The coverage map where I live is all white. They say there are no sprint towers here. Or T-Mobile either. Am I wasting my time and money on a RW phone and service? Or should I rest in the fact that I have Wi-fi and that will be enough to use this phone and service? Any feedback on this? Thanks.
Assuming you are looking at the GSM coverage map, that tells you nothing about Sprint towers. That map is T-Mobile only. If the “coverage” is white, it means no coverage so you certainly shouldn’t consider the GSM service.
Check your Sprint coverage here: http://coverage.sprint.com
If you have good coverage with them, then you can take the chance of getting one of the phones we know people have been getting CDMA SIMs with, the Moto G4, Moto G4+, Moto X Pure and Nexus 5X. Remember, there is no guarantee that you’ll get a CDMA phone, if you don’t, your only choice will be to return the phone.
