    Ok, I'll bite. If you only have analog service where you live, why are you
    staying with SPCS?

    You should probably look on EBay for an old 2 watt bagphone! You will
    get far more bang for you bug up there in Nome.

    I got the A620 because it had a camera as well as AMPS (the only service
    here in Nome). I don't know if a bagphone would do me much good as far as
    reception or anything like that because the local tower only has a range of
    several miles (basically line-of-sight, if you can't see nome, you won't be
    getting good reception).

    I don't know much about the A620, but, can you buy an external antenna
    adapter for it? If so, there are several vendors out there who sell
    bidirectional cell-phone signal amplifiers (essentially turning your
    phone into a bag phone). You'll also need an external antenna. I
    myself have an amplifier, and it does help in rural fringe areas.
    Mine works on both CDMA and AMPS, and is FCC approved.

    A bag phone will have a more powerful transmitter [usually about 10 times
    that of your A620] and a much bigger antenna indicating that it should
    have more sensitive reception. In the end, I am sure you will do better
    with one if you must use AMPS only in an area such as yours.
