Yup, totally true. My contract expires this week and I was thinking if I should stay with AT&T until it becomes Cingular (will they give out new phones?? well, doubt it) or switch to Cingular. Sadly, Cingular's plans seem kind of expensive, they have an activation charge, and their phones seem to be more expensive. I'm leaning towards GSM providers, because it's the best call quality I've ever used. Are AT&T and Cingular the only GSM providers?Originally posted by cyboexpo2002@Apr 25 2004, 05:30 PM
Cingular is buying out AT&T, and the new expanded Cingular will have an excellent network. I flew into AT&T before the merger cause the contracts were cheaper. The networks are identical, I'm on the GSM network, and it's superior to anything I've used before: Verizon (CDMA) and before that the old SNET (now Cingular) analog network.
Yes, they have service here in Dallas. But we used to have T-Mobile when they were known as VoiceStream, but that was last year. The customer service was great, the phones were great, the reception was aweful. When they became T-Mobile the reception slightly improved...but it still stunk. Could it be because they're still new?Originally posted by cyboexpo2002@Apr 25 2004, 06:42 PM
I think T-Mobile has a GSM network as well... but I'm not sure if they have service down by you...
Thanks! I was thinking of switching to Verizon.Originally posted by MelvinJ@Apr 25 2004, 09:03 PM
I'm really happy with Verizon. Consumer Reports ranked them No. 1 in virtually every major market in customer satisifaction. I've found that their plans are typically about $5/month higher than the others, but for the lack of problems, it's worth it.
