What cellular service do you use?
« on: July 14, 2003, 01:04 AM »
So who's your cellular provider?  I originally used Primeco, switched over to Sprint PCS, and then went back to Primeco.  Well, Primeco is now called US Cellular, and their service is great!  I get 300 anytime minutes (which is plenty for me) for $29.99/month, and it also includes free long distance.  I did get screwed on a roaming charge recently, but that's life I guess.

Do you even have a cell phone?  I don't know what I would do without mine, because I use it all the time.  Plus the "roadside assistance" I pay for ($3/month) has helped me a few times when I really needed the help.  I don't go anywhere without my cell phone.

I had Sprint, but I was really tired of it's bad reception whenever I went downstairs in a building or basically anywhere without a good view of the sky.

I switched to Verizon, and the Jury is still out on them. They're cheaper....but they don't have those cool camera phones I keep drooling over.

What kind of picture quality do those camera phones have?  I couldn't imagine them being very good quality... probably 640x480 at best.  Just curious.

I believe it's not even 640*480.

My friend has one, and they are really cruddy resolution (but they look great on the phone).

I just want one because it's the gadget I don't have yet, and I'm feeling left behind.

If I could get a new phone it would be a Palm-based PDA and cell phone combination.  It's a pain in the booty to carry both a PDA and cell phone.

I use the local All-tel company but the kids have "trac-fones".  They have great reception for living in the Upper Peninsula ( no digital towers yet, wait there is one-it's at MI Tech University in Houghton).  Soon we are suppose to get a few digital towers and then I'll probably get one of the slim line versions.

I use Sprint also. My Dad has one of those camera phones, and the pictures look best on the phone. My phone can recive pictures, but it can't take them.

That makes a whole lot of sense now, doesn't it?   :P

I meant my cell phone, but I'm serious! It has the ability to recieve pics, but can't take them because it doesn't have a camera.
