Cell Phone Coverage? [Jun. 27th, 2005|09:45 pm]

Ok I have a question for those of you who use Cell Phones around here. What service do you use, and how does it work in the surrounding areas?

I currently have RCC/Unicel and the coverage is OK until you get out of the immediate Franklin County area. Like if I go up the Mohawk Trail towards my apartment, it will decide to switch to using Cingular towers which is just bad news if I want to use the phone.

Plus considering Franklin County is their only home region in Massachusetts. If you're heading north into Vermont or New Hampshire I hear the service works well.

Any opinions on other carriers?

Sprint?
Cingular?
T-Mobile?
Verizon?

Go with Cingular. They own most of the towers in the area.

I've heard the best things from Cingular and Sprint. I have Cingular and have really good service, except where no one else does. Example of at my friend's house in Easthampton:

In his Kitchen: Cingular 4 bars, Verizon 3, Sprint 3, T-Mobile 0.
In his Basement: Cingular 4, Verizon 0, Sprint 0, T-Mobile 0.

I recommend Cingular. It works very well in surrounding areas. Not sure what else to say.. I'm kind of half asleep right now.

ps. I used to have Unicel.
