    Where in Illinois does ATT work and VZW not work?

    BTW, off the topic of this thread, I have a friend who has had ATT for 25
    months and I'm wondering whether his phone is TDMA or GSM (I assume TDMA).
    All he knows is that it's a Nokia. Chicago market.

    Please re-read my message. I said nothing about VZW except
    that I was considering dropping AT&T in favor of VZW.

    I was complaining about AT&T's crappy service on the East
    and West Coasts.

    I was in the Newark, NJ area on Sunday and Monday and the
    AT&T coverage sucked!

    Tuesday and Wednesday I was traveling all over NW Illinois
    and the service was great!

    I don't really care much whether the connections are digital
    or analog when I'm in an extended range situation. I just
    want to be able to send and receive intelligible calls
    without being dropped every 10 seconds!

    You quoted "people" as saying "Nobody's phones work out here." I
    interpreted "nobody" as including VZW. You have AT&T. Therefore, AFAICT,
    you are claiming that AT&T works in places in Illinois and Indiana where
    VZW doesn't. I would like to know where those places are.

    you are claiming that AT&T works in places in Illinois and Indiana where
    VZW doesn't. I would like to know where those places are.

    I made an anecdotal comment do I get graded on it?

    If you must know, several years ago I was traveling around
    central Indiana on business. The people I was with were
    business professionals who live in the area so I assume that
    they were savvy about cellular service in the region. They
    made that comment.

    It was in the rural area between Monticello, Lafayette and
    Logansport. The signal wasn't great but at least I could
    make and receive calls.

    Someone I was working with in rural Illinois west of Chicago
    made a similar comment last fall. He currently uses T-Mobile
    but has tried all of the major carriers.

    There, happy!

    My rant was about the declining quality of AT&T's service!
    If you re-read my original message I stated that I'm
    considering switching to Verizon!

    Foreyes has a special running on glasses!
