Sprint in Vermont
« on: August 19, 2008, 12:09:59 AM »
I'm a real "city guy", and I'm finally venturing out of town, to Vermont.  Does anybody know or have experience with Sprint cellphones working there?

Well, my experience in the Catskills has led to me to believe that out-of-the-way places - and the moutains in particular - are not reliable for this.  Remember that couple who crashed on the way to Montreal last year?

Well, after the a 3-day trip, I can tell you that Sprint absolutely does not work in/near Orwell, VT, and the bars I supposedly had when I switched to Roam were just a mirage.

Yes.  I would occasionally switch it to just roaming, at which point I would suddenly have a bar or 2 (usually as many bars as my friend who has Verizon had), but the phone would work equally ineffectively.
