Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T?

I see that now Sprint and Verizon are now selling the CDMA versions of this phone, and that AT&T is selling a GSM version (FUZE).

I have a couple of questions perhaps someone here can answer.
1. Are the CDMA EVDO-REV A connections still faster than what you can get with AT&T?
2. Do these units all have the FM radio disabled?
3. Which provider do you guys recomend?

Thanks!

Re: Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T?

I personally prefer Sprint due to their TEP program (I think ATT is much stricter with what phones qualify for insurance?) and mainly SERO. But since SERO isn't what it used to be (unless you're grandfathered in) it makes it a little more difficult.

Not sure about speed, but I've never really had any complaints with Sprint service. FM radio is disabled on Sprint TP's, but I'm not sure about the other providers.

Re: Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T?

I have only been with Verizon for a short time, and then Sprint ever since.

I have been fairly content with Sprint's service in a major metro area.

However, what makes me recommend against the other two companies over and over again is something very clear to anyone who does a little bit of research: Verizon and AT&T are MUCH costlier when you take into account what you are getting. The Sprint data network overall is very fast and modern (as long as your coverage is good) and they charge far less for their plans. So I don't have any need to consider the other two--my deal with Sprint beats 'em bloody.

Re: Sprint, Verizon, or AT&T?

ive been with sprint for about 5years (tmob and verizon before the internet/sms craze), customer service can be crappy at times, but the coverage of sprint in texas is prolly the best, I think EVDO is still the fastest 3g and sprint has 3g coverage everywhere here even when i was in the boonies (ren fest), where my friends iphone doesnt get 3g and tmob g1 didnt even get cell coverage
