Ive had three of those wireless phone providers, and one a friend of mine had. I would recommened Cingular or T-Mobile. Both of these services have free roaming and long distance. I personally like Cingular better because of the roll over minutes, and reception is great in Washington, South Carolina, and Hawaii. Those are the places Ive taken the phone.... ANy way I hope this helps.
yeah, this will be my first cell phone. i'm a luddite. i've done some research but i'm more undecided than before.
plan should be <= 40$. 300-600 minutes airtime (guessing). unlimited nights and weekends.
phone doesn't need to have camera, internet, or bluetooth. voice dialing, speakerphone, and text messaging are necessary. mp3 ringtones would be nice.
i live in DC. 90% of my calls will be within the metro area. 10% will be to a handful of out-of-state locations. i take occasional trips and would like the phone to work in case of a highway emergency.
tmobile, sprint, cingular, verizon? i'm lost.
