    I was looking at a coverage map here of CA and Verizon had pathetic
    coverage outside of major metropolitan areas, compared to ATT. Yes?
    No? Better check coverage maps depending upon where you live?

    : coverage outside of major metropolitan areas, compared to ATT. Yes?
    : No? Better check coverage maps depending upon where you live?

    More importantly, before trying any new cell service including
    Verizon, use the trial period (14-days for Verizon) to test the phone
    in the places you will most likely use it. So far, I've not had any
    coverage problems in Portland or along the Oregon Coast, but I admit
    I've not traveled in rural areas much.

    Are you sure the map you saw wasn't just the "extended features" map
    or something, not the true "Verizon Coverage" map?

    : No? Better check coverage maps depending upon where you live?

    More importantly, before trying any new cell service including
    Verizon, use the trial period (14-days for Verizon) to test the phone
    in the places you will most likely use it. So far, I've not had any
    coverage problems in Portland or along the Oregon Coast, but I admit
    I've not traveled in rural areas much.

    Are you sure the map you saw wasn't just the "extended features" map
    or something, not the true "Verizon Coverage" map?
