What does everyone recommend for cell phone companies? I been looking at amazon.com for buying a new cell phone and choosing the right network. 1. I was really interested in Cingular, it seems they offer the best priced Family plans due to there "roll over minutes". One thing I dislike is there coverage map. Cingular seems to be #2 provider by coverage. I really like some of there phones they offer as well as amazon.com seems to be offering them -$24.95 (credit to take a phone with new contract). I really need good coverage and I would like to have a nice looking phone as well. 2. Version was my second choice. They seem to have the same pricing plan wise as Cingular without the roll over minute option. I was looking at a coverage map on verizonwireless.com and they have, by far the best coverage then any wireless phone provider. (well, not satellite but thats another story, like $10,000 more in minutes in a years time..) Sprint seems to have one of the worse networks there is. I have Nextel (radio phones) which is now Sprint. They just upgraded our area and put flyers on the door saying a new tower was put up! BULL!!!! I still have to walk down the road to get a single. If you call my cell right now its out of service and while I'm driving it drops signel a few things passing by a few different schools where on there coverage map it shows FULL service but its not. I'm going to put my nextel phone to sleep ($4/month) and once the 8 months left runs out I'll cancel it as I can not handle walking down the road to use my cell anymore. T-Mobile is another bad network, they have less coverage then Sprint does in the US, but there pricing is better then the rest. Anyways, I really have my eyes on Verizon Wireless and Cingular. Matter of fact, I ordered 4 phones (replacing 4 nextels) on Wednesday and I canceld the order on Thursday due to viewing the coverage map for Cingular. I hear alot of bad feedback regarding Verizon Wireless phones tho. They "block phone features", "load the verizon os on phones". I have never used anything but Primco (think thats Verizon) I canceled after my phone was stolen and did not have a phone for a while and then about 5 years ago I got a Nextel and been with them since. One BIG problem with Verizon is I don't like the phones offered from amazon.com, which is about what Verizon offers too. They are very ugly. They also seem to be a bit high in price for a Verizon Wireless phone under a new contract. I'd be better off buying unlocked new phones from ebay.com and not having a contract with verizon. I'm sorry for posting so much, but if I'm about to sign a 2 year contract with another cell phone provider, I need to make sure they are not as worthless as nextel/sprint. I searched google and did not find a more current question like mine, I also checked these forums out and they all seem a bit old, or none related to my question. If I overlooked something please link me. If not, just post some new thoughts. Thanks in advanced! EDIT I have to say tho, Sprint seems to have the nicest phones on the market right now (Aug 11th, 2006). There network just... ..you know. SUCKS!
