My question is: Was the Verizon link that you have posted supposed to bring us to a "coverage map"? My next question is: Have we ALL read the disclaimer underneath the Verizon "rate map"? My next question is: How long has it been since Verizon has offered consumers a coverage map?... An actual glimpse of RF propagation from THEIR existing network?...

Nextel's "coverage" maps are just that... A conservative depiction of RF propagation from THEIR own, existing and currently operating, network.

I clicked on "View Map" on your Verizon link... These maps are not coverage maps... Verizon themselves clearly state that within the first sentence.

It is what it is.

Coverage in ANY area is better with Verizon Wireless. Especially when comparing with Nextel.

1st answer, yes clicking the link and then clicking "view map" as stated does show you a coverage map.

2nd answer, yes there is a disclaimer below Verizon's coverage map just as there is on Nextel's (see cut & past below)

Coverage boundaries, shown herein as of Aug 2003 are approximate and for illustrative purposes only. Coverage shown on the coverage maps is a general prediction of outdoor coverage, and does not guarantee that coverage will be available at all covered geographic areas at all times.

3rd answer, there is a coverage map hanging in every retail store for everyone to view as well as coverage brochures available to take wi...

Just because the map might show coverage. Doesnt mean the phone is going to work buddy. AWS shows all of CA covered except basically the Central/east area. People always bitch about coverage. Just ask around chipster. Or take advantage of the Buyers Remorse periods they offer and use the phone in your daily life.
