Only problem on our trip to Fl. and back to MA was the cell phone. The
Nextel was showing no service most of the way. South of DC it was junk. Not
a good feeling at all. Tried to get info from AAA as we reached each state
but if we made contact it would drop the call before we received the info. I
suppose that one the few occasions we got a signal I could have stopped but
that isn't really the idea.
It would seem that I'm going to be making this trip numerous time's, so any
of you folks that travel the I-95 corridor from New England to Fl. have any
thoughts regarding a cell phone service that actually works I'd like to hear
Nextel we had about a year ago?? Verison works for me most of the time. It
seems like I get poor reception sitting at the kitchen table only if the
ceiling fan is on. Figure that one out.. Or maybe somebody is trying to tell
you to move west instead of south?? <BG>
is that there seems to be a "hole" around our house... a friend suggested
getting rid of our metal framed carport canopies... right..
We're on a family plan and had kids with phones in WA and Az all talking fine
with few problems... the only problem we had in years was when we went to N.
Dakota and couldn't get service in a few states along the way... AFAIK they've
made roaming agreements now and solved that..
Nan uses nextel for work and i used to use AT&T for mine.. they both sucked,
all in all verizon does have the best coverage. that can change in
specific areas but verizon has better technology so over all they have
the best coverage, especially on the east coast. nextel has some
pretty old technology which is why they partnered up with sprint or
whoever the heck it was. nextel pprbably has the best "walkie talkie"
coverage right now......even better than their cell coverage but
again, it is based on old technology and they will lose ground quickly
as new tech rolls out. i never understood the walkie talkie part of
cell phones anyway. makes no sense to me. why not just call on the
