    I had sprint until today. The only thing I liked about sprint is "Dropped
    Call"

    I simply dialed *2 and said "dropped call" and I would get a 50 cent
    credit. This is what everyone should do when they get a dropped call. After
    Sprint got a ton of these call they might do something about the dropped
    calls. Hell I got around 20 bucks a month credit on my bill.

    That is $240 a year!!! So start calling *2 and saying "dropped call"

    bye sprint

    I am going with Cingular. I know it is like jumping out of the fring pan
    and into the fire. Verizon is my only alt., but they do not have very
    good coverage here in the south east.

    Which city are you in? I'm in the Tampa, FL area. I've been thinking
    about Cingular too - those rollover minutes are a nice feature.

    The hp6515 is comming out soon!

    This will replace the old laptop! 150k download speeds, wifi, usb1.1 sd
    men card, Pcoket PC software. Even if I have to start with a regular
    phone and data connect via bluetooth. That makes sprint look like they
    are standing still!

    See John's speed test in the cingular news group!

    Yes rollover!!!!! I would have several hundred min built up and would
    have save 150.00 bucks last month from over min chgs.

    sprint has 10 days left lol

    Oh I was in LA this past week and could not make a call for several
    hours.

    got the *2 to work after a while and guess what 30 min wait on hold to
    get the same old song and dance.

    Remember get free .50 cent for a dropped call by dialing *2 and saying
    dropped call.

    And there are no other new phones or smartphones on the horizon? By
    golly I thought some were even coming out with WM5, not non-upgradeable
    WM 2003 Second Edition.

    Be careful using a word like "will" on a device you haven't yet used,
    let alone own. For instance, you might find out it doesn't actually have
    built-in Wi-Fi. Then you might wonder why you need a third-party app
    just to do photo-caller-ID. Or you might be a little surprised at the
    240 x 240 display (that was the deal-killer for me, even though I did
    like the GPS).

    Doesn't mean you won't like it. But somehow the hyperbole seems to die
    down after the honeymoon's over.

    Not exactly standing still. For one thing, "150k download speeds" was a
    best-case scenario using a laptop and a PC-Card as the connection device
    (and, apparently, not many other users on the tower). Reviews of the
    6515 I've read indicate a much more realistic rate of around 100 Kbps.

    BTW, heard about EV-DO yet? If so, any idea how that stacks up against
    EDGE?


    > See John's speed test in the cingular news group!1


    Oh my gawd, you're talking about John Navas, right? BWAAAAAAAAA!!!!

    I briefly considered Cingular a few weeks ago (and there was NO way they
    could come close to matching what I'm paying now--and that includes
    unlimited data on three phones, one of which is a PDA-phone).

    But I hadn't considered the downside of having John around in the
    Cingular NG. What a drag that would have been.

    And when you do get that PDA, and get a proper plan for it, that $150
    will be like chump change. But it was nice of you to ignore SPCS F&F
    plans, which would likewise have avoided extraordinary overages. Now if
    you come back and say that you're on a retention deal that no F&F plan
    can touch... well... neither will Cingular.


    > sprint has 10 days left lol


    No carrier is perfect. But you are seemingly building yourself up for a
    let-down. The Cingular NG isn't exactly devoid of complaints.

    100k is plenty for SSH a little slow with term service. I have read only
    1 review from a "real" user so far and it is non-techinal.

    Only in big cities. I can use edge almost every where there is coverage.
    That is lots of places that I get AMPS only with sprint. No digital
    services like voice message notice.

    I would have to sign up for 2 more years of sprints lack luster coverage
    in my area. (Unless you call amps coverage)

    John is not so bad, if don't like his post>plonk in killfile

    I have talked to people that use cingular and asked the right questions
    like "dropped calls?""dead areas" etc... and sprint can not match the
    coverage.(not even close) You must be in a large city where everyone has
    towers everywhere. Rural areas sprint relies on roaming and your digtal
    service disappears with it.
