Here it's ok, but you don't live where I do so the only way to find out is to ask around where you live.
If all you want is talk and text, why get a smart phone? Can you stand one of those feature phones that only talk and text?

ok me and my wife have verizon wireless, and its ok, it do what we want it to do, simple talk and txt, now my question is how good is Sprint service, ive done my reasearch, ive seen the sprint coverage map and it doesnt look too good, compared to Verizon which cover every little spot there is on the map, and so me and my wife have been talkin about switchin over to sprint, cuz sprint offer more stuffs for the same price that im payin verzion and i get very little service from verizon like the family plan, 700 free mins and unlimted txt free mobile to mobile and starts a 9 and weekend for 80 bucks while sprint has 1500 free mins and unlimted txt for the same price 80 bucks also moblie to mobile and starts at 7 and weekend and also im throwin in Direct Connect cuz i used to have DC when i worked for a company and found it cool and quick, now im just getting people opinion who has sprint cuz i never had anyone else but verizon and Verizon seems to be going to all smartphone and YOU MUST HAVE DATA, and i aint the type to live my life by my phone and tell facebook when im sitting on the toilet or watch tv, not to mention i hate touch screen phones or any smartphones i have my laptop to do that i just want a phone thats talk and txt with really good service and thats that!
