    I am thinking of switching carriers. Can you tell me how the GSM coverage
    is in Gainesville & North Florida in general? Are you satisfied with the
    company in general?

    Thanks in advance... Bruce

    Re: Gainesville, FL coverage?

    NEXTEL is iDEN, not GSM. However, I am a NEXTEL customer in Ocala, and
    travel to Gainesville three times a week (also a UF student), and the
    coverage in and around Ocala and Gainesville (and up US441 or I-75) seems to
    be excellent. The call quality far exceeds Sprint PCS or Alltel, although I
    am not sure about the GSM/TDMA carriers around here because I have not had
    an opportunity to use any TDMA/GSM based service. I know that AT&T didn't
    have any GSM north of Ocala, but with the purchase of US Cellular's assets
    up there they may now be offering it, I don't really know.

    Re: Gainesville, FL coverage?

    i second that. nextels coverage is far better here than in orlando even. it
    works perfectly all over campus where cingular and the others do not. well,
    its not perfect, but i never have a problem. gotta have that disclaimer in
    there in case verizon people feel like pouncing... it worked up near lake
    swan where verizon did not.
