Yeah…but I like Cingular’s phone selection more. Like, the Razr V3, Cingular has it in all the colors (including black) and T-Mobile doesn’t. Also, the Samsung slider phone, D807 which is carried by singular is better than T-Mobile’s T809. Jon.

You are right there. But given the choice, I'd want a smartphone which neither really offers (Nokia 6682 nonwithstanding). Samsung's I'd not consider under any circumstances, their locked down and bolted design irks me . My current phone is a euro-market Nokia 6630 whicuh I bought from an import company unlocked.

It’s a nice business phone, but too bulky for me. Personally, I could, I would import a B&O Serene cell phone. That is if I could pay the $1500 price tag… Jon.

I've had T-Mobile for 15 years. As a matter of fact, it's the only Cell Carrier I've used. So I really can't compare them to others. I suspect that all the carriers are very similar in service and dependability, so the main choices are in the rate plan and the equipment.

BTW Here in Houston, Tx, a new carrier has just come to town called Cricket. Their rate plans are amazing. $49.95 a/mo plus tax for unlimited minutes, with long distance and all calling features. Of course my T-Mobile Rep. said that Cricket's coverage is terrible. But, isn't that what all the Cell carriers say about each other?

Anybody out there know of Cricket, and/or currently use it?

My wife used Cricket back in 2000 I think. Coverage was good but ONLY in-town. They now offer long distance and some limited coverage outside of populated areas. But the all-you -can-eat minutes were good. Oh and the network system and - consequently - phones were POS. Edit: My impression is that they are targetting lower-income brackets - you usually see Cricket shops near Rentacentres and payroll advance places. That would not have bothered me if the service was excellent but that was not the case.

I use Verizon. I originally signed up with Airtouch cellular (7 years ago?) then stuck with verizon when they got bought out. Their network (to me) is great around socal. My only gripe is that verizon seems to be lacking compared to the other providers in terms of phone selection. I dont plan on changing my phone in the near future, so until then, ill probably stick with them.

I hate Cingular, but it's what the vast majority of people seem to have here in Houston, so you know...got to have that free network calling. That is, when I can actually get a connection...which isn't often, especially downtown.

I have had Sprint PCS for 4 years and have been entirely satisfied. I once had a situation in which I had a Wisconsin-only plan. On my vacation to Maine a flight was cancelled and I had to make an hour or so phone call to the airline to get a new flight for the next day. This resulted in 60 Minutes X $0.65/minute = $39.00 or so. I called Sprint and explained the situation, and they waived it down to $5. That's pretty sweet. I've also had excellent coverage and excellent voice quality while on SPCS, which is more than I can say for any other carrier I've checked out.

Not to mention once you've been a customer for a while, you can call them and ask for a better plan, such as what I have:
1,000 Anytime
Unlimited N/W @ 8
Unlimited Roaming
500 Text Messages
Equipment Protection
$46/month
