I have been considering a switch to Sprint from T-Mo myself. My main problems are signal reception is weaker than it used to be and just today I lost signal AT HOME and in a building I would normally get reception in. It has been like this for the last 3 months. I may get the 450 Everything Data ($69.99) or the 450 Everything Messaging ($49.99) plans and the 8130 (or the 8220 if it's out in a CDMA version) on a 2 yr deal if I decide to do so. Gotta wait until 2010 though.
I just have to get used to not using a SIM card on a CDMA carrier LOL

One great thing about trying out Sprint is that you have a full 30 day money back guarantee if should decide you're not getting the service you need.
Wow, Thanks for all the replies. I started my service on Jan 1 and I guess due to the holiday they had big problems activating my 2 lines and porting my 2 numbers. I was there for 2 hours. I was required to pay a deposit, and in the middle of all the difficulties, their computer system lost my deposit. They finally got it sorted out and the store workers were very nice, I must say. I recieved a call from the lady who helped me today to make sure everything was working properly, which really surprised me. That was a nice touch. I should have my berry by mid next week.....I find myself twitching and weeping randomly without it. We have the everything unlimited plan with 2 lines. More than $30 cheaper than VZW, with no limit on minutes. at&t has very poor signal in my area.
wow, ima pray for you. I cant see myself without my berry for an hour, and you have to deal with a week.
dude, don't do it!!! If you switch to sprint you won't have picture mail on your 8330 or any blackberry for that matter. Sprint is the only provider that doesn't offer picture mail with their data package. The only way you'll be able to send a pic is through email or bluetooth. It really sucks!

Sprint does have good customer service. But they have problems.

Thought you gurus might like to know.
PS , I am test driving the iphone3g.
I see how it might be a big issue with you, but it really doesn't bother me. I send little to no mms messages. And if I need to that bad, I can just e-mail it. Not saying the whole mms thing should be ignored, but with EVERYTHING this phone can do, I won't miss it.

(X's are where your phone number goes. Not taking for granted everyone would figure that out.) Good luck!

I guess it really sucks for you. Its not that important for many of us, there are many other options for sending pics on the BB, like email, or instant messenger. If your contacts dont have those, especially email, then they must be teenagers, or the elderly.

Really? I have to try that out

That's $30 a month or $360 a year. Worth the wait in my book.

And any areas (which I have yet to find) where sprint doesn't get service, sprint will roam on the vzw network for free. For the $99 that I pay now with sprint I would be paying well over $160 at vzw.

Now with all I've seen about the 9000 and/or the 8900 comming to sprint, its only going to get better.
Everyone talks a lot of trash about sprint, but I am very satisfied. You couldn't pay me to have an at&t phone. I was playing around with a friends 3g iBrick and at&t 3g data loads as fast as tmo edge. I laugh everytime I read posts from people who have at&t and talk about how bad sprint is. I believe how bad it used to be, but I haven't experienced any of that, with everything I've read, they've done a complete 180 on how they conduct business. And I'm impressed, and glad to be a loyal customer.
