    My wife is on Cingular and is about ready to upgrade her phone and
    calling plan (she has an older TDMA phone)

    Unfortunately, we live in a cellular "black hole" where, regardless of
    carrier, signals are very weak (Cingular, Verizon, & Sprint don't work
    well here at all!)

    So I'm wondering what phones we should look at and what phones we
    should avoid?

    Thanks!

    Dave

    Reception-wise most of the GSM Nokias are terrific, in my experience.
    The Nokia 6200 is known to be a super signal holder. My 3120 is
    outstanding as well. Sony-Ericssons are hit or miss. Motorolas are
    fine for reception, if you like Motorola phones. I generally don't.
    Can't speak about LG since I've never owned one.

    You don't say where you are, but you might check on the availability of GAIT
    phones in your area. The phones are rapidly being phased out but the
    technology will work on available GSM, TDMA and Analog networks. They're
    great for rural areas.
