The good: Color, Nice phone with great features. <p/>The bad: No web Access<p/>Summary: This a great stylish flip phone with good features such as chat and voice command. Good antenna, gets good reception. Nice bright display but kinda small. But overall a great TDMA phone.
The good: Great customer service, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and professional. From what I've found, it's the cheapest cell phone service available. Great coverage all over the US. With their roaming agreements, I can (and do) use the phone all over the world. Since it's GSM (the world standard everywhere except in Japan) I save money in countries I frequent by using a prepaid sim from the local country I'm visiting, giving me free incoming calls.<p/>The bad: Roaming outside of the US (with T-Mobile's sim installed in my phone) is expensive (though less so than their competitors). Drop more calls than I'd like, though don't think that it's worse than anyone elses service. Web site is pathetically slow even on my blazingly fast broadband connection.<p/>Summary: Been with T-Mobile since the old Omnipoint and Voicestream days. Cell phone coverage in the US, even in a big city like NY, is not 100%. There are still small coverage gaps and areas where the service is spotty and coverage is poor (like at JFK Airport). One nice feature on their web site; a street level coverage map of the US, where you can reliably check the coverage quality at a specific address, like at your house or place of employment.
The good: Great service.<p/>The bad: Hard to download ringtones sometimes.<p/>Summary: Alltel wireless is worth paying for. Its service is the best I've ever had from any wireless carrier. It also gives you a good coverage area. I strongly recommend that you should get Alltel wireless.
The good: Excellent rates.<p/>The bad: Flukey service.<p/>Summary: Strangest thing - I seriously can stand at the corner of the front yard and be in my home range. But in the driveway, I'm in roaming! Other than that, NTelos service has been about par with the other two cell phone services I've used, but recently I've noticed a decline. Apparently, towers are being taken out of service in the roaming areas and are not being replaced. This is causing calls not to be received and voice mail not being forwarded until I'm back in my home range.<br>
The good: Great coverage, no dropped calls, reasonable rates, super customer service<p/>The bad: None.<p/>Summary: I have had Verizon Wireless service for 18 months and it has been flawless. Great coverage, no dropped calls, reasonable rates, and super customer service. I have had other wireless services in the past, but I would have to rate Verizon as the BEST! Thank you and keep up the great service!
GREAT for worldwide connection and some more remote US locales. We work and live out at the edge of coverage in Maine and New Mexico. In addition, we travel to Mexico and Europe a lot. T-Mobile works almost everywhere and, with planning, is inexpensive. <br>No roaming charges! Customer service seems a little sleepy...
This company is the best get it. THis cingular is the best thing i have traveled around the world and have used it its great because it works anyware and its even getting better because of gsm/edge/gprs thoose networks are good i recomend this company everybody should go.
The good: Coverage everywhere. If no one else has coverage US Cell is certain to have it. Beats Verizon and all others in the midwest. Price is reasonable and they have options for 7pm nites and weekends.<p/>The bad: Few Phone choices, no or very limited data transfer ability, not going to be cutting edge. <p/>Summary: If you want your cell phone for what it is for. To make a call no matter where you are. Then I recommend US Cell. If you want the latest Bluetooth, Wi-Fi phone and email and IM ability go somewhere else.
The good: Cingular backs their product up. Their sales team is very knowledgable and can usually fix all problems right over your phone. Saves time going into the store. I have been with Cingular for 9 years for a reason!<p/>The bad: Like all service plans, watch out for "hidden" fees, ie., text messaging, road side assistance, etc. There have been times where a charge of $2.95 will pop up on my bill from something I never activated. Once you call, it will be immediately removed.<p/>Summary: I would recommend Cingular over other carries, in general. They all have their disadvantages but Cingular does stand by their product and service.
The good: - Most affordable plans from all providers in my area.<br>- Good signal in most places<br>- Flexible in changing programs, adding phones, etc.<p/>The bad: - No signal in some places<p/>Summary: Overall I think it is the best price around for the family plan. The only downside is that there is no signal in some areas in the city where I live.
The good: I like that I can access my bill, and usage minutes, online... Also, I have no complaints with the customer service I've received... The plan I use allows my husband, my son, and me to share minutes at a very reasonable cost... <p/>The bad: WAY too many 'dropped' calls and 'dead' zones!! It can be very frustrating at times... <p/>Summary: Cingular is a good choice to fit most of my needs, though I'd really like them to work on expanding their coverage area...
The good: No contract fees. My son-inlaw got ripped off and couldn't do anything until contract was up. Terrific service,Can us walkie talkie to talk to anyone that has walkie talking on boost and nextel. Crystal Clear sound. Can download music if you don't like whats on the phone , to change ring tones. That way if you want you can have different ring tones for different people. <p/>The bad: Have to keep up with minutes. Kinda pain in ass when you run out of minutes and have to call it in to get it again. But honestly not that bad.<br><p/>Summary: I honestly reccommend to everyone. If you have teenagers and want to know where there at you can get you and them a phone and just walkie talkie them and find out where there at. Wish I had this when my kids was teenagers.
