    Default Which Cell Phones are the best???

    OK, I'm going to be joining the 21st Century very soon. To make a long story short, I don't want to support Qwest and their monopoly here in Oly so I decided to get myself a cell phone. I'm looking for feedback, tips, etc... I'll give you guys/girls/wookies a little to go on for recommendations and probably answer some questions some may have... It will be my only phone so I'm thinking like 700 to 1000 minutes a month. I don't need text, video phone, or any other unneccesary stuff. I need a phone to call and receive calls only. Other than that, I'm pretty open.

    Thoughts???

    Thanks...

    I have Cingular. We were with AT&T for years, the service sucked, the only reason we stayed with them was we needed our numbers for business reasons. Once we were able to move and keep our numbers we bailed. Cingular just offered us a good deal and it the service is the best I have ever had. I used to not get cell service at my home so I had to carry a pager with me - IT SUCKED ASS!! Once we made the switch I had full service at home and all the surrounding area's. I use a Nokia, it has standard features, most of witch I dont use. I do like the speaker phone feature as well as the calender. I dont find myself playing games on my phone. It charges fast and holds a charge for a long period of time, I think 48 hrs if not used maybe longer. We pay $100 per phone for 1000 minutes a month. We dont have limits on what time we can make calls or anything like that. Another nice feature Cingular sold me on was that they bank the minutes we dont use. I think I have like 5000 minutes banked, so if I ever go over my banked minutes kick in.

    And thats about what its worth.

    Your next cell phone should be the one that shuts itself the fuck off when you go into movie theaters.

    Think about how you'll use the phone. Then get one that meets those needs.

    I've used Verizon and T-Mobile. Both have good customer service, but T-Mobile has really impressed me. Anytime I've needed them to do anything, they've exceeded my expectations.

    None of that means anything if you can't get service, though. Have a look at the coverage maps and make sure the places you frequent get coverage. With Verizon, I could get coverage in my favorite state park, right at my favorite camp site. With T-Mobile, I can't. That makes camping much more satisfying.

    I hate cell phones. I have always hated them due to the reception on both ends. I get pissed off when a customer calls me on a cell and the connection gets cut off, then they call back and bitch at me because their cell phone sucks. LOOK, I do not sell phones, so chill the fuck out. Cell phones suck. Cordless drills, cordless framing nailers and recip saws are cool though.
    Just go for it!

    Hey, me too, and for many reasons. They can be useful, but they are also way overused by most people.

    They all suck, especially here in the sticks where I live. I won't have one. I don't really like people calling me at the house let alone while I'm at the store or in my freaking car!
