The Federal Communications Commission said it received 2,394 informal consumer complaints targeted at wireless carriers from Nov. 24 through Dec. 24, which marked the first month of wireless local number portability. Complaints almost tripled in the latter two weeks of the month, or since Dec. 8 when the FCC reported approximately 600 complaints had been issued.
Most of the complaints concerned delays in porting numbers between wireless carriers, with less than 5 percent of total complaints directed at delays in porting numbers from wireline to wireless carriers. AT&T Wireless Services Inc. was involved in 1,221 complaints, followed by Spr...

Hands-free in DC (FYI)
The Washington, DC City Council past the sencond law in the nation prohibiting people from using a handheld cellphone while in DC. The law has yet to be signed into law by the Mayor, but if and when it is signed, it will go into effect on June 1, 2004. They say that the first time you are caught you can get out of the fine if you submit a receipt saying that you have purchased a hands-free device (headset or speakerphone) for your phone.
GPS for E-911 and TDMA/GSM issues
I've finally figured out that I'm best served by an AT&T local calling plan, so now it's just the phone selection that's making my head spin. I pretty much use the phone only for basic calls in the Northern VA area, with occasional forays to Maryland/DC and New England, and really could not care less about all the bells and whistles like camera, games, colored screens, email, etc. Most of my life is spent carpooling kids around, so I need a reliable phone to be able to use when I'm running late, in an emergency, etc.
So I thi...

I have had service with sprint, nextel, & verizon. - Currently I am debating wheather I should get the verizon v60p and go with their version of direct connect or should I leave verizon, and go back to nextel and get the motorola I730? - The thing is, that verizon phone service has been really good to me, but I want the ability to have a walkie/talkie feature. - When I had nextel the phone service component basically sucked for the most part, while the W/T feature was great so long as you could get a free line. - If this makes any sense could you please try to give me some guidance on the matter? - Please send email response to: firstname.lastname@example.org - Let me know your thoughts and give me any comparison info. that you can. - Than...

Just need a phone I can trust
We have always experienced a problem with the receive signal strength going from max to zero and calls dropping. This happen even when we are standing still. We have downloaded the new PRL lists until we are blue in the face but it has no effect on the problem.
On a recent dive trip I was trying to make a call with the usual bad results (thank God it was not an emergency) when I looked over and saw my sons girlfriend busy chatting away on her cell phone. I ran over and asked who her carrier was, she said "Sprint." I stood right next to her and tried again to make my call but all I got was "No servi...

Car Phone Kits Integrated with Car Audio?
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I determine if it is even possible and then how to go about it after that?
I have been offered an option that uses a car kit speaker and mutes the car speakers, but I want the sound to come through the car speakers. Am I asking too much if it is not already part of the car's design?
