You need to find out from your cell carrier if towers are close to where you live, but remember not one cell service has towers every where one might need to go or live. Text comes in handy when calls can't go thru. Visit www.phonescoop.com for many answers and comparisons. This web site has given me so much info before I made my decision on which cell phone to buy. Also mobique.com is a good site
I live in a very rural area. The maps that i look for service (verizon gets the best in my area) say that i should get service but it does not come in well. Which phones get better service reception then others? are there any or are they all the same? I am goign to buy a cell phone soon but i have no idea which one to buy. If anyone could respond to this i would really appreciage it.
