Sprint users can get their data served Verizon-style?

Every once in a while, you hear a story that warms your heart -- a story that proves that there's still love in this cold, cold world we all call home. Such is the case here, where it seems sworn rivals Sprint and Verizon have sheathed their weapons long enough to reach an accord allowing the former's customers to use the latter's data network. If true (we haven't tested it ourselves), it would mean that Sprint's EV-DO footprint has just gotten a lot bigger. The roaming apparently works with Sprint's latest preferred roaming list, so give it a shot (just a warning, it'll require a call to that fabulous customer service line) and hit us up with the results!
