CDMA or GSM, HELP!
I am a current Verizon user in the S.F.-Bay area, and have excellent service with them for 4 years now. But I have been intrigued for a long time with GSM service and the phones connected with it. I need peoples input and opinions here. Is GSM better than CDMA and why? I heard the voice quality is better, but is it by much? A year or two ago, I heard GSM was terrible here(as far as signal strength, dropped calls, etc)...has it improved? From what I've seen on the maps and from what co-workers and friends say, it is yes. Now if I decide to go GSM's way, I've decided to go with either AT&T or Cingular, because they have the upcoming 850 frequency besides the already existing 1900. T-Mobile only has 1900 from what I've seen.
Renewed contract without consent... what should i do?
What do you want?
I need one (it interacts with my car), but they all seem to fall a little short in terms of quality, size or cool-factor.
What do you guys think?

However, things have been also been getting a bit ugly here from time to time. In the interest of keeping this a constructive and useful forum, I'm going to be moderating a bit more from now on.
Here is some more information about what to expect:

Attn; Must Read!!!!
I can only hope that their phone banks were swamped with smart customers tired of dealing with their ATT crappy service/infrastructure.
My Christmas wish for 2004.... ATTWS files for bankruptcy!!!!
Att vs Sprint
Gotta hand it to ATTWS...
offering one service, but actually providing something
very different is second to none.
Very much like the mother company's oh-so-honest
ad campaigns comparing cable and satellite.
In this case..., I'm talking about their support for
GAIT phones wrt their Digital One Rate plans.
I'm one of those poor souls who has two actual
residences..., unfortunately..., one of them is not
in an AT&T service area.
I've been an AT&T customer since their take-over
of Cell-1. By and large, I've been pretty happy with
the service..., but for several reasons, the time came
to get a new plan and phone.
I needed good roaming and I needed data. So..., a
GAIT phone made sense, as did the di...

And according to their coverage maps, they seem to cover the exact same areas. So it seems to me, that their coverge area really wouldn't increase at all if any. What do you think?
Need advice on what GSM phone to choose
A few daya ago, our local paper, the "Gainesville Sun", here Gainesville, Fl., (32614). In their tech section where they dicuss everything from the internet to the On-Star system to cellular carriers, had this to say.
In the beginning of 2004, they said ATTWS will be available here, and they will have Gainesville numbers for those who want to sign with ATTWS.
I had heard a rumor in the past about this, and I was hoping they would be coming to my area. But it is now in writing in our local paper, my question to you is: "Have you heard or do know, when this will happen for sure?"
Please, all I ask is this, if y...
ATTWS to take over our service - what to expect?
I can't get ATTWS or Rural Cellular to talk to me about it.
So, just curious as to what we can expect in the way ATTWS will deal with our existing plans, rates, etc. Will they offer incentives to get us to sign new contracts (we're out of contract now)? Existing service is straight TDMA at this time.
NorCal AT&T vs. T-Mobile
Anyone have opinions on AT&T vs. T-Mobile for the Bay Area? Also, are the phones I mentioned the way to go? Thanks in advance!!
You Have To Read This!!
That "crash dummy" better known as "Emurillojr" hasn't got a clue. "Emu" short for that Australian bird, probably goes "dumpster diving" for dinner!!
I am ashamed to be even remotely related to any of them, as I do work for AT&T Wireless.
Attn: Foxfire and all ATTWS Reps.!
I think Attws might might survive this battle, but they'll be in a big hurt.
What I don't understand is, where is everyone? I have been to the other forums, it seems everyone is in a coma. To bad, I miss the banter.
Check out Forbes mag. and the tech. mags. Attws at this time has the hightest defecting rate of all the carriers. I think Sprint is a close second.
Okay all you ATTWS REPS.! I know you read this stuff, but for some reason you prefer to not jump in. I guess you ATTWS REPS, believe in that line, "If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen'...
Any good CSR stories?
