Re:Re:Using a t-mobile phone on verizon network
T-Mobile was the first to introduce GSM to the United States. AT&T and Cingular coverted to GSM within the last year or 2. For those of you who live in areas served by US Cellular, they went from TDMA to CDMA, simply because of Verizon, Sprint, and Alltel to name a few carriers using CDMA. I have Verizon Wireless and have little trouble with the service, and reception is even better now that I switched from a Motorola 120c to a Samsung SCH-a650. My phone has analog for when I travel into areas still on analog, especially when I roam on Alltel in Michigan. Verizon's network in NW Indiana is nearly all digital since my phone reads "No Service" in most areas when I force the phone to switch to analog. As for the original poster who thinks Verizon Wirelesss' phones suck; as with all services, some work better than others. Samsung is working better for me than Motorola ever did, but you'll want Samsung SCH-a650 if you want a trimode phone [CDMA 800/1900 and AMPS (analog) 800)]. Kyocera is another good choice for reception. As for another poster who mentioned looking at AT&T if you want to keep the phone you have now on T-Mobile, just be aware that they're about to be acquired by Cingular, so you might want to look at their service instead of AT&T (if Cingular is already in your area) since AT&T customers will eventually be Cingular customers. I personally won't go with them after hearing my family complain about customer service problems with them.
