    Anyone have any suggestions for cell phone services? When wefirst arrived home, we went with AT&T, but they sucked. Then, we tried Sprint, who we're still presently with, because of the discounts we get due to my being military, but virtually every month it's something new with them (overbilling, adding services we never requested, or service we requested not showing up, them calling to say my payment was never received when my bank statement shows otherwise, and a myriad of other shit). Our plan with them is up this May, and I plan on searching for another service provider. I was looking at NexTel, Cingular, Verizon, and T-Mobile, but would like to know if anyone here has utilized their services and can offer any feedback.

    Thanks!

    They all suck to a certain extent. It really depends on the coverage where you live. For example, I live 20 miles north of New York City. My company has a national contract with AT&T, but the coverage here is horrible. So, I went with Verizon and have been pretty happy.

    In my opinion, there is no clear and definitive "best choice". It's more like a lesser of all evils.

    I agree. There is no ONE clear winner for best service. I have had Sprint and Verizon with no complaints on either.

    However, everyone I know who uses T-Mobile (Voicestream) says it sucks a s s! The common complaints are 1) constant dropped calls. 2) can't get a signal in a building.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys. I went with Verizon yesterday. I still had 5 months left on my contract with Sprint, but I managed to weasel out of that (the military title comes in handy sometimes!). We got a great deal on a shared plan, better than Sprint, and our reception has been outstanding. Much better than Sprint ever provided. I spoke with my wife cell to cell while she drove to work and she never dropped out once. That wouldn't have happened with Sprint. Our replacement plan/insurance was also cheaper than Sprint's. It's only been 2 days, but I'm happy so far. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
