Replying to: Treo 650 - Cingular or Verizon?? by SwingKid76
Re: Treo 650 - Cingular or Verizon??
The e-mail functionality is identical on either network. Neither limits the functionality any differently. Cingular's data plans are cheaper than Verizon's, so that is a good reason to go with them. Plus, if you are on a data call and a voice call comes in, the device will prompt you as to whether or not you want to interrupt the data call to take the voice call. That's a nice feature in my book. That's a benefit of the GSM network. On Verizon or Sprint, the call will simply go to voicemail. Verizon generally scores higher marks on reception in many places. But again, that's a relative statement. In NYC for example, I find that the Cingular network has improved considerably and I would think it is a wash as to which network you use. But each city is different. In Florida for example, Verizon's network is not on a good frequency, so their service is not particularly impressive. Personally, I use my Treo 650 on the Verizon network in NYC.
