Just curious how the service is. . I've been with Verizon for the last couple of years & while I get reception just about everywhere, my bills are always out of control. This Cingular 1G anytime minutes w/rollover for $40/mo.(even the 850 anytime-free weekends/nights w/rollover $60/mo.) is looking mighty sweet right about now, but I can't **** with it if the service/reception sucks. Any input. . feedback ? Thanks peoples
I have 3 cingular accounts, I've been with them for over 2 years. I dont have any complaints about service..very few dead spots. Hell sometimes they surprise me, I was making crystal clear calls while crossing the cheasepeak (sp) bay bridge in VA. If you ever drove there you'd know why thats something special.

My cousin had Cingular for a while and eventually joined T-Mobile with me. He says they get almost identical service and IMO T-Mobile gets pretty good reception. I can honestly say that he is the only person I've ever known who had Cingular.. Not 1 person out of the 200 people in my phonebook has Cingular..... I would see if they have a trial period where you can try the phone out for a little while... To me, if a phone gets flawless service in my apartment, its a go with me
Cingular has to offer rollover and all this other stuff just to keep up with Verizon. Verizon owns...don't switch to Cingular. As for your overage problem, talk less !! Verizon also has that In-Mobile network that allows you to talk to other Verizon customers for free, regardless of the time. Good luck.
Btw, I've had Cingular, AT&T, and now Verizon. I'll never get rid of Verizon.
^^^ Verizon service is great but their plans are out-dated. Im the type of person that likes to get more for my money, i.e 1,000 peak minutes, free nights, free 3 day weekends, free mobile to mobile minutes and unlimited internet access with T-Mobile. Its impossible to get some of the extra's I have for free because I've been with T-Mobile for 7 years so I have free upgrades..
My mother has Verizon and she only gets 350 minutes for $39.99. Even if you take away all teh extra's I have, you would still have 650 more minutes and free mobile to mobile.. Now if you dont use your phone a lot and dont mind shutting your phone off days or even weeks before your cycle ends for fear of going over minutes, then Verizon is your choice
I've had Verizon for 5 years and although their service is still top notch, their selections of phones are by far the worst. They have 3 strong models now, the LG VX7000, Motorola V710, and the Samsung SCH-A670. Their customer service has gone completely down the drain in the past few years. But if you concerned with reception, I would say to stick with Verizon. You know I do a lot of driving between here and NJ on the regular and there are some spot where other phones don't have recpeptions and I do. Many people ask to use my phone because they don't have a signal.
