    I just renewed my VZW contract because the "new" Cingular has nothing to
    offer in my area. Cingular has no native coverage here and AT&T is lame. So
    putting the 2 together is still lame here.

    It isn't going to add anything to Sprints' network so there is no reason to
    wait.

    But unless Sprint has decent coverage where you use it the "new" AT&T won't
    be any better.

    But unless Sprint has decent coverage where you use it the "new" AT&T won't

    I just renewed my VZW contract because the "new" Cingular has nothing to
    offer in my area. Cingular has no native coverage here and AT&T is lame. So
    putting the 2 together is still lame here.

    It isn't going to add anything to Sprints' network so there is no reason to
    wait.
