Cingular the WORST Just ask Robby Gordon
Sprint excellent coverage in So Cal, Havasu and Vegas
I have Nextel now, The coverage is not as good as Sprint but the benifits with the phone and rate plan make up for it.
As far as customer service, who cares what do you need to talk to them for. If the phone service sucks that bad, its time to switch.

I dont know who works best in Tampa area.... I CAN say in Orlando I would go with Cingular or AT&T.. the 2 carriers have been in that market the longest out of all of them. This includes the Miami and Jacksonville markets also. I know Cingular is one of the newer players in the Tampa market, but we do have extensive roaming agreements there.

I just switched to T Mobile from Cingular yesterday because Cingular customer service SUCKS!!!

My wife and I have been with Cingular for 5 years and I started having problems with a phone that I bought last year and paid $400. for.

I asked for a discount on a new phone or a loner because I was dropping calls because the phone was shuting off. They basically told me to pound sand and said that I had to wait untill July when My contract was up or buy a new phone at full price.

I got a good deal from T Mobile on two phones and they payed for the early termination fee from Cingular. I am paying a little more that I was at Cingular, but for me when I call with a problem I wan't customer service.

The supervisors that we talked to on the phone at Cingular were terrible. First they did not return our calls, and then we we finally got ahold of one they said they did not care how long we had been customers.

If one of my employee's treated a customer the way I was treated they would be looking for a new job!!
