmanJILL
Pros: Great network!Great size!
Cons: Can't use any other non-Verizon software. Can't visit full web sites. Can't do anything fun.
Summary: I was with Verizon for a little over a year. At my school, in most of the dorms, Verizon is dependable. The biggest problem for me with Verizon was the lack of features and the price for what little access they give. I couldn't use Vcast. I couldn't set my phone to roam. I couldn't view any live TV. I couldn't add free programs from the web like Opera Mini, Flurry or Gmail. I couldn't view full web sites through the 9800's web browser. To others this is not a big deal but it is for me. If I'm paying you seventy dollars a month, I want everything I am paying for! So I switched to Sprint. Yes I know this is a Verizon review but let me explain. I went into a Sprint store and they told me I could roam, for (FREE) on Verizon's and Alltel's networks. They told me I could set my phone to roam and use every voice and web features for free when I was roaming. They showed me how to do it in the store and I went home with my new service. This is how I look at it.
I can pay for a F&F plan (Which is a type of plan Verizon doesn't offer). I can add the fifteen dollar Moto Q data plan (What Verizon charges Fifty for). I can use any of my anytime and unlimited N&W minutes while I am roaming. And I can use the web while roaming. I even found out that I can still watch TV and listen to the radio when roaming (I couldn't even use Vcast because Verizon doesn't have it in my area). So I get access to three networks (Sprint-Verizon-Alltel) all for the price of one. And I get to use web features that I couldn't with Verizon. This is what makes Sprint far, far, far, far, far, far superior then Verizon. The way I see it, if you pay for Verizon or Alltel, you are paying for the same type of access I get for free with Sprint. 3 networks for the price of 1!
Verizon doesn't offer anything close to this. You can't justify in my mind how Verizon is better then Sprint, when I get to use your carriers network for free!
