Who is the best cellular service provider for the Bloomington area?

Hey don't know if I'll be in Bloomington for law school (currently on the waitlist), but I did my undergrad there. I used both Sprint and Cingular while I was there, both had pretty good reception everywhere.
I chose Cingular after my contract with Sprint was up because the dumba** Sprint salesperson wouldn't give me any kind of deal to renew. I've been much happier with Cingular's overall service and support.

Thanks for the input!  Verizon and Cingular both seem like they would offer decent plans. 

Ilsox7- why do you say Verizon over everybody else?  Any particular reasons or just had a good experience with them thus far?

IU does have that deal, it's like 12% off phones and service.  Sprint, Cingular and Verizon are all fine in Bloomington, Nextel and T-Mobile are terrible.

When I was at IU for undergrad (granted it's been a couple years), Verizon was the only reliable service down there.
