    He isn't waffling: he has always said that Alltel has better coverage, so
    the Alltel toyphones in his area work better than the VZW toyphones. He
    calls them toys because they use much less power than the analog phones used
    to and they can't contact towers as far away as the analog phones could.

    Alltel just happens to work better in his part of the world because they
    have more towers, not because they have "better" phones.

    So, what he said is NOT inconsistent with what he's said in the past.
