    An interesting rant. 4 phones seems a bit much, but my partner carries
    ATTWS and Verizon just to balance low cost time versus increased coverage.
    I get fair ATTWS Digital (TDMA) coverage in Los Angeles, and really poor
    voice quality in San Francisco, Sonoma and today in Carmel. I uneasy about
    ATTWS GSM, and we've had serious trouble with Cingular and Sprint in the
    past.

    I share you concerns. All I want is a company with good customer service
    and reliable signal. There's one phone I can use Verizon and Globalstar on.
    And Globalstar rates are hi but affordable in the US. Ever think of that
    versus 4 phones?

    "Before the advent of AT&T coast to coast service, I had 3
    AT&T accounts...."

    That was before AT&T introduced their "One Rate" coast to
    coast no roaming charge service in 1999. I switched to the
    One Rate plan and it was a big improvement over what was
    available at the time.

    The absolute worst coverage is down in San Diego. I was
    doing some consulting with a company down there a few years
    ago. We tried ALL of the service providers in the market.
    Nextel was the worst! We had 3-4 different phones in the car
    to try them out. We couldn't get a good connection on any of
    them on the I-5 in downtown SD!

    When I was in LA a few months ago, a radio commentator was
    talking about LA ranking 571st in connection quality among
    cellular market areas in the US. The service along the 210
    between I-5 and the 215 really sucks!

    The folks using Verizon in the Bay Area seem to have a
    little better reception than with some of the other
    providers.

    The best coverage I ever had was with Cellular1 analog with
    a Fujitsu 3 Watt phone. It worked perfectly throughout most
    of California. Uninterrupted coverage from SF to Reno except
    for a few miles in Truckee Canyon!

    One thing that I found is that I usually have been able to
    get better plans when I call and bitch about the service.
    I'm up to 3200 minutes for $199.95 but when I can use the
    time because of bad connections, it doesn't do me much good!

    One Rate plan and it was a big improvement over what was
    available at the time.

    The absolute worst coverage is down in San Diego. I was
    doing some consulting with a company down there a few years
    ago. We tried ALL of the service providers in the market.
    Nextel was the worst! We had 3-4 different phones in the car
    to try them out. We couldn't get a good connection on any of
    them on the I-5 in downtown SD!

    When I was in LA a few months ago, a radio commentator was
    talking about LA ranking 571st in connection quality among
    cellular market areas in the US. The service along the 210
    between I-5 and the 215 really sucks!

    The folks using Verizon in the Bay Area seem to have a
    little better reception than with some of the other
    providers.

    The best coverage I ever had was with Cellular1 analog with
    a Fujitsu 3 Watt phone. It worked perfectly throughout most
    of California. Uninterrupted coverage from SF to Reno except
    for a few miles in Truckee Canyon!

    One thing that I found is that I usually have been able to
    get better plans when I call and bitch about the service.
    I'm up to 3200 minutes for $199.95 but when I can use the
    time because of bad connections, it doesn't do me much good!

    "Before the advent of AT&T coast to coast service, I had 3
    AT&T accounts...."

    That was before AT&T introduced their "One Rate" coast to
    coast no roaming charge service in 1999. I switched to the
    One Rate plan and it was a big improvement over what was
    available at the time.
