        I have Cingular and have the "unlimited" minutes on the weekend. And 250 minutes during the week, I've had this plan for 2 years now and fast approaching the 250 mark each month. I may increase to the 350 plan or next level higher. I pay $35.00 per month for that plan. I also upgraded to the cool 3560 nokia color display..it's pretty cool

          can you hear me now? :Chatter

          without a doubt, verizon is the best. it has picked up a signal pretty much everywhere, esp. on the east coast. about the only place I can remember it roaming was on the outskirts of that booming metropolis Tama, Iowa.

              I take my cell phone to pow wows... and at the end of the day.. i've got like 15 missed calls. I never hear it ringing, or I forget it in da car or in my bag.... So.. when my pops calls during the night... he's like.. "Why'd u leave ur phone off.. I've been trying to call you."... Whoooooops.

              We use... Bell Mobility.... It's all good when we're in a town or city... Once we get to the rez.. the reception is no good. Even on the highway heading north. What if I were in some kinda emergency situation while driving on that highway.. my phone would be useless. My rez is in between 2 towns... 1 1/2 each way (North... South).. It sucks... when ya wanna call during the drive... cuz ya have to wait till you're about 30 mins from the nearest town for the phone to work.

                  Yep I had verizon and I was out to my grampas @ Tama Settlement and the dang thing worked out there! Now I have T-Mobile and it is crap. I lose signals even in the big Mile High City!:Angry

                            Got burnt real bad with bell mobility, first they told me one free calling number no matter from which location, okay the plan was 29.95 (canadian) month and unlimited calling for the free number,
                            when the bill came it showed up as 187.95 plus taxes. I freaked, they charged me for the free number because I had gone over the 250 minutes. I told them right then and there on the phone that it was specified unlimited free calling for that number and their sweet down to earth,,, reply was, I wasn't in the zone where it applied. I told them the reason I had the cell was that the only place I could use it was outside of the zone because there is no reception in the zone. They came to my area and wanted to prove to me that it works,,,,it failled no reception whatsoever. Still had to pay, dropped the phone and told them to shove it where they would need forceps to get it out. They told me I didn't have to be vulgar, I told them the bill was vulgar and told them I would never again go with Bell Mobility and told them their commercial was a load of crock, they boast that they have more signal towers out there and have more reception. Yah right!


                            Next time its verizon for me too!!

                              Will, Keith has Nextel - he seems to get good service. He sat in my den and talked using the walkie-talkie part to talk to his family in Ohio. I think as long as you have the unlimited calling area it does good. The other girl in my office had it but had the limited calling area and got crappy service.

                              I have Sprint and love it! I have only run into a couple of dead spots in the 3 years I have had it. My brother is a long-distance truck driver and Sprint is the best service he has had yet. He has had Alltell and Verizon.

                              My boyfriend has US Mobile (I think that is the name - US something or another) and his service seems to be as good as mine.

                                Anyone tried Vonage? I've been on them for about a month now and love it. My bill has gone from $79 with Bell South to $27 with Vonage and I have more features!!

                                It uses your broadband to transfer voice over the internet (Voice over IP). Really cool!!
