    Cool site to check reception, dead spots, comments, etc.

    Cell Phone Carriers - Cell Phone Service and Tower Search (part of the mobiledia website) very good user tool.

    Re: Check reception, tower locations, dead spots

    That is one of the better links for tower location. Unfortunately, once you locate a tower, it is hard to tell if it is a cell tower (and which provider). I drove to a local tower and saw a Cingular sign on a door. I found the same tower at that website and it said nothing in description about Cingular. However, I found a closer tower and it did say Sprint in the comments on the website. I guess everyone knows that Sprint has a website of their tower locations. I only wish Verizon and the others would do the same. The coverage maps are not that accurate. It would be nice to know where the towers are located. I can get the 7 digit FCC # that is usually on the tower gate. But this doesn't tell me if a cell phone provider uses this tower and I don't think the FCC website tells this either.

    Also, how close would you need to be to a tower to get good reception? I am checking for the purpose of getting a wireless internet card for my laptop. THanks.

    Thanks for this link. I can use it to check the coverage for the new area I am moving to before I decide on a new carrier or if I the one I have is the best for the area.
