Re: [vox] [OT] Looking for cell phone suggestions



I have AT&T Wireless now, and I think I am TDMA(Nokia 3360.) I apologize in
advance if this is GSM, I am somewhat ignorant when it comes to cellular
phones and technology.  My only problem(take this with a grain of salt, as I
have had them for < 1 week) is when I go over by Watt near Baseline Rd, I
have nada for coverage.  It is exactly like when I had Sprint PCS before
they upgraded their coverage.  But for most areas I go, it works decently,
and I like the sound quality better than with Sprint.  My only dealings with
AT&T customer service have been decent.  They handled quickly and properly a
minor error I made when ordering the bugger.

Mike
