Credo/Sprint in Los Angeles?

So, Credo, which uses the Sprint network, finally has a smartphone that apparently doesn't suck (the HTC Hero). I'm very tempted to switch over from Verizon, especially since the latter tends to drop calls when I'm sitting in my living room. But I don't want to go from the frying pan into the fire, so to speak. Can any LA Mefites give me your opinion of Sprint's coverage, especially in the Echo Park/Silverlake/Los Feliz area? More generally, if anyone has experience with Credo's customer service, I'd appreciate hearing from you too. I want to support good causes, but I don't want to drive myself crazy in the process.

Another Undecided Consumer

I took a look at the Droid and am very tempted. Have a Blackberry Curve which is fine, but I'm due to upgrade anyway. My contract with AT&T (blech) runs out in October, cancellation fee isn't much. Droid should save me $50/month I'm currently spending to keep my Curve synced with my work Outlook. What think you, hive mind? I know there are a lot of MeFi Droid owners. I trust you way more than Amazon reviewers.
