I've always heard Verizon provides the best service, and to date, I've never had a problem with them(I've had AirTouch/Verizon for the last 5 years). Recently some in-laws came to visit me here in the states, all toting their SPV's which made me infinitely jealous. Is Verizon's service still worthy of my business, or have the GSM networks caught up? I live in Seattle and have heard many complaints about Sprint, and especially T-Mobile. Any thoughts? If services are comparable, I'm going where the hardware is...
