caught between 2 towers and 2 service providers

by Juniper / September 14, 2004 2:38 AM PDT

I live in south-eastern PA. Where I live, I am caught between two towers for service that compete with each other. The two areas are Philly and Baltimore. I found this out because I went to Verizon (who I currently have) and complained why I wasn't getting a good signal and many more dropped calls. I just recently moved and had no problems in central NJ. That brings me to my point. I am so sick of Verizon. I have had Verizon for 7 years. Ever since they stopped doing detailed billing they are charging me whatever they want. I have a family share plan. They charged me 5.00 to call 411 on my phone and on my husband's they charged the 1.25. Their phones are out dated and they stink.
I'm not sure if I should go with Sprint or T-Mobile. From this forum all I hear are negative things about T-Mobile. My friend has Sprint and she gets a-lot of dropped calls. I'm looking for a family plan.

Have AT&T cell phones family plan; rarely have any drop calls; previous provider was T-mobile and they are pretty bad; got a lot of dropped calls from them; Sprint service is not too bad.

whatever u do DONT GO WITH T-MOBILE, well first thing. u get to choose how u like to view ur phone bill detail or not u pick, well at least with sprintpcs also since u online, u can view ur detail bill online anytime etc... not sure what are the things u can do n the verizon website even though it looks cheap. we use verizon and sprintpcs and i have to say i stay with sprintpcs, and i never heard of 411 so much money thats crazy, should b a few cents thats it. t-mobile is like a cell phone network made by me and my getto friends without satellite.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
