Re: VZW vs Sprint EVDO in Cleveland results "VZW wins on national coverage and roaming. "
Verizon doesn't do EVDO roaming, only 1xRTT. Sprint does both EVDO and 1xRTT roaming and actually has better roaming agreements than any carrier. Sprint actually roams on Verizon 1xRTT. And you have more granular control of forced roaming/1xRTT with Sprint than with VZW.
Verizon also does not have greater EVDO coverage than Sprint, but it depends on the area. VZW is slightly less actually but they've been playing catchup to each other the last few months.
