cell phone service

In addition to getting a place to stay I need a cell phone.

So I have a three question survey with the first question being the most important, and the last question being the least important.

1. If you have a cell phone what service did you get. ( Important because if you are my friend I will most likely want to call you, and it will probably cost me less if most of my friends have the same service provider as me so that I get free mobile to mobile )

2. Would you recommend the service you have?

3. As a follow up to question 2. Why?

I have a verizon cell phone. Prior to that I had a t-mobile. Verizon is okay. I think verizon is more expensive than other services, but it certainly has better coverage than t-mobile, in my experience.

If you are not planning on using you cell phone too much I would go with a pay-to-go or whatever service. It's so much cheaper and you don't have to deal with stupid contracts.

When I got my verizon cell phone I paid 400$ for the phone and that was supposed to be without a 2 year agreement, I was still stuck with a two year agreement. It was primarily my fault for not double checkig... so be careful when you go to get a phone to double check everything.

So for question 3... I have mixed feelings about verizon because it is more expensive, but it's also better than t-mobil in that it provides for better coverage, in my experience.

i use sprint because my dad and some of my friends had it and i figured my dad had done the research so i didnt need to as well, but you already knew that
aside from the time we went way over our plan and had to pay a million dollars, i think it's been fine. sometimes i have trouble getting 5 bars, but when i was in pdx i never really had trouble that i can remember.
also i dunno much about alltel but i saw a commercial for them saying you can pick people, no matter what cell service they use, to be in your group and then call all of them free
