In a nutshell, I live in Chicago (the City, not suburbs, i.e., tall buildings etc.) and I want a smart phone. It appears that the non GSM providers have lousy phones and GSM service seems lousy.
I use Nextel now and it drops very few calls, but the phones don't have the features that I want, alarm clock, WIFI, email, syncing with Outlook calendar and datebook.
I used to have AT&T's premier GSM/GPRS service and that sucked; I never said goodbye to anyone I called because few calls lasted long enough - the call was dropped. Plus, there were populated, heavy traffic areas where there was no service like on expressways near downtown and some busy places in the suburbs.
I read reports from GSM users that they cannot use their cells in their homes, no reception and that many places in the City provide poor reception. So, if I get a phone that I really want like the new Treo750, that means Cingular, that means old AT&T and that may mean dropped calls, and I hate dropped calls (3500 minutes per month.)
