service with 5180

by tasthree    Jun 11, 2009, 10:07 AM

We have had two Nokia's 5180ip since about 03. I can't recall what the service was back then but the last time my wife traveled with her's south thru central Ga and Fl she didn't get any service. Last fall I was in Jax Fl for a couple days and I didn't get any service with mine. These areas are listed under service coverage on the web sites maps. Could someone offer a reason why we weren't receiving any service. Is it because the old 5180 is only 800 mhz and Verizon,Sprint put out a dual 800 and 1.9 mhz. That maybe we were in a area putting out only 1.9 mhz. My phone always did get better reception than her's so we gust got a LG200c for her. Since its dual channel do you think our problem will be solved. Getting ready to go out of state and want to make sure of getting service. Thinking of getting a Verizon prepaid phone and doing away with one of the Tracfones. Also if I let those 5180s run out of service date could they be reactivated because I don't think they have 911 aGPS in them.Thanks
