    I was not able to force my phones to 1900mhz, but I did take out a 14
    day trial on Sprint and found that, yes, in fact, Sprint does work in my
    house (not a perfect signal everywhere, but significantly better than
    Verizon). After a week of using Sprint, I took the plunge yesterday and
    switched my family plan of four phones over to Sprint.

    For what it's worth, as a long time, loyal, happy Verizon customer (give
    or take some truly awful customer service experiences just over a year
    ago), this was a tough switch to make, especially given all the bad
    stuff I've heard about Sprint. But in the places where I spend my time,
    I'm finding Sprint's coverage to be as good as or better than Verizon's,
    and so far I haven't noticed the disadvantages of the 1900mhz system.
    Plus, Sprint's phone choices are quite good (the Sanyo RL-4920 I got is
    great), and they currently have a 7PM nights and weekend package...

    So, I wouldn't recommend that anyone leave Verizon (I would have stayed
    if it worked in my house), but I was happy to find an acceptable
    alternative.

    I hope there is a time soon when all the major carriers have good
    signals almost everywhere, so we can make our choices based on customer
    service, price plans, and phone choices. They're all working on that,
    right???

    Thanks to everyone in this group who helped me figure this out!

    I was not able to force my phones to 1900mhz, but I did take out a 14
    day trial on Sprint and found that, yes, in fact, Sprint does work in my
    house (not a perfect signal everywhere, but significantly better than
    Verizon). After a week of using Sprint, I took the plunge yesterday and
    switched my family plan of four phones over to Sprint.

    For what it's worth, as a long time, loyal, happy Verizon customer (give
    or take some truly awful customer service experiences just over a year
    ago), this was a tough switch to make, especially given all the bad
    stuff I've heard about Sprint. But in the places where I spend my time,
    I'm finding Sprint's coverage to be as good as or better than Verizon's,
    and so far I haven't noticed the disadvantages of the 1900mhz system.
    Plus, Sprint's phone choices are quite good (the Sanyo RL-4920 I got is
    great), and they currently have a 7PM nights and weekend package...

    So, I wouldn't recommend that anyone leave Verizon (I would have stayed
    if it worked in my house), but I was happy to find an acceptable
    alternative.

    I hope there is a time soon when all the major carriers have good
    signals almost everywhere, so we can make our choices based on customer
    service, price plans, and phone choices. They're all working on that,
    right???

    Thanks to everyone in this group who helped me figure this out!

    Michael

    I was in the exact boat your are in. I used Verizon for about three
    years or so in the late 90s into 2000. I had a stint with
    Aerial/Voicestream and then moved on too Sprint. I gave Verizon another
    chance this last April and found that they have not upgraded a single
    tower in my area in 4 years! So much for all the billboards claiming,
    "We Check It". Not in Minnesota they don't (but the billboards are
    everywhere)!!!
