    A friend of mine got a nice new phone (from AT & T) the other day, so I
    thought I would check into a new phone for my plan, which is Cingular.
    I have no desire to switch companies until I can keep my phone number
    (crosses fingers for November). So the Cingular rep talked me into
    getting a GSM only phone, saying they will be all GSM by the end of the
    year. I left the store with visions of clear phone reception. But to
    my dismay, the reception is no better than my old digital. In fact, its
    probably worse. So luckily I have a three day trial period.

    Has anyone had any good or bad experiences with the GSM phones in
    Chicago? I don't want to rush into taking it back, but I don't think
    its any better, in fact its probably worse. Since the phone will ONLY
    work on GSM, it won't work in remote areas. I've traveled to some
    remote areas, and have always had a signal on my digital phone.

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    Take it back and get a GAIT phone. Usuable on Superhome and
    National(not GSM)Plans. If data is important get the S-E t62u, if not
    get the Nokia 6340i. With either you will have nationwide service on
    800/1900 TDMA (your old digital phone), 850(800)/1900 GSM (your new and
    almost useless GSM phone) and AMPS (analog for out in the sticks). I've
    ben through Chicago with my 6340i and mostly picked up TDMA, that's why
    your GSM experience has been bad. Here in the east side of Detroit, my
    phone usually picks up TDMA and yesterday going all over the Detroit
    area, it only picked up TDMA (only GSM was on ATTWS by my apartment-then
    went back to Cingular AMPS-poor signal area-NIMBY)

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    I think I will just reactivate my 3360, it worked just as well, and is
    smaller than the 6340i, unless you think the 6340i might give me better
    reception. Also, the 6340i is about the only phone with a normal
    keypad.

    Any comparisons between the 3360 and the 6340i?

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    I know that the 6340i has just about the best reception even though it
    has an internal antenna. You'll find that it really isn't that big and
    the phone is even easy to dial with your thumb on the larger keys.

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    The point of GSM isn't to improve reception. It's to increase capacity of
    the network. The Chicago GSM system uses the same towers as the TDMA network
    and GSM is a form of TDMA so the reception is about the same. If you want a
    cute phone with color and lots of complex downloadable stuff, get GSM, if
    phone calls are all you need, go back to your TDMA (3360). If you don't
    travel by car, GSM coverage is not bad in major metro-areas. If you drive
    through N Dakota, a GSM phone is a paperweight....

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    A friend of mine in Chicago is having horrible service with Cingular's TDMA
    system in Chicago. He was also thinking of switching to GSM; however, it
    seems most are saying the service is the same? He is finding Cingular
    virtually unusable in the Chicago area.

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    I wouldn't say it is unusable, but there are definitey spotty areas
    where the reception is bad, and they know it, and don't do anything
    about it.

    Re: Cingular GSM Coverage in Chicago

    It depends on what plan you're on. I am on Cingular Preferred Nation,
    and I have great coverage in the Chicago area, although often it is
    roaming on AT&T...but it's free roaming so it doesn't matter to me. You
    would probably get slightly better coverage with a TDMA plan as you can
    fall back on AMPS if necessary, but it all depends on your calling
    habits. If coverage is that important to you, I would go on a Cingular
    Nation plan (with a GAIT phone, both the Nokia 6340i and SE T62u are
    available to you). They have a good $55 plan that includes 500 anytime
    minutes with rollover, and 5000 n/w minutes, and they will honor n/w
    minutes anywhere in your roaming area (at least that's how it is on
    Preferred Nation).

    ---------
    Not all true. When you are withing 40 miles from Canada, you get GREAT
    coverage from the Canadian providers, even better than from the native
    North Dakota coverage on those areas (especially north of Minot and
    Williston). I know there is some GSM coverage there, and also in
    Fargo/Frand Forks, and soon the Extend America (powered by Nextel)
    network will be running, which will provide GSM to North Dakota, South
    Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Nebraska when it's finished.

    Mobiles 'make you senile'
    By Geoffrey Lean, Environment Editor.
    14 September 2003
    Mobile phones and the new wireless technology could cause a "whole
    generation" of today's teenagers to go senile in the prime of their
    lives, new research suggests
    The study - which warns specifically against "the intense use of
    mobile phones by youngsters" - comes as research on their health
    effects is being scaled down, due to industry pressure.

    From my experience, the 6340i has better reception than the 3360.


    Have a good one,
