Replying to:  CDMA or GSM, HELP! by CRCinOklnd   Nov 29, 2003, 1:30 AM

As far as CDMA or GSM in that area I could not tell you because IBM from Texas. However, what i can tell from being a Cingular, T-Mobile, and ATT salesperson is to choose Cingular for you GSM carrier. If you take a look at ATT's map you will notice that their GSM is very very small and it never seems like it grows. T-mobile there's was growing pretty good but it has died down quite drastically in the last 6 months. Now, take Cingular's and in the last 3 months it has grown almost 50%. They say by the end of 2004 that they will have a complete comparison to the old TDMA rate plan coverage areas. So, that to me with a little time, would be so much better than, something that only covers a few cities and a few major highways.

As far as phones the one's you chose for ATT and Cingular, i would only go with one of them.. and that's the LG4050. All the other phones are okay.. the SL56 horrible battery with no features, s56 is okay, but there are better phones, T226 awesome battery life, we have had a few problems with it though. If you are looking for a phone, one i might rec is a Samsung X427 or a Motorola T720. The reason i say that is because the X427 is the same thing as the S307 except it does not have the External Display. In Texas we have it for 100 bucks and a 50 dollar rebate, that's a nice price. Also, the T720 with it's 6.5 hr talk time and tons of extras, for 140 bucks and a 100 dollar rebate it's quite nice as well. However, this month we are coming out with a few more nokias, a new Motorola that is going to be pretty awesome, and the new Samsung P's, however it's kind of pricey.

So my rec is Cingular with it's Rollover minutes, and it's vastly increasing coverage area with the X427 or T720.....
