Bay Area GSM Useless? CDMA better?
Are the dead spots in downtown Mountain View on GSM or TDMA?
I live in Palo Alto, but I'm pretty much traveling back-and-forth between Palo A., Mountain V., Menlo P. and Los Altos.
I used to have TDMA up until 2 years ago and it was pretty much awesome. Then I went to Verizon to get the V60c which was also flawless except for one big, solid black hole in downtown Los Altos, so last year I returned to AT&T, but decided to try out their GSM network instead, and I have to say that I'm pretty dissapointed. I've been thinking about going back to TDMA even if their phones are....bland. However, I've heard some people mention lately that even their TDMA net isn't up to what it used to be. (The reasons being anywhere from ATT not maintaining their TDMA towers any more as they deteriorate, to TDMA having to share space with GSM). Anyone know if that's true? Would I be better off back with Verizon's CDMA?
All thing being equal, from purely a reception/coverage standpoint (not data, or cool phones etc). which network do you think is the best for the lower peninsula/upper south bay?
Thanks in advance for your opinions!
