    Question Best Cell Phone Service

    Are you happy with your current service? Did you have a service before that was better?

    I still have sprintpcs and want to switch soon!

    I have AT&T Wireless and it works pretty good for me. They have never screwed up the bill as of yet, and I get good service.

    I have SprintPCS and I voted that I hate my service. SprintPCS is one of the worst cellular carrier that I have ever owned. Even Nextel was better. Shesh I hate Sprint.

    EDIT: You cant even have email messages sent to your phone anymore. Why should I subscribe to another service for the ability to have someone send you email at number@sprintpcs.com. I dont care if I cannot reply. I just want free service in viewing received email.

    It was included with my AT&T Service.

    i just got sprint PCS with vision. its pretty sweet imo. i love my phone (sanyo 4900). the service itself is pretty damn good imo. the only problem i ever have with it is when im in my dorm room (which is right next to hell in the basement) so i cant knock it there. i tend to travel around a lot too and so far ive never been roaming (US only). i do think im going to switch over to t-mobile though and get one of those color/internet/email/pda/AIM client PDAs. they look sick.

    Just wait...it'll get worse.

    I have SprintPCS Vision too and the web features seem like they're down more often than they're up. Their website would be a great feature of the service if it wasn't down all the time too. Additionally, their customer service operators are morons.

    Sprint has the capability to be a great service if only they fix all the technical problems with the "Vision" service and their website.

    That is the absolute truth! I realize that I just wanted the features that my t68i can offer me. As long as I have the service that I want, I think I would be able to survive with any service. Cell phone problems are the least of our worries at this present time.

    yeah, talking about operators. I got AT&T, no complaints here. I get good reception just about everywhere, and a nice nokia phone.

    I'm going to say either Cingular or AT&T, depending on where you live (my hometown doesn't have any Cingular reception...that's what I get for living in the largest demographic cul-de-sac in the US).

    OTOH, I'm currently using Sprint PCS. Doesn't work as well at home as the AT&T, but for some reason AT&T (and Verizon for that matter) essentially don't work at all in my dorm (and you'd think that somewhere like UPenn would have universally good reception).

    Ahh, ok. Thanks! So well, I can't complain of mine.. BeeLine (I don't think anyone knows it, since it's a Russian operator ) And the good thing is that it has rowming in more than 100 countries so..

    BTW which Nokia do you have?
