BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- AT&T (T - Get Report), Verizon (VZ - Get Report) and Sprint (S) have been slugging it out for years, most recently fighting for control of the iPhone-dominated smartphone market. While there's no clear winner, the weakest player is obvious. Avoid Sprint.The map wars between AT&T and Verizon have been raging for months with each company claiming the other's network is garbage. Noticeably absent from the debate is Sprint, which spends most of its advertising dollars on chest thumping ads about its fourth-generation network, even though that network isn't available to customers living outside major cities in the Midwest. While coverage is planned for major cities, such as New York, Boston and Los Angeles, Sprint's falling short on its main selling point.
