I have been with Verizon for years, but I have to admit, I'm curious
about the coverage of this combined company. Any comments?

SL,
See for yourself. Here's the combined coverage as posted with the FCC on
their application:

You'll see Verizon still have them beat by a long shot:

especially when taking in the America's Choice territory:

Going by these maps, Sprint has the best nationwide coverage, but I'd
sooner believe that Bush is going to eliminate taxes for everyone below
$50K/year...

Sprint has coverage in a number of cities where Verizon has none. (or
weak coverage.)

I'm sure it does, but for the nation as a whole, uh uh.

And color on a map doesn't tell you anything about the quality of the
coverage. Sprint has coverage in my area but it is not nearly as
comprehensive as VZW.

And I use both. Verizon and Sprint are equal in many big cities; there ARE
areas where Verizon is better and there are areas where Sprint is better.

I just find it interesting that people like to bash Sprint when many of them
haven't used Sprint at all (or haven't used Sprint in a while.) They still
have their problems, but coverage has improved...
