Re: tri mode v dual
Constant busy signals. God forbid you ever try to talk while moving, because the handoff from one tower to the next would probably drop you completely, since the tower it was trying to transfer you to is in all likelihood full.
No wireless net, no high-speed digital transfers, no TXT, nothing.
People have such fond memories of their analog phones...but when analog phones were out there were much fewer cellular users out there, probably 95% fewer. Simply put, if there was a completely analog system across the US, cell phones would be horribly expensive, and a technical nightmare to maintain.
Verizon is not making a Digital/Analog dual mode phone. They have areas that run purely on PCS bandwidth, which was the point of the Tri-Mode.
