    AUSTIN, Texas


    Under the terms of the agreement, Cingular Wireless, Sprint PCS and
    Verizon Wireless must provide customers with coverage-area maps that are
    as accurate as current technology allows; give consumers at least two
    weeks to terminate service contracts without incurring penalties; and
    change the way they advertise and sell services and coverage.

    In fact the carriers didn't "admit" to anything of the kind:

    42. Carrier is entering into this Assurance solely for the purposes
    of settlement. Nothing contained in this Assurance may be taken as or
    construed to be an admission by Carrier or as evidence supporting any
    of the allegations raised by the Attorneys General, any matter of
    fact or law, any violation of state or federal law, or any other
    liability or wrongdoing whatsoever, including without limitation an
    admission by Carrier that any of its business practices are or have
    been unfair or deceptive, or violate or have violated any of the
    Consumer Statutes of any of the Participating States, all of which
    Carrier expressly denies.

    And Smith, the Sprint apologist won't admit. The coverage maps are
    worthless and hence the lawsuits and settlement.

    Read the PDFs, not some lame story thats a cut and paste from a
    press release.

    If you haven't seen them, Verizon has better-than-average maps at

    or from the home page | Support | Coverage Locator.
