Ok, whose service do you use and what kind of phone do you have?
I've been a Sprint PCS customer for about 4 years. I only went with them at first because they were the cheapest. The service that first year or two was very spotty. A lot of places I went didn't have service at all but I've noticed a hugh increase in PCS coverage. Now I can't even remember the last time I was somewhere and didn't have a signal.
I have a 3 year old Samsung 8500 flip phone which has been reliable. I've put nearly 500 hours on it and the battery life is still consistant and does a pretty good job at keeping a signal.
BUT, I keep seeing all these new phones and advertisements for their new features. Are they worth getting? I don't care about fancy ringers but I wouldn't mind a Simpsons ringer. I also am not interested in a picture phone.
Do these newer phones have a superior signal reciever or something? or can I expect the same kind of coverage as my current phone? Also, what phone book editing do they allow. My current phone makes it really difficult to organize phone numbers as I add and subtract them over the course of a year.
These color screens are cool, but what's involved with putting your own pictures on them. Is there some sort of associated cost with uploading pictures and sounds to these new phones?
Any other cell phone users out there?
