I believe yes, it is tri-mode (last time I checked).

Isn't there a difference between tri-mode and analog? I'm thinking that tri-mode refers only to the CDMA network and that analog is something different.

Tri-mode is typically used with CDMA, being CDMA (digital) 800 & 1900 mhz frequencies, and 800 AMPS (analog)backup for where a CDMA signal isn't available. I find that my Verizon Wireless phone goes to analog when I hit the state line from Indiana to Michigan before my phone goes back to digital, since the Michigan side of the state line is Alltel and not Verizon Wireless like it is on the Indiana side.

Verizon & LG-VX6100 in Northern Michigan

Dave,

You might be the perfect person for the advice I am seeking. We have a cottage in the Petoskey-Boyne City area, and I was wondering if Verizon/LG VX6100 combination would work well in this area? Any analog roaming charges or dead spots? Any other advice that I should consider.

Thanks,

J.T.

Verizon & LG-VX6100 in Northern Michigan

J.T.,
I'm looking for a phone and service for use in metro Detroit and the Grayling area. I am seriously considering Cellular One www.cell1mich.com as they cover the entire state, and have no grayed out areas. I know this doesn't guarantee service everywhere, but the people who live up north tend to use Cellular One.

If you go to their site, check out their travel plan, as it offers the most coverage, including the UP and northeastern Michigan. Rates aren't bad, but you'd have to actually get your phone and service from one of the dealers in the Cell One areas, or you could use a CDMA phone that you now have. You would also have their area code, which may or may not be a problem for you.

L.V.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
