Not to rehash the whole "my cell phone provider is better than yours"
discussion, but I'd strongly advise against using SprintPCS for
communications as critical as this.  I've found their coverage to be
extremely poor outside of major metropolitan areas (unless you enjoy
using analog, and paying for the privilege, due to their lack of
coverage :-).  And, their international calling is shifty, at best.

Of course, your experience may vary.

Just my $0.02...
