Question for the VZW people

by celltelchick    Nov 14, 2003, 6:49 PM

Okay, this might be a stupid question, but its one thing changing about the phones and Verizon's system that I have yet to grasp the advantage of. With the new phones coming out being all digital and the system becoming all (or mostly) digital and PCS, I don't understand why that would keep Verizon at a competitive advantage. When people ask me what sets Verizon apart from the competition, I say its our network and the fact that your phone has three different ways it can get a signal, instead of just one or two. I feel like taking away the analog in certain situations is not a good thing. I realize that analog drains batteries faster, and that the crackly, poppy sound is annoying when in that mode, but at least you're getting a signal. So, if someone can, tell me why Verizon would take away the analog mode. Thanks guys, I appreciate it.
